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!"

  • P3ESR alongwith REL Q150e MK II

    I recently purcahsed a Q150e MK II, think I have integrated it fine with my P3 ESRs using Leben CS 300x as my amp.
    I would like to knwo from other more experienced users whether you had some best practices tips to assist a seemless integration.

    Please note my setup is a medium-small L-shaped room.

    Adjusting main/sub balance

    My technique for adjusting a REL B-3 to my C7ES3 is to bring the REL's volume down to the point where I'm not aware of the REL until I shut it off. Of course I use the speakon connection.

      Sub control settings

      Thanks.

      I angled the sub as per RELs instructions , noticed crossover is not very linear. eg- If you want to crossover at 75hz you will have to set it to 55hz may be less.

        XTX room analyser

        I managed to get good integration using an XTX room analyser. It plays a sweep and listens via a USB microphone for in room response, it will average over 3 positions. I found that I could position the sub and manage it's settings to even out the in room response.

        Heartily recommended at a little over 100 GB pounds

          Anything cheaper?

          I will check it, but 100 pounds seems a little steep for me considering the integration sounds very nice currently.

          Are there any cheaper analysers out there ?
