    Soundstage Ultra review Hegel's new HD12 DSD DAC/headphone amp/pre amp

    http://www.soundstageultra.com/inde...usic-systems-hd12-digital-to-analog-converter

    Introducing the next generation of Hegel D/A-Converters - The HD12, introduces a combination of great new functionality as well as greatly improved sound quality. First of all, a brand new USB interface allows you to use all common sampling frequencies up to 24 bit / 192 kHz. Also, this new interface allows playback of native DSD-files, without conversion to PCM. Furthermore, the HD12 has equal quality on the 2 optical and 1 coaxial inputs. Versatility - With an HD12 you can upgrade virtually any system to Hegel standards. There is a very high quality headphone output, regular RCA phono outputs as well as true balanced XLR outputs. This means you can connect to any receiver/amplifier and/or subwoofer. However, the built-in and remote-controlled volume attenuator also allows direct connection to a pair of active loudspeakers or to a power amplifer. High End to the people.

    Sound - New research in the digital domain has resulted in extremely low jitter levels. In particular, great improvements have been made to “skirting”, a distortion that reduces the timing and precision in the sound. You hear it very well in drums and dynamic elements of the music. Another large improvement comes in the analog part of the D/A-Converter. We are talking about a noise floor of -145dB. It means the HD12 brings out so much more of those tiny details that suck you in to the music.

    Quite simply a significant upgrade and a remarkable D/A-Converter.

    Technical Details

    Digital inputs: Coaxial / optical up to 24bit / 192kHz, USB up to 24bit / 192kHz, DSD64
    Dac IC / digital filter: 32 bit

    Digital inputs: 1 coaxial, 2 optical and 1 USB-B (2.0)
    Analog outputs: XLR balanced and RCA / phono unbalanced/ headphone
    Frequency response: 0Hz - 50kHz
    Phase response: Linear phase analog filter
    Noise floor: -145dB
    Distortion: Typically less than 0.0005%

    Dimensions / weight: 6cm x 21cm x 26cm (HxWxD) / 3.5kg
    Dimensions / weight: 2.35” x 8.3” x 10.24” (HxBxD), 6.6 lbs

    RRP £900

    Hi-Fi Choice reviews Hegel's new H160 amp/DAC

    The H160 amplifier has one purpose, and one purpose only - to allow you to connect whatever device you want and make it sound as good as it possibly can. First of all, we designed an integrated amplifier with a broader set of connections than any other amplifier on the market, in this category. There is a wide variety of connections, varying from classic balanced and unbalanced analog connections, to Home Theatre integration and onwards to various digital inputs. You can also stream wireless music to it from devices with Apple AirPlay or DLNA. Secondly, we realized that not all the devices you choose to connect are designed to be high-end music performers. This meant we had to develop a range of unique technologies and implementations to make certain that your phone, tablet or CD-player could reach its fullest potential. The H160 incorporates technology that “repairs” some of the damaged caused by a low quality source.

    Finally, we integrated the new with the classic, and included our award-winning and worldwide patent holding amplifier technology, the SoundEngine. This amplifier design completely turns ordinary amplifier designs upside down. The result is a purer and smoother sound with low distortion, as well as ultra dynamic bass due to a high damping factor. And yes, you can also use your headphones, and it uses up to 60% less power than an ordinary amplifier. So, what are you standing there thinking about?

    Technical Details

    Power output spk: 150 w/pc into 8 Ohms, 250 w/pc into 4 Ohms
    Power output hp: 270 mw/pc into 64 Ohms
    Analog inputs: 1 balanced (XLR), 1 unbalanced (RCA), 1 home theatre
    Analog outputs: 1 fixed line level (RCA), 1 variable line level (RCA)
    Digital inputs: 1 coaxial, 3 optical, 1 USB, 1 ethernet (RJ45)
    Headphone output: 6,3 mm Jack (front)
    Frequency response: 5Hz-100kHz
    Signal-to-noise ratio: More than 100dB
    Crosstalk: Less than -100dB
    Distortion: 0.005% @ 50W 8 Ohms 1kHz
    Intermodulation: Less than 0.01% (19kHz + 20kHz)
    Damping factor: More than 1000 (main power output stage)
    Dimensions / weight: 12cm x 43cm x 41cm (HxWxD) / 19kg (shipping)
    Dimensions / weight: 7.72” x 16.93” x 16.15” (HxBxD), 42lbs (shipping)

    Stereophile has reviewed Hegel's new H160 Integrated Amplifier/DAC (June 2015 issue) -

    "What the Hegel H160 did better than any but the absolute best amps I have heard was to generate correct-feeling tonal and structural balances in every loudspeaker I connected it to".

    "The H160 is ready to make a diverse lot of audiophiles very happy - maybe even Class A in Stereophile's 'Recommended Components' happy!"
