Chord Qutest Asynchronous DAC - due mid April Summary

Replacing the fantastic 2Qute this DAC from Chord gives fantastic sound on both high and mid-end systems.

Get your source quality right with this DAC!

Qutest, which is a winner of many awards is based on Chord award-winning proprietary FPGA technology developed for the class-leading Hugo 2 DAC/headphone amp, giving proven class-leading technical and sonic performance. Perfectly equipped to bring the benefits our digital technology to a wide range of connected devices, it features a galvanically isolated USB-B, optical and coaxial digital input, giving an instant performance upgrade, plus the ability to modernise ageing digital source components.

The Qutest chassis is all-new, too. It has significantly greater mass than its predecessor and has been precision-machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminium billet. The Qutest PCB nestles within a shallow cavity in the solid aluminium chassis, giving the circuit board greater protection within the casework and additional isolation from external vibration compared to previous designs.

Qutest offers Hugo 2s proprietary user-selectable frequency-shaping filters and input selection controls, available via two fascia-mounted spheres, introducing useful flexibility. It also features RCA analogue outputs for connection to integrated amplifiers, preamps and headphone amps, plus high-resolution dual-data digital inputs for connection to future Chord Electronics products.

User-selectable output voltage of 1v, 2v or 3v RMS for flexible connectivity with a wide range of partnering devices.
