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!

    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.
