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!

  • Rocky Mountain Audio Festival 2007 (USA)

    I see that Harbeth and/or Harbeth USA will not be participating in the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest?

    If this is true, what a shame. This is one of the very best true hifi shows left in the US and one that features real buyers and sellers instead of being a media or shmoozing event for the sourround sound crowd.

    I promise you, at RMAF the typical attendee will NOT walk into the room, sneak silently around in back of the speakers and then, as he departs, say to you: "that's a pretty nice sounding amplifier"!

    Plane tickets to Denver are cheap, now.

    Harbeth will be there!

    Hot news!

    Harbeth will be at the show - you can find us at the Sound Science room and at Acoustic Sounds!

    And we look forward to meeting you and opening your ears to the clean, sweet Harbeth sounds!
    {General comment about Harbeth's attendance at shows: The Harbeth organisation is small, tight and lean. We can not be everywhere at once, no matter how much we would like, and there are really good shows all over the world every month. The way for us to minimise the cost of your new Harbeths is to take very great care of the overheads.}

      Re: Rocky Mountain Audio Festival (USA)

      Where were you last year?

      We (Acoustic Sounds) represented Harbeth with 2 separate soundrooms; one with M30's and the other with C7's. There is actually a pix of the M30's in use at that 2005 show on the Harbeth website.

      In 2005, there was no local Denver area Harbeth dealer. Currently there is, so we'll let them do their job along with Walter the Magnificent's assistance.

      We'll have another soundroom there, as well as a software booth.

      Please stop by to say hello.

        The new board is ignoring my email when people post. What do I need to adjust?

        That's great news.

          Hi Clark,

          I was working. I am glad to see you'll have the Compact 7s. I am looking forward to seeing you exhibition. Come December-January, I will make my final upgrade choice.
