Scopri Chord Electronics
Chord Electronics first took flight from the aviation world, where engineering without limits means uncompromising standards. This concept designed by company owner John Franks has helped shaped our philosophy since the company’s inception in 1989. Our first amplifiers were supplied to the BBC, followed by world-leading studios including Abbey Road, Sony Music (New York) and later, The Royal Opera House.
Our reputation within the professional world generated demand for a domestic range encompassing the design, engineering and build standards demanded of the finest pro equipment. Today, we apply proprietary technologies to all of our British-made products and proudly deliver studio-grade audio performance across the entire Chord range.
Born out of the uncompromising world of avionics, at Chord Electronics we focus on two main objectives: creating the world’s finest-sounding hi-fi and pushing the boundaries of innovation. We engineer visually unique and sonically stunning designs that defy time.
Introducing our newest range, Mobile. This is our pocketable and truly portable device range with a single modular DAC/headphone amp at its heart, supported by a range of modules and accessories.
Hugo is our most powerful and flexible portable/tabletop DAC/headphone amp range. We've combined elements from our reference DAC technology with the latest battery advances and added a comprehensive input and output selection, to introduce the benefits of a full-size system, but in a convenient and compact chassis.
Qutest is our most compact standalone DAC with unique casework that sets it apart from other Chord ranges. With big-box performance from a bijou package, Qutest is at home both in desktop and home system environments where it brings the very latest digital conversion technology to partnering devices.
The Table Top range merges technological influences from both the multi-award winning Hugo and Choral ranges. It presents class leading products for headphone listeners, along with legendary Chord Electronics amplification performance for users where space is at a premium.
Hi-fi doesn’t have to be plain and ordinary, at least we don’t think so. That’s why we’ve designed a whole product ecosystem with a beautiful industrial aesthetic to suit any environment, from showroom to yacht, home to studio. You can search our full product range below.
For those who demand the power and resolution that only Chord Electronics' components can deliver and need a more design-led aesthetic, the compact Choral range is sure to set hearts racing.
