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!

          Export from NZ

          Yes Phil, I will be offering a Monitor 40.1 speaker stand. I am not sure about if Harbeth owners will want to pay the freight from NZ, this could make the speaker stands to expensive?

          I am also looking into brass spikes and a brass bottom plate for a future upgrade option for clients, I think Maple and brass would be a wonderful combination in a speaker stand.
          Thanks Jason.

              Hi Jason, are all the stands the same price regardless of size/model? Thanks.

                NZ made stands

                Hi Sorry for the late reply. All stands are the same price.

                We have added 4 brass footers per stand now with M8 threaded studs for leveling, Price per pair is $1290 NZD now with the 8 brass footers fitted to the stands.
                I have found that by using the hard rock Maple timber for my speaker stands I do not need to use any decoupling pads between the speakers and the stands, the bass is very natural sounding with the Harbeth speaker placed directly on top of the stand.

                My Parmenter speaker stands use 3 different materials, Maple for the open frame stand, powder coated steel bottom plate for extra mass and stability, and solid brass footers for level adjustment and for tone tuning of the steel bottom plate.
                All 3 elements combine together to make a speaker stand that allows the Harbeth speakers to perform to their full potential.
