    Hegel 390 arrives



    Sweet sounding unit. 250 watts/ch. Fabulous sounding internal DAC. A steal at $6k

    Re: Hegel 390 arrives

    We just tried the Aqua La Voce with Lumin U1 mini into the 390 and it was excellent. Basically a $12k ish total setup (not including speakers or cables). We are using the Harbeth 30.2ís and it sounds awesome.

    Roon enabled coming for the 390 and 590. Soon!

    Technically A/B is correct, but it uses Hegel's patented SoundEngine technology which is a feed-forward design that cancels crossover distortion to provide Class A bias sonic performance with AB efficiency.

    This sounds like a piece that would be perfect for bluegrass. This would be all he needs to make his Harbeth speakers sing plus it has a built in DAC and he’s ready to stream digital.

    Very nice Mike! We sure like the H190 and H590 we display....even the little H90 as well. Haven't had a chance to play with a H390 yet. But, performance for the money with their integrated amps is extremely impressive.

    Thanks. Agreed. The 590 and this 390 are outstanding.
