Stereolife H360 review

"If you need an amplifier "for life" - if you are tired of being half way there, if you need power to drive your speakers without resorting to monoblocks the size of a subwoofer, or you just want to have a 100 percent high end system in one box. The H360 is a must to listen to."

Hi-Fi Choice (UK) H360 review

"Yet, in summary I want to change my sporting analogy. In Hegel combining its extensive know-how around lowering distortion, eradicating noise and preserving phase and transient timing, the H360 is achieving something that is much greater than the sum of the beneficial parts. It’s the effect of watching a truly talented footballer like Messi or Cantona on the ball – time slows down and skill just expresses itself beautifully. Music I know extremely well is refreshed and the artist’s intent becomes clearer. It’s not a matter of extra detail revealed, it’s just effortless, unhampered communication. The sheer cleanliness of the H360’s delivery means I’m better able to understand and enjoy my music"

“The integrated amplifier is coming of age again, and in the H360 Hegel has created a new reference product in its range that looks to be creating a whole new benchmark performance for others to try their best to match” Chris Ward Hi-Fi Choice (UK) - September 2015

H360 amp/DAC

Hegel H360 is a giant among integrated amplifiers. With 250 watts per channel into 8 ohms and a damping factor of more than 4000, it will control virtually any loudspeaker on the market. Thanks to the patented SoundEngine technology, this beast of an amplifier combines power, dynamics, finesse and musicality like no other integrated amp on the market. The connectivity is more of a bonus... There are balanced and unbalanced analog inputs. There is a Home Theatre bypass. There are optical and coaxial digital inputs, as well as a USB input for any signal up to DSD128... And, yes - it is also a streamer. Need we say more?

The core of everything Hegel is sound quality, and the H360 is no exception. The obvious benefit of the H360 is easy to see - power. It can deliver 2 x 250 watts per channel into 8 Ohms, and is stable even in lower impedances. Furthermore, the damping factor of more than 4000 makes certain it can take control over even the most demanding loudspeakers. The H360 will always play with great authority and ease.

Rarely is such power combined with finesse. However, specially designed power supplies driving precision volume attenuators contributes to an extremely low noise floor. Hand matching near perfect transistor pairs in the input stage reduces harmonic distortion. Our patented SoundEngine technology reduces over all distortion, and especially cross-over distortion. Our designers understand how transistors work, down to the atomic level, and have used all this knowledge in designing the H360.

The H360 incorporates a high quality DAC, using Hegel’s proprietary re-clocking. The benefit of this is that we can make everyday sources sound really good. Sources like a phone or a computer. This is why we have also included functionality like Apple AirPlay and DLNA streaming. There is also a reference class USB input, supporting all formats including native DSD64 and DSD128.

Damping factor -

Technically - it is a term describing the difference between the output impedance of the amplifier and the load impedance of the loudspeaker.

Practically - It will determine the stability of the amplifier. It needs to stop the “return kick” of current from the loudspeaker or it will be knocked out of balance.

Eeeuhhmm? - Sonically, a higher damping factor means better bass control. Lower damping factor means fluffy bass.

Standard - The industry average is 60-80. Hegel is 1000-4000. That is what makes Hegel so tight and dynamic.

H160 amp/DAC

The H160 amplifier has one purpose, and one purpose only - to allow you to connect whatever device you want and make it sound as good as it possibly can. First of all, we designed an integrated amplifier with a broader set of connections than any other amplifier on the market, in this category. There is a wide variety of connections, varying from classic balanced and unbalanced analog connections, to Home Theatre integration and onwards to various digital inputs. You can also stream wireless music to it from devices with Apple AirPlay or DLNA. Secondly, we realized that not all the devices you choose to connect are designed to be high-end music performers. This meant we had to develop a range of unique technologies and implementations to make certain that your phone, tablet or CD-player could reach its fullest potential. The H160 incorporates technology that "repairs" some of the damaged caused by a low quality source.

Finally, we integrated the new with the classic, and included our award-winning and worldwide patent holding amplifier technology, the SoundEngine. This amplifier design completely turns ordinary amplifier designs upside down. The result is a purer and smoother sound with low distortion, as well as ultra dynamic bass due to a high damping factor. And yes, you can also use your headphones, and it uses up to 60% less power than an ordinary amplifier. So, what are you standing there thinking about?

Damping factor -

Technically - it is a term describing the difference between the output impedance of the amplifier and the load impedance of the loudspeaker.

Practically - It will determine the stability of the amplifier. It needs to stop the “return kick” of current from the loudspeaker or it will be knocked out of balance.

Eeeuhhmm? - Sonically, a higher damping factor means better bass control. Lower damping factor means fluffy bass.

Standard - The industry average is 60-80. Hegel is 1000-4000. That is what makes Hegel so tight and dynamic.

H160 amp/DAC

The H160 amplifier has one purpose, and one purpose only - to allow you to connect whatever device you want and make it sound as good as it possibly can. First of all, we designed an integrated amplifier with a broader set of connections than any other amplifier on the market, in this category. There is a wide variety of connections, varying from classic balanced and unbalanced analog connections, to Home Theatre integration and onwards to various digital inputs. You can also stream wireless music to it from devices with Apple AirPlay or DLNA. Secondly, we realized that not all the devices you choose to connect are designed to be high-end music performers. This meant we had to develop a range of unique technologies and implementations to make certain that your phone, tablet or CD-player could reach its fullest potential. The H160 incorporates technology that "repairs" some of the damaged caused by a low quality source.

Finally, we integrated the new with the classic, and included our award-winning and worldwide patent holding amplifier technology, the SoundEngine. This amplifier design completely turns ordinary amplifier designs upside down. The result is a purer and smoother sound with low distortion, as well as ultra dynamic bass due to a high damping factor. And yes, you can also use your headphones, and it uses up to 60% less power than an ordinary amplifier. So, what are you standing there thinking about?

Damping factor -

Technically - it is a term describing the difference between the output impedance of the amplifier and the load impedance of the loudspeaker.

Practically - It will determine the stability of the amplifier. It needs to stop the “return kick” of current from the loudspeaker or it will be knocked out of balance.

Eeeuhhmm? - Sonically, a higher damping factor means better bass control. Lower damping factor means fluffy bass.

Standard - The industry average is 60-80. Hegel is 1000-4000. That is what makes Hegel so tight and dynamic.

Stereolife H360 review

"If you need an amplifier "for life" - if you are tired of being half way there, if you need power to drive your speakers without resorting to monoblocks the size of a subwoofer, or you just want to have a 100 percent high end system in one box. The H360 is a must to listen to."

Hi-Fi Choice (UK) H360 review

"Yet, in summary I want to change my sporting analogy. In Hegel combining its extensive know-how around lowering distortion, eradicating noise and preserving phase and transient timing, the H360 is achieving something that is much greater than the sum of the beneficial parts. It’s the effect of watching a truly talented footballer like Messi or Cantona on the ball – time slows down and skill just expresses itself beautifully. Music I know extremely well is refreshed and the artist’s intent becomes clearer. It’s not a matter of extra detail revealed, it’s just effortless, unhampered communication. The sheer cleanliness of the H360’s delivery means I’m better able to understand and enjoy my music"

“The integrated amplifier is coming of age again, and in the H360 Hegel has created a new reference product in its range that looks to be creating a whole new benchmark performance for others to try their best to match” Chris Ward Hi-Fi Choice (UK) - September 2015

H360 amp/DAC

Hegel H360 is a giant among integrated amplifiers. With 250 watts per channel into 8 ohms and a damping factor of more than 4000, it will control virtually any loudspeaker on the market. Thanks to the patented SoundEngine technology, this beast of an amplifier combines power, dynamics, finesse and musicality like no other integrated amp on the market. The connectivity is more of a bonus... There are balanced and unbalanced analog inputs. There is a Home Theatre bypass. There are optical and coaxial digital inputs, as well as a USB input for any signal up to DSD128... And, yes - it is also a streamer. Need we say more?

The core of everything Hegel is sound quality, and the H360 is no exception. The obvious benefit of the H360 is easy to see - power. It can deliver 2 x 250 watts per channel into 8 Ohms, and is stable even in lower impedances. Furthermore, the damping factor of more than 4000 makes certain it can take control over even the most demanding loudspeakers. The H360 will always play with great authority and ease.

Rarely is such power combined with finesse. However, specially designed power supplies driving precision volume attenuators contributes to an extremely low noise floor. Hand matching near perfect transistor pairs in the input stage reduces harmonic distortion. Our patented SoundEngine technology reduces over all distortion, and especially cross-over distortion. Our designers understand how transistors work, down to the atomic level, and have used all this knowledge in designing the H360.

The H360 incorporates a high quality DAC, using Hegel’s proprietary re-clocking. The benefit of this is that we can make everyday sources sound really good. Sources like a phone or a computer. This is why we have also included functionality like Apple AirPlay and DLNA streaming. There is also a reference class USB input, supporting all formats including native DSD64 and DSD128.

There is an abundance of inputs, ranging from balanced AES/EBU and BNC connectors, to Network and USB connections - with the latter also accepting DSD signals. The built-in volume attenuator allows you to connect directly to a power amplifier or a pair of active loudspeakers. Highly advanced power supplies and careful lay-out brings the noise floor down towards a mind blowing -150dB. In short... Do you even dare to try it?

When designing a digital-to-analog converter of world class, you are essentially making a masterpiece. One for others to try and copy. It is not enough to select the best components on the market and lay them out cleverly. When creating a masterpiece, you must question if you can make it better than the best. The HD30 was just such a masterpiece project. To reach goals that, up until now, was seen as unobtainable, we needed to tweak the world’s best measuring equipment available. Just to be able to fine-tune our clock crystals and power supplies. We designed master clocks from the ground up and went to great lengths to design ultra low noise power supplies and shielding from outside interference. The results are stunning. The musicality of the HD30 is at a level never before heard. You can experience instruments and virtually feel the room they play in. You feel the smile widening in your face and the hair rising on your arms when the HD30 begins to play. The finger touching the string, a millisecond before the guitar starts to sound. The singer drawing that breath of anticipation right before he starts playing in front of a live crowd.

Whether you choose to use Apple AirPlay, a CD-player, a computer or any other device. The HD30 will bring all the music and enthusiasm that exists in the recording.

H160 amp/DAC

The H160 amplifier has one purpose, and one purpose only - to allow you to connect whatever device you want and make it sound as good as it possibly can. First of all, we designed an integrated amplifier with a broader set of connections than any other amplifier on the market, in this category. There is a wide variety of connections, varying from classic balanced and unbalanced analog connections, to Home Theatre integration and onwards to various digital inputs. You can also stream wireless music to it from devices with Apple AirPlay or DLNA. Secondly, we realized that not all the devices you choose to connect are designed to be high-end music performers. This meant we had to develop a range of unique technologies and implementations to make certain that your phone, tablet or CD-player could reach its fullest potential. The H160 incorporates technology that "repairs" some of the damaged caused by a low quality source.

Finally, we integrated the new with the classic, and included our award-winning and worldwide patent holding amplifier technology, the SoundEngine. This amplifier design completely turns ordinary amplifier designs upside down. The result is a purer and smoother sound with low distortion, as well as ultra dynamic bass due to a high damping factor. And yes, you can also use your headphones, and it uses up to 60% less power than an ordinary amplifier. So, what are you standing there thinking about?

Damping factor -

Technically - it is a term describing the difference between the output impedance of the amplifier and the load impedance of the loudspeaker.

Practically - It will determine the stability of the amplifier. It needs to stop the “return kick” of current from the loudspeaker or it will be knocked out of balance.

Eeeuhhmm? - Sonically, a higher damping factor means better bass control. Lower damping factor means fluffy bass.

Standard - The industry average is 60-80. Hegel is 1000-4000. That is what makes Hegel so tight and dynamic.

H160 amp/DAC

The H160 amplifier has one purpose, and one purpose only - to allow you to connect whatever device you want and make it sound as good as it possibly can. First of all, we designed an integrated amplifier with a broader set of connections than any other amplifier on the market, in this category. There is a wide variety of connections, varying from classic balanced and unbalanced analog connections, to Home Theatre integration and onwards to various digital inputs. You can also stream wireless music to it from devices with Apple AirPlay or DLNA. Secondly, we realized that not all the devices you choose to connect are designed to be high-end music performers. This meant we had to develop a range of unique technologies and implementations to make certain that your phone, tablet or CD-player could reach its fullest potential. The H160 incorporates technology that "repairs" some of the damaged caused by a low quality source.

Finally, we integrated the new with the classic, and included our award-winning and worldwide patent holding amplifier technology, the SoundEngine. This amplifier design completely turns ordinary amplifier designs upside down. The result is a purer and smoother sound with low distortion, as well as ultra dynamic bass due to a high damping factor. And yes, you can also use your headphones, and it uses up to 60% less power than an ordinary amplifier. So, what are you standing there thinking about?

Damping factor -

Technically - it is a term describing the difference between the output impedance of the amplifier and the load impedance of the loudspeaker.

Practically - It will determine the stability of the amplifier. It needs to stop the “return kick” of current from the loudspeaker or it will be knocked out of balance.

Eeeuhhmm? - Sonically, a higher damping factor means better bass control. Lower damping factor means fluffy bass.

Standard - The industry average is 60-80. Hegel is 1000-4000. That is what makes Hegel so tight and dynamic.

The HD30 is the ultimate digital control center. It does everything you can dream of, and does so with world-class quality. There is an abundance of inputs, ranging from balanced AES/EBU and BNC connectors, to Network and USB connections - with the latter also accepting DSD signals. The built-in volume attenuator allows you to connect directly to a power amplifier or a pair of active loudspeakers. Highly advanced power supplies and careful lay-out brings the noise floor down towards a mind blowing -150dB. In short... Do you even dare to try it?

When designing a digital-to-analog converter of world class, you are essentially making a masterpiece. One for others to try and copy. It is not enough to select the best components on the market and lay them out cleverly. When creating a masterpiece, you must question if you can make it better than the best. The HD30 was just such a masterpiece project. To reach goals that, up until now, was seen as unobtainable, we needed to tweak the world’s best measuring equipment available. Just to be able to fine-tune our clock crystals and power supplies. We designed master clocks from the ground up and went to great lengths to design ultra low noise power supplies and shielding from outside interference. The results are stunning. The musicality of the HD30 is at a level never before heard. You can experience instruments and virtually feel the room they play in. You feel the smile widening in your face and the hair rising on your arms when the HD30 begins to play. The finger touching the string, a millisecond before the guitar starts to sound. The singer drawing that breath of anticipation right before he starts playing in front of a live crowd.

Whether you choose to use Apple AirPlay, a CD-player, a computer or any other device. The HD30 will bring all the music and enthusiasm that exists in the recording.

RRP £3200
