HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

Since its inception ten years ago, the Harbeth User Group's ambition has been to create a lasting knowledge archive. Knowledge is based on facts and observations. Knowledge is timeless. Knowledge is human independent and replicatable. However, we live in new world where thanks to social media, 'facts' have become flexible and personal. HUG operates in that real world.

HUG has two approaches to contributor's Posts. If you have, like us, 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 area of HUG is for you. The objective methods of comparing audio equipment under controlled conditions has been thoroughly examined here on HUG and elsewhere and can be easily understood and tried with negligible technical knowledge.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings sub-forum 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.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters regarding what appears here. That said, very few Posts are rejected. HUG Moderation individually spell and layout checks Posts for clarity but due to the workload, Posts in the Subjective Soundings area, from Oct. 2016 will not be. 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.

That's it! Enjoy!

  • Hong Kong retail outlets for Harbeth

    We have heard from Garner Company, our importer in Hong Kong (and covering China too) that Harbeth's retail store in Hong Kong, supplied by Garner Co. has sadly fallen into administration due to cash flow problems. In fact, this situation has been creeping-up for some months and Garner was monitoring the situation closely. With the former dealer's full cooperation and agreement, new customers were being supplied by Garner directly to be sure that customer's payments were fully protected.

    Garner Company are intent upon recruiting another retail outlet in Hong Kong are now reorgaising their office/warehouse to provide a demonstration facility for local customers seriously interested in Harbeth to drop-in and hear them. Sugden amplifiers (a trusted combination with Harbeth) are also on demonstration. Please feel free to make contact with Peter or Henry Chan of Garner Company who would be pleased to look after you. Harbeth will remain available in Hong Kong and your payment directly to Garner is totally protected.
