Chord Electronics has launched its first-ever small desktop integrated amplifier, the Chord Anni.

Chord Anni is capable of driving both headphones and compact loudspeakers.

The Qutest-sized Chord Anni benefits from the company’s proprietary ULTIMA circuit topology and is designed to exploit the full potential of today’s high-performance headphones, desktop monitors and high-resolution audio sources.

CHORD QUTEST

The new Anni desktop integrated amplifier forms part of the Qutest range and complements the Qutest standalone DAC and Huei phono stage. The company’s compact QSS (Qutest Stand System) modular equipment rack provides the perfect support, too.

CHORD ANNI

Anni offers Chord Electronics’ recently announced dual-feed-forward error-correction circuit topology whether using headphones or compact loudspeakers. Anni’s advanced technology allows it to drive any headphone load, with error-monitored and compensated amplification at all times.

Benefitting from both 3.5 mm headphone outputs and ¼-inch (6.35 mm) outputs, so two can listen simultaneously, plus 4 mm banana-type loudspeaker outputs, Anni delivers 10 watts of Chord Electronics ULTIMA amplification, controlled by a fascia-mounted volume control that also doubles as an input selector switch for Anni’s two line-level inputs. A two-stage gain control for loudspeakers provides additional flexibility with a wide range of desktop monitors.

ALUMINIUM CASEWORK

Anni benefits from the same UK-made precision CNC-machined high-grade aluminium casework common to all Chord Electronics’ products, and is entirely designed, engineered and built in the UK. The company’s trademark polychromatic control spheres govern the power and gain controls, complementing the fascia-mounted volume control/input selector.

HiFi Pig Says: The Chord Anni looks like a good option for fans of the British brand’s bigger amplifiers, but with space at a premium. Anni should appeal to both Chord’s classic HiFi and Headfi customers alike.
