The Harbeth User Group: The shortest journey to the most realistic sound

Please read - 2021: we don't talk amplifiers. If you consider yourself to be a citizen scientist willing to apply objectivity and reason to enhancing your audio system (for example, accepting that level matched A-B comparisons are the only really trustworthy ones), then this forum is for you! Please DO NOT post your subjective opinions about home hifi electronics because truly high fidelity electronics are easily, repeatedly, cheaply and quickly revealed under controlled conditions and by definition do not add any sonic personality at all to the signal. They need not be fancy or expensive. Please refer to the 'A', 'X' and 'Z' lists in the main section 'Which amplifier...?' for factual user experiences such as power output, features, reliability and after-care.

“The real purpose of the scientific method is to make sure nature hasn’t misled you into thinking you know something you actually don’t know.”

"An experiment is never a failure solely because it fails to achieve predicted results. An experiment is a failure only when it also fails adequately to test the hypothesis in question, when the data it produces don't prove anything one way or another.”

― Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values
