Hegel HD2 Digital-to-Analog Converter with USB Input

General Information

The Hegel HD2 D/A Converter offers a unique and affordable way to stream high resolution audio from your computer. You can use it between any modern computer and standard audio amplifiers. Or if you have a good sounding, but digitally outdated, DAC or Home Theater receiver, you can upgrade those with the HD2's digital output. It's an easy and affordable solution.

Not only does the HD2 allow you to connect your computer to your audio system, it also significantly improves the sound with Hegel's groundbreaking re-clocking technology. The problem with standard computers is that they send out the digital data in an uneven rate. This is called jitter, and results in a smeared sound with less dynamics and detail. The HD2 incorporates technology that stores the data stream and builds it up again in exactly the correct rhythm, thus reducing the effects of the quality of both the computer and the digital cable.

You simply connect the HD2 to your computer's USB port, and it will automatically install itself as an external USB soundcard. The HD2 will be powered over the USB cable, so there is no need for an external power supply.

Simply Plug & Play
The HD2 has a high resolution 24 bit / 192 kHz D/A Converter inside. It also has the capability to stream high quality 24 bit / 96 kHz audio files over USB. And the HD2 is, like all Hegel soundcards, a Plug & Play unit. No extra drivers are needed. It will automatically work on both PCs and MACs. HD2 uses generic drivers so the computer will immediately recognize it and install it within seconds.

Compatible with Rhapsody®, Spotify® and other music streaming services
Simply connect the HD2 "music streamer" to your computer using the USB soundcard. Music streaming from Rhapsody®, Spotify® or other similar services will now be decoded by the HD2.
