MONITOR 30.1 DOMESTIC
A refinement of the mid-sized BBC speaker (LS5/9), the multi award-winning M30.1 offers a smooth, controlled and well-rounded sound which excels on acoustic music.
Featuring the Harbeth RADIAL2™ bass/mid unit from the reference M40.1, the new-generation M30.1 space-saving professional monitor disappears into the listening room. The M30.1's outstanding midrange clarity and well-controlled bass brings music to life in a wide range of listening environments including front/centre/rear-channels in professional surround sound systems.
It is the first choice for many professional audio engineers including Britain's National Film and Television school and the British Library's National Sound Archive.
