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.15, May 2009

    This issue of our regular newsletter is devoted entirely to the new P3ESR mini monitor. Alan Shaw spills the beans on the design process, and we find out why it takes four years to create a legend in miniature.

    There's also news of the reintroduction of rosewood veneer as plans are unveiled for the launch of this new speaker plus details of the importance to designing in stereo for stereo.

    The PCB-design video (now three videos) mentioned in this Newsletter is also available directly in the Tech Talk section on the Harbeth website here.

    Happy reading.

      Harbeth Newsletter: No.15 - video resolution increased

      Sorry: our webmaster is here today (on holiday with his family) and he has reprogramed our system to handle larger videos than we initially intended to use. We felt that this subject needed a bigger screen area and now this opens up the possibility of really using the greater video size.

      Everything seems to be working now. Thanks for your patience! Hope you enjoy!
