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!

  • 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.
