Chord Electronics pay as much attention to the styling of their products as they do their award winning sound quality. This is extremely obvious with the release of Huei, their new Moving Magnet/Moving Coil Phono Stage.
Sharing the same sleek chassis as their performance setting Qutest DAC, the Huei is an excellent upgrade for any Turntable, being totally configurable for any cartridge.
Huei’s advanced design offers (for the first time in a Chord Electronics phono preamp) ultra-low-noise microprocessor control of its main features, including a convenient memory function. With multiple options for impedance-matching, seven-stage switchable gain and a switchable rumble filter, Huei’s design offers comprehensive compatibility.
Precision-machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminium billet, Huei has a similar form factor to the company’s Qutest DAC and also offers a top-mounted viewing window into the illuminated electronics within. The design also shares the same polychromatic control spheres the company has become known for in its digital products. The illuminated front-panel spheres offer direct access to Huei’s gain and impedance settings, selection for MM/MC cartridges and access to the on-board rumble filter.
Huei is a stylish, practical and high-performance solution for integrating turntables into Chord Electronics’ (and other) systems and features both unbalanced (RCA) and balanced outputs (XLR) with RCA inputs. A high-quality 12V external power supply is also supplied.
Huei is settling in to it’s new home in the Rayleigh Store demo room. Pop in for a listen!
