Thanks, Serge.

Yes, they are rarely posted for sale used; as you say, I think their owners simply do not sell them.

I'll very likely end up buying a pair new. I'm fine with that.

I like having two sets of speakers at home so that I can swap each pair out from time to time, rather than buying a new pair of loudspeakers. Since I bought my Harbeths though, I haven't had the desire to switch them out of my system in favor of my Maggies.

Serge - thanks for the exceptionally well written post about your Harbeths. I share your thoughts about this brand.

Early in my quest to build a system, I dismissed Harbeths all too soon and embarked on the audio Merry-go-round. It wasn't until I heard the 40.2 models in my audio room, that I fully understood why these speakers are loved by so many.


While I sometimes give thought to upgrading my system, the notion of replacing my Harbeths has never entered my mind.

Thanks Greg. You’ve had some serious “speakerage” grace your room yourself and sounds like the flagship Harbeth 40.2 has lived up to your expectations. Enjoy!
