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!"

    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.
