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!

  • Harbeth Newsletter: No.6, April 2008

    The sixth issue of the regular Harbeth newsletter has show reports from Canada and Heathrow - two international events where the M40.1 went down very well. There is also information on a new on-line Warranty registration, accessible via the new-look Harbeth website.

    The lead story is entitled 'Take it out, plug it in, and it works...' and describes how Harbeth loudspeakers work straight out of the box. Logged-in registered users may view the PDF document.

    Happy reading.

    Thank you. I enjoyed reading the newsletter as usual. I have 2 questions:

    1. I've already registered online but never received any emails regarding the warranty options. Is this normal?

    2. The link in the small green box on the back page should be "", right?

      Yes i've also enjoyed reading the latest Harbeth Newsletter. No surprise that the Heathrow show was a huge success with the M40.1 hailed as the best sound in the show. From the pic, i could see that the M40.1 was driven by LFD electronics & as i recently heard & found out, the pairing of LFD & Harbeth is simply magical & wonderfully musical. Quite the best i've heard from any hifi setup irregardless of price. Can't imagine how good the LFD monoblocks sounded with the M40.1 showcased at the heathrow show.
