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!

  • New Skylan stands

    Noel at Skylan has some new 2 post stands for the P3ESR. I think they look great.

    {Moderator's comment. Resolved. You made the link using the picture (image) icon. You should have used the URL icon (globe). We will change it for you here - click that for your pictue link. The reason it was viewed at all was because users manually copied/pasted to their browser.}

        Is this a production model, or are they built to order? I don't think this model is listed on the website. If it is, it isn't listed as being made specifically for the P3ESR. If you don't mind me asking, how much does this particular model cost? I've been saving to buy speaker stands of decent quality and these appear to fit the bill.

          It is a production model built for the P3ESR. He doesn't have it listed yet on the website. I spoke with him earlier today and the finalized height will be 27" and priced at $305 plus shipping.
