Chord Electronics' Anni Desktop Integrated Amplifier Drives Headphones and Compact Speakers, Utilizing Innovative Error-Correction Technology To Deliver Amazing Sound
Chord Electronics' Anni Desktop Integrated Amplifier is small yet powerful, capable of driving both headphones and compact loudspeakers. Anni benefits from Chord Electronics' proprietary ULTIMA circuit topology and is perfectly positioned to exploit the full potential of today's high-performance headphones, desktop monitors, and high-resolution audio sources.
The Anni desktop integrated amplifier forms part of the Qutest range and seamlessly complements the resolving abilities of the multi-award-winning Qutest standalone DAC and Huei phono stage. As a system, the Qutest components provide an unrivaled desktop audio solution, offering class-leading digital and analogue technologies for the modern music lover. The company's compact QSS (Qutest Stand System) modular equipment rack provides the perfect support, too.
Anni offers the recently announced dual-feed-forward error-correction circuit topology whether using headphones or compact loudspeakers. Anni's advanced technology allows it to drive any headphone load, error-monitored and compensated amplification at all times.
Benefiting from both 3.5mm headphone outputs and 1/4" (6.35 mm) outputs, so two can listen simultaneously, plus 4mm banana-type loudspeaker outputs, Anni delivers 10 watts of quality ULTIMA amplification, controlled by a fascia-mounted volume control that also doubles as an input selector switch for Anni's two line-level inputs. A two-stage gain control for loudspeakers provides additional flexibility with a wide range of desktop monitors.
Like all Music Direct products, this excellent amplifier comes with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
