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!

  • 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.
