2nd paragraph from Chord's home page:
"Born from the highly demanding world of aircraft avionics, Chord Electronics maintains a commitment to exemplary engineering, cutting-edge technology and exceptional build quality. Ingeniously designed for high performance over the long term, Chord products are renowned internationally for their advanced technology which is amongst the best in the world. Since 1996, Chord’s collaboration with Robert Watts, a digital design genius with 30 years’ DAC technology development experience, has produced a number of advanced digital products that are, quite simply, without equal."
I suspect Chord does not develop nor retract "novelty".
If they hold themselves to such acclaim and standards, then so should customers.
I fail to even fathom the connection you are trying to make here about the (exemplary, cutting-edge technology, exceptional, ingenious, advanced, best in the world, without equal) Chord Hugo. So your saying it isn't as it stands with the novel BT capability?
