HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

The Harbeth User Group is the primary channel for public communication with Harbeth's HQ. If you have a 'scientific mind' and are curious about how the ear works, how it can lead us to make the right - and wrong - audio equipment decisions, and about the technical ins and outs of audio equipment, how it's designed and what choices the designer makes, then the factual Science of Audio sub-forum area of HUG is your place. The objective methods of comparing audio equipment under controlled conditions has been thoroughly examined here on HUG and elsewhere and should be accessible to non-experts and able to be tried-out at home without deep technical knowledge. From a design perspective, today's award winning Harbeths could not have been designed any other way.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings area is you. If you are quite set in your subjectivity, then HUG is likely to be a bit too fact based for you, as many of the contributors have maximised their pleasure in home music reproduction by allowing their head to rule their heart. 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 only, although HUG is really not the best place to have these sort of purely subjective airings.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters and Harbeth does not necessarily agree with the contents of any member contributions, especially in the Subjective Soundings area, and has no control over external content.

That's it! Enjoy!

  • Compact 7s on the way!

    Well I loved these speakers on audition a couple of times (and against SHL5+ no less) so today finally took the plunge and ordered a pair.

    Very much looking forward to hearing them at home, and seeing them in place - myself and my girlfriend both picked the lovely Eucalyptus veneer.

    Big thanks to the folks at Harbeth for continuing to hold out against fashion and still making non-fatiguing, musical speakers with all the warmth of real instruments and voices. Also big thanks to my dealer for great demos.

    That's kind of it really, just had to share the excitement! Now to call my master joiner friend and ask him to make up some stands...

      James, make sure the stands position the tweeters precisely at ear level when you are listening in your normal chair.
