Amplifier

The Hegel H190 provides 150 watts per channel amplification, an output that is powerful enough to drive most of the hifi loudspeakers currently on the market. This amplifier is the step up from Hegel H120 and has a damping factor of over 4000. Like the Hegel H120, it includes SoundEngine2, an enhanced version of Hegel’s feed-forward amplifier topology that provides increased dynamic range with reduced high frequency distortion.  In order to make space for a bigger transformer than the one used in the H120, the H190’s casing is taller and deeper: 16.93 W x 7.72 H x 16.15 D.

The H190 also features configurable inputs, a high-end DAC, network streaming capabilities and a substantial 6.3mm front-facing headphone output, making it easy to plug and unplug depending on your listening preferences.

Streaming

Hegel H190 has Apple Airplay 2 and UPnP streaming, with services like Spotify Connect, IP Control and Control4. The network connection of the H190 allows UPnP music streaming of anything up to hi-res 24/192 FLAC and WAV files.

With a source such as an Innuos media server, the Hegel H190 can also act as a Roon endpoint, bringing your locally stored music collections as well as music streaming apps such as Tidal or Qobuz.

Add an Auralic Aries G1 to connect over Wi-Fi and add other internet streaming services like Tidal and Qobuz, Internet Radio, and USB drives to bring high performance streaming to your home audio system

DAC

The H190 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).
