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!

    What stands?

    Is that a birds eye lens you took that picture with? That's very cool. Your room is amazing. May I ask what your stands are sitting on?

      Wow that's a fantastic pic indeed! Wonder how the SHL-5 sounds with the Lamms...the stands look like Skylan or something similar.

          Awesome setup!

          Hi Ferdie

          Hope you are keeping well!

          Wow! Awesome setup which must sound as good as how it looks! This is my dream, to have my own dedicated music room, acoustically treated and aesthetically beautiful and inviting.

          Keep well!

              Minimal SHL5 system

              I agree that is a very complete hi-end system ...

              This is a minimal setup with SHL5 maybe not the best so far but still good for someone who listen just music at home.
              Cheers

                Harbeths = minimal set-up

                Harbeths are easy to please, minimal set-up is great with them as well.

                With my dedicated room set-up, the capabilities of the harbeths, the lamms and the other gears are maxxed out & one will be aware that these can compete with the best out there.

                  Minimal setup?

                  Hi Micron. I wouldn't call your set up minimal at all. It's actually extremely nice.

                  Mine is much more minimal than yours, but it still sounds great. I guess that's what makes music so wonderful. All of us get to enjoy it. Is that a glass of white wine I see on the table? Hmmm, good idea.

                    Harbeth = tonal purity and musicality

                    Yes Harbeths really require very little fuss as far as setup is concerned.

                    Armed with any decent amp & source & they are good to go & can easily compete with virtually anything out there as far as tonal purity & musicality goes.

                      Hi Don Jr
                      The setup is minimal because use minimum devices ,but still use a dedicated electric circuit for Naim amp with dac inside (without power conditioner) and acoustic treatments on walls turns on the interior design side... All comands runs from ipad ( I mean lights, heat and sound). The speaker cables goes thru special tubes under the floor and all electronics have a special place in wall with corian shelves. So all you can see is a pair of old style beautifull new speakes. And yes, a glass of wine is always welcome.
                      Cheers
