The Hegel H90 is a 60wpc amplifier whose output belies it's conservative rating. Along with its high damping factor, the H90 takes a firm grip on any loudspeaker you care to accompany it with - ideal for speakers like KEF's LS50

An ethernet connection is provided for network streaming, using any number of third party apps like mConnect, allowing network streaming of any locally stored music collections. Alternatively, media servers such as Innuos stream directly via USB, which will also add music streaming services like Spotify and TIDAL to the system.

AirPlay compatibility

The network connection of the H90 allows UPnP and DNLA music streaming of anything up to hi-res 24/192 FLAC and WAV files using one of many third party apps such as mConnect. Direct streaming from Apple devices is possible with AirPlay.

The Hegel H90 provides two analogue inputs and a pre-amplifier output for adding a power amplifier.

As well as the ethernet connection for network streaming, a digital USB input is provided, as well as three optical and one coaxial digital 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.

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 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.
