Hegel P30 Pre Amplifier

The P30 is the best preamplifier ever developed by Hegel. With its patented technology and hand matched components, the P30 is a confident contender in the race towards being the best pre amplifier in the world. Regardless of price.

Despite of what many hifi enthusiasts believe, pre amplifiers are actually one of the most difficult audio components to develop. At the same time it is one of the most important components in a well sounding system. The reason is that the signal strength is very low when entering the pre amplifier, and is therefore very susceptible to high frequency noise and distortion elements. The most critical phase in the pre amplifier is the volume regulation, and in the P30 this is a master piece in it self. The physical volume control knob is only used to describe the desired volume output level to the array of Gigahertz MOS-transistors. These direct the music signal through a network of high quality resistors that reduce the signal level.

After the volume control circuit the signal is directed through the amplification circuit. For the first time ever Hegel are using the patented SoundEngine technology in the pre amplifier. Combined with Hegel's use of hand matched FET transistors, this results in unsurpassed levels of musical distortion and noise. In total, the music signal will only pass through 2 transistors and between 1 to 3 resistors on its way through the P30. The sound you hear from the P30 can only be described as organic and very natural. To quote a journalist; "The Hegel sounds so much more natural than my previous reference. And it does so without flashing itself with gold and diamonds".

The Hegel P30 has 2 pairs of balanced inputs (XLR) and 3 regular unbalanced (RCA). In addition to this it has a Home Theatre input that allow you to integrate it in a Home Theatre system. The P30 also has a 3,5 mm IR-direct input and a 12V trigger output connector. The Hegel P30 is available in both silver and black finish, so it can be matched with both the H30 and H20 power amplifiers.

Is the Hegel P30 available in different colors?

The Hegel P30 is available in black and silver colour. The finish is made by blasting the solid aluminium front, side and back panels with tiny glass particles and anodizing the surface.

Can the P30 input source selector be controlled from the remote control?

The P30 source selector can be controlled from the RC2 remote control.

Can the Hegel P30 be used with other amplifiers than the Hegel H30?

All the different Hegel units has got a neutral sound signature, so that they can be used together with other high quality audio units from different manufacturers. The P30 has a very low output impedance and can drive any connected cable and high quality power amplifier. However Hegel recommend you to listen to a combination of a P30 and a H30.

Is the Hegel P30 true balanced?

The P30 is using true electronically balanced circuitry all the way from the inputs to the outputs.
