INTRODUCTION - PLEASE READ FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THIS FORUM!

"This Harbeth User Group (HUG) is the Manufacturer's own managed forum dedicated to natural sound from microphone to ear, achievable by recognising and controlling the numerous confounding variables that exist along the audio chain. The Harbeth designer's objective is to make loudspeakers that contribute little of themselves to the music passing through them.

Identifying system components for their sonic neutrality should logically proceed from the interpretation and analysis of their technical, objective performance. Deviations from a flat frequency response at any point along the signal chain from microphone to ear is likely to give an audible sonic personality to the system at your ear; this includes the significant contribution of the listening room itself. To accurately reproduce the recorded sound as Harbeth speakers are designed to do, you would be best advised to select system components (sources, electronics, cables and so on) that do not color the sound before it reaches the speakers.

For example, the design of and interaction between the hifi amplifier and its speaker load can and will alter the sound balance of what you hear. This may or may not be what you wish to achieve, but any deviation from a flat response is a step away from a truly neutral system. HUG has extensively discussed amplifiers and the methods for seeking the most objectively neutral among a plethora of product choices.

HUG specialises in making complex technical matters simple to understand, getting at the repeatable facts in a post-truth environment where objectivity is increasingly ridiculed. With our heritage of natural sound and pragmatic design, HUG is not the best place to discuss non-Harbeth audio components selected, knowingly or not, to introduce a significantly personalised system sound. For that you should do your own research and above all, make the effort to visit an Authorised Dealer and listen to your music at your loudness on your loudspeakers through the various offerings there. There is really no on-line substitute for time invested in a dealer's showroom because 'tuning' your system to taste is such a highly personal matter. Our overall objective here is to empower readers to make the factually best procurement decisions in the interests of lifelike music at home.

Please consider carefully how much you should rely upon and be influenced by the subjective opinions of strangers. Their hearing acuity and taste will be different to yours, as will be their motives and budget, their listening distance, loudness and room treatment, not necessarily leading to appropriate equipment selection and listening satisfaction for you. Always keep in mind that without basic test equipment, subjective opinions will reign unchallenged. With test equipment, universal facts and truths are exposed.

If some of the science behind faithfully reproducing the sound intended by the composer, score, conductor and musicians over Harbeth speakers is your thing, this forum has been helping with that since 2006. If you just want to share your opinions and photos with others then the unrelated Harbeth Speakers Facebook page http://bit.ly/2FEgoAy may be for you. Either way, welcome to the world of Harbeth!"

  • A guide to uploading images to HUG

    Good afternoon HUG

    I understand there has been an ongoing problem with uploading images to posts on HUG. I've put together a step by step guide which I hope will help resolve the problem! Do let me know if you have any further issues or have any questions.

    Have a great day,
    Emma

    AFAIK, the issue has not been with the process of uploading images, rather it has been with resolving why the ability to view those uploaded images seems to vary from user/member to user/member.

      With respect, there are several ways that images can be attached to posts. The way Emma has always attached images seems to result in universal viewability. The proof would be, of course, to put her guide to the test wouldn't it.

        Hi Emma,

        Thank you for preparing the guide to image uploading. After looking concertedly, I am unable to find the button with the camera icon! So, here I am, trying to apply the first step of your instructions, yet I am failing dismally.

        Please note that I am logged in to my HUG account when attempting this and responding to your post.

          Thanks Emma. It's strange that I can no longer see that PDF link after log in. If I click the link before log in, a blank page is returned. I have tried opening it in different ways without success.
          I am using Chrome in Windows 10. It's the same using Firefox.

            There is no camera icon as described in step 1. See attached pdf screen print. hug-photo-screen.pdf

              There is a camera icon on my screen .... and I've uploaded a screen snap using Emma's approved method.

              So maybe we are zooming in on the core issue. Can anyone see a camera icon when they attempt to make a reply posting to this thread?

              Note to self:

              Emma is in group Channel Moderator
              A.S. is in group Administrator
              IMF+TDL and witwald are in group Registered Users

              This hints at a group permissions issue in VB.

                Only the link icon appears. There is no camera icon next to it.
                Perhaps, for test purposes, you and/or Emma could create new usernames for yourselves in the same group as the typical registered users.
                That might permit you to see firsthand what many of us seem to be experiencing.

                  That would be a logical next step, wouldn't it. Perhaps when we have a few more responses.

                      Same for me as well - not able to see any camera icon. Using Windows 10 and Internet Explorer.

                        I also do not see a camera icon.
                        All I have on the far left side of the bar is a' Post link' icon, and on the far right side ' 'Upload attachments' , 'toggle advanced editor' and 'Add smiles' icons.

                          OK we have something to work with now. Thanks. It looks like a membership class issue.
