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!

    Interconnects to solve room acoustics???

    Tried the wider one as an interconnect between Sugden Masterclass CD and Integrated amp with copper wbt 102 next gen plugs found they initialy sounded good but in end seemed to smooth out mid and high notes were rather wiry.

    At the moment am using 0.75 orange two core flymo type wire for my SHL5s with 6m runs. Have used QED silver anniversary and Vandamme 6mm shotgun LC UPOFC and 2.5 three core from B&Q with earth and neutral wired together.

    Have quite a lively listening room so am having trouble with natural sounding mids. The sound quality is in order I've listed them with Orange 0.75 best. Next will try Vandamme 1.50 Black Series Speaker cable as it is more conductor UPOFC but only 30 strands, as I suspect the SHL5 can count and prefers small numbers !!
