Hans Wetzel has posted a review of the Hegel Music Systems H300 integrated amplifier and DAC ($5500) at GoodSound! His conclusions:
“Hegel Music Systems’ H300 integrated amplifier is sublime. Quiet, deeply resolving, thoughtfully connective and functional, and operated with a remote control that looks and feels as if designed specifically for it — a rarity, in my experience — its performance is almost as impressive as its price. The H300’s evolved neutrality of sound and unified design pay full homage to the philosopher for which it’s named. Simply put, the H300 is superb in every way. Consider the bar raised.”
