Hegel H30 amplifier delivers tremendously deep bass and unheard high frequenciesDale Davies ▼ | June 7, 2019
With a power rating of more than 1,1 kW in 8 ohms it is on the verge of being easier to measure the H30 in horsepower.
Audio The massive H30 mono power amplifiers from Hegel
The H30 is using a new and improved version of the patented Hegel SoundEngine amplifier technology. This further reduce all types of distortion. In addition to the improve SoundEngine we are also using the highest possible level of the Hegel FET-technology in the input stage and the voltage gain stage. This technology reduce a very specific type of distortion called Harmonic Distortion. This particular type of distortion causes what many people call "transistor sound", and this is therefore dramatically reduced in the H30.
It will simply let the music reach you in a different way than what you have ever experienced before. Normally, when you compare a less powerful amplifier with a more powerful amplifier, the most powerful will have a more potent bass, more attack and more "SLAM" than the less powerful one. This is how it works up to a certain point. The Hegel H30 is beyond this point, and all of a sudden the differences become different. The H30 will simply play with a completely undisputed control, regardless of the loudspeakers.
The bass is tremendously deep, but not dominating. The level of detail in the high frequencies are unheard of, but never overbearing. As a mono power amplifier, the H30 has a fully balanced output stage which reduces distortion and cancel out distortion. Further more, the H30 has a much more advanced input stage and voltage gain stage. Both the H4SE and the H30 uses hand matched transistors, but only the H30 uses the special combination of JFET and MOS-FET transistors. ■
