About us

The story begins in 1988. Bent Holter - student at the Technical University in Trondheim (NTNU) decided to do a thesis under the original design of the amplifier transistor that would cure the problems of classical systems. Enemy number one - harmonic distortion. Holter somehow could not accept the fact that when we give a simple signal to the amplifier, you will get that signal plus something else - distortion produced by electronics. Fighting distortion usually meant the deterioration of other parameters, including damping factor. Holter decided to break out the classic schemes and developed a project that became the basis of what we know today as SoundEngine Technology. Today Hegel is one of the best established brands in Hi-Fi market, producing integrated, pre and power amplifiers as well as CD players and some of the most modern and sophisticated D/A converters. The company has dealers in 44 countries and its products are sold all over the world. Awards and press reviews speak for themselves.

Hegel Technology

Organic Sound
Good recordings are best enjoyed naked. The organic sound of Hegel means that all parts of a dynamic recording are reproduced exactly like the original.
All Hegel amplifiers are using a new kind of distributed amplifier technology. DualAmp is used in all integrated and power amplifiers from Hegel.
Our local error cancelling system prevents distortion in the audio amplifier circuit stages, preserving the original details and the dynamic range.
Hegel amplifiers are using completely separate DualPower power supplies for the input and voltage gain stages, and for the current output stages.
The linear phase low pass filter will remove the high frequency noise from the analog signal. LineDriver block is connected after the linear phase filter.
The USB connector found on Hegel amplifiers and digital to analogue converters opens a whole new world for music and movie lovers.
In a CD Player one of the most important parts is the master clock signal. It's controlling the rhythm of the CD-player to make the music sound better.
Hegel CD Players are using a new digital to analog conversion technology called synchronised upsampling. This gives higher resolution and less distortion.

I enjoyed my time with the H100 greatly, and in all it's one of the best audio pieces of kit I've listened to all year.

Hegel introduced an amplifier that integrates an excellent D/A converter, capable of boosting a DVD player, CD player or your computer. Just to make the most of your files and discs. Furthermore, it is a serious electronics, capable of powering most speakers without the slightest problems. And all this for 1600 euros...

It is a slice of genuine high-end hi-fi at a cracking price and I suspect Hegel has been very generous in the internal features integrated into this single understated box. It may be an entry-level product in Hegel's product range, but it is certainly benefitting from trickle-down technologies found on more superior machines further up the range.
