We Now Have The Chord Qutest On Demo & In Stock...


Chord Electronics launched the most advanced compact DAC on the planet @ CES, Las Vegas recently.

Called the Qutest, it is a highly accomplished standalone device, based on the latest proprietary Chord FPGA technology developed for the class-leading Hugo 2 DAC/headphone amp.

Qutest uses an all-new precision-machined aluminium chassis and includes several new features, including fascia controls.

Qutest is the latest evolution of Chord Electronics’ most affordable standalone DAC, the multi-award-winning 2Qute, which it directly replaces. It features a galvanically isolated USB-B, optical and dual coaxial digital inputs, giving an instant upgrade to digital audio devices.

Qutest offers support for up to 32-bit/768kHz PCM & DSD512 via USB-B, 24-bit/384kHz PCM & DSD128 via coaxial (BNC) and 24-bit/192kHz data on optical TOSLink.

The Qutest chassis is all-new too, being precision-machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminium billet. A further new feature is a user-selectable output voltage for more flexible connectivity with partnering devices.

The latest FPGA and advanced WTA (Watts Transient Aligned) filters have also been implemented in the Qutest, along with user-selectable filtering option.

Now available for demo and in stock - call or email for more information.
