Chord Electronics TToby has been designed to complement our desktop DAC/headphone amplifier, Chord’s Hugo TT and shares the same compact form factor as its stablemate. The combination of Chord’s Hugo TT and TToby provides a high-quality hi-fi system, with desktop dimensions and a space-saving footprint. Despite its size, the Chord TToby sets new standards for small amplifiers and takes full advantage of Chord Electronics’ proprietary amplification technology and design know-how.
The addition of Chord’s TToby, enables owners of the Hugo TT to fully exploit the device as a ‘digital preamp’, effortlessly driving a wide variety of loudspeakers, large or small, in addition to the Chord Hugo TT’s headphone prowess. Chord’s TToby is a 100-watt design, featuring both an unbalanced and balanced input, to take advantage of the Hugo TT’s XLR output.
Chord Electronics TToby features two of our famous high-frequency power supplies and benefits from forced air-cooling through the aluminium casework by means of a sonically closed anechoic miniature multi-speed quadruple-fan plenum chamber, enabling the external design to be free of sharp heatsinks and, therefore, carry a stunning aesthetic. The Chord Hugo TT/TToby combination offers both class-leading DAC and amplification technology via headphones and loudspeakers, giving complete flexibility within the demands of busy households.
