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!"

          Starting the Harbeth family!

          So you are starting an Harbeth family? Nice set up, I appreciate the low cost and "do-the-job" style Ikea stands and DIY panels. I guess that the carpet on the floor plays a great role in the quality of your room's sound.

          Have a good trip on the audio road,

                  Audio nirvana

                  Yes I like the sound and design from this two model so classic elegant, Room acoustic, placement speaker and component is very important to achieve optimal sound although Harbeth is quite user friendly but when you treat them properly they will bring you to audio nirvana

                    M40.1 LF output ...

                    hi,

                    i also use M40.1 and agree that you do NOT need a subwoofer. i measured them in my room at 31 Hz with only -2 dB! i have to add that i use a digital room correction system.

                    best,

                      Digital room correction is important to adjust frequency response between your speaker and room acoustics

                        Digital room correction is important to adjust frequency response between your speaker and room acoustics
                        Absolutely! especially when you have - 15dB (!) at 80Hz as in my room due to roof pitch made of plaster boards. there is absolutely no passive means that could help me. the lyngdorf "room perfect" is a bless for me.
