CHORD - TTOBY
The TToby range may be ideally suited to compact living environments, but don’t let that fool you. With similar legendary amplification derived from our SPM range, TToby doesn’t compromise on power or providing you with the purest audio experience possible.
The TToby has been designed to complement our desktop DAC/headphone amplifier, the Hugo TT 2 and shares the same compact form factor as its stablemate. The combination of our 1M-tap digital upscaling device M Scaler, Hugo TT 2 and TToby provides a high-quality hi-fi system, with desktop dimensions and a space-saving footprint. Despite its size, the TToby sets new standards for small amplifiers and takes full advantage of Chord Electronics’ proprietary amplification technology and design know-how.
The addition of TToby, enables owners of the Hugo TT 2 to fully exploit the device as a ‘digital preamp’, effortlessly driving a wide variety of loudspeakers, large or small, in addition to the Hugo TT 2’s headphone prowess. The TToby is a 100-watt design, featuring both an unbalanced and balanced input, to take advantage of the Hugo TT 2’s XLR output.
TToby features two of our famous high-frequency power supplies and benefits from forced air-cooling through the aluminium casework by means of a sonically closed anechoic miniature multi-speed quadruple-fan plenum chamber, enabling the external design to be free of sharp heatsinks and, therefore, carry a stunning aesthetic. The M Scaler/Hugo TT 2/TToby combination offers both class-leading DAC and amplification technology via headphones and loudspeakers, giving complete flexibility within the demands of busy households.
TToby comes equipped with a stereo pair of unbalanced (single-ended) RCA inputs and a stereo pair of balanced XLR inputs. TToby has no ability to switch between the inputs, therefore you must only use one. TToby must be connected to a dedicated preamplifier, or a device capable of attenuating the output. Failure to attenuate the volume before it enters TToby can result in irreversible damage to your hearing, loudspeakers, and will void the warranty.
TToby is a stereo power amplifier that supports a single stereo output - 100w per channel. In order to connect TToby to your loudspeakers you are able to use a pair of banana plug connectors, a pair of spade type connectors, or a raw wire connection. The black negative terminal from TToby to the negative terminal on your loudspeakers, and the red positive terminal from TToby to the positive terminal on your loudspeakers.
