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 can't wait to see the new speaker! I'm not sure what I'm looking forward to most - the new Alien prequel or the new Harbeth speaker. Very exciting!

          All excited ...

          The suspense is killing me. Maybe we could have a contest to guess what this new speaker might be and where it would fall within the product line.

            Gaps?

            the biggest gap is between the Shl5 and the Monitor40.1
            My guess is something priced between the both.

            {Moderator's comment: No, this is a model update.}

              My guess: Super HL5 is becoming a 6 and going single-wire.

                Stands @ Munich

                Munich Show 2012.

                I am guessing that all Harbeth models will be on display.
                Wondering if visitors would like a free giveaway speaker stand?

                      Hints in Germany?

                      here in Germany i found some hints on a 30.1 in dealer advertisings.

                      best,

                        M30 update?

                        I feel that Monitor 30 has been updated. Probably M30.1? Or perhaps an M20.1?

                          M20.1

                          Surely, the M20.1 is the P3ESR ?

                            An upgrade!

                            i actually thought that it was a brand new speaker, and not just a upgrade for a existing speaker.

                              Monitor 30.1?

                              It's the Monitor 30.1. I'm quite excited to hear it.
