HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

Since its inception ten years ago, the Harbeth User Group's ambition has been to create a lasting knowledge archive. Knowledge is based on facts and observations. Knowledge is timeless. Knowledge is human independent and replicatable. However, we live in new world where thanks to social media, 'facts' have become flexible and personal. HUG operates in that real world.

HUG has two approaches to contributor's Posts. If you have, like us, a scientific mind and are curious about how the ear works, how it can lead us to make the right - and wrong - decisions, and about the technical ins and outs of audio equipment, how it's designed and what choices the designer makes, then the factual area of HUG is for you. The objective methods of comparing audio equipment under controlled conditions has been thoroughly examined here on HUG and elsewhere and can be easily understood and tried with negligible technical knowledge.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings sub-forum is you. If upon examination we think that Posts are better suited to one sub-forum than than the other, they will be redirected during Moderation, which is applied throughout the site.

Questions and Posts about, for example, 'does amplifier A sounds better than amplifier B' or 'which speaker stands or cables are best' are suitable for the Subjective Soundings area.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters regarding what appears here. That said, very few Posts are rejected. HUG Moderation individually spell and layout checks Posts for clarity but due to the workload, Posts in the Subjective Soundings area, from Oct. 2016 will not be. We regret that but we are unable to accept Posts that present what we consider to be free advertising for products that Harbeth does not make.

That's it! Enjoy!

  • Sonneteer Anyone?

    I searched this forum for anyone using a Sonneteer amp with their Harbeths and found no one. The Sonneteer Alabaster is an absolutely wonderful amp with my P3ERS's. The Alabaster reminds me of all of characteristics of a Sugden that I love with the drive of a Naim amp. Very nice indeed. Am I the only here using a Sonneteer or have I simply not looked in the right place?

    I knew this brand but I never heard of it's sound. I currently using LFD Zero LE III and love it with my Harbaeths. There is a review said the LFD sound as Sudgen + Naim. So I believe your Sonneteer must be very very good as well.

      Thank you for the reply. I very much enjoy the looks of the LFD and would love to hear one someday. I think there are some similarities between our amps.

        it would be interesting to have a direct comparison / review between lfd zero le mk4 and maybe sonneteer orton

          Sonneteer is a very 'underground' product in GB. I don't know of any dealers stocking their products, which might explain the apparently low number of users.
