2yu is a digital interface that connects to 2go effectively turning the 2go2yu into a full-function standalone music streamer / server.
2yu offers four digital outputs so it can be connected to any DAC or any other device with a digital input, and it can be connected to Chord's own Hugo M Scaler / Hugo TT2 to create a state-of-the-art streaming system.
2yu connects directly to 2go to add TOSLINK optical S/PDIF, coaxial and BNC (both 75 ohms) digital outputs, plus a cleverly integrated USB-A output.
2yu boasts 2,000 MIPS (million instructions per second) of processing power, an integrated sample rate converter, plus a low-jitter audio phase lock loop. Highly flexible in its potential applications, 2go with 2yu is also ideal for installers wishing to create a discreet remote Roon streaming solution: the duo can be wired into an Ethernet port to provide streaming to a system in any room. 2yu alone can also be used with PCs and Macs via USB to create a high-quality USB-to-digital-audio convertor for audio.
Like 2go, 2yu is also hand-made in the UK using aircraft-grade aluminum and the same high-quality manufacturing processes inherent in all Chord Electronics products. Like the Hugo 2, 2yu features four polychromatic spherical controls governing output selection, power, mute and dim functions.
