The Hegel H95 integrated amplifier replaces the H90 in September 2020. The H90 was a big step for Hegel when launched 3 years ago. Because of the implementation of the SoundEngine2 module it sounded a great deal better than its predecessor H80. As good as the H90 was and still is, its streaming and digital capabilities are slowly becoming obsolete. Hegel have since designed the H190 and H120. Both of which offer both Spotify Connect, a far more stable UPnP connection as well as upcoming updates making them AirPlay2 compatible.
With the Hegel H95 we wanted to offer some of the same functionality at an even lower price point. We did however have to make some sacrifices compared to the H120 and the H190. The H95 will not get IP- and Controll4-controll nor will it be upgradable to Roon End-Point. What we have done is radically improve the quality of the onboard DAC.
The Hegel H95 has the same menu system as its bigger brothers. Meaning you can software update it over internet and via the on-screen menu. You can also enter the menu to see its IP address and other information. All inputs are individually configurable so you can set them as a home theater bypass input. Another popular feature is the ability to set a maximum volume level individually for the headphone output and the speaker output. You can also customize the start-up volume for when the unit is powered up. This must be done with a RC8 remote (not included).
Finally, the new Hegel H95 will wake up from standby on LAN. So, when the unit is off, you can still select it in Spotify, AirPlay etc. and get it to wake up.
