Chord Electronics’ digital filter tech at The Bristol Hi-Fi Show

British digital audio and amplification expert, Chord Electronics, will be demonstrating its advanced digital filter technology at The Bristol Hi-Fi Show 2019.

The Kent-based company will be introducing the myriad sonic benefits of the recently launched Hugo M Scaler standalone upscaler, Hugo TT 2 desktop DAC/preamp/head amp and the partnering TToby stereo power amp.

Based around the company’s ground-breaking proprietary digital coding embedded on a sophisticated FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) chipset, the Hugo M Scaler is a highly advanced upscaler featuring advanced filter technology, one that is capable of redefining the sound quality of digital audio. The Hugo M Scaler upscales standard 44.1kHz digital audio up to 705.6kHz, an impressive 16x CD’s 44.1kHz native resolution. The upscaling performance rises to 768kHz (from 96kHz input data) when used with Chord Electronics’ dual-BNC-input DACs, DAVE, Qutest and the Hugo TT 2.

The British-made electronics will be joined by Bowers and Wilkins’ 805D3 loudspeakers for a remarkable ‘Best of British’ demonstration in Chord Electronics’ primary exhibition space, SS Great Britain 1 Suite.

In addition to the main demonstration suite, Chord Electronics will have a secondary groundfloor site where music lovers can audition the multi-award-winning, British-built Mojo and Poly, the world’s first truly high-resolution wireless portable streamer. Poly’s set-up and configuration App Gofigure, which has recently been made available for Android as well as iOS devices, will be installed on a number of devices for show-goers to discover, with Chord Electronics’ factory team on hand to answer questions and offer advice.
