Studio Monitors

Harbeth Monitor 20.1 Pro

The smallest professional-use Harbeth is the Monitor 20.1 loudspeaker. The trusted natural Harbeth sound in a form factor ideal for small spaces such as outside broadcast trucks, workstation-offices and editing suites. With an overall balance and bass extension that is designed to fool the listener into thinking the speakers are very much larger, recordings mastered on Monitor 20.1 loudspeakers can be signed-off as production ready.

Harbeth Monitor 30.1 Pro

The Monitor 30.1 loudspeaker is a perfect all-round solution for natural sound in a modest cabinet size and is especially convenient in a wide-range 5-7-11 or Dolby Atmos™ multi-channel sound authoring system.

Harbeth Monitor 30.1 Powered

This new, powered version of the popular Monitor 30.1 studio monitor makes the package even more convenient. Just plug-in an XLR line source, set the gain control and the Powered M30.1 speaker is a ready-to-go monitoring system. This combination is ideal for drama-LE monitoring in fixed and mobile installations.

Harbeth Monitor 40.2 Pro

The three-way Monitor 40.2 loudspeaker is the ultimate solution to 'Grade 1' audio monitoring, enhancing and modernising the sonic performance of the earlier models introduced in the late 1990s, themselves replacements for the obsolete two-way LS5/8.

Recording studios

Natural and accurate sound are not, in fact, essential requirements for a studio monitor. Fashion and taste feature highly in their selection. Harbeth speakers take monitoring to another level. They're uniquely easy to live with, coloration is very low, and the entire audio spectrum is correctly balanced. Instruments and voices sound real. Listening fatigue eliminated - a Harbeth trademark.

It's easy to claim that a speaker is a true monitor. In reality, if a speaker has a sonic personality, as many so-called monitors intentionally do, it is likely that the sound recording will itself be colored. For example, if the monitor loudspeaker speaker lacks detail, the sound engineer may boost the mid and top frequencies in the recording we buy to compensate for his speaker. If the monitor is bass shy, inappropriate bass could be added to the recording. Confidence in the monitors to 'tell it like it is' is vital if a genuinely high-fidelity sound recording is the objective. 

Very few loudspeakers are capable of reproducing human voice convincingly, but that's a core capability of a Harbeth. If a speaker doesn't sound truly convincing on speech - and most loudspeakers don't - then natural and lifelike music reproduction is impossible.

Broadcasting studios

Harbeth loudspeakers well-crafted dispersion and perfectly integrated bass/mid/top balance ensures they're the best choice for speech and music monitoring in even sparsely treated acoustic environments. Up close and personal they make great nearfield monitors too, thanks to the seamless blending of the drive units. Another Harbeth speciality.

Trusted in live recordings and post-production where balance mistakes are frustrating and can be costly, Harbeth monitors are designed to replay the authentic live sound from the microphones to the sound engineer as-is. Artistic decisions can then be made based on the music, not the characteristics of the speakers.
