High End Show Munich 2016 - Two New Products Announcedhttp://www.highendsociety.de/index.php/en_high_end_moc.html

Chord Electronics is proud to announce two exciting new amplification products at Munich 2016 - A new partnering amplifier known as TToby, and a new SPM 1050 Mk. 2 stereo power amplifier.

The TToby is an exciting new desktop stereo power amplifier designed to complement the Hugo TT DAC and take advantage of its high-quality digital preamp functionality. The TToby has been created using the same form factor as the Hugo TT and its introduction enables desktop audio lovers to create a high-performance Chord system where space is tight.

The new TToby (£2,750, available August/late summer) will offer Chordís proprietary amplifier technology and deliver 130 watts into a four-ohm load. The Hugo TT and TToby combination, allows music lovers to enjoy the benefits of Chordís class-leading DAC technology via headphones and loudspeakers, giving complete flexibility within busy households. TToby offers both balanced and unbalanced inputs to complement the Hugo TTís outputs, and benefits from Chordís famous switch-mode power supplies.

The new SPM1050MkII is a 200-watt stereo power amp which introduces a raft of internal upgrades, plus a number of aesthetic improvements over its predecessor. The new MkII version, which will be priced at £4,995 and is available now, benefits from reduced output distortion and improvements to capacitance for a bigger, cleaner power delivery.

The new SPM1050MkII uses the latest low-distortion amplifier circuitry and features four proprietary lateral-structure dual-die MOSFETs, enabling the amp to drive a wide range of difficult loudspeaker loads with ease. The MkII version also includes greater isolation on the mains transformer, to reduce interference.

Aesthetic improvements include a new vented aluminium lid, akin to the DSX1000 streamer, plus a new piano-black side panel option over the Integra legs, giving the power amp a fresh, contemporary look.
