No processing or convenience fees are charged on any EMI transactions.

PLEASE NOTE:

  1. Minimum Order value for EMI eligibility varies from Bank to bank. 
  2. EMI purchases need to be made on a single credit card and cannot be split across multiple cards.

DESCRIPTION

 

High-Quality Sound

With its DSD chipset, you get to directly stream your digital audio without converting it to analogue. This ensures that your music does not lose its quality, which it would otherwise lose, due to the conversion.

 

Pure DAC

Unlike other DACs by Chord Electronics, the Qutest does not have headphone amplification or rechargeable batteries. It is a Pure DAC i.e. a Digital Audio Converter that has been crafted only to offer improved sound quality at home.

4 Digital Inputs

Connect to a wide variety of devices with the Qutest’s 4 digital inputs. These include optical, 2 BNC Coax and USB Type B. The inputs are galvanically isolated to give an instant performance upgrade as well as to modernise ageing digital source components.

 

Connect to a Variety of Devices

The Qutest features RCA analogue outputs and can connect to headphone amps, preamps and integrated amps. It also has hi-res dual-data digital inputs so that you can connect it to future Chord Electronics devices.

Flexibility at its Best

The Qutest lets you select from its four frequency-shaping filters and input selection controls. This can be done via the two fascia-mounted spheres. You can also choose whether you want the output voltage to be 1, 2 or 3 RMS for connecting to a range of devices.

 

Compatibility With Numerous Frequencies

Now you don’t need to worry whether your Qutest will be compatible with your amp. The PCM supports a wide-range of frequencies like 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, 96kHz, 176.4kHz, 192kHz, 358.8kHz, 384kHz, 717.6kHz and 768kHz.

Durable Yet Beautiful

The Qutest sports a show-off-worthy chassis. This all-new chassis has been precision-machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminium for better durability. This casing also offers additional isolation from external vibration.
