Review: Hegel V10
Hegel's first phono amplifier is a winner
It's a mystery why Hegel has not done this before. Their first phono preamp succeeds on all essential points.
Excellent dynamic contrast, powerful deep bass and great detail in the soundscape. Low noise even at max gain.
Adaptation with dip switches can be demanding to master, and the tight direction in the soundscape will not appeal to everyone.
