Chord Electronics Chordette Toucan headphone amplifier

High quality audio-playback manufacturers Chord Electronics have designed the Chordette Toucan to add the option of utilising headphones to listen to music from both analogue and digitally streamed music sources. 

Private listening should not mean compromising on sound definition, quality or clarity. The Toucan's gold-plated RCA phono inputs and true-balanced XLR inputs enable analogue sources to be played through the unit, while the two headphone jack sockets on the front of the unit allow two people to listen to the same music at once. 

The Toucan also utilises a USB port, meaning that the unit can be connected to your personal computer with ease and will playback audio at a music high quality than would normally be delivered from your computer's standard headphone socket. Music played from computer to Toucan is digitally decoded by the unit, and then upscales and converted in to a high fidelity signal for playback. 

The listening experience has also been enhanced by adding the option of a cross-feed network filter. When this option is selected, the Toucan will provide a spatial effect to give the sensation as though the music has moved outside of your head, and is playing in the room around you. This means the overall experience has a more highly advanced sound-stage and feels as though the artist is performing next to you - for your own entertainment.
