The 2Qute offers you the ability to listen to music from your computer, coaxial or optical source and deliver it with better quality to your hifi system. The 2Qute is an amalgamation of 2 outstanding products and offers superb value for money for those wanting to enhance their music listening experience.
The new 2Qute takes the technology from What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision’s 2014 Best DAC £1,000+ and adds it to What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision’s 2014 Best DAC £700-£1,000 (Qute EX). The result is a new super-DAC for 2015 with class-leading specification, outstanding technical measurements and proven sonic performance.
2Qute advances the award-winning Qute EX DAC into 2015 with the specification.
Bringing the latest FPGA DAC technology into an affordable home-system-orientated unit. 2Qute contains the high-performance Spartan 6 FPGA that has enabled other Chord DACs to redefine the DAC genre in 2014. The 2Qute also boasts astonishingly low distortion levels of 0.0003%.
The 2Qute offers support for up to 32-bit/384kHz audio via coax and USB, and 24-bit/192kHz over optical. DSD64 is supported on all inputs and DSD128 is supported via coax or USB (all via DoP). The new DAC also gains a handy switch to easily move between coax, optical and USB digital inputs.
The device features a Class 2 USB input which, because of the 2Qute’s home-system orientation compared to more mobile aspirations, has been galvanically isolated for greater sonic performance. This has been achieved using a novel technique which allows for very high data rates of up to 384kHz; the input is driverless on Apple and Android devices, with (ASIO included) drivers for Windows devices.
