Hegel H30
 

With a power rating of more than 1,1 kW in 8 ohms it is on the verge of being easier to measure the H30 in horsepower. The massive H30 mono power amplifiers from Hegel play any loudspeaker in the world with ease and authority. The H30 is our best power amplifier ever, and is definitely a combatant for being the best power amplifier in the world. The H30 is developed as a mono block, but there is also the possibility to use it as a stereo power amplifier to start with if you are on a budget. Progress is a one way street and so for our power amplifiers. The H30 is using a new and improved version of the patented Hegel SoundEngine amplifier technology. This further reduce all types of distortion. In addition to the improve SoundEngine we are also using the highest possible level of the Hegel FET-technology in the input stage and the voltage gain stage. This technology reduce a very specific type of distortion called Harmonic Distortion. This particular type of distortion causes what many people call "transistor sound", and this is therefore dramatically reduced in the H30. It will simply let the music reach you in a different way than what you have ever experienced before.

Normally, when you compare a less powerful amplifier with a more powerful amplifier, the most powerful will have a more potent bass, more attack and more "SLAM" than the less powerful one. This is how it works up to a certain point. The Hegel H30 is beyond this point, and all of a sudden the differences become different. The H30 will simply play with a completely undisputed control, regardless of the loudspeakers. The bass is tremendously deep, but not dominating. The level of detail in the high frequencies are unheard of, but never overbearing. Usually a demo of the H30 and P30 combination ends with clapping hands and a whispering wooooow...

So what sets the H30 apart from the H4SE? There are several technical differences. As a mono power amplifier, the H30 has a fully balanced output stage which reduces distortion and cancel out distortion. Further more, the H30 has a much more advanced input stage and voltage gain stage. Both the H4SE and the H30 uses hand matched transistors, but only the H30 uses the special combination of JFET and MOS-FET transistors. This further reduces higher order harmonic distortion in the H30. The third big difference between the two is H30's output transistors. These are of higher quality, with less distortion, than the ones in the H4SE. In addition to this, the use of dual transformers in the H30, reduces mechanical noise. The higher budget also allow the use of better parts throughout the H30.

Is the Hegel H30 available in different colours?
The Hegel H30 is only available in black colour. The finish is made by blasting the solid aluminium front, top and side panels with tiny glass particles and anodizing the surface.
Can the Hegel H30 be used with other Pre Amplifiers than the Hegel P30?
All the different Hegel units has got a neutral sound signature, so that they can be used together with other high quality audio units from different manufacturers. However we recommend you to listen to a combination of a H30 and a P30.
Is the Hegel H30 true balanced?
The balanced inputs of the H30 are as all the other Hegel units using true electronically balanced inputs.
Is the patented SoundEngine amplifier technology used in the Hegel H30?
The H30 is using the new and improved version of the patented Hegel SoundEngine technology. The SoundEngine modules are laser trimmed to an extremely low distortion.
What is the power consumption of the Hegel H30?
Because of the SoundEngine technology used in the H30, there is no need to run a high bias current in the output stage of the amplifier. The H30 will as all the other Hegel amplifiers use a minimum of power in standby mode when it is not playing music. The H30 will use about 100W of power in standby mode. In ECO mode it will use about 30W.
