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 8, August 2008

    The August issue of our regular newsletter has a global flavour - there's news from Hong Kong of how the M40.1 has a wonderful write-up from staff and reviewers of a respected audio magazine, details of our new distributor in Peru and how an entire shipment of M40.1 flagship speakers to the USA sold out inside a week.

    News from Britain includes a warning to professional audio engineers about an audio health hazard, how Harbeth speakers have been chosen by a British school, and Alan spills the beans on his secret RADIAL formula.

    Also there is a link to Part 1 of our home-spun video series where I've interviewed Alan at work to illuminate some of the many issues he has to balance in designing a speaker like the Monitor 40.1. In this introductory clip he shows us around the outside of his R&D retreat, deep in the heart of the English countryside. In the next edition, I'll be interviewing him.

    You can find the link to part one of our little video in Designer Notebook Chapter 7 here.

    Happy reading.

    Hi Alan, wow this countryside looks very peaceful, quiet & serene. Ideal for designing loudspeakers.
