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!

  • Lost, missing or stolen

    I sincerly hope that we do not have to make many entries here, but as a service to customers worldwide this seems an ideal place to start the hunt for wayward Harbeths that have sprouted legs.

    It goes without saying that stolen speakers carry no Warranty. We will not encourage or support crime and if we can identify a thief we will, and have, report them to the police. In one case that comes to mind, this led the police to a treasure trove of stolen electical equipment. It irritates me and my staff to think that we invest an hour or two of our combined effort into making a pair of speakers for them to fall into the wrong hands.

    MISSING IN TRANSIT #1: Feb. 2007

    HL-P3ES2 in maple s/number: 2716 L&R. Stolen en route to Harbeth Denmark from Harbeth UK. Harbeth Warranty has been cancelled and no after care will be provided for these speakers.
