High End 2017: Harbeth 40th Anniversary continues with new M30.2 loudspeaker

You know what’s exciting? New stuff. Especially when that new stuff is from a beloved brand. Today, Harbeth, is announcing a nifty-new thing — the latest update to their amazing line of “studio monitors”, the M30-series. The M30 is a two-way stand-mount speaker, and for a very limited time, Harbeth is selling a super-special secret-squirrel edition with some nifty audiophile upgrades. Pricing will be announced shortly, but if they follow the recent trend, the new40th anniversary version will sell for a modest up-charge over the regular base price.
