Translated conclusion: "The H190 sounds fantastic and sets a new level of performance for both Hegel and the price class over all.”

hi-fi+

"You could happily use the H90 with a pair of reasonably priced loudspeakers today, upgrade the speakers significantly without needing to touch the amplifier. Like its predecessor, only more so, the H90 is a solid, powerful recommendation at this price and way beyond!"

Lyd & Bilde (Google translated)

"The H190 sets a new standard in the price range, compared to everything else we've heard."

"The H190 is just one more example of a revelation I’ve had with Hegel."

Incorporating the latest Hegel technology as seen in the H360 and Röst integrated amplifiers, the H190 successfully bridges the gap between the two. An incredibly robust 150W into 8 ohms and 250W into 4 ohms provides plenty of power for the vast majority of speakers and rooms. The H160 was one of the most successful products ever for Hegel and this H190 makes a number of advancements to the former EISA award winning product. Absolutely outstanding value in a high end integrated amp.
