The Hegel H95 provides a
dramatically upgraded DAC and streaming capabilities plus
improvements in the analogue section and headphone performance over the former H90.
The Hegel H95 provides some of the most dynamic 60 watts per channel sound you have ever heard and comes with incredible flexibility from a wide variety of features. The H95 includes network streaming via an Ethernet connection, Apple Airplay®, Spotify Connect, optical, coaxial and USB digital inputs, analogue inputs and variable analogue outputs for connection to a subwoofer. Via Ethernet, the Hegel H95 can function as a DLNA Digital Media Renderer. This means that it can receive and play media files from a UPnP/DLNA compatible media player such as BubbleUPnP on Android or mconnect player on iOS. These players on your phone or tablet of choice also allow streaming from cloud content such as TIDAL Hifi. The various inputs on the H95 can be configured as fixed for incorporation into a Home Theatre. There is also an improved high-quality headphone output, a sleek and informative OLED display and remote control. Firmware updates over Ethernet also allow the product to receive enhancements over time as well.
SoundEngine2 incorporated in the H95 reduces distortion and makes certain you hear all those tiny details in the music. The ones that suck you in and give you the feeling of actually being there, while also sounding natural and fluid. SoundEngine2 also quite dramatically improves bass control, and the amplifier's grip of the loudspeakers, which is why even only 60 watts of output power can be enough. The grip, or damping factor as it is called, is up to 20 times higher than the industry average which ensures a dynamic and powerful bass response.
If you aren’t able to get an Ethernet connection to the Hegel H95, you can consider a wifi to Ethernet adapter or a Bluesound Node 2i configured wirelessly with either its optical or coaxial digital output going to the H95. You could also connect a laptop to the USB connector on the H95 as well. You have plenty of streaming options at your disposal. If you would like to play your turntable with the H95, you can add the phono preamplifier of your choice connected to one of the H95 analogue inputs.
The H95 is designed intelligently, making it a perfect stand-alone unit. Connect your TV, cable decoder, phono stage or phones. Add a pair of speakers and you’re done!

"It’d ordinarily be at this point that we’d start the “there is a downside of course...” section of the review, but the fact is that whatever we throw at it, the H95 comes up smelling of roses. Whether it’s called upon to display an effortless lightness and fleet of foot or hefty scale and power, the results are consistently impressive and it never appears wanting.”
Steve Guttenberg Audiophiliac
"The sound is excellent. It's impossible to point out any faults. Its neutrality, transparency, and tangibility make it hard to get bored with the music.”
"The sound is transparent, bass performance magnificent and that DAC is to die for. Clearly and audibly an upgrade from the already-good H90, coupled with some decent loudspeakers this all one needs for a highly enjoyable and revealing music system. Clearly the new Hegel H95 is an allrounder which gets so much right, and more than would usually be expected at this price. Another winner.”
hi-finews & Record Review
“I hoped it would offer some of the magic of the H390, but was unsure how that would be possible at around a third of the price. I needn't have worried…"
“When it comes time to settle down and listen to music, what we ideally want is a hifi that gets out of the way. The Hegel H95 pulls off this disappearing act in such a convincing manner, you may just find yourself exploring music instead of hifi. I can think of no higher praise."
“…the H95 smashes it in the same area that other Hegel amps I’ve heard have smashed it: sound quality. Whether you’re using the onboard digital converter or feeding a high-quality source through one of its analog inputs, the H95 provides an exceptionally clean, extremely detailed, super-dynamic, musical sound through speakers or headphones."
"Hegel I think are continuing to be a “one to watch” manufacturer who, if they continue on this line of quality and focus, can only go on to even bigger things. The upgrades on the already great H90 are well-considered and re-position the H95 as a front running contender in any race at this price point, or somewhat above I would say.”
"Hegel’s entry-level amplifier has just got quite a lot better."
The Hegel H95 has taken the amplification strength of the former H90 and has made a huge upgrade to the internal DAC and streaming capability. Improvements to the analogue implementation and headphone section add even more performance. The quality for the money has just gotten a whole lot better!
