This integrated amplifier from Hegel has a built-in USB sound card so you can enjoy audio from your computer with much improved sound quality. The H100 is extremely powerful for its price. With 2*120 watts in 8 ohms and 2*220 watts in 4 ohms, most speakers will be an easy match. The H100 carries much of the technologies developed for our Reference pre amplifiers and power amplifiers.
One of the most important new features is the on board Hegel USB sound card. It is easy to use, flexible and much improves the sound quality from any computer on the market. Simply hook it up to the USB output on your PC or MAC and it will install itself within seconds. Now you can enjoy all the new digital media with superb Hegel sound quality. Streaming internet radio, streaming music services like Rhapsody or Spotify, downloaded movies, computer games and much more.
Compared to the H70, the biggest difference is a larger powersupply and twice the number of output transistors, giving it a more potent and dynamic style. The H100 also has the FET-technology, also known as Hegel Next-Gen. This technology severely reduce higher order harmonic distortion, giving a smoother and more detailed sound. Many would describe it at "more air around the instruments". An extra benefit is a more rhythmic and dynamic sound. By popular demand we have also included a Home Theatre input on the H100. This input has a fixed volume so you can use it as a power amplifier together with a surround receiver. In addition there are 4 unbalanced and 1 balanced input.
