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!

  • 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

          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 ?
