HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

INTRODUCTION- PLEASE READ FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THIS FORUM!

"This Harbeth User Group (HUG) is the Manufacturer's own managed forum dedicated to natural sound, realisable by controlling the confounding variables between tthe microphone and the listeners' ears.

For example, the design of and interaction between the hifi amplifier and its speaker load can and potentially will alter the sound balance of what you hear. To reproduce the sounds captured by the recording microphones, as Harbeth speakers are designed to do, you would naturally select system components (sources, electronics, cables and so on) that do not color the sound before it reaches the speakers.

Identifying components for their system neutrality should, logically, start with the interpretation and analysis of their technical, objective performance, as any and every deviation from a measurably flat frequency response at any point along the serial chain from microphone to ear is very likely to cause the total system to have an audible sonic personality. That includes the contribution of the listening room itself.

HUG specialises in making complex technical matters simple to understand, aiding the identification of audio components likely to maintain a faithful relationship between the recorded sound and the sound you hear. With our heritage of natural sound, HUG cannot be really be expected to guide in the selection, approval, endorsement or even discussion of equipment that is intend to introduce a significantly personalised sound to the audio signal chain. For that you should do your own research and above all, make the effort to visit an Authorised Dealer and listen to your music at your loudness on your loudspeakers through the various electronics offered there. There is no on-line substitute for that time investment in a dealer's showroom.

If you desire to intentionally tune your system sound to your personal taste, please consider carefully how much you should rely upon the subjective opinions of strangers. Their hearing acuity and taste will be different to yours, as will be their motives and budget, their listening distance, listening loudness and listening room treatment, not necessarily leading to appropriate equipment selection and listening satisfaction for you.

Alternatively, if faithfully reproducing the sound intended by the composer, score, conductor and musicians over your speakers is your audio dream, then understanding something of the issues likely to fulfill that objective is what this forum has been helping with since 2006. Welcome!"

  • Liedtke Stands versus Skylan Stands

    Hi all,

    Iīve just tested two different stands for my M30s.
    The first one was the Model SH II of "Liedtke Metall Design" in Germany (www.liedtke-metalldesign.de). This stand is a real beauty! My wife was easily convinced to try this stands. They sounded open and airy. The finish was superb. You can fill the tubes with sand. For my ears this improved the sound, because the sound became more quiet, if you know what I mean.

    The second were the well known stands of skylan. My wife didnīt like the optic, but we liked the even more "quiet" sound of them. The difference was not so big. For someone whoīs looking after a more lively sound the Liedtke Stand may be the better choice.

          Hi,

          here you can see a nextel Monitor 30 with another Liedke stand.
          This one reminds me of the studio heritage of the speaker. In my eyes a nice design.

              They look very much like the Solid Steel stands from Italy.

              Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I wouldn't put my lovely speakers on spikes. It was a fashion back in the 80's but it damages the speakers and if they get nudged, it causes severe damage.

                You are right, beautifull in the eye of the beholder.
                But the placement of the speakers you can choose the options spikes or saved topplate.


                I think the topplate isnīt apparent at the picture and would īnd place the speakers on spikes directly too becouse of the damage.

                  Phew, thank goodness for that.

                  Putting speakers on spikes puts my teeth on edge like laying your naked LP's or CD's on the floor !!!

                    Hi Lizzy,

                    to be true, the foto you found shows you a view of my living room where I am sitting now. My digital foto equipment is very poor. I found it difficult to make a good shot with the lens I have.

                    The geometry of this tripods is more difficult to get on a shot than the more symetric stands of other producers.

                    The good thing with this stands is that you can order the any height you need according to your listening position. The stands are handmade and it is a pleasure to deal with Mr Liedtke. The finish is suberb.

                    Hallo David,

                    Of course you are right with that beaty thing. My cat Mrs Sappho loves to play on the bottom triangle under the speakers. Maybe this is the only reason why she didnīt found the way up yet.

                    W.B.
