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!

    Welcome!

    Hello Thanos,

      Congrats Alan,
      it'll take a little time before I get used to the new system but it looks as if it'll be worthwhile, especially as it's under your control.
      Can we post attachments and if so, are there any size limits or rules you would like us to follow?

      regards to all Harbeth users

        Hello Paul,

        Always good to have experienced BBC sound engineers here! I know this new group looks a bit daunting, but we've turned off many unwanted features and left just the the useful bits.

        Yes, please do "post". We've made one of two tests but there is no reason why not to let rip! You might find that the ability to view an entire thread is especially useful.

        My colleague Ivan in Antwerp, Belgium - the mastermind behind both the web site and the HUG - has many years experience with the database engine underneath this group. I am therefore confident in its durability.

            I'll do my best to keep up, but fundamentally it's *your* forum.

                  Hello to Alan and to all:

                  I have missed my fix of Harbeth and general audio chit-chat.

                  I'm glad we're back together.

                  Could it be that it's time for a group HUG?

                  Regards,

                  John

                  PS: It's great to have the edit feature.

                    Congratulations!

                    Looks great, Alan! Now if I can just figure out why I'm not getting instant e-mails of all the new posts . . . . Maybe I will now that I've posted once.

                      How to turn on email notification

                      Tom,

                      I think that you will find that feature under your ** User CP ** (= User's Control Panel).

                            How could I change the user name?

                            Good new forum, but had some difficulties to register, I would change my user name here, but do not know how.
