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!

  • 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.
