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!

    A journey from 'music lover to audiophile to audiofool ...'

    I have been a Musician till 1991 that is when I got married :-) After that I have been listening to more music and playing less. I have moved from Music lover to Audiophile then to Audiofool and now come a full circle to Music Lover where I crave the sound of real music. I currently own the [deleted] Speakers and while they are very good, I am looking out for a more organic sound.

    When I came to know that Harbeth has come to [my country] my somewhat dead passion woke up again. While not impressed with my first audition of the Harbeths in 2004, the second audition at the same place with the same music just kinda surprised me. Since then I have been wanting to own a Harbeth.

    I need this membership so that I can make the correct informed choice about which Harbeth I need to buy since auditions are a rarity here. Finally, after investing in exotic cables, amps etc. I am looking forward to just buying a speaker that will kill the need for upgradation and just make music.
