High-end amplifiers capable of driving every speaker.


Hegel H20

The Hegel H20 incorporates the latest version of the Hegel FET-technology. A practical benefit of the H20 FET-technology is a more rhythmic sound. It is simply better at re-creating a bass line. Another vital element is the removal of harmonic echoes in the higher frequencies, which result in a lot more detail and still a smoother and more natural sound. The core design of the H20 is based on the H30 reference amplifier, with the best possible implementation of our patented and laser trimmed SoundEngine modules. Also designed in the timeless Hegel look, it will fit in any modern or classic home. Just one single button on the front and a solid bead blasted and anodized front panel. A truly rigid design with well over 1,5 kg of aluminium in the front panel alone.

New too the H20 is bead blasted and anodized top and side covers. This adds to the exclusive look, and the overall design is more consistent. The Hegel H20 is a remarkable power amplifier with power capabilities of more than 130 Ampere. Extremely low distortion levels. Amongst the highest damping factor in the industry, and full control of the loudspeakers. All this to give you the most natural, rhytmic and dynamic sound on the market today.

Is the Hegel H20 available in different colours?
The Hegel H20 is available in the standard "Pearl silver" and black colour. The finish is made by blasting the solid Aluminium panels with tiny glass particles and anodizing the surface.
Can the Hegel H20 be used with other Pre Amplifiers than Hegel?
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 H20 and a P30, as this combination has got a very high performance in this price range.
Is the Hegel H20 true balanced?
The balanced inputs of the H20 are, as all the other Hegel units, using true electronically balanced inputs.
Is the patented SoundEngine amplifier technology used in the Hegel H20?
The H20 is using the new and improved version of the patented Hegel SoundEngine technology. The SoundEngine modules are laser trimmed to an extremely low distortion. The power amplifier part of the H20 is based upon technology from the Hegel H30 reference power amplifier.
What is the power consumption of the Hegel H20?
Because of the SoundEngine technology used in the H20, there is no need to run a high bias current in the output stage of the amplifier. The H20 will as all the other Hegel amplifiers use a minimum of power in standby mode when it is not playing music. The H20 will use about 60W of power in idle mode, the same as a normal light bulb.
