Modern computers are not actually designed to sound good. They are designed for speed and versatility. Their inexpensive power supplies create a lot of digital noise that is outputted along with the data flow. In addition, the poor quality of their clocking system creates jitter when processing music in real time. The Hegel SUPER uses proprietary technology that dramatically reduces the noise and jitter.
The different headphones on the market have very diverse impedances making life difficult for an amplifier. The result is that a normal headphone amplifier will act as an equalizer and sound significantly different, depending on which headphone you connect. Hegel’s Reference amplifier technology ensures that the SUPER plays with exactly the same sound signature on all headphones, which is to say no signature.
