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!

  • advice about analogue source

    I need advice to substitue my analogue source (Rega P3-Rega RB300-Nagaoka MP200) with another that match better with other components of my system: Leben CS600; Harbeth C7ES3. There is also: NVA Phono 2/PSU Head Amplifier; digital source: EAR Acute Gold; cables: NVA SSP interconnect; Acoustic Revive; Audience Conductor E.
    At this moment, I'm thinking of the following options, but I accept kind advice about another source:
    Linn Sondek LP12-Akito-Adikt-Lingo
    Roksan Xerxes 20 Plus-Tabriz ZI-Corus Silver
    Sota Sapphire-Origin Live Encounter MK3c-Clearaudio Aurum Beta S
    Rega P9-Rega RB1000-Rega Exact.

    Many thanks.

        Depending on budget, the Ace Space Deck or the Hyperspace. The 9 inch arm is very good indeed but if you can possibly afford a 12 inch Ace Space Arm, the benefits are well worth the outlay.

            Brinkmann Bardo

            I heard in the past a superb match between Leben's amplifier and phono stage and Brinkmann's Bardo turntable. You can take a look that way:

              It surely must have been a good match with the cartridge mounted. There is imo no intrinsic better or worse match with certain turntable equipment brands, just a better or worse electrical and/or sonic match between cartridge and phono pre-amp.
