Hegel P20 Pre Amplifier

The Hegel P20 stands as our entry-level preamplifier, offering an accessible gateway into the Hegel Reference line of products. Crafting the P20 was a meticulous endeavour, drawing inspiration from its larger sibling. While scaled-down, it retains many of the admirable traits – an expansive soundstage, deep rhythmic bass response, and impeccable timing. In essence, it brings you closer to the live performance experience.

Craftsmanship and Connectivity

The P20 arrives with a premium system remote control, meticulously milled from a single piece of aluminium. Its bead-blasted and anodised finish mirrors that of the preamplifier, exuding quality at every touch. Featuring a total of five regular inputs, both balanced and unbalanced, it also includes a dedicated Home Theatre input for seamless integration into home theatre systems. Additionally, there are balanced and unbalanced outputs, along with a fixed line-level output.

Setting a New Standard

Our goal with the P20 was not only to offer an affordable entry point but also to establish a new benchmark of price and performance in preamplifiers – an objective we believe we have accomplished. The preamplifier occupies a critical position in a sound system, as even the slightest noise or distortion can compromise the audio quality, obscuring subtle details that breathe life into music.

Innovative Technologies

To achieve exceptional sound quality at a compelling price point, we incorporated innovative technologies, including Silicon Germanium transistors. Additionally, we utilised high-frequency components originally intended for other applications, employing them in novel ways. The outcome is a preamplifier that delivers an open and natural sound, all at a remarkably competitive price.
