CHORD ELECTRONICS SCOOPS SECOND DAC AWARD IN A ROW

It's champagne time again at Kent UK-based Chord Electronics as its Hugo 2 DAC/Headphone Amplifier has won EISA's DAC award for 2018/19.

The award from the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) acknowledges Hugo 2’s long-established position as one of the world’s most advanced transportable DAC and an international class-leader.

Commenting on the award, Matthew Bartlett, Chord Electronics’ Manufacturing Director told StereoNET:

I’m delighted that EISA’s expert judging panel has once again recognised the technical and sonic superiority of Chord Electronics’ DAC designs. Our pioneering long-term use of powerful, programmable FPGA chipsets, custom-coded by our Digital Design Consultant, Rob Watts, has given our DACs a significant and time-proven advantage over competitor products, the overwhelming majority of which use inferior mass-produced and bog-standard chips.

Bartlett went on to add:

We were thrilled to win EISA’s European USB DAC/headphone amplifier 2016-2017 award for our Mojo DAC/headphone amp, and it is wonderful that the judges have, for a second time, acknowledged the benefits of our proprietary DAC technology, and our commitment to UK design, engineering and manufacturing.

We can agree of course as the Hugo 2, MOJO/Poly, and DAVE feature in a number of our own review team's arsenal of equipment. Congratulations to all at Chord Electronics for another well-deserved accolade.

The Chord Electronics Hugo 2 is available now and sells for £1,800.
