Chord Electronics announces a new Phono Pre-amp: The Huei


Chord Electronics has unleashed its 30th-anniversary phono stage to the world in 2019: The Huei. The Huei was first unveiled back in May at the Munich High End Show and marks the first time the British company has added an ultra-low-noise microprocessor controller for controlling its main features.


The Huei shares its form-factor and build with that of the award-winning Chord Qutest DAC. A space-saving chassis milled from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminium and includes Chord's top-mounted viewing bubble where you can admire the beauty and see its inner working through the top viewing window, and of course there's the company's trademark illuminated polychromatic control spheres to cheer things up and bring quick access to the seven-stage switchable gain, rumble filter and impedance settings.


Benefitting from both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil functionality, Huei offers compatibility with a huge range of cartridges thanks to comprehensive gain and impedance-matching options; Huei’s high- and low-gain switching settings are easily accessible via front-panel controls, introducing welcome flexibility. Around the back are balanced (RCA) and unbalanced outputs (XLR) with RCA inputs. A 12V external power supply is also bundled in.


Priced at little on the premium side, the Huei phono preamp comes in a black finish, and is inarguably one of the most beautifully crafted preamps out there.
Despite its Chinese naming, the Huei has been entirely conceived, engineered and manufactured in Britain.


The Huei is expected to start shipping in Summer 2020 and is expected to be roughly priced at 99,990 once it hits Indian shores. Watch this space for more, we’ll keep you posted.
