I have an H-80 driving Paradigm Prestige 95fs. I like it a lot. It plays like it has twice the rated power and is fairly compact. I compared it to a NuPrime IDA-8 in my system. The IDA-8 is also phenomenal for the money. They were equal in terms of grunt, sound stage, and smoothness, but the H-80 just had a more tube like tonality,and bass control (I have PrimaLuna gear too). With an eye to the future, the H-80 has great source connectivity- 5 digital inputs, plus 3 analogue inputs (two RCA unbalanced, 1 balanced XLR), which opens up more options (especially if you are using a phono preamp/table combo and want to add a DAC). To clarify, IMHO the DAC in the H80 is as good as anything built-in an integrated at any where close to this price point, (maybe even $ X 2), HOWEVER, as digital continues to evolve, I just see digital processing as the area of most rapid improvement for audio in general, (MQA?). My H-80 also has a set of pre-outs, not mentioned in anything I've seen published by the company or reviewers, (including the owner's manual)-puzzling! I emailed the people at Hegel who responded, after some delay, that the pre-outs were indeed, capable of mating with an external amp- bonus versatility.
