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!

  • Home demo please in Vienna (Austria)? Thank you!


    I'm just new, my first post here.
    I live in Vienna (Austria) and I'd like to listen in particular the Monitor 30/30.1 or C7ES3 but any Harbeth model would be welcome.
    I'm 40, audiophile since I was 14. I'm an IT professional, fair person, family man.

    Does anybody can offer me one hour of listening in Vienna? It seems that there's no distributor at the moment in Vienna.
    I would bring drinks.

    I've submitted to Mr Andy Sinden (Harbeth Production Manager) this idea to post on the forum a request for invitation and he approved the idea.
    Thanks in advance to all the "vibrating" souls that might be ready to help me.

      Harbeth in Hungary?

      I know some people from Hungarian avx forum. If you like maybe I can ask him regarding Harbeth M30.1 demo. This is private person not Hi-Fi Shop.

      Unfortunately no Harbeth dealer in Hungary.

        A call to Harbeth users in Vienna

        It is a shame you have not got any positive response(s). Maybe there are not enough Harbeth users in Vienna, or they are not tuned in to HUG to pick up on your request. Maybe your reminder in this thread may help, i hope so.
