The Hegel H120 provides 75 watts per channel amplification and uses the Hegel SoundEngine2 amplifier platform which allows a damping factor higher than 2000 yet keeps extremely low distortion levels. It works a little like a noise cancelling headphone by comparing the output of the amplifier with the input. When distortion is detected, this is played forward into the speaker output, but in reverse phase.

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

The H120 also features a high-end DAC, network streaming capabilities and a headphone output, making it easy to plug and unplug depending on your listening preferences. All inputs can be configured for volume bypass so that you can integrate with your home theatre or your wireless sound system making it the perfect affordable upgrade.


Hegel H120 has Apple Airplay 2 and UPnP streaming, with services like Spotify Connect, IP Control and Control4. The network connection of the H120 allows UPnP music streaming of anything up to hi-res 24/192 FLAC and WAV files.

The H120 provides network streaming, using any number of third party apps such as mConnect, allowing network streaming of any locally stored music collections using an Android or IOS phone or tablet. Alternatively, adding a separate streamer or a media server to stream directly via USB will also add music streaming services such as Tidal and Qobuz, as well as internet radio to the system.


The H120 internalises a DAC with 1x 24bit/96kHz USB, 1x 24bit/192kHz coaxial and 3x 24bit/192kHz optical (for TVs and streamers without a USB output).

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 analog conversion possible.
