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!

  • P3ESR in urgent need

    I cannot seem to be able to obtain Harbeth P3ESR off the self as it were I need them as quickly as possible.

    I emailed Harbeth a short while ago asking if I can buy direct from the factory (probably not),hope they get back to me tomorrow. Does anyone on the forum now a dealer with a boxed pair.

    {Moderator's comment: I'm really sorry. We have a very long order book and are obliged to build per that order book.}

    Thank you. What is the waiting time if ordered tomorrow do you think.

    {Moderator's comment: If you are an overseas export distributor and run out for regular deliveries from Harbeth UK, sometime mid 2015, Harbeth's normal leadtime. Where are you?}

      I see that you are in the UK. We slip into production UK orders as soon as we can after receiving them, because unlike our 44 export wholesale markets, UK dealers will not/cannot carry inventory. Please discuss with your dealer your order and get a solid commitment from the factory about production dates.

      As you will have seen from the newsletter, this last quarter has been our best ever so we are very busy, but will, as always, try our very best.
