HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

INTRODUCTION- PLEASE READ FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THIS FORUM!

"This Harbeth User Group (HUG) is the Manufacturer's own managed forum dedicated to natural sound, realisable by controlling the confounding variables between tthe microphone and the listeners' ears.

For example, the design of and interaction between the hifi amplifier and its speaker load can and potentially will alter the sound balance of what you hear. To reproduce the sounds captured by the recording microphones, as Harbeth speakers are designed to do, you would naturally select system components (sources, electronics, cables and so on) that do not color the sound before it reaches the speakers.

Identifying components for their system neutrality should, logically, start with the interpretation and analysis of their technical, objective performance, as any and every deviation from a measurably flat frequency response at any point along the serial chain from microphone to ear is very likely to cause the total system to have an audible sonic personality. That includes the contribution of the listening room itself.

HUG specialises in making complex technical matters simple to understand, aiding the identification of audio components likely to maintain a faithful relationship between the recorded sound and the sound you hear. With our heritage of natural sound, HUG cannot be really be expected to guide in the selection, approval, endorsement or even discussion of equipment that is intend to introduce a significantly personalised sound to the audio signal chain. For that you should do your own research and above all, make the effort to visit an Authorised Dealer and listen to your music at your loudness on your loudspeakers through the various electronics offered there. There is no on-line substitute for that time investment in a dealer's showroom.

If you desire to intentionally tune your system sound to your personal taste, please consider carefully how much you should rely upon the subjective opinions of strangers. Their hearing acuity and taste will be different to yours, as will be their motives and budget, their listening distance, listening loudness and listening room treatment, not necessarily leading to appropriate equipment selection and listening satisfaction for you.

Alternatively, if faithfully reproducing the sound intended by the composer, score, conductor and musicians over your speakers is your audio dream, then understanding something of the issues likely to fulfill that objective is what this forum has been helping with since 2006. Welcome!"

      Nice amps - a Leben AND a Luxman. . . the perks of living in Japan. Had to import a Luxman L-550 A II back home as we don't have a local Luxman distributor. Lux class A sound really suits the Compact 7.

        Nice stand. I have seen this wooden stand in Japan when I was visiting my in-law, as well as seeing these stand in Japanese HiFi magazine. I would like to know as well if this wood stand is compare to aluminum / metal stand, or compact wood of Skylan.

        {Moderator's comment: the stand is made by Harbeth Japan in Japan and is not available for export outside Japan.}

          Why not make stands?

          hi there

          I always wish those stands... seems to look very japanese...
          The problem with Harbeth speakers are the stands.
          I read a lot about stands design and tried a few with diferent results and my conclution is that: Harbeth must design stands for their speakers!
          So why just for Japan?

            Woden stands for C7ES2/C7ES3

            I don't really know how they compare to other stands but I did have a pair of wooden stands that were not open frame when I had the c7es2. I put the c7es2s on the open ones and they sounded noticeably better in my opinion - more spacious sounding with better bass detail. Then I put the c7es3s on and it was even better!

            The stands are very light but strong. It's a pity they aren't available in the UK. I'm sure lots of Harbeth owners would like the look.

            I'm hoping to get a turntable soon and start building a vinyl collection. Looking at a Yamaha GT2000.

                Luxman 550 A2 + C7ES3

                I own the luxman 550 A2 with C7es3, amazing synergy so musical that you can expend hrs listening alone. Love the combo.

                Hegel dac hd11 great match.
