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!

    Availability of official Harbeth spares - The Spares Matrix

    There was a bug that prevented this being visible, which has now been fixed.

    So the official position regarding model spares is live again.


    Note that we need to add the P3ESR to the matrix, but since production started twenty three months ago, there has not been one spare part required by an end user, to our knowledge.

      Thanks for that - I will have a crack at doing this sometime.

        Good Evening,

        I have a slight problem with my m30 actives. They just arrived today second hand and one of them has a little hum which would be still ok however the other one seems to lack of power. Is there any way to check by a Harbeth technician? Moreover one of the mid/bass has a slight scratch and i have not been informed about that. The speakers are in bad condition but i hope i can save them.

        I managed to find a local technician in the meantime but I'm wondering if there is any chance to buy a replacement mid driver?
