QuteEX + JVC OUTBOARD linear power supply ( improves all aspects of already stellar performance)
This unit is less than a year old and is in excellent condition. It was imported from the UK and comes with a power convertor for US voltage.
The new Chordette QuteEX 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 QuteEX, which is available alongside the QuteHD, now offers both 384kHz PCM and DSD 128 playback for today’s high-resolution DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition) music files.
The QuteEX adds an advanced new chipset and motherboard which enables decoding at up to 384kHz PCM and DSD 128 over USB (against the QuteHD’s 192kHz PCM and DSD 64).
The QuteEX builds on the strengths of original QuteHD, a compact high-performance D/A convertor that eschews off-the-shelf DAC chipsets in favor of a bespoke FPGA (programmable) circuit. Its EX stable mate, with the ‘EX’ suffix denoting its DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition) intentions, takes the Qute’s high-resolution file playback capability to a whole new level.
