HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

At its inception ten years ago, the Harbeth User Group's ambition was to create a lasting knowledge archive. Knowledge is based on facts and observations. Knowledge is timeless, independent of the observer and can be replicated. However, we live in new world in which objective facts have become flexible, personal and debatable. HUG operates in that real world, and that has now been reflected in the structure of HUG.

HUG has two approaches to contributor's Posts. If you, like us, have 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 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 can be readily understood by non-experts and tried-out at home without deep technical knowledge.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings area 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. From Oct. 2016, Posts in the Subjective Soundings area will not be spell checked or adjusted for layout clarity. 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.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters and Harbeth does not necessarily agree with the contents of any member contributions and has no control over external content.

That's it! Enjoy!

  • My new Harbeth P3ESR's

    Hi everyone, first post on this excellent forum, I have recently bought a pair of Harbeth P3ESR’s they are finished in Cheery, and are sited upon a pair of custom made stands made by myself. The rest of my modest system consists of a Luxman L550A mk11 integrated, Astintrew AT 3500 plus CDP with upgraded EAT Diamond Cool valve, interconnects Artisan silver, speaker cables Van Damme these will soon be changed for Tellurium Q Black. I have attached some pictures, please take a look.

      Great system!

      Great system - When I demoed my P3's last year, it was hooked up to the Luxman integrated - great combo.
      Have fun!

        Grain match with stands

        Hello, Julian.

        BRAVO on your stands, you should go into business! The grain is a perfect match to the speakers, nice mechanism for concealing the speaker cables.

        Enjoy your new musical instruments!

          Welcome to HUG!

          That looks a very smart system and room there. Make sure you keep the speaker grilles on for listening though - they are an important part of the voicing.
