-Chord Electronics 2Qute DAC

A compact and inexpensive standalone DAC, the Chord Electronics 2Qute DAC combines the revolutionary Hugo DAC/headphone amp and the Qute EX standalone DAC. It offers class leading specifications, outstanding technical innovations and offers a class-leading audio performance. The 2Qute is two award-winning products combined into one to bring you the ultimate listening pleasure.

Made with the same high-performance Spartan 6 FPGA as Hugo, the 2Qute incorporates the latest FPGA DAC technology into an inexpensive home unit. It offers distortion levels as low as 0.0003% and offers crystal quality sound output.

With support for up to 32-bit / 384 kHz audio via coaxial cable and USB, and 24-bit / 192 kHz over optical cable, the 2Qute can play all the loss and lossless formats. It also supports DSD64 on all inputs and DSD128 via coax or USB. Switch easily between coax, optical and USB digital inputs using a handy little switch on the DAC and enjoy all your music from different sources in studio-quality.

The class 2 USB input has been galvanically isolated (isolating sections of electrical equipment to prevent current flow) for greater audio performance, using an innovative technique which allows for very high data rates of up to 384 kHz. With driverless input support on Apple and Android devices, ASIO drivers for Windows devices, it is compatible with the most high-end smartphones, tablets and other portable players, offering full functionality.
