Founded in 1989 Chord electronics is the brainchild of its chief engineer John Franks.
Using knowledge from his year of working in the avionics industry and a deep knowledge of power supplies, Frank
applied this knowledge to his second love, Hifi.
His idea's and concepts for power supplies quickly gain Chord products recognition from giants such as BBC, Sony and Skywalker Sound.
His innovative approach yields stunning results and can be heard thought the Chord range of products.
Amplification may have been Chord's starting point but with the technical knowhow that fellow engineer Rob Watts bought to the table, Chord
is now a byword of class-leading with DAC's (Digital to Analogue Convertors). Using proprietary FPGA technology Chord DAC's can decode more
accurately than most other DAC's on the market, meaning they deliver the very best in sound quality.
Talking of quality, almost all Chord products are made from Aircraft Grade precision-machined Aluminium, from a distance they look impressive, close up the
quality shines through!
Chord products are designed, engineered and built here in the UK, with components sourced as locally as possible to the factory in Kent.
