CHORD ELECTRONICS HUGO M SCALER, DAVE DAC AND ETUDE AMP AT NORTH WEST AUDIO SHOW

Kent-based audio specialist, Chord Electronics, will be demonstrating its latest digital front end, the new Hugo M Scaler (upscaler) and DAVE DAC/pre/headphone amp, at The North West Audio Show 2019.

The latest-technology digital source component will be complemented by the recently introduced Etude stereo power amps.

Chord Etude

A combination that will offer a taste of the company’s latest analogue technology featuring Chord Electronics’ new Dual Feed Forward amplifier topology which also marks the company’s first all-new amp circuit since its inception in 1989.

Chord Hugo M Scaler

The Hugo M Scaler and DAVE DAC combination is capable of upscaling standard 44.1kHz audio to 705.6kHz (or 768kHz from a 96kHz input signal), an incredible 16x the resolution of a standard CD, thanks to Chord Electronics’ biggest-ever tap-length filter, which has for the first time, broken the 1,000,000-tap barrier. Roy Castle would be proud (I think you might need to be British and of a certain age for that one)!

Chord DAVE

The compact high-resolution system will be plugged into KEF R11 speakers from the fellow Maidstonian brand. Not a bad showing of British hi-fi, we think you will agree.

Price and availability

Hugo M Scaler £3,495; DAVE £8,499; Etude £3,900.

All are available now.
