The H120 is a relatively affordable integrated amplifier. The hegel H120 is a small step higher than our entry amplifiers in terms of price, but it is a strong step forward in functions and performance. The considerably larger food ensures a more dynamic sound and can be combined with large speakers that yield more challenging drive loads. The digital part has been taken directly from its larger brothers and sisters, and this is really the core of the H120. We see the typical user of the H120 as people who love digital music streaming. For the money we claim that the H120 is doing better than anything.
The digital-to-analog conversion is of the highest quality in the H120, with technology that through hegel has been built up from the ground. We take full control over the digital data flow, with the help of technology developed on the basis of our absolute reference products, and ensure digital music delivery in its purest form. The result for you is a perfect natural sound, without artifacts so you would like to lower the volume. The H120 has Apple AirPlay, Spotify Connect, IP Control, Control4 and UPNP streaming. More functions are already in progress and will be offered for free, using the simple software update functionality. All inputs are configurable for Volume bypass, so that you can integrate into a home theater or with (for example) a Bluesound Or Sonos. Whatever you want, you can do it with the H120.
The H120 uses it hegel Soundengine 2-amplater platform that makes a damping factor of more than 2000 possible, together with extremely low distortion levels. Details about the Soundengine can be found on hegel.com. In many ways it works like headphones with noise reduction. It compares the output of the amplifier with the input. It detects all sound pollution (distortion) and plays this forward in the speaker output, but in the reverse phase. As if 1 min 1 is equal to 0. It eliminates all pollution in real time, so that you only have the most natural sound. The Soundengine technology has been developed in more than 30 years, from the start to where it is today. Millions of dollars were invested in the first development. It is what makes the noise performance for the money in the H120 possible.
