These are ex-demonstrator speakers. The sound is amazing from these maxi-monitor speakers! Note that one speaker was dropped from a very low height (more like slipped), and has experienced very a very slight blemish. Luckily it is at the bottom/rear so completely out of view when setup. Speakers are priced accordingly. If you need stands I'm happy to work out a deal - stands pictured are my own DIY, not included.
"Many are called, but few are chosen. It is a startling experience to sit in front of these large boxes and hear sound that has no box character at all." - 'The Absolute Sound' Magazine, USA
More efficient, more adaptable to a wide range of listening environments, perfectly balanced and more transparent and engaging, the M40.2 takes the Harbeth sound to a new level.
