The design of the HDA range draws upon all of Arcam’s experience as one of the UK’s most respected audio companies, to produce Arcam’s best performing range of audio products yet – using the best quality components and engineering practices, the HDA range is designed and built to give you years of listening enjoyment.
There are two frequent problems with hi-fi amplifiers. Class A, the traditional audiophile’s choice, uses a single power supply constantly running at full capacity, even when there’s no signal coming through. Great for reproducing those subtle details at low levels however struggles to provide extreme power when needed.
Class A/B, the most common amp class, switches between the two internal amplifiers, one for each half of the waveform. Far more efficient but often a recipe for crossover distortion, since those low-level details we crave can get lost within any mis-match between the two switching over.
Class G is essentially a hybrid amplifier, utilising Class A specifically for low-level signals, but when required switching in an additional power supply to power those larger sections of the waveform.
“The entrance into real high-end tube amplification”.
The Scorpio represents a dramatic rethinking of economic vacuum tube based integrated amplifier industrial design while retaining the basic architecture as our highly regarded “Spirit” amplifier.
The Scorpio integrated amplifier combines neutrality, realistic dynamics and power projection, true musicality with high resolution.
Perfect finish, elegant discrete design and outstanding sonic performance make the “Scorpio” unique, setting a new price-to-value standard in its class.
We are proud to introduce our latest third-generation integrated amplifier, the Triton III. This design presents a substantial upgrade to our very popular Triton II stereo integrated amplifiers, highly-regarded for providing world class performance in a beautiful-engineered, compact, and elegant package. All the gain stages have been re-designed and optimized as well to provide for the shortest signal path and the most direct signal flow. The result is a significant advance in sonic performance, wider and deeper airy soundstage with greatly improved powerful bass punch and dynamics. Musical finesse and superb powerful performance has been combined without compromise into one convenient chassis and affordable pricing. Compared with many top grade integrated amplifiers, the Triton III is a mid-priced unit, but we are confident that value and musical performance is approached maybe by few KT150 designs only, regardless of cost.
The Triton integrated is also available as a pure stereo power amp, the Triton PA!
Standing on the shoulders of GIANTS, the H120 carries forward the proud history of HEGEL amplifiers. The multi award winning designs that over the years have dazzled listeners with their combination of raw dynamics and delicate naturality. The H120 carries that legacy with it, but in a smaller and more affordable package.
Hegel presents the H190, an amp with DLNA streaming capabilities that can play music from any streaming platform including AirPlay. With configurable inputs, a high end DAC, and a front facing headphone output you can enjoy ease of use with ultimate sound quality. In anodised black aluminium with an oled display, the H190 is beautiful enough to be the centerpiece in any system and powerful enough to drive almost any loudspeaker on the market.
