Quad ERA-1 Headphones
The Quad ERA-1 incorporates an ultra-thin, electrically active diaphragm which is extremely thin, but yet just as strong and as highly elastic, weighing less than the air it displaces. This is fused with a precisely arranged magnet array, designed to maximise sensitivity and consistency of the applied force over the driver area.
Quad has invented a nonlinear vibration dampening technology which allows the driver to offer an effortless but a pure dynamic frequency response for perfect clarity and an engaging sound. The ERA 1's are supplied with 2 pairs of different earpads, made out of genuine leather and synthetic leather, for slightly different acoustics; what Quad has done is tuned these headphones to match their evolutionary famous ESL range of loudspeakers.
Chord Electronics Mojo Mobile DAC/Headphone Amp
Chord is one of the reigning digital electronics manufacturers around today, having claimed vast numbers of awards and glowing reviews from across the board in relation to a huge range of their products. One of the biggest success stories of Chord Electronics' recent feats is the exquisite Hugo portable DAC and headphone amp. The latest release, the Mojo sees the same level of care and attention as found with the Hugo, as well as the trickle-down technology of the device into a smaller, more compact and more price accessible entity.
Designed and built here in the UK, Mojo brings a true hifi-grade performance to your pocket, as the ultimate and truly portable DAC/headphone amplifier. Within the Mojo's unobtrusive cabinet is a hugely powerful headphone amp, designed to power even the most demanding of cans to an uncompromising level of quality. The DAC tech will play essentially any audio file format that you may have, all the way up to 768kHz 32-bit, and quad DSD 256
Mojo makes use of Li-Po technology, which means that only four hours on charge will deliver between eight and ten hours of continuous use. The Mojo is the missing link between the emotion and magic of your favourite songs and the brilliant headphones that help portray them.
Chord Electronics Poly Wireless Module - Not included with the package unless specified (+£499).
The Poly is a new and revolutionary accessory for the company's highly acclaimed portable headphone amp/DAC, the Mojo. Designed as a high resolution streaming module, the Poly is built around the concept of condensing a high-level PC with a data server, DLNA server, WiFi hub, Bluetooth streamer and an SD card reader/player, all run with and tied together by quality software.
The Poly will stream over both WiFi and apt X lossless Bluetooth. This means music is accessible over wifi networked boxes such as PC computers or network storage drives (NAS). AirPlay is amongst the available wifi options and the Bluetooth capability means that both Apple and Android devices are readily compatible with the Poly module. SD inputs on the Poly allow for direct local playback without compromise or the requirement for wifi or Bluetooth connection. With digital memory now far more accessible than ever before, larger SD cards can take a large multitude of high-resolution audio and store it within the Poly.
The Poly's highly intelligent software and the Mojo's formidable DAC chipset mean that these high res files can be in any PCM format of your choosing, whether it be lossless WAV or ALAC, all the way through to studio-grade DSD64 or DSD512. Basic MP3, WMA, etc are of course also supported. This storage capability means that you're able to free up space on your mobile phone for important images, videos and apps and leave the music storage entirely to the Poly.
The Poly features a quality rechargeable Lipo battery, offering up to nine hours of continuous playback from a four-hour charge. Both Mojo and Poly can be charged at the same time.
