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!

    They would be hard to better!
    I agree, a very neat job, and a good example of function driving form to very good results. If I was to make an improvement, it would be to add a thin MDF frame all around, extending to a very small height above the top piece, to allow the speakers to drop into it. So that they stay in place and do not slide off the stands. Given their weight, I doubt if that will be necessary of course.

      Takis, could we have some more constructional detail? Is there a stud ( a threaded rod) running inside the length of each tube or did you weld a cross bar inside the ends of each tube with a tapped hole in it?

      For Harbeth: Do we have here a simple flat pack stand that could be shipped world wide? I guess with appropriate sizing this design would suit all models except the P3ESR.

        Good morning,

        Between the speakers and the stands are in every corner, small self adhesive hemisphere silicon pads (2mm high, attached to the stand, not the speaker), so that the speaker has not any contact with the surface of the stand. Those silicon pads also keep firmly in place the speaker, it doesn’t slip at all! You can find them in any super market.

          Hi Lubarum,
          Yes, I did exactly as you say. In the evening or tomorrow, I will upload some more photos to help.
