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 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.
