The Hegel H120 Integrated Streaming Amplifier is a small step up from other entry level amplifiers in terms of price, but it is a solid step up in features and performance. The significantly larger power supply creates a more dynamic sound and for combining with large loudspeakers presenting more challenging drive loads.

The digital section is taken directly from its bigger siblings, and this is really the core of the H120. We see the typical user of the H120 as people who are into digital music streaming. For the money, we claim that the H120 does that better than anything else.

Hegel H120 Video Review - by Studio Incar

Digital-to-Analog-Conversion

The digital-to-analog conversion is of the highest quality in the H120, with technology crafted from the ground up by Hegel. You can take full control of the digital data stream, using technology developed from Hegel's absolute reference products, ensuring digital music delivery in its purest form. The result for you is perfectly natural sound, without any artifacts that make you want to turn the volume down.

Network Streaming Connectivity

The Hegel H120 has the following streaming capabilities:

More features are already in progress and will be offered at no cost, using the easy Firmware update functionality. All inputs are configurable for volume bypass, so you can integrate in a home theater. Whatever you want, you can do it with the H120.

SoundEngine 2 Technology

The H120 uses the Hegel SoundEngine 2 amplifier platform allowing a damping factor higher than 2000 together with extremely low distortion levels. In many ways it works like a noise cancelling headphone. It compares the output of the amplifier with the input. It detects all the sound pollution (distortion), and plays this forward into the speaker output, but in reverse phase.

Like 1 minus 1 equals 0. It cancels out all pollution in real time, leaving you with only the most natural sound. The SoundEngine technology has been developed over more than 30 years, from conception to where it is now. Millions of dollars were invested in initial development. It is what makes possible the sound performance for the money in the H120.

Is the Hegel H120 Roon Ready?

Yes. As of 3rd March 2022, Hegel released firmware update p5117.31, which includes Roon compatibilty. The H120 has been certified as Roon Ready and Roon tested.
