With the H190v, we’ve reached new heights in versatility, offering an array of features including streaming, DAC, headphone output, smart-home integration, and a top-of-the-line MM phono preamplifier.

From wireless streaming to analog vinyl playback, the H190v seamlessly integrates with virtually any audio source, ensuring you can enjoy your music just the way you prefer.

More Music
Hegel has consistently set the benchmark for excellence in integrated amplifier design. Our latest creation, H190v, continues this tradition with an evolution of the classic H190 amplifier. Aptly nicknamed “More Music,” H190v takes our best-selling product of all time to new heights, offering a perfect blend of power, refinement, and versatility. Positioned in the heart of our integrated amplifier lineup, H190v is designed to cater to audiophiles who seek an all-in-one solution without compromise.

Crafted with precision and minimalist elegance, the H190v is housed in a solid steel chassis featuring a thick aluminium front with aluminium knobs. Available in both black and white, the amplifier is designed to complement any interior aesthetic. However, underneath its minimalist exterior, the H190v is packed with advanced features.

Under the hood, H190v packs a formidable punch. With 150 W class AB power in 8 Ohms, a damping factor of 4,000, and a large toroidal transformer paired with high-quality output transistors, this amplifier delivers power and precision in equal measure. A dedicated and improved power supply for the preamp and DAC section creates a pitch-black background ensuring that the focus remains on the music, where every nuance is delivered with precision and control. H190v offers a taste of high-end sophistication at a sensible price point.

By incorporating a state-of-the-art phono preamplifier into H190v, users can connect turntables with MM cartridges directly to the amplifier. The phono input is a scaled-down version of our highly acclaimed V10 phono preamplifier, delivering a detailed, expansive, and powerful sound that breathes new life into any vinyl collection. For those who appreciate a personal listening experience, H190v boasts a 6.3 mm headphone output with a high-quality dedicated headphone amplifier. Capable of driving even the most demanding headphones, this feature ensures that every nuance of your music is faithfully reproduced. The inclusion of a comprehensive list of streaming options further enhances the amplifier’s versatility. With support for AirPlay, Spotify Connect, Roon Ready, and DLNA/UPnP, H190v transforms your space into a hub for seamless music playback.

H190v is highly customizable to ensure it suits any environment. The volume can be limited so that it suits your max volume preference. With our remote-control feature, you can program the amplifier to be commanded by common TV remotes, eliminating the need for using two remotes and making it easier for all household members to get great TV sound. Most inputs can also be set as a fixed high-level Home Theater input, making it easy to combine H190v with surround receivers or multi-room devices. For more advanced users, H190v also features IP control for smart home integration with brands like Control4, Crestron, and Savant. Additionally, it offers a host of inputs and both fixed and variable outputs for connecting external devices, such as subwoofers, providing a customizable audio experience.

Whether you are a vinyl aficionado, a streaming enthusiast, or someone who just appreciates the immersive power of high-fidelity audio, H190v is the perfect companion, delivering an unparalleled listening experience that goes beyond expectations. H190v is more than just an integrated amplifier; it’s a complete audio solution. With a high-end DAC, an exceptional phono stage, a top-tier headphone output, and an array of streaming options, H190v is designed for those who simply crave more music.
