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!"

  • Need help on fixing damaged grilles fabric

    I have damaged the fabric at the corners of the grilles of my M30 while trying to remove them (which by the way, I haven't been able to), could I buy the fabric and reupholster then myself? Where can I get the same fabric?

    Does anyone know if I could send them to Harbeth to have it done by themselves? I am afraid that if this is possible it might be expensive. Thank you.

    {Moderator's comment: First you need to talk to your local dealer/importer. They exist to represent Harbeth in your country (what country are you in?). That's the correct way to proceed.}

    I live in Spain, I was just hoping I could buy the fabric and do it myself, since It's not a difficult task and it's just a cosmetic issue. I guess the dealer will be expensive, I'll contact them anyhow. Still couldn't remove the grilles! They are incredibly tight. Thank you.

      Contact Noel!

      Zindra:

      You may want to contact Noel at Skylan stands - I understand he makes a Harbeth grille removal tool.

      Or you could just leave the grilles alone: now that I have read about the effect even slight physical contact can have with the surface of a driver, especially a tweeter, I'd be inclined just to leave them on.

        What effect does physical contact with the driver have? I noticed that the metal dome covering the tweeter is actually touching the grille, but I didn't think that's important, I don't notice anything wrong so far.

        {Moderator's comment: That is perfectly normal.}

          Craving for a look-see

          About ten days ago I ordered this grille remover at Skylan. It was delivered to me today and I must say that it works perfectly!
          Sometimes you just crave to see your speakers with the grills off, I know... Damage is inevitable without a good tool.
