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!

  • Vacancy - Marketing Assistant

    Just thought I'd mention this.

    We have an immediate vacancy for a suitably qualified and experienced Brand and Marketing Executive. The post is to expand our use of social media, newsletter production and to become involved with ideas we have for closing the communication gap between Harbeth HQ and our customers in the trade and at home. This is in preparation for the Harbeth company's 40th Anniversary next year, which unlike previous anniversaries that slipped by because we were so busy, we intend to properly celebrate.

    It's probably a 3-4 day a week position, based at HQ in rural Lindfield, West Sussex: flexible hours as long as the job gets done. An appreciation of music and a curiosity about sound reproduction are a must! A formal job and personal specification are being created, and will be available next week. We're looking for evidence based relevant experience in related work or part-time work. This vacancy may suit an undergraduate seeking an internship placement, with prospects.

    The successful applicant will report directly to me.
