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!

    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.

        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?
