  • Essentially a Hugo in a Chordette chassis, the result is a super-DAC with class-leading specification, outstanding technical measurements and proven sonic performance. The 2Qute brings the latest FPGA DAC technology into an affordable home-system-orientated unit. It contains the same high-performance Spartan 6 FPGA that has enabled Hugo to redefine the DAC genre.
  • Chord 2Qute DAC is a super-DAC with class-leading specifications, outstanding technical measurements and proven sonic performance. 12V 0.5A power supply provided that delivers cleaner, clearer, more naturally and unparalleled pure detailed music to headphones, powered speakers, and complete audio systems.
  • The device features a Class 2 USB input which, because of the 2Qute's home-system orientation compared to Hugo's 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.
  • Support for up to 32-bit/384kHz audio via coax and USB, and 24-bit/192kHz via optical. DSD64 supported on all inputs, DSD128 supported via coax or USB input (all via DoP).
  • 2Qute key features: - Coax, optical and USB digital inputs with input switch - Galvanically isolated Class 2 USB input up to 384kHz - Driverless operation on Apple and Android devices; drivers supplied for Windows - Support for up to 32-bit/384kHz audio via coax and USB, and 24-bit/192kHz via optical - DSD64 supported on all inputs, DSD128 supported via coax or USB input (all via DoP) - Source and sample rate indication/illumination - 12V 0.5A power supply provided

Product description

The new 2Qute is a compact, affordable standalone DAC which combines two award-winning products in one: the revolutionary Hugo DAC/headphone amp and the class-leading Qute EX standalone DAC. The new 2Qute takes the technology from What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision's 2014 Best DAC - (Hugo) 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 latest Hugo specification. Essentially a Hugo in a Chordette chassis, it brings the latest FPGA DAC technology into an affordable home-system-orientated unit. 2Qute contains the same high-performance Spartan 6 FPGA that has enabled Hugo 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 Hugo's 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.
