Hegel P20 Pre Amplifier

The P20 is Hegel's entry level preamplifier and offers an affordable door into the Hegel Reference line of products.

Designing the P20 was not a task Hegel took lightly. Many of the ideas and concepts were taken from its bigger brother. Although scaled down, many of the good characteristics remain: the enormous soundstage, the deep rhythmic bass response, the perfect timing... In short, the sense of being there with the performers.

The P20 comes with a high quality system remote control, milled out of one solid piece of aluminium. It has the same bead blasted and anodized surface finish as the preamplifier itself. You can really feel the quality each part of the P20; not only hear it. There is a total of 5 regular inputs. Both balanced and unbalanced. In addition, a special Home Theatre input allows integration in Home Theatre systems. Finally, there are both balanced and unbalanced outputs as well as a fixed line-level output.

The idea behind the P20 was, as mentioned, to offer a more affordable entry into our line of separates. But most of all, it was to set a new standard of price and performance in preamplifiers. Something we think Hegel have achieved. The preamplifier is perhaps the most delicate unit in a sound system. Because the signal levels are so low, even the tiniest levels of noise or distortion smear the image and mask the small details that enliven the music.

In designing the P20, Hegel achieved the highest quality of sound at such a low price point by using brand new technologies, such as Silicon Germanium transistors. In addition Hegel implemented high frequency components that were not originally designed for audio, and use them in ways that had never been done before. The result is an open and natural sounding preamplifier at a very competitive price.

Is the Hegel P20 available in different colors?

The Hegel P20 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 P20 input source selector be controlled from the remote control?

The P20 source selector can be controlled from any Hegel system remote control.

Can the Hegel P20 be used with other amplifiers than the Hegel H32?

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 P20 has a very low output impedance and can drive any connected cable and high quality power amplifier. However we recommend you to listen to a combination of a P20 and a H20 or H4SE.

Is the Hegel P20 true balanced?

The P20 is using true electronically balanced circuitry all the way from the inputs to the outputs.
