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!

  • LFD vs Hegel H70

    Could someone familiar with the LFD integrated describe how they feel it compares to the Hegel H70 ?

    evs71: I doubt if there are any HUG members who have heard of Hegel, much less had the opportunity to listen to it against the LFD. You will probably get more response here if your query related only to LFD amplifiers. If your dealer stocks both its best to listen to both and let your ears decide.

    Good luck!

      I can confirm that the latest LFD Mk.IV is very good indeed and works very well with Harbeth but I'm not familiar with Hegel.

      By the way Denjo, where is the 'tiny red dot' ?

        Tiny red dot

        Hi hifi_dave

        The tiny red dot is Singapore! We are about the size of Greater London, just one small red dot on the world map!

        Best Regards
