However, underneath its minimalist exterior, the H190v is packed with advanced features. Under the hood, H190v packs a formidable punch.

With 150W class AB power in 8 Ohms, a damping factor of 4000, and a large toroidal transformer paired with high-quality output transistors, this amplifier delivers power and precision in equal measure.

A dedicated and improved power supply for the preamp and DAC section creates a pitch-black background ensuring that the focus remains on the music, where every nuance is delivered with precision and control.

H190v offers a taste of high-end sophistication at a sensible price point.

By incorporating a state-of-the-art phono preamplifier into H190v, you can connect turntables with MM cartridges directly to the amplifier.

The phono input is a scaled-down version of their highly acclaimed V10 phono preamplifier, delivering a detailed, expansive, and powerful sound that breathes new life into any vinyl collection.

For those who appreciate a personal listening experience, H190v boasts a 6.3mm headphone output with a high-quality dedicated headphone amplifier.

Capable of driving even the most demanding headphones, this feature ensures that every nuance of your music is faithfully reproduced.

The inclusion of a comprehensive list of streaming options further enhances the amplifier’s versatility.

With support for AirPlay, Spotify Connect, Roon Ready, and DLNA/UPnP, H190v transforms your space into a hub for seamless music playback.

Hegel H190v is highly customisable to ensure it suits any environment.

The volume can be limited so that it suits your max volume preference.

With their remote-control feature, you can program the amplifier to be commanded by common TV remotes, eliminating the need for using two remotes and making it easier for all household members to get great TV sound.

Most inputs can also be set as a fixed high-level Home Theater input, making it easy to combine H190v with surround receivers or multi-room devices.

For more advanced users, H190v also features IP control for smart home integration with brands like Control4, Crestron, and Savant.

Additionally, it offers a host of inputs and both fixed and variable outputs for connecting external devices, such as subwoofers, providing a customisable audio experience.

Hegel The story begins in 1988. Bent Holter, a student at the Technical University in Trondheim (NTNU) decided to do a thesis under the original design of the transistor used in amplifiers, that would cure the problems of traditional hi-fi systems. Enemy number one was distortion. Holter somehow could not accept the fact that when we supply a simple signal to an amplifier, the output reproduces that signal plus something else; distortion produced by the electronics. Fighting distortion usually means deterioration of other parameters, including damping factor. Holter decided to break free from classic schematics and developed a project that became the basis of what we know today as SoundEngine Technology. And where does the name of the company come from? Well, during his spare time Bent played in a rock-metal band called The Hegel Band. When they needed amplifiers for concerts, he suggested building them himself. His ideas took on real shape, but it took lots of money to refine the technology. Help came from Telenor - one of the biggest players in the telecommunications industry. The early 90s were a period of initial prosperity for the brand. First, they ensured the patented solution known today as SoundEngine. Later a DAC was developed (1994) and the first CD Player came (1996). Over the next eight years, the company has steadily improved its product range and generated more profit year on year. When the financial crisis came, most companies immediately took a defensive strategy which meant cutting costs. Hegel played differently. He hired new engineers to design devices. Sometime later, brand new D/A converters were born. Today Hegel is one of the best-established brands on the Hi-Fi market. We produce integrated, pre and power amplifiers as well as CD players and some of the most modern and sophisticated D/A converters. SoundEngine Technology was just a start. Today there are six more original technical solutions in Hegel's portfolio. The company has dealers in 54 countries and its products are sold all over the world.
