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!

    Speaker stand identified.

    They are SP-1s made in Germany by liedtke metalldesign . Their web site is very comprehensive and equally confusing!

    but they came be purchased from this site... I think! http://www.edles-in-edelstahl.deYou'll find a pic somewhere.

        Other stands?

        A-ha! Thanks guys.. yes very confusing website, and my Chrome translator doesn't seem to like it either. I can gather those stands are between 4-500 euros though - very nice, any one here used them?

        On a much cheaper note, has anyone tried the Atacama SL series?

        Many thanks

          Atacama value

          I've not personally used them but its always seemed to me that the Atacama range is very good value for what you get .

            Atakama for me

            Agreed. I think I'm going to take the plunge and go for the Atacamas for now. Looks like a great, sturdy, simple stand with a top and bottom plate of 300mm width and depth. Excellent value for money.

            If anyone else out there has tried them do let me know.

            Many thanks.

              The three shown in the picture look just right for (high to low) Compact 7's, SHL 5's, and Monitor 40's. Fill them up with kitty litter a la Noel at Skylan and you're in business!

                    Say hello to David from KJ (the guy who believes in Krell + Harbeth), from the architect of Budapest.

                    Soon, I will propose some new stand aproach... stay tuned!

                      Ikea - perfect stands ...

                      Still working hard on new stands (as promised).
                      But until then I found the version "balsa" (bamboo actually is) Nesna from IKEA.
                      There is no cheaper and elegant version for only 7 pounds each.
                      For those who want to try, must know that decoupling between speaker and stand is by 3 points.
