HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

At its inception ten years ago, the Harbeth User Group's ambition was to create a lasting knowledge archive. Knowledge is based on facts and observations. Knowledge is timeless, independent of the observer and can be replicated. However, we live in new world in which objective facts have become flexible, personal and debatable. HUG operates in that real world, and that has now been reflected in the structure of HUG.

HUG has two approaches to contributor's Posts. If you, like us, have 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 Science of Audio sub-forum area of HUG is your place. The objective methods of comparing audio equipment under controlled conditions has been thoroughly examined here on HUG and elsewhere and can be readily understood by non-experts and tried-out at home without deep technical knowledge.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings area 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. From Oct. 2016, Posts in the Subjective Soundings area will not be spell checked or adjusted for layout clarity. 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.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters and Harbeth does not necessarily agree with the contents of any member contributions and has no control over external content.

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.
