The H390 is a REBEL by offering much of the performance of our Reference products, albeit at a lower price. A REBEL that in one integrated product offers the same as others do in two or three. A REBEL that provides world-class sound, jaw-dropping power and comes packed with convenient services. Nicknaming the H390 "Robin Hood" is a bit bold, you may think. After all, it isn't pocket money and we are not giving it away to the poor. But it is a rebellion against the established. It is a rebellion because it offers extraordinary resolution and musical quality, typically found only in the most esoteric products, but at a reasonable price. It is a rebellion against the establishment of "forcing" consumers into a user interface defined by the amplifier/streamer manufacturer. The H390 is very much at the tip of the spear in Hegel's pursuit of making mainstream sources sound their very best. Meaning the H390 is not just for the Audiophile. It is a product for the entire family to enjoy.
At the heart of the H390 is Hegel's patented SoundEngine 2 amplifier section. The SoundEngine 2, in many ways, works like a noise cancelling headphone. A computer inside will sample what comes into the amplifier and compares it to what comes out. The computer subtracts the difference (distortion) and then add it into the music but in reverse phase. The result being that, without any time delay, the SoundEngine cancels out almost all errors made by the amplifier. Leaving you with the most musical and natural sound you ever have experienced. Then there is digital. If not using a turntable, you are probably using digital connections. Hegel designs both the analogue and digital sections from, the ground up and in house. The digital section in the H390 is unique in that regardless of the signal type or input, the music signal remains unchanged and untampered with in the H390. We call it a "bit perfect" DA-Converter. This is digital in its purest form. For those interested in deep tech, we even design digital clocks that will follow the sampling frequency in the music and "down-clock" when receiving a low-resolution file. For the non-techie, the result is a far more natural and "analogue" sound as well as an unbelievable soundstage and realism.
Finally, let's talk about connectivity. The H390 has Apple Airplay and UPnP streaming. We offer free updates with services like Spotify Connect, IP Control, Control4, and Roon. It supports most audio formats like DSD and MQA. All inputs are configurable for volume bypass, so you can integrate in a home theater or with a Bluesound or Sonos. Almost whatever you want, you can do it with the H390. The H390 is a complete product. Great care has been taken in every step of the design. From carefully selecting and matching components to using the best measurement equipment in the world, in combination with our own ears. Real people gave us input on how they would want to use a stereo system. You can connect virtually anything you like. We call it Robin Hood because it takes strengths from our reference products and offers at a lower price.

“The H390 is a superb sounding and highly functional integrated amplifier that will make you question the need for separates. Its powerful, meaty sound is addicting, and its huge power reserves will make speaker pairing easy and painless.”
New Record Day
“I came to really enjoy this amplifier's general air of musical confidence; it's not showy or glib, just honest, competent and powerful. That means you can enjoy pretty much any genre of music with it.”
“If your fun fund has grown in the absence of the opportunity to spend on more ephemeral pleasures like holidays, or if you just fancy moving your listening experience to another level, you owe it to yourself to shortlist the H390. I will be very surprised if you don’t love it as much as I have.”
Lyd & Bilde
“I am left with the impression that the H390 has almost everything I liked with the big brother H590. It says a bit, because I've hardly heard a better amplifier for under 100,000 kroner. The swept floor with the McIntosh MA7000, which we still have in the test room."
“By amplification capabilities alone, it’s more than worth its asking price – the excellent DAC section and media rendering capabilities are just further icing on the cake."
“Those who think expensive speakers should be paired only with equally expensive electronics might balk at the idea of driving a $50,000 pair of speakers with a $6000 integrated-DAC. But if you could hear what Diego, Roger, and I heard in my room, you wouldn’t think such a pairing outlandish at all.”
"…the H390 is sensationally good value, with a clean, powerful sound and bags of musicality, not to mention exceptional flexibility including onboard network streaming."
"I expected the Hegel H390 to be good because of its foundations, but I didn’t expect it to be this good. This has to be one of the best integrated amplifiers money can buy at the moment, and its only really bettered by its bigger brother, unless you spend truly epic amounts of money. Wow!"

"Clear design, sensible features, high performance and superior sound quality make the Hegel H390 one of the best deals on the market today."
You get a big dose of the performance of Hegel’s H590 flagship integrated amplifier at not much more than half the price! Still has gobs of power to drive even very demanding speakers and combines that authority with a very refined DAC as well. Power, refinement and a lot of functionality all packaged in one box to reduce signal path, cabling, etc. Our highest recommendation.
