    Hegel 390 arrives

    Mike, how warm or hot do the Hegel 360, 390 and 590 run at normal listening volumes of say 70-80db with speakers having 85 to 90db sensitivity?

    ....no, I'm not referring to the infamous flaming Hegel

    I'm not Mike, but I can tell you our H590 runs at about 105-110F (40-45°C).

    I used the h360 to drive the salon 2's and thermal protection kicks in before the outer case gets as warm as all the other amps I use/d. I think hegel took care of the overheating problem, btw when the protection kicked in I was rockin +100 db. another pair I had that were only rated 87 1m1w I never even turned the dial past 55.
