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!

  • Uneven ceiling height

    I am planning to use my Super HL-5 in the new living room. The living room has one end of the ceiling slightly lower in height. See this illustration.



    Do you think the speaker placement in the illustration would work well? Do you think it would be better positioning the speaker at the other end which is having higher ceiling height? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Why not you try out moving the speakers?
    I've listen to a set-up in a room similar to yours. Imo, it will be OK.

    Pls read this link

      That is very comforting. It's nice knowing I am not doing something silly with placement. Thanks.

        I believe Harbeth's large sound room also has a similarly sloped ceiling.

        I also had something similar in my previous house where I used C7's... no problems. (although I did not listen in my underwear! )

          You should try it, you don't know what you're missing!
