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!

  • The Riddle, The Answer

    I was wondering something... It's like a riddle, so:

    Is there in Audio Industry a maker, any maker, who makes good things for almost 40 years, being absolutely credible within an international circle, that he always has spares in stock, who has materials and lifetime provisions for them, who has continuous contact with his worldwide customers and dealers to satisfy needs and to prevent any problems. Who builds always and permanently on a high quality standard and at an absolutely reasonable price. And is easily accessed and friendly corresponded by everyone, so to answer, to solve, to cover, to enlighten...

    And should I call him a devoted Professional and a Gentleman, or a very nice and friendly person, or both?

    Hard times we're running through... Sales and Marketing are becoming the new world religion. Human virtues are becoming more and more rare, and it gets very hot to preserve values against losing them into the troubled seas of profit making.

    Everyone knows the answer for this person. It's time to realize the value of holding all the above values alive and rock solid. And support the man accordingly, as being a very fine Keeper! And for the years to come...

    Thank You Mr. Alan Shaw!
