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!

  • Tweeter question about new P3ESR SE


    Just a quick question, I received a new pair of P3ESR today, and I noticed that there's a clear circular sticker on the inside of the tweeter protection 'cage'.

    Is this normal? Does it need removing? It looks like it could mask the sound a little. I own some M30, and they don't have this.

    Thanks in advance

    {Moderator's comment: DO NOT TOUCH IT. It is part of the design.}

    OK, thanks.

    But... if it's just a sticker, will it fall to the bottom at some point?

    {Moderators comment: fitted to all P3s/M20s made since 1990 (and other Harbeths too), twenty two years ago. Why are you so anxious about what is a standard feature? Look here. Full comprehensive thread here.}

      No worries, thanks for the insight. Just didn't know it was supposed to be there, and it looked like it might drop off!

      Anyway, I'm sure it will be fine.
