HARBETH LAUNCH NEW MODEL AND STAND RANGE AT MUNICH HIGH END
Hall 3 Stand F12

REDEFINING THE CLASSIC BBC MODELS, HARBETH ANNOUNCES THE M40.2

Successor to the BBCs old LS5/8 monitor loudspeaker, Harbeths new incarnation launched at the Munich High End has improvements on all fronts over the 1970s two-way. Boasting engineering excellence for the digital era, it is a significant upgrade to the award-winning Monitor 40.1 model.

Such has been the runaway success of Harbeths Super HL5plus worldwide, that designer Alan Shaw took a close look at his M40.1, the BBC LS5/8 replacement. First made for the broadcaster in 1998, the Monitor 40 was a major leap forward in monitor loudspeaker design.

The three-way Monitor 40 solved the inadequacies of that old BBC model, which attempted to force a 12-inch polypropylene bass unit to behave as a midrange as well. says Harbeths Alan Shaw, An idea doomed from the start; no wonder BBC engineers struggled with the LS5/8s weird sonic balance.

Winning awards around the world, the Harbeth design has now been upgraded to a new generation with a totally revised crossover and increased sensitivity.

The new model is on display at the Harbeth stand where a new range of Bavarian-designed and built stands will be unveiled.

Harbeths are on demo at Absolute Phase.
