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!

  • How to find cd's recommended by forum members

    I'm not sure if I wrote this before, but I just added another "Recommended Album" to this forum. Maybe go over there to see what I've put down so far...and add something of your own? OK "possums"? That's what the endearing Dame Edna of BBC fame calls people, "possums"! Maybe check her out on netflix and/or wikipedia?

    As for "where to find the list of recommended albums" here it is: 1) AFTER THE MAIN HOME HARBETH WEB PAGE comes into view, 2) GO TO "USER GROUP", 3) ...... the BLACK LINKS are on the LEFT SIDE of the web page.....4) CLICK ON ONE OF THE SUBTOPICS in the user group TO BRING UP THE BLACK LINKS THAT WILL NOW APPEAR NEAR THE TOP OF THE WEB PAGE..... ------- 5) IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BLACK LINKS ON THE TOP OF THE PAGE......CLICK ON "COMMUNITY", ------6) THEN ON THE DROP DOWN MENU THAT WILL APPEAR AFTER CLICKING ON "CO,MMUNITY" .......CLICK ON "ALBUMS".....AND voila!, all my lovely recommended albums will appear like magic! :o) You can then see what I've put there....plus you can add your own to share YOUR VAST KNOWLEDGE with all the rest of us who may be less enlightened than yourself! :o) Have fun with it....I did......it's a marvelous feature of this website!
    Cheers, John Boland boland7214 at aol PS: Maybe after you find the "Albums" webpage let me know that you found it? Thanks. PPS: AS I JUST NOTICED, IF YOU ARE READING THIS ON "THE USER GROUP" JUST GRAVITATE TO THE TOP OF THIS...OF THIS...PAGE..AND YOU'LL SEE "COMMUNITY". CLICK ON "COMMUNITY" AND THEN "ALBUMS".

    NOTE TO MODERATOR AND ANYONE ELSE: I JUST FOUND OUT THAT NON-MEMBERS CANNOT GO TO "COMMUNITY". THUS THEY CANNOT SEE MY LOVELY LIST OF "RECOMMENDED CD'S". THIS IS NOT GOOD! HARBETH COULD MAKE MANY MANY FRIENDS IF THEY FIXED THIS SITUATION SO THAT ALL MUSIC LOVERS COMING TO THE "USER GROUP" WEBSITE, EVEN IF NOT SIGNED IN AS A MEMBER, IF ALL OF 'EM COULD GET TO "RECOMMENDED CD'S". CAN YOU PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM APPRECIATED...THANKS...JOHN BOLAND Also.....if you send me your email address I can send you my photos from my hard drive of all 16 or so CD covers...boland7214 at aol dot com
