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!

  • From C7ES2 to 3 and speaker position

    I recently upgraded from 2 to 3 after thoroughly enjoyed the 2 for several years. They're both excellent with the improvement with 3 quite noticeable esp in the bass.

    I wonder if there're owners here that gone through the same and if you have to reposition the speakers? Right now I just let it stay in the same position as the Skylan stands quite heavy but I wonder if I should go through the exercise again. The C7ES3 does sound a bit different so I wonder if I'll get even better results if I move them wider apart, to the front or back etc. Right now it's about 1.7m apart from each other and similar distance from me. It's not close to the back (more than 1m).

    Thank you !

    It certainly doesn't hurt to try. Just carefully mark the current location so you can return there if a better location isn't found.
