HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

The Harbeth User Group is the primary channel for public communication with Harbeth's HQ. If you have a 'scientific mind' and are curious about how the ear works, how it can lead us to make the right - and wrong - audio equipment 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 should be accessible to non-experts and able to be tried-out at home without deep technical knowledge. From a design perspective, today's award winning Harbeths could not have been designed any other way.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings area is you. If you are quite set in your subjectivity, then HUG is likely to be a bit too fact based for you, as many of the contributors have maximised their pleasure in home music reproduction by allowing their head to rule their heart. 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 only, although HUG is really not the best place to have these sort of purely subjective airings.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters and Harbeth does not necessarily agree with the contents of any member contributions, especially in the Subjective Soundings area, and has no control over external content.

That's it! Enjoy!

  • Harbeth Newsletter: No.73 March 2016

    The April issue of Harbeth's regular newsletter has news of the brand's clean sweep at The Absolute Sound's Editors' Choice Awards 2016 in which EVERY model was awarded. More awards news comes from Stereophile where two Harbeth models are shortlisted by the internationally-respected magazine. The front cover is dominated by a lovely photograph of a Harbeth 5.1 system at the BBC's Elstree Studios, north of London.

    We've show news from Prague, Stuttgart, Melbourne, the upcoming High End in Munich which sees Harbeth welcoming arguably the world's greatest Garrard aficionado, and a dealer event in Berlin.

    Martina in England

    I recently met Martina Schoner in England. She was staying with a friend who works in the turntable world ( Garrard ) and he brought her along to a English Country Pub. I couldn't persuade her to try Real Ale, though.

    She has a very wide knowledge of the audio world and we spent an interesting
    evening with her. The Landlord was intrigued, as he had never met what he jokingly called a 'female audio anorak.' Little does he know...
