Hegel is a relatively young company but they are already known for making superb audio, and not following the normal path.
Having developed and patented several technologies utilised in their products, Hegel is one of the best reviewed brands in the industry. Producing integrated, pre, and power amplifiers, as well as DACs and CD players the company caters for most requirements.
The integrated amplifiers all feature built in digital boards and DACs, and are Upnp renderers, just add a pair of loudspeakers, connect to your home network and you’re good to go. Special custom implementations of Airplay and Spotify bring convenience without sacrificing quality.
The combination of high damping factor, low distortion, low bias, create an amplifier capable of getting the best out of pretty much any loudspeaker. All in a deceptively simple Scandinavian design that will look good in almost any domestic environment.
I love how they perform, how they look, and how simple it is to get the best out of them.
