A Versatile, Affordable MM/MC Phono Stage

The new Huei is a versatile, affordable, high-performance phono stage for anyone looking to upgrade the sound of their turntable.

Chord Electronics Huei Phono PreamplifierThe Huei is based on Chord Electronics’ high-end, award-winning Symphonic MC phono stage. While the Symphonic offered MC compatibility only, the Huei offers both MC and MM compatibility, opening the world of Chord high end analog playback to everyone listening to vinyl.

Like the Symphonic, the Huei offers adjustable gain and loading, ensuring outstanding sonic performance with a wide range of cartridges. Utilizing the same casework and front mounted buttons as Chord’s much loved Qutest, the Huei offers fantastic ease of use – especially convenient for listeners who like to experiment with the gain and loading settings.

Huei features Chord’s first ultra-low-noise microprocessor which controls its main features including a convenient memory function. Huei also offers: unbalanced inputs, both unbalanced and balanced outputs, eight step user selectable gain, 47k Ohms MM impedance, twelve step user selectable MC impedance from 30 – 47k Ohms and a rumble filter.  Like Qutest the Huei is built to last with solid aluminum precision-machined casework.

Available in black, Huei is in stock at dealers now. US retail price is $1,495 and Huei is $1,895 in Canada.

The Chord Symphonic is a killer MC phono preamplifier. It is well worth its asking price. To all those who use MC cartridges in their analog set ups, I highly recommend this phono preamp.
