CHORD Qute EX

The new Chordette Qute EX DAC is an upgraded version of the
multi-award-winning QuteHD DAC: a What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision 'Best
DAC' winner for both 2012 and 2013. The Qute EX, which is available
alongside the QuteHD, now offers both 384kHz PCM and DSD 128 playback
for todays high-resolution DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition) music
files. Forming part of the bijou Chordette range, the new Qute
EX adds an advanced new chipset and motherboard which enables decoding
at up to 384kHz PCM and DSD 128 over USB (against the QuteHDs 192kHz
PCM and DSD 64). Existing QuteHD DACs can be upgraded affordably with
the new chipset and motherboard at the factory. The Qute EX
builds on the strengths of original QuteHD, a compact high-performance
D/A convertor that eschews off-the-shelf DAC chipsets in favour of a
bespoke FPGA (programmable) circuit. Its EX stable mate, with the EX
suffix denoting its DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition) intentions, takes
the Qutes high-resolution file playback capability to a whole new
level. The Qute EX offers a range of bespoke DAC technologies
taken from the flagship QBD76 HDSD, which forms part of our stylish
Choral range, and is the latest edition to our beautiful
high-performance boutique line, Chordette; a comprehensive range that
brings the brands exemplary audio engineering and legendary build
quality to a far more affordable price point. The Qute EX brings
exceptional detail-retrieval, insight and transparency to digital music
files, thanks to its bespoke circuit design created by DAC technology
guru Rob Watts and implemented by our internationally renowned
engineering team.Ready to take advantage of todays advanced
studio-master-quality (DXD) music files, the Qute EX can handle sample
rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz (PCM), allowing users to experience music
in true high definition, along with the best possible reproduction of
CD-quality music. The Qute EX benefits from an advanced asynchronous USB
input (up to 384kHz) and can also bring sparkling clarity to any
connected component with a digital output, thanks to two additional
digital inputs: coaxial and optical. In addition to 384kHz PCM
files, the QuteEX can also process DSD 128 data using the latest
DSD-over-PCM standard (DoP), making it the worlds most affordable
high-quality DSD 128- and 384kHz-compatible USB DAC. Whether using Mac
OS or Windows OS, Chord Electronics own proprietary driver software is
provided, removing the restrictions of current operating system audio
playback.BackgroundRedefining sonic performance in
the affordable DAC category, the Qute EX showcases the unique talents of
Robert Watts, whose state-of-the-art world-class proprietary FPGA
technology lies at the digital heart of the device and allows
capabilities far exceeding that of normal commercial DACs. The
custom-designed FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) incorporates all of
the functions required of a DAC: SPDIF decoding; Isochronous USB timing
and Digital PLL; WTA interpolation filtering; DSD over USB support and
finally, the Pulse Array DAC. The HD USB input benefits from
its own separate FPGA and features asynchronous USB technology,
isolating the digital clocks from the computer. Each sample rate clock
is generated discretely using highly accurate crystal oscillators for
optimum performance and ultra-low jitter performance.The Qute EX
shares the same bomb-proof build quality and stunning aesthetics that
have helped make Chord Electronics famous around the world, and just
like other members of the Chordette range, the QuteEX benefits from a
one-piece aluminium chassis that has been milled from solid billet in
the UK. Complementing the elegant design is a top-mounted porthole
that gives users an intriguing insight into the internal circuitry,
which changes colour with differing incoming sample rates. Exceptional
sound quality has been achieved by our highly accomplished engineering
team, thanks to their world-renowned expertise with D/A conversion and
DAC production. Like all Chordette boutique products, the Qute EX can be
complemented with a matching rack or Chordette Carry case.An
upgraded DAC will also be added to our four-strong Chordette X Series,
replacing the QX DAC. Called the QEX, it will join the IX streamer, TX
headphone amp and SX power amp to complete the X Series which features
squared-off casework and a number of luxurious finishes, including
highly polished gold.
