Hegel P20 Pre-Amplifier

$3,500.00

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 an easy task. 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 Hegel P20 Preamplifier



The P20 comes with a high-quality system remote control, milled out of one solid piece of aluminum. It has the same bead blasted and anodized surface finish as the preamplifier itself. You can really feel the quality of 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.



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