Harbeths are easy to drive. The designer Alan Shaw recommends low distortion amps from 25-150w for the M30, C7s and SHL5+. The larger M40s can take a lot more power 500w+

I use a Bryston 3B3 with my SHL5+ which provides more headroom than I'll ever need

I have Harbeth 30.2 with Accuphase e650. The 30 watt with Harbeth more than enough!
Before this I had nuvista 600 with focal Sopra 2 more watts with higher efficiency speakers I could not reach same spl level as with Harbeth. Don’t know why, can’t be bothered neither. But the 30 watt class a is more than enough for my ears! Very happy music lover again!

Agreed regarding your statement the 40s. More power certainly helped in my case.
