hegel h390 integrated amplifier

The Hegel H390 integrated amplifier provides a massive a 250wpc (into 8ohms, 420wpc into 4ohms) an output that can drive many high end loudspeakers with consummate ease.

An ethernet connection provides streaming via Roon and third party apps such as mConnect allowing network streaming of any locally stored music collections as well as music streaming apps such as TIDAL and QOBUZ.

AirPlay2 streaming,
Control4 compatible,
hegel at the little audio company,

AirPlay2 allows wireless streaming from Apple phones and tablets, and Spotify Connect Premium streaming gives you access to a vast amount of music old and new.

The H390 DAC is able to decode MQA from any MQA source via any of its digital inputs, giving hi-res playback from TIDAL Masters or MQA downloads.

With a source such as an Innuos media server, the Hegel H390 can act as a Roon endpoint, bringing your network stored and streaming music together in one single control app, along with a wealth of artist and gig information.

Control4 and IP control permits the H390 to be controlled via your network.

The Hegel H390 provides two analogue inputs as well as both fixed and variable analogue outputs, the latter ideal for adding a subwoofer or two. A pair of balanced XLR inputs cater for higher quality sources.


The digital section provides a USB, three optical, one coaxial, and one BNC inputs for connecting external digital sources such as a CD player, or media streamers from the likes of Roku or Apple TV, as well as Sky boxes or Bluray players.

These digital inputs decode up to DSD64, with the BNC digital input decoding up to DSD256.

DualAmp technology separates out the current gain stage and voltage gain stages that are usually combined in amplifiers, allowing specific circuitry to do a better job, reducing distortion and preserving dynamic range.

DualPower technology supplies the output stage with a different power feed to that of the input and voltage gain stages. Like DualAmp, this gives lower distortion whilst maintaining high dynamic range.

SoundEngine 2 technology preserves the original between stages, where distortion or errors tend to creep in, giving the advantages of Class A and Class AB amplifiers without the negatives, reducing high frequency distortion.

SynchroDAC technology uses true balanced signal processing to preserve dynamic range and lower distortion, lowering jitter and conversion errors, allowing the most faithful digital to analogue conversion possible.

All of the above technology has been developed by Hegel Music Systems to allow their products to stand out from a crowded market place, and win numerous awards worldwide.
