The overall category win follows two 'Best DAC' awards for the Qutest and Hugo 2 in their respective price categories, Qutest won Best DAC £500-£1,200 and Hugo 2 won Best DAC over £1,200.

Chord Electronics’ dominance of the What Hi-Fi? Awards in recent years is testament to the company’s near 20-year insistence on using proprietary digital technologies and programmable chipsets (FPGAs).

The company’s FPGA-based DACs and DAC/headphone amps are custom coded by Rob Watts, Chord Electronics’ digital designer, and offer class-leading technical and sonic performance, thanks to unrivalled digital audio know-how
