Throughout the year Harbeth has been commemorating its 40th anniversary with the release of upgraded limited edition variants of its already legendary lineup. Late last year with the release of the 30.2 anniversary edition Harbeth introduced the silver eucalyptus finish, also available on the 40.2. The 30.2 quickly impressed the masses and along with its unique eye catching finish it became one of the best received monitors of the decade.
In the April issue of Stereophile magazine Herb Reichert had a chance to review the 30.2 Silver Eucalyptus. They quickly became one his favourite speakers, he concluded “Harbeth’s Monitor 30.2 is the most neutral, accurate, tuneful, fun, and music-loving stand-mounted two-way speaker I’ve heard.”
Stereophile magazine also awarded the 30.2 the highest rating among its peers, attaining the 2018 Class A Recommended Component: Best attainable sound for a component of its kind, almost without practical considerations; “the least musical compromise.”
