Chord Electronics Chord Hugo 2 Portable Headphone Amplifier & DAC Wins EISA Best Product Award 2018

The Chord Hugo 2 Headphone amplifier and DAC is one of the best sounding portable DAC's you can buy today and has just received the prestigious EISA Best DAC award 2018/19.

It can operate as a standalone DAC with an exisiting Hi-Fi system or will enhance any music you listen to by connecting to your PC, phone or tablet to it and adding your favourite pair of headphones.  We would highly recommend you come in and have a listen to a the Chord Electronics Hugo 2 if you haven't yet heard one.

Chord’s original battery-powered DAC/headphone amplifier was a hard act to follow, but the new Hugo 2 is a giant leap forward. Inside its ultra-modern aluminium case is a custom-coded digital converter and filter that sounds like nothing else around. Comfortably able to see off any conventional DAC at its price, it’s astounding for a compact music machine, with a vibrant and rhythmic sound. Whether with standard CD or hi-res PCM or DSD, music comes packed with energy and emotion. The Hugo 2 runs for 14 hours from its rechargeable battery, plays practically every format around, includes switchable filters and a uniquely colourful control interface that makes using it fun.
