Inside Chord Studios

 

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.
