Hegel Music Systems ROST RRP £2200

Röst is the name of one of Norway's most beautiful islands. Way up north in Lofoten. About as far out from the mainland as you can get. The name fits like a glove. Röst can also mean "voice", and the Röst is truly the "voice of Hegel". With the patented SoundEngine amplifier technology, highly advanced preamplifier and delicately designed D/A-converter, the Röst sounds fluidly natural and dynamic. It preserves all the tiny details that create the feeling of being there, and delivers deep, thundering bass when needed. The Röst easily connects to any device you want - a CD-player, a streamer, a computer or perhaps Google Cast Audio? You can connect your iPhone, Macbook or even an AppleTV using AirPlay. Or maybe integrate a Sonos Connect? The choice is yours. Hegel Röst is designed to make everyday devices sound as good as possible, and to make audiophile devices sound even better. We achieve this using proprietary technology developed in-house by Hegel.

HEGEL IN A NUTSHELL - Each thing can be found in other amps, but NEVER all three together. This is thanks to our patented SoundEngine technology -

1. Damping factor - is basically a description for bass control. The higher the damping factor, the better the bass control. Modern amplifiers typically have lower bass control than they used to have 20 years ago. The reason is that the tools you use to increase damping factor will also increase distortion (next - 2). Not so in a Hegel amplifier. Industry average: 60-80, A really good amp: 100-150, 20 years ago: +/-150, Hegel: 1000-4000 Meaning: Hegel can boogie

2. Distortion - is a description of the level of extra sound that is generated in the amplifier. Meaning sound that is not part of the recording. Distortion usually makes an amplifier sound either muffled or harsh. It will mask the finer details. Modern amps usually have fairly low distortion, and obtain this by sacrificing bass-control (previous - 1). Hegel have among the lowest distortion on the market, and it has it in combination with extremely high bass control. Meaning - it will sound incredibly dynamic, detailed AND smooth.

3. Power consumption - The third benefit of the Sound Engine technology is low power consumption in idle. We are actually using up to 60% less power. Preventing the amplifier of running too hot, and it is good for the environment. The technical term is low bias.


Soundstage reviews Hegel Music Systems new ROST (amp/DAC/streamer/headphone amp) - the new VOICE of Hegel Music Systems

"A good example of the dialectic in action, Hegel Music Systems’ Röst is also a versatile, forward-thinking hi-fi component -- I can’t think of another integrated amplifier with connectivity options that address not only the needs of audiophiles, but also those of the custom-installation market. It looks interesting, it sounds great, and it has AirPlay -- to hear uncompressed music, you need only whip out your iPhone. It would be cool to add Pong to that list of capabilities, but as it stands, I’m satisfied with what the Röst already can do."

The Ear reviews Hegel Music Systems new ROST (amp/DAC/streamer/headphone amp) - the new VOICE of Hegel Music Systems

http://the-ear.net/review-hardware/hege ... lifier-dac

"After just a few moments of listening I had that joyous feeling that here was a competent product, one that enticed me to listen not just for the review purposes but for pleasure. So much so that my intended hour’s listening session turned into a four-hour marathon as I was tempted to discover more of my long-forgotten recordings. That’s probably as much praise as I can give any piece of equipment in all honesty, but to some detail…"

Torque
"Switching genre to the re-mastering of Supertramp’s Live in Paris was no less magical. An enormously wide soundstage ensued with a real boogie-factor from a full but never over-blown bass. This is almost certainly attributable to Hegel’s desire for an incredibly high damping-factor; once the be-all of amplifier design it went out of fashion but ensures the electronics have a real grip on the transducers from its impedance and not simply from power. A useful analogy I’ve heard quoted is the difference between torque and horse-power in combustion engines for creating a record-beating 0-60 figure."


"Winding up the wick to discover that the Hegel will entice the relatively inefficient Harbeth monitors into producing some serious SPLs to fill the room with sound, it’s time to tackle my large Apple music repository. I blast the neighbours by streaming some classics including Genesis, Phil Collins, Queen, The Police and Yello. Wow – not only is it just so easy to use an iPhone or iPad to negotiate the Röst’s controls, be it to change track or volume control, but this is a wholly effortless way to enjoy music. The resultant multi-layered soundstage had not only incredible width but amazing depth. Imaging was among the best I have heard at any price-point, and clearly a class-leader, creating a wholly lifelike performance. People like to hear comment about the speed of a system, well … the Röst is clearly no slouch: swift and punchy are the watchwords here."

"The natural warm-sounding Harbeths seem to really enjoy the partnership whereas some amplifiers seem to provide bass that is overblown and intensely warm. Here, I would suggest, is a really good combo for those seeking reproduction that’s as accurate as possible. I have heard systems played at shows costing ten-times, no a hundred-times the price of the Röst which were not only less pleasing on the ear, but less able to create a meaningful and realistic presentation (steady on! –Ed)."

"The surprising thing is that this is seen as an entry-level product in the Hegel line-up when I would herald it as something of a digital breakthrough. Used every day as my main listening amplification for nearly a month, it seems incredible value for money and a cinch to use. The degree of sonic transparency is to be congratulated while it has the ability to completely involve the listener in the performance. Bass-lines are tight and punchy, the midrange natural and combined with a sweet treble of extreme finesse. It’s almost as if much-more expensive electronics are in use, such is the level of competence it delivers. The name Röst appears to translate most accurately as ‘praised’: there’s no better word to describe it, other than perhaps high-praise. Here is a package from the Norwegians encapsulating modern design, up-to-date functionality and competent electronics."

Hi-Fi Plus magazine (Issue 144 - Alan Sircom) reviews Hegel Music Systems new ROST (amp/DAC/streamer/headphone amp) - the new VOICE of Hegel Music Systems

"I confess I was struggling to find a way of describing Hegel’s Röst without using the ‘audio Swiss Army Knife’ phrase already well in circulation. Jet lag helped and I found the answer at about 4am as I jolted awake in a hotel room in Las Vegas: MacGyver! And I apologise profusely to the people in the adjacent room for shouting ‘MacGyver!’ out loud at 4am (I think they might have thought it was my safe word). But, the Hegel Röst fits that ‘MacGyver’ concept well, although fortunately it’s mercifully free from the late-1980s fashion sense of the original. It really is a ‘do anything’ kind of amplifier that – armed with little more than the tools it comes with out of the box – can work easily with absolutely any music source, and integrates with surprisingly sophisticated home network or home automation systems with equally surprising ease. If you think audio deserves to break free of the Man Cave, or even if you don’t and simply want a damn good amplifier with network benefits, the Hegel Röst is highly recommended."

The Röst is available in a smooth, white, painted, aluminium and steel chassis. Even the knobs are made of solid aluminium, and have the same comfortable touch. Together with the white, slightly dimmed OLED display, this is a unit you would easily have visible in the home. Ready to be used with your speakers or headphones. The Röst comes with a remote control, made from a solid block of aluminium, but is also IP-controllable and may be integrated in most smart-home solutions. If you have experience in writing code, you can get access to the IP-control table and write your own control systems. Note that we do not offer support on that.

The H4SE is an improved version of the H4A MK2. The H4A MK2 was in many ways the very corner stone of the Hegel amplifier range, but the development of the H20 amplifiers disclosed a significant potential for upgrade. The H4SE has received many of the technologies developed for the H20, including the Hegel Next-Gen technology in the input stages. This gives it a smoother, yet at the same time more rhythmic sound compared to its predecessors. Each channel of the H4SE is divided into completely separate voltage gain and current gain stages. The benefit with this design is a higher dynamic range, better pin-pointing of instruments and a wider sound field. The reduction of dynamic distortion all over the audible frequency range together with complete elimination of "transistor sound" makes the H4SE sound smooth and transparent without losing any details. Behind it's confident front panel, the H4SE has extreme power reserves and is capable of powering all known speaker systems. The H4SE can deliver a current output signal of more than 200A.

HEGEL IN A NUTSHELL - Each thing can be found in other amps, but NEVER all three together. This is thanks to our patented SoundEngine technology -

1. Damping factor - is basically a description for bass control. The higher the damping factor, the better the bass control. Modern amplifiers typically have lower bass control than they used to have 20 years ago. The reason is that the tools you use to increase damping factor will also increase distortion (next - 2). Not so in a Hegel amplifier. Industry average: 60-80, A really good amp: 100-150, 20 years ago: +/-150, Hegel: 1000-4000 Meaning: Hegel can boogie

2. Distortion - is a description of the level of extra sound that is generated in the amplifier. Meaning sound that is not part of the recording. Distortion usually makes an amplifier sound either muffled or harsh. It will mask the finer details. Modern amps usually have fairly low distortion, and obtain this by sacrificing bass-control (previous - 1). Hegel have among the lowest distortion on the market, and it has it in combination with extremely high bass control. Meaning - it will sound incredibly dynamic, detailed AND smooth.

3. Power consumption - The third benefit of the Sound Engine technology is low power consumption in idle. We are actually using up to 60% less power. Preventing the amplifier of running too hot, and it is good for the environment. The technical term is low bias.


The H4SE is a dual-mono construction, using Hegel's patented technology in the amplification stages. The H4SE output stages has integrated audio stages and power supplies to be able to deliver an exceptional large dynamic range. The H4SE uses the laser trimmed Hegel SoundEngine amplifier modules in the audio circuits. The power amplifier is very dynamic and will drive the speakers with a deep powerful bass and a very high resolution smooth midrange with a detailed soundstage. The H4SE can be connected to both balanced and unbalanced pre amplifiers, and can be used with both XLR and RCA connectors. The speaker outputs has got two pairs of heavy duty high quality gold plated terminals for both channels.
