Indigo Universal Pre Amplifier /
The Indigo is the very latest in Chord's digital product
development. It was designed to be a universal control center for both
digital and analog sources. Indigo takes Chord's most advanced pre amp,
D/A conversion and wireless technology and combines it all into one
convenient full sized ultimate product.
The name Indigo was chosen to follow our two other products, Blu and Red
and as Indigo is the highest frequency in the visible spectrum, it
denotes the extreme complexity and advanced nature of this new product.
The Indigo includes a revolutionary digital iPod dock with wireless
input and is supplied with a modified digital iPod Classic. Thus a
true digital signal can be feed directly into the Indigo's DAC
circuitry. This can at last turn the iPod into a true, high end music
source, providing uncompressed music files are used.
Using the supplied adapter, and the included modified iPod, you can send
a true digital signal from your iPod to the Indigo from anywhere in a
room. Thus you can sit in your chair and control your stereo with the
iPod in your hand.
For unmodified iPods a standard high quality A2DP radio dongle is
provided which allows any iPod to be played through the Indigo. Of
course the Indigo also works with music servers, PCs, PDAs, cell phones
and other wireless devices just as the QBD76 does.
Key Indigo features include:
- QBD76 D/A conversion
- SPDIF, AES, optical, USB, digital Bluetooth and iPod digital inputs
- Digital and analog connection and charging for iPod
- Transfer music files via USB input from your computer to your iPod
- Balanced and unbalanced analog inputs, both line level and volume

- Pre amp section based on Chord's CPA 5000, (their most advanced pre
The Indigo is available now and ships with a modified iPod Classic and
