HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

Since its inception ten years ago, the Harbeth User Group's ambition has been to create a lasting knowledge archive. Knowledge is based on facts and observations. Knowledge is timeless. Knowledge is human independent and replicatable. However, we live in new world where thanks to social media, 'facts' have become flexible and personal. HUG operates in that real world.

HUG has two approaches to contributor's Posts. If you have, like us, a scientific mind and are curious about how the ear works, how it can lead us to make the right - and wrong - decisions, and about the technical ins and outs of audio equipment, how it's designed and what choices the designer makes, then the factual area of HUG is for you. The objective methods of comparing audio equipment under controlled conditions has been thoroughly examined here on HUG and elsewhere and can be easily understood and tried with negligible technical knowledge.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings sub-forum is you. 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.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters regarding what appears here. That said, very few Posts are rejected. HUG Moderation individually spell and layout checks Posts for clarity but due to the workload, Posts in the Subjective Soundings area, from Oct. 2016 will not be. We regret that but we are unable to accept Posts that present what we consider to be free advertising for products that Harbeth does not make.

That's it! Enjoy!

  • Sam of Tropical Audio

    There are very few dealers who really care for their customers once a deal is closed, at least here in Malaysia. However, Sam the owner of Tropical Audio whom I know less than 5 week is definitely one exception.

    It has been a month since I bought SHL5 from Tropical Audio. He dropped by yesterday and spend about 3 hours trying to bring the best out of my Harbeth even though I didn't contact him after the sale was concluded except for a call or two from him asking me how's the Harbeth doing. Even though both of us have different opinion as to how room should be treated or how the sound from speakers project to the listening environment but Sam genuinely love the products he sells and passionate about how the customers feel about their product.


    Well done Harbeth for choosing a good dealer and Sam, (if you reading this) keep up the good job.

    Regards,

    Yes, Sam does care about his customers. I think he understands the importance of satisfied customers - especially for speakers like Harbeth that sells via words of mouth.

    Please do drop me a note if Sam were to drop by your place again. I would like very much to join in to learn a thing or two.

      Sure, he called me last week but I was bit busy. Not sure if he's free on Sunday. Anyway, you are welcome if he can't make it.
