Last week’s Winners

The Westone W80 giveaway is now over! The lucky guy/girl this week is CJ from the USA. You will be contacted very shortly by email (check your spam folder), so make sure to get in touch.

Number 50

As promised and explained earlier, we’ll be doing a year long of weekly giveaways and last September was the start of our 52-week celebration. For this 50th round of the biggest audio giveaway the world has ever seen, we’re giving away the Chord Electronics Qutest DAC!! The Qutest is worth $1.895USD! This famous DAC can become yours and all you have to do is … sign up and leave a comment saying what DAC you use at home.

But first, let’s look at Chord Electronics and the Qutest you can win.

About Chord Electronics

Electronics is an English manufacturer of amplifiers, digital to analogue converters, upscalers and streamers. They have been active for many years already and are best known in our space of audio for their ground-breaking Hugo FPGA loaded DAC and of course for their massively popular Mojo. A cigarette sized DAC/Amp that surpasses every competitor with its incredible performance. Chord Electronics is seated in Kent and has a team of 27 persons in total.

The Chief Designer and Managing Director John Franks has started out in aviation electronics before he later on founded Chord Electronics. According to the interview we did with him last year, he was greatly influenced by that time, because no mistake was allowed without a perfect fix, no workarounds are accepted. This also is the philosophy of Chord Electronics. Don’t accept anything but the very best possible. That is why their designs are considered as segment leaders. Up to today, Chord has brought us a lot of gear which was loved all around the globe. Their Mojo has to be one of the most sold items ever.

A few years into the history of Chord Electronics, John Franks got in touch with Rob Watts, a DAC designer who made far superior products. Rob Watts is responsible for all FPGA DAC/Amps Chord has brought out in the past years. That includes their ultimate DAC – the DAVE, as well as the DAC you can win this week, the Qutest.

The Qutest

From linus’ review:

Qutest. It is built on the programming of their Hugo2, which I personally hold very high and which is one of my favourite products of all. Unlike Hugo2 it is a stationary product though, designed to sit tight in your home-audio chain.

When I received Qutest for review, I knew already it would be small, but I was not prepared for it to be this tiny. Qutest fully lives up to its name with its 16 x 4.1 x 7.2 cm (WHD) dimensions. With 700 Grams the Chord sits firmly on your desk and won’t be pulled backwards by the RCA cables. This is something Chord has changed due to feedback they got from the 2Qute owners in the past.

Qutest does not derive power from an internal battery, it sources juice from a 5V micro USB input. In theory you can hook up a power bank to it to get it away from your noisy mains. Qutest is what Chord describes as a pure DAC. It even says „This is pure audio“ on the packaging. Qutest has no built-in amplifier in it, so it spits out unaltered Voltage via its back-sided RCA’s. Depending on the input sensitivity of your amplifier, you can set the output Voltage of Qutest to 1, 2 or 3 Volts. This is a very welcome feature for me, as my integrated amplifier at home can only handle 2 V at its analogue inputs. Everything above causes it to go nuts with distortion.

Chord Electronics Qutest

Qutest has a tap-length of 49,152 taps and uses a ten element pulse array design, just like Hugo2. It supports sample rates of 32 bit / 768 kHz and native DSD up to 512. It has a measured dynamic range of 124 dB (A weighted) and a channel separation of impressive 138 dB (at 1 kHz, 300 Ohms). What can’t be measured though is the Noise floor modulation, as it is so damn low. Total Harmonic Distortion comes in at 0.0001% (1 kHz, 2.5V RMS, 300 Ohms). The frequency response goes all the way from 20 Hz to 20 kHz.

Qutest has a total of four digital inputs. All are located on the back side of the unit. There is a USB B, one optical and two coaxial (BNC) inputs. The coaxial inputs can be used in dual data mode, so you can also hook up Chord’s Blu Mk2 upscaler and push the tap-length of Qutest even further.

Qutest comes solely in black colour and will set you back 1,895 US Dollars.

You can read the full Qutest review here:

          I’d love to own a Chord! Always loved their sound but could never afford it! Heard their gear this year at the new York headfi show!

          I’m using a old Cambridge dac magic at the moment because I can’t afford the upgrade. Definitely needed tho!

          Thanks and take care!!

            I use a pioneer n-70a as both streamer and DAC.
            I think it is an underrated unit. It’s best to use it with a third party app, rather than pioneer’s buggy app.

          I’ve been using my iPhone as my internet source, but I’ve been looking to upgrade. Chord is at the top of my list. I’m really impressed at how low they got the noise floor.

      The dac I use is on a Klipsch heritage amp which is a sabre chip. While it does everything I want out of dac, it would be nice to add a chord dac to any future amps ;).

    I’m using Khadas Toneboard for desktop and DX120 / ES100 on the go. I’m really limited by having tight budget (still studying in CZ) so I was looking mainly for best bang for the buck gear so far. If I had a chance to win the Qutest, it would change my hifi game entirely 🙂 My dream is to became a audio reviewer and this would help me so much.. There are not a lot of objective reviewers in Europe and I’d like to change that.. Good luck everyone!

    Absolutely love Chord gear. Own a Mojo myself. Not only does Chord stuff sound great, but they are one of the few companies that takes the time to make their gear look like works of art. They are all easy on the eyes. That’s not even to mention the fact that they are one of the companies really pushing audio technology forward. I would LOVE to have this thing on my desk!! Using ZMF Atticus, Senn HD800, HD650, ZMF Classic, and Grado SR80i. <3

    Wow… very nice of you. Congratulations already to the happy winner to be. Have tried quite a few dacs and am using only my favourite of those for quite some while now; the Chord Mojo.
    Listening to it at this very moment in my main setup.
    I’ll keep enjoying it, but if there would be a slight chance to win… man, I don’t even dare to dream of it!
    (And yes, ofcourse I’ve read the part about import taxes. Would LOVE to pay for that.)

    I use my LG V30. After a very long research process under the premisse that I want my setup to be portable, preferably one device and if not to still fit into one larger pocket, it boiled down to this choice. The sound is very resolving, on the dry and slightly unexiting side, with not much warmth – which I actually enjoy as a signature.

    I would love to see and try this beast though. 😉

    The Qutest is on my wish list for a desktop DAC solution. Read online elsewhere
    that Qutest is available in silver and black finishes. I think person who reported Qutest available in silver finish is misinformed, as have never seen one in silver
    anywhere on internet. The black Qutest suits me just fine, as what it does matters more than what finish it has!
