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.22, March 2010

    There's a truly international flavour to the latest newsletter as we round-up forthcoming shows across the globe where you can see Harbeth speakers and meet our friendly distributors.

    We look back in on decades of loudspeaker development pioneered by the BBC as the broadcaster closes the curtain on its specialist R&D centre where Harbeth's founder, Dudley Harwood, and his team worked to produce the first monitor with a special plastic, rather than paper, cone. And, we get to rummage in the BBC's engineering archives - finding two gems of historical significance in the progress of loudspeaker design.

    There's news too of Harbeth's new face in France, another international award for the SHL5, and how one of Harbeth's distributors is poised to open what promises to be the largest hi-fi centre in Europe.

    Happy reading and, please share our news with your friends.
