Harbeth Speakers - Monitor 30.1 Speakers

 (Cherry Finish - Pair)

Harbeth Speakers



Product No.:


 The Monitor 30.1, featuring the patented Harbeth RADIAL cone, takes resolution a step further. The larger cabinet allows for greater power handling, and the RADIAL cone provides the most natural mid band of any monitor. Used and trusted by sound engineers who are editing on very long shifts, the Monitor 30.1 is completely free from the coloration and makes musicians and artists appear in front of you.

"I'm very pleased to say that today, 26 July 2005, we were awarded ISO9001 certification. This proves that although we are a small craft business, we have the control and monitoring system in place to ensure that the speakers that leave our door are to the highest standard. Providing that we maintain our QC, the certification lasts for 10 years with an annual audit, and a monthly fee. Is it possible that we are the only UK specialist speaker company to be awarded ISO status?" - Alan Shaw, Harbeth

"The Harbeth speakers are amazing! They are very neutral, yet very articulate. They have quite punchy low end for their size. Drums and percussion are reproduced with stunning weight and clarity. After using them as primary speakers to monitor a direct-to-disc recording, I can recommend them without hestiation!"

I have three systems living room, work and listening room all with Luxman front ends so I move speakers a lot and each other speaker has been moved between systems The Monitor 30.1 will not leave the listening room. Work area ended up with Compact 7 es3 Living room Super 5 35th anniversary so want to try to put this speaker in perspective to the other two The C7es3 is warmer and not as fast the SuperHL5 highs are more rounded with more bottom end The Monitor 30.1 Sounds as big as the HL5 in the 9x13 listening room with better delineation of detail and less warm then the C7 The other speaker are beautiful and fantastic but to me this is better still Other speakers that have been in this system lately ATC SCM19v2, Kef LS50 and Wharfedale Jade 3 are getting sold They are all great speakers BUT Harbeth speaks to my mind and heart

As good as advertised

The 30.1's replaced a pair of Spendor SP100a's I've owned for close to 20 years. I kept the Spendors, I wanted something a little smaller. The reviewers love the 30.1's and I do, too. The 30.1's have the best mid-range I've heard, and a good sound stage almost without regard to placement (I was curious so I moved them around a dozen times in the last week). That said, if these disappeared overnight and my Spendor SP100a's were there instead, I would still be happy. Both are great speakers, just a little different in emphasis. Harbeths are more accurate, and slightly more musical. Spendors are smoother, maybe more forgiving of errors in the source material. Never heard an acoustic guitar sound better than on the 30.1's. The build quality / wood work is awesome. Worth the $$$ and 1/3 the cost of the current SP100's.
