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!

  • 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 ?
