Chord Electronics 30th Anniversary

Great Britain's Chord Electronics, the world-leading digital audio conversion and amplification specialist, will be making its NAMM show debut this month as it celebrates 30 years of UK audio equipment manufacturing in both the consumer and Pro Audio worlds.

Based in Kent, England, the British company will be bringing several of its multi-award-winning studio-proven DAC/headphone amplifiers to NAMM, with the company's senior team, including Owner, MD and Chief Designer, John Franks, in attendance.

The company, which has exclusively designed, engineered and manufactured in Great Britain since its formation in 1989, produces a range of proprietary-technology high-performance digital and analogue audio products, which are active in a number of leading studios and production facilities around the world, including Abbey Road, Metropolis Studios, Air Studios and Sony Music.

Chord Electronics' booth (#10627) will feature many critically acclaimed devices: the portable Mojo DAC/headphone amplifier (£399), transportable Hugo 2 DAC/headphone amp/preamp (£1,800) and the recently launched desktop Hugo TT2 DAC/headphone amp/preamp (£3,996).

Chord Electronics is widely known for its class-leading proprietary technology in both its DACs and amplifiers. Its unique ultra-high-frequency power supply technology, developed from avionics, was conceived in the mid-1980s and then evolved into a well-received amplifier; the BBC becoming its first ever customer for a qualified outside broadcast unit.

Today, the company offers four dedicated Pro Audio amplifiers in addition to a wide range of domestic stereo and mono solutions.

The company's proprietary DAC technology, developed over more than two decades by its Digital Design Consultant, is arguably the most of advanced of its kind in the world and uses custom-coded FPGAs to deliver unrivalled resolution in a low-distortion environment, making it desirable for both domestic and professional use. Chord Electronics' DACs continue to dominate hi-fi's most prominent awards event.
