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!"

      Problem opening Harbeth News Letter December 2011 (No.26)

      Pleased to see there's a new newsletter, but there seems to be a problem when I try to open the file. The message on my screen says - "There was an error opening this document. File is damaged and could not be repaired."

      Is that a problem at Harbeth's end or mine?

            Thanks, I've got it working now. My PC was just being temperamental.

                Opened with zero difficulty on my MacBook - perhaps you have some other issue?

                  Same here when I try to open it on my PC (XP os).

                  It was not able to open it on my ipad unlike other PDF files I have opened before.

                    35th Anniversary?

                    I read the following in the Newsletter:

                    "The beautifully refurbished facility is up and running and he is already busy working on developments for Harbeth’s 35th anniversary year in 2012."

                    I wonder what that might be...

                      Corrup file?

                      I seem to be downloading a corrupt file too. 3.33MB is the latest filesize, while a 2.76MB file was downloaded previously, even though it's supposed to be 4.1MB.
