We test the Hegel H95 on our reference speakers: the Focal Sopra No1. Unfortunately we haven’t had enough time to change during this review. Holidays, hustle and bustle and the relatively short review period were in the way this time. Anyway, we got a good idea and were able to make samples.
We have the Hegel H95 both digital and analog connected. At the analog input, the signal first goes through the Metrum Acoustics Ambre and Metrum Acoustics Pavane. Digitally we use the Coax output from the Metrum Acoustics Ambre. Of course we also streamed via Ethernet to the Hegel. This goes via both UPnP and ROON (Airplay).
Whether Hegel will add Roon-compatibility to the H95, we don’t dare to say. Also for the H390 and H590 it is not there yet. We hope they manage to add it. That would help the company and the users anyway.
