Where Jaime spends half of his time stationed within the studio, and the other half on location, Jaime demands only the very best digital to analogue converters, which is why he chooses Chord Electronics. He has Hugo TT DAC ready and waiting in the studio control room and listening room to directly feed his monitors, and uses Hugo for when mixing on the move with headphones.
This video explains the technology which is the same for all Chord's DAC range, including; Mojo, 2Qute, Hugo, Hugo 2, and Dave, whereby they use an field programmable gate array rather than a traditional industrial DAC chip. Listen to their digital designer Rob Watts explain it in this short video.
"If you’re looking for the ultimate in portable sound quality, then you can probably stop here – the Chord Mojo has got it nailed."
"The Mojo plugs into your phone or PC, and then into your headphones – and it’s the single best audio upgrade you can buy."
"Exceptional performance, combined with its versatility, make it just about the best all-round headphone amp you can buy."
"Chorg Dave & Hugo TT really is “Best of British” – innovative, perfectly executed and truly world-class.” – Ken Kessler"
"The chord mojo is the best device I’ve found for converting your mobile phone into something akin to a serious music player."
"Mojo can process conventional digital (PCM) up to 32bit resolution and 786kHz sample rate, way above present."
"If you’re looking for the best DAC money can buy, the DAVE is a superb place to start. We haven’t heard anything that sounds so natural or insightful"
"The Hugo TT is yet another terrific DAC from Chord. It sounds fabulous, is well-specified and beautifully made "
