HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

INTRODUCTION- PLEASE READ FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THIS FORUM!

"This Harbeth User Group (HUG) is the Manufacturer's own managed forum dedicated to natural sound, realisable by controlling the confounding variables between tthe microphone and the listeners' ears.

For example, the design of and interaction between the hifi amplifier and its speaker load can and potentially will alter the sound balance of what you hear. To reproduce the sounds captured by the recording microphones, as Harbeth speakers are designed to do, you would naturally select system components (sources, electronics, cables and so on) that do not color the sound before it reaches the speakers.

Identifying components for their system neutrality should, logically, start with the interpretation and analysis of their technical, objective performance, as any and every deviation from a measurably flat frequency response at any point along the serial chain from microphone to ear is very likely to cause the total system to have an audible sonic personality. That includes the contribution of the listening room itself.

HUG specialises in making complex technical matters simple to understand, aiding the identification of audio components likely to maintain a faithful relationship between the recorded sound and the sound you hear. With our heritage of natural sound, HUG cannot be really be expected to guide in the selection, approval, endorsement or even discussion of equipment that is intend to introduce a significantly personalised sound to the audio signal chain. 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 electronics offered there. There is no on-line substitute for that time investment in a dealer's showroom.

If you desire to intentionally tune your system sound to your personal taste, please consider carefully how much you should rely upon 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, listening loudness and listening room treatment, not necessarily leading to appropriate equipment selection and listening satisfaction for you.

Alternatively, if faithfully reproducing the sound intended by the composer, score, conductor and musicians over your speakers is your audio dream, then understanding something of the issues likely to fulfill that objective is what this forum has been helping with since 2006. Welcome!"

  • Exposure 2010S Integrated Amp

    I've searched the Harbeth forums for mention of the Exposure 2010S integrated amp and I'm surprised to find no one has discussed it yet. I'm listening to C7ES-3s with the 2010S right now, and I am very happy with the combination ( I listen mostly to classical and jazz, some classic rock ). If you haven't listened to these together prepare to be pleasantly surprised! This integrated amp has tremendous value for the money.

    If you have heard this integrated amp with Harbeth speakers, please share your impressions. I'm interested in what other people, who may have broader experience with amps than I do, may think of the combination.

    It's good to hear that someone else is using Exposure amps with Harbeths too . Actually I have demoed C7's with my Exposure 23/28 amps at home and I think that combination of Exposure and Harbeth is excellent and I wonder why so few Harbeth users are using these great amps with their speakers. Both are great value and work really well together. I listen mostly to metal, prog rock, blues and jazz and everything sounds great with these speakers.

            I am interested in the newer Exposure 2010S2 integrated amp. evs71 - I also have C7ES-3s and interested how satisfied you are with your Exposure or if you have sold it instead of another product?

            Does another forum member have experiences with Exposure??
