Suzi amplifiers unveiled at HIGH END 2024

Posted on: 07/05/2024

On 9 May, at HIGH END, Munich, Europe’s largest hi -fi show, we will be throwing the covers off our new Suzi amplifiers ahead of the formal launch later in the autumn.

Designed by John Franks, the Suzi concept includes a new preamp, plus an innovative ULTIMA-tech modular power amplifier that can be used to form a conventional pre/power, or used separately with our Hugo 2 DAC or the Hugo 2/2go streamer/player to create a DAC/amplifier or a streaming amplifier.

The Suzi amplifiers concept comprises the new Suzi Pre preamplifier, plus the Suzi power amplifier which also allows the direct integration of the Hugo 2 or Hugo 2 and 2go.

The Suzi concept has three primary use case scenarios: as an analogue pre/power amplifier (a Suzi Pre with a Suzi); a DAC/amplifier (a Suzi with a Hugo 2), plus a streaming amplifier (a Suzi with a Hugo 2 and 2go).

The Suzi system has been conceptualised to offer our customers myriad options while accommodating existing Hugo 2 and Hugo 2/2go owners by offering a purpose-designed ULTIMA-technology amplifier solution with similar space-saving chassis dimensions.

In its most accomplished configuration of a Suzi, Hugo 2 and 2go, the system offers three distinct Chord Electronics’ proprietary audio technologies in one: amplification, digital conversion and streaming. In addition to advanced wi-fi/Ethernet streaming, the flagship arrangement also offers premium solid state library storage and playback, courtesy of 2go’s twin microSD card slots.

Designed, engineered and manufactured in Britain, the Suzi Pre and Suzi will be formally launched in the autumn, where full details, specifications and pricing will be published.
