EISA HIGH-END AMPLIFIER 2019-2020 Hegel H390

At first glance, Hegel’s H390 looks like a slimmed-down, more affordable version of the Norwegian company’s mighty H590 amplifier – which is hardly surprising, because that’s just what it is. However, there’s more to the H390 than that: it offers almost all of the performance of its ‘big brother’, for about half the price! That means the ability to drive just about any speaker to stunning effect with its 250W per channel output, built-in UPnP and AirPlay 2 streaming, Roon Ready certification and MQA plus DSD decoding. Access online services, plug in digital or analogue sources, or simply send it music from your phone – this superbly flexible, yet simple-looking, amplifier will do it all.
