HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

INTRODUCTION- PLEASE READ FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THIS FORUM!

"This Harbeth User Group (HUG) is the Manufacturer's own managed forum dedicated to natural sound, realisable by controlling the confounding variables between tthe microphone and the listeners' ears.

For example, the design of and interaction between the hifi amplifier and its speaker load can and potentially will alter the sound balance of what you hear. To reproduce the sounds captured by the recording microphones, as Harbeth speakers are designed to do, you would naturally select system components (sources, electronics, cables and so on) that do not color the sound before it reaches the speakers.

Identifying components for their system neutrality should, logically, start with the interpretation and analysis of their technical, objective performance, as any and every deviation from a measurably flat frequency response at any point along the serial chain from microphone to ear is very likely to cause the total system to have an audible sonic personality. That includes the contribution of the listening room itself.

HUG specialises in making complex technical matters simple to understand, aiding the identification of audio components likely to maintain a faithful relationship between the recorded sound and the sound you hear. With our heritage of natural sound, HUG cannot be really be expected to guide in the selection, approval, endorsement or even discussion of equipment that is intend to introduce a significantly personalised sound to the audio signal chain. For that you should do your own research and above all, make the effort to visit an Authorised Dealer and listen to your music at your loudness on your loudspeakers through the various electronics offered there. There is no on-line substitute for that time investment in a dealer's showroom.

If you desire to intentionally tune your system sound to your personal taste, please consider carefully how much you should rely upon the subjective opinions of strangers. Their hearing acuity and taste will be different to yours, as will be their motives and budget, their listening distance, listening loudness and listening room treatment, not necessarily leading to appropriate equipment selection and listening satisfaction for you.

Alternatively, if faithfully reproducing the sound intended by the composer, score, conductor and musicians over your speakers is your audio dream, then understanding something of the issues likely to fulfill that objective is what this forum has been helping with since 2006. Welcome!"

  • Next shipment to U.S.

    When I put a downpayment on a pair of P3ESR's a few months ago I was told there was a shipment scheduled for sometime in September.

    Is there any news (dates) on when this might be happening?

    Thanks for any info.

    OK, although this is not really the place to discuss deliveries to named customers, I thought I'd call the office to ask them for an update.

    There is a substantial delivery leaving Harbeth UK next week (starts production Tuesday next week) including rosewood and cherry. I'm glad that you put down a holding deposit as experience in other markets has shown that the actual sales quantity outsells the incoming stock in just a few days. We cannot recall the sales of a Harbeth speaker taking-off quite so fast. The right sound, in the right cabinet at the right price.

        Got mine today!!!! They are BEAUTIFUL. The rosewood is perfect and the sound is amazing.

        I appreciate the excellent packing and the Q.C. stickers from Harbeth so after the long wait I got a perfect pair of speakers.

        The sound these produce is just incredible.

        Thanks!

          They look amazing! I have just placed an order for C7ES-3s (Rosewood) in the USA. I believe Harbeth are trying to get an extra pair out for the June delivery. I really really hope it happens as I cannot wait to get a hold of my speakers.

            I'm waiting a pr. of speakers to come in on the June shipment too. Hope harbeth is able to get you your pr. of 7s in so your wait will be over soon.
            Congrats on the new speakers!

              I don't normally get directly involved in individual orders but I understand that there are indeed C7ES3 rosewood due to be made for Harbeth USA next month. I have no idea who they are ultimately destined for; that's something you'd have to discuss with Fidelis.

                Alan,
                Can you estimate around what time in June the shipment will go out?
                Thanks
