Chord Electronics’ Hugo 2 DAC/Headphone Amp EISA DAC 2018/19 Award

Chord Electronics’ Hugo 2 DAC/headphone amplifier has won Europe’s most prestigious DAC award: EISA DAC 2018/19. The award from the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) reflects the pooled experience of EISA’s expert magazines in Europe, the USA, Canada, India, Hong Kong/China, Japan and Australia, and acknowledges Hugo 2 as the world’s most advanced transportable DAC.

Commenting on the definitive EISA DAC 2018/19 award, Matthew Bartlett, Chord Electronics’ Manufacturing Director said, “I’m delighted that EISA’s expert judging panel have 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. 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.”
