    40.2 Anniversary.

    After months of waiting for a pair in walnut, they've finally arrived. I'm loving them straight out of the box. I wonder how long to fully break in??

    Wow! Congratulations! I'd love to hear the 40.2 now. I'm very curious.

    I was a bit worried about the synergy with my T+A gear. No reviews or opinions from anyone. It seems to be great.

    I have no doubt that the T+A synergy is awesome. Despite some using lower powered amps, Harbeth does benefit from some extra power and control. So happy for you.

    Thanks Joe! I think the 30 watts in Class A is helpful..Far less fatiguing than some previous speakers I've owned. The neighbors will be thrilled!!

    Congrats!

    Alan Shaw is on record that they need minimal to no break-in time. I'd say that fits pretty well with my experience with my 30.2s
