    Wouldn’t you also expect maybe some crossover changes? I don’t know.

    I’d love to hear a side by side comparison.

    This is what I have been told... the 40.2, SHL5 and 30.2 anniversary already have what is now considered the XD upgrade. All the other speakers that never received upgraded components/modified crossovers and wiring will now receive the same and will be called XD. Is it possible that some other small tweaks were made... sure, lets wait and hear directly from the source when they're ready.

    I’m hearing that all models are getting the XD treatment - all new parts in the crossover, new crossover design, etc. But yes, let’s wait and hear from Harbeth directly. I’ll try to find out more. THAT BEING SAID, just because the XD comes out, doesn’t make the Anniversary suddenly a bad speaker. SOME manufacturers feel they need to keep improving on things, even a little here or a little there.

    A little more info: P3 and C7 will be the first models to get “XD’d”. Expected that the 40 will be the last to get the XD changes.
