    Re: Hegel 590

    I assume the 590 is better overall than the 360 but is the character the same Hegel house sound, or, is there some actual departure??

    The h360 really made the mids in my salon1's come alive compared to the parasound a21 and several other amps that I couldn't tell apart from each other. I would probably be smarter buying an h20 to bi amp my speakers since sometimes it really is power that brings out the most in speakers.

    Steve, my local Hegel dealer carries Revel, that is his favorite combo as well. He sold the Salon2's and is using the new 228b for now. Before that he used the Salon2's and really liked the synergy there.

    Just my opinion, I personally liked the Performa 2 series better than the 3, the Ultima is more like the 2. The 3 series to me has a more full or less controlled bass that I believe benefits from the Hegel.

    I bought a PAIR OF F52'S after demoing the f208 and them side by side even though i conceded the f208 was more open and the drivers better integrated i still preferred the f 52 and if I owned the hegel at that time I probably would have been set. The salon2's are overkill for my room and income.
    Revel salon2's black, Hegel h360, rega jupiter, roon nucleus, revox tuner.
