The Hegel H600 flagship Integrated Amplifier

Designed to deliver exceptional audio performance and ease of use. With an impressive 303 watts in 8 ohms, a damping factor of 4000, and 2 ohms drive capability, this powerhouse can confidently drive any speaker with outstanding results. The amplifier utilizes a dual mono design, effectively emulating the performance of two mono amps within a single unit.

Hegel engineers have meticulously crafted the electronic circuitry in-house, using only the finest-quality components, providing unparalleled control over the amplification process. This, combined with Hegel's cutting-edge SoundEngine2 correction technology, ensures that the audio signal stays true to the original recording, resulting in an expansive soundstage, exceptional dynamic range, and precise bass control. Every detail and nuance in the music is revealed with astonishing clarity.

The H600's D/A Converter is a bit-perfect design, guaranteeing pure audio fidelity without any resampling or upsampling. Its dedicated power supply and advanced shielding ensure uncompromised and stable performance, delivering incredible resolution and smoothness.

The amplifier's chassis is crafted from aluminum, specifically chosen for improved audio performance. The design incorporates a solid bottom chassis and top cover with milled vents for enhanced rigidity and airflow. High-quality RCA connectors and optimized positioning of analog and digital connectors contribute to reduced noise and superior channel separation. The amplifier's large touch-controlled knobs provide effortless and intuitive operation, exuding a delightful tactile feel with every adjustment.

In line with Hegel's belief that great audio should be user-friendly, the H600 offers a comprehensive list of streaming options, including UPnP streaming, Spotify Connect, Airplay 2, Tidal Connect, Chromecast built-in, and Roon Ready (pending). Regular firmware updates ensure the amplifier stays up-to-date with the latest streaming capabilities.

Customizability is another key aspect of the H600. Digital inputs, excluding USB, feature signal sense, enabling devices to wake the amplifier and set the appropriate input automatically. The volume can also be limited to suit personal preferences. Additionally, remote-control programming allows common TV remotes to command the amplifier, streamlining TV sound adjustments for all household members. Most inputs can be set as fixed high-level Home Theater inputs, making integration with surround receivers or multi-room devices seamless.

Regarding connectivity, the H600 offers a wide array of analog and digital inputs to accommodate various audio sources, including True Balanced XLR inputs, RCA inputs, LAN network port, USB 32/384 input (supporting DSD256/DoP), optical inputs, coaxial input, and BNC true 75-ohm input. The amplifier also provides RCA fixed-level and variable-level outputs, along with a BNC fixed-level true 75-ohm digital output.

In summary, the H600 is an extraordinarily capable and superb-sounding amplifier that combines high-end audio performance with user-friendly features. Its sleek, minimalistic design complements any interior style, making it the perfect hub for digital music and a home for all connected sources. With its remarkable sound quality, the H600 delivers an audio experience fit for the most discerning audiophiles.

Before the H600 arrived, I didn’t realize how much better my stereo could sound. It’s rare for a product to make me question my own system and to recognize that I am missing something. The Hegel has done just that.
