Hegel C55 - 5 Channel Power Amplifier - Supplied with Rack Mounts


The Hegel C5 series: a multi-channel amplifier that not only prioritises sound performance but also breaks away from the diamond-priced norm. Tailored to your needs and designed to impress, these rack-mountable, configurable power amplifiers deliver up to 5 channels of 150w/pc analog amplifier power, with enough punch to dance with virtually any loudspeaker on the market.

Meet the Hegel C5 series – the most versatile and high-performance multi-channel amplifiers on the market. With three versions to choose from (3-channel, 4-channel, or 5-channel), the C5 series is adaptable to your specific requirements. Whether you're building a 5.1 or Atmos theatre, bi-amping speakers, using active crossovers, or powering multiple speakers in various settings like a mastering studio, restaurant, or home, the C5 series ensures high-performance sound with dynamics and ultra-low distortion.

Hegel C55

Despite its flexibility, the C5 series maintains the distinctive Hegel Sound, utilising the patented SoundEngine2 technology. This technology offers several advantages, including the ability to run low bias, allowing the high-power class A/B amplifier to remain cool and rack-mountable. The high damping factor (more than 2000) ensures deep bass and complete control of bass drivers, contributing to the dynamic Hegel sound. The most crucial benefit is the low distortion, as the SoundEngine2 cancels out distortion elements within the amplifier circuits dynamically, resulting in a spectacular and natural soundstage with smoothness and incredible dynamics.

The versatility of the C5 series goes beyond its channel configurations. Individual phase switching for each channel and the option to select different gain settings for each channel make integration into larger systems seamless. The trigger input and output facilitate easy on/off control, allowing you to place it in a separate room without worry. The C55, standing at 3u tall, comes with massive rackmount ears that are an integral part of the amplifier shell. Adjustable and detachable rear mount ears, along with provided feet in the accessory box, ensure that the C5 series can fit into any application, making it the epitome of a high-performance, flexible, and user-friendly multi-channel amplifier.
