HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

At its inception ten years ago, the Harbeth User Group's ambition was to create a lasting knowledge archive. Knowledge is based on facts and observations. Knowledge is timeless, independent of the observer and can be replicated. However, we live in new world in which objective facts have become flexible, personal and debatable. HUG operates in that real world, and that has now been reflected in the structure of HUG.

HUG has two approaches to contributor's Posts. If you, like us, have 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 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 can be readily understood by non-experts and tried-out at home without deep technical knowledge.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings area 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. From Oct. 2016, Posts in the Subjective Soundings area will not be spell checked or adjusted for layout clarity. 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.

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

That's it! Enjoy!

  • New updated 2011 Harbeth User Guide!

    Alan has completely re-written the User Guide that is supplied with Harbeth speakers. You can download the new guide below.

    Please note that we have a small stock of the original guides to use up first (throwing them away would be a needless waste of paper) and we will be dropping this new version into the cartons in about 4-6 weeks.

    Once again, this is only our opinions about achieving good sound: what really matters is your opinions based on your own experience. You will note that we have expanded the section on room damping. Enjoy!

    Best user guide?

    This is one of the best user guides for speakers I have ever read. Very to the point, but also very complete.

    I must mention however, that the link on the products page to this new user guide is dead:

      HUG User Guide

      I have done some technical writing aimed at end users in my time. Many compliments to Harbeth on the 2011 guide - it is refreshingly clear, concise and free of technobabble.

      {Moderrator's comment: Alan wrote it himself. He'll be pleased! It took him weeks of nibbling.}

        Download problem?

        Does anyone have a clue as to why, when I try to download the guide from either of the links above or from the link on the home page, I get a completely blank document? The download comes through, but when it opens, there is nothing there but a blank, white window. I'm on a Mac if that makes any difference. Thanks very much.

          Anyone? PDF download still isn't working for me. If anyone might be willing to e-mail me a PDF, I'd be most appreciative. Thank you!

                It's the music that matters - thanks!

                The HUG is amazing. Also the HUG has so much of information and common sense and no snake oil (Thank God!). I am re-learning more about audio. End of the day its Music that matters most!
