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!"

      Dirrerent amp?

      It could be your amp.Try a different amp. I had a similar problem long time ago with a different brand speakers. I am told something like dirty pots in the amp causing the distortion.

        Crackling?

        Does it crack while sitting back and listening, or when you're adjusting the volume?

          Pc?

          Do you think you heard the cracking sound from rondom music album or specific album. Also to you listen from pc? some output level can cracking (overload) the input specially obvious in high frequency.

            Is it coming from both speakers or only one?

              Which driver?

              - was only playing at volume 9 - 10 O'clock

              - need to get a spare amplifier to verify

              - dirty pots in the amp ? maybe leave this to the last as I dont want to touch the internal

              - it crack while sitting back and listening

              - the cracking sound from rondom music album or specific album.

              i tried one particular track, and it alway has this cracking sound. i have heard it while on other album but ignore it

              - Also to you listen from pc? No only CDP

              - coming from only one side of the SHL5

              maybe need to swap channel

              but i can zoom in to which driver is giving that problem? 20mmtweeter or 25mmsuper-tweeter?

                Swap L&R channels

                - Reverse channels. If the crack moves to the other speaker, it is in the recording.

                - Check the same fragment on different volume levels. If it stays, it is in the recording.
