Hegel is a Norwegian Company which exists since 1988. The products are developed and produced on the company-owned premises.  During my visit to the High End in Munich in 2009 I discovered this manufacturer, I noticed the stand immediately because of the electrical parts which were suspended everywhere.  I asked about the meaning of this parts. Anders Ertzeid explained to me that those electrical parts are an invention of Hegel, the so-called SoundEngine Technology.

The results of this technology are a clean music signal, a bigger dynamic range function and less distortions in comparison with traditional amplifiers. The SoundEngine Technology is used for output stages of preamplifiers and also for CD players.

I had the opportunity to test those products at my place and I found the pronounced musicality and the speed of the basses thanks to extremely high damping factors most remarkable!
