The Audiophiliac, Steve Guttenberg, recently reviewed the M30.2 40th anniversary model. This, the second release in our 40th anniversary year, is described as a speaker that "looks, feels and sounds like a beautiful piece of design."
"Where some high-end speakers can come across as sterile and overemphasize detail and resolution, that's not the case here. The M30.2s sound like a portal back to the session. It's a sound you'll want to savor."
"There was something really special going on here. The Harbeth Monitor 30.2 40th Anniversary Edition is a music lover's speaker."Read the review
USA-based Harbeth pro-user, Aurelia Soundworks, have been awarded 'Best Sound Design Experience' in the Vitrual Reality category at this year's Raindance Film Festival, with their video 'Reeps One:Does Not Exist' which was, naturally, mastered on Harbeth speakers.
The video is "a spatial audio virtual reality experience featuring an original track performed by beatbox phenomenon Reeps One. Working in 360 from the ground up, the track was composed to fully utilise the 360 sonic and visual space, creating a totally new style of music video."
Aurelia specialise in 3D sound mixing for virtual reality, gaming and live installations, with all of their sound design and composing work done using Harbeths. Director and sound designer, John Hendicott, said "Although the end user experience for virtual reality is headphones, all of our sound design and composing work is still being done on trusty Harbeths. As such, I've now shipped my M20.1s and M30.1s out here to
To hear spatial audio, you will need to listen in a Chrome web browser and use headphones. Then you can rotate the video around in 360 and hear the audio move with it.
The future of audio - mastered with confidence on Harbeths.
