HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

The Harbeth User Group is the primary channel for public communication with Harbeth's HQ. If you have a 'scientific mind' and are curious about how the ear works, how it can lead us to make the right - and wrong - audio equipment 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 should be accessible to non-experts and able to be tried-out at home without deep technical knowledge. From a design perspective, today's award winning Harbeths could not have been designed any other way.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings area is you. If you are quite set in your subjectivity, then HUG is likely to be a bit too fact based for you, as many of the contributors have maximised their pleasure in home music reproduction by allowing their head to rule their heart. 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 only, although HUG is really not the best place to have these sort of purely subjective airings.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters and Harbeth does not necessarily agree with the contents of any member contributions, especially in the Subjective Soundings area, and has no control over external content.

That's it! Enjoy!

  • My thanks to Harbeth

    I haven't even received my new SHL5's yet, but I felt it appropriate to post a thank you to Harbeth who couldn't have been more helpful when I called yesterday for a chat to sort out a few queries before placing my order. It was (Production Manager) Andy I spoke to. Despite being undoubtedly busy, time was still taken to describe the finishes available and to give advice on which might suit my requirements plus some advice on a speaker/room match.

    As someone who also runs a (small) audio related business, I was impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of Harbeth, and you have made another convert. Its so refreshing to find that these important aspects of customer service are alive and kicking and in my experience seem especially healthy within the UK based audio industry. I have also been very impressed with the down to earth and honest common sense approach that Alan Shaw brings to loudspeaker design. It's a breath of fresh air to find a loudspeaker manufacturer that isn't 90% marketing and 10% substance!

    I very much look forward to my pairing of Croft amplification and Harbeth loudspeakers.
