Hegel V10 MM/MC Phonostage Preamplifier

The Hegel V10 introduces a fresh perspective on traditional technology. Drawing from three decades of expertise in designing cutting-edge discrete transistor circuits, we've crafted a phono preamplifier unlike any other. It boasts neutrality, dynamics, and exceptional transparency, all aimed at delving deep into your vinyl records to reveal every nuance of the music. The V10 is meticulously engineered to capture the essence of the sound, bringing you closer to the music and immersing you in the groove.

Best Vinyl Experience

Listening to vinyl is a tactile journey, from carefully handling the record to the anticipation of the needle drop. With the V10, we strive to elevate this special experience even further. Developed from scratch and incorporating ingenious and innovative technologies, the V10 delivers unparalleled transparency and spatiality, making the music as tangible and lifelike as the vinyl itself.

Precision Engineering for Optimal Performance

Every aspect of the V10 is meticulously designed to optimise the sound quality of your music. The chassis is divided into two compartments, isolating the power supplies from the delicate amplification circuitry to eliminate interference. Gold-plated terminals, balanced XLR outputs, and a custom grounding screw ensure the best possible connections. The input stage utilises ultra-low-noise discrete JFET transistors for both Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil (MC) inputs, ensuring minimal external noise. The MC input features four parallel-connected transistors to achieve complete silence and eliminate bias current feedback to the cartridge coil.

Ultra-Low-Noise Amplification

The input signal passes through equally silent amplifier circuits, where ultra-low-noise power supplies built with discrete bipolar transistors maintain minimal signal noise. This results in extremely accurate amplification of the input signal from the turntable. The V10 is supplied with a linear, low-noise, analogue AC power supply featuring a large custom-designed E-core transformer housed separately to eliminate interference.


The V10 is configured out of the box as an excellent plug-and-play MM preamplifier, but it's highly customisable to cater to individual preferences. When using an MM cartridge, capacitance can be adjusted between 100 and 467 pF, while impedance for MC cartridges can be set between 33 and 550 ohms or fixed at 47 kohms. Gain can be increased by 5, 10, or 12 dB to match the output of other sources. The V10 also features a Subsonic Filter to remove unwanted low-frequency noise and an adjustable auto standby function for added convenience.

  • MM and MC: Compatible with both Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil (MC) cartridges for versatile use with different turntable setups.
  • Subsonic Filter: Includes a subsonic filter to eliminate low-frequency rumble and unwanted vibrations, ensuring clean and accurate sound reproduction.
  • Balanced (XLR) Output: Equipped with balanced XLR output connections for improved noise rejection and signal integrity over long cable runs.
  • Highly Optimizable: Offers extensive options for customization and optimization to suit individual preferences and system configurations.
  • Auto Standby: Features an auto standby function that automatically switches the device to standby mode when not in use, conserving energy and extending component lifespan.
