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 12, January 2009

    The first 2009 issue of our regular newsletter has in-depth coverage of Harbeth at CES in Las Vegas and scoop news of the upcoming P3ESR mini monitor, featuring Radial-2 technology.

    Also in this issue, details of Harbeth regaining top spot in Japan, and the ravings of a highly influential American reviewer from The Absolute Sound who is highly impressed by the Monitor 40.1.

    And, don't miss news of ever more videos being uploaded showing Harbeth's designer Alan Shaw at work creating new products. The fly-on-the-wall style clips are most revealing.

    As ever, if there is something you would like to see featured in a future edition, do let us know.

      REG Monitor 40.1 review in TAS

      I think as the review has only just been published that you should try and obtain it from The Absolute Sound magazine (or website) directly at this time.
