Ex Demo Chord Indigo pre-amp DAC with integrated ipod dock. Purpose made by Apple, the ipod is enabled to stream music directly from the hard drive. The Indigo also offers stereo transmission via bluetooth. The unit is totally MINT hardly used condition, including the Sarum cables, original manual and packaging. Note: The CPA 5000 and CD player seen in the photos is not included in this sale.
I bought this unit around four years ago. It was being used as a demonstration unit at Custom Electronic Design. it was only ever used for a few demo’s. I also bought the CHORD RED REFERENCE MKII CD player and two CHORD power amplifiers and a CHORD CPA 5000 Pre-amplifer. The whole system was cabled with CHORD “SARUM” tuned array cables. The INDIGO has never been used by me and is now for sale.
The DAC in the Indigo is the Chord “reference” unit, amazing sound. Please refer to the What Hi Fi review for details. Here is an extract from their review:-
“Rarely has CD sounded so good. As expected, the design’s general sonic characteristics haven’t changed, but the latest iteration is clearly superior. It’s a phenomenally fluid-sounding circuit that makes CDs sound as natural and unforced as we’ve heard.
Resolution is exceptional, as is bass power and punch. In our experience, rarely has digital, and compact disc in particular, sounded so good.
No matter what type of music you play or what digital source you feed into the Indigo’s DAC, we have no doubt you’ll hear more of the music through this than just about any alternative, no matter how much more it may cost.
Price-tag aside, this is a product everyone interested in quality hi-fi sound should celebrate.”
