    Chord Electronics Qutest DAC - Official Thread

    I hadn't gotten around to trying the different voltage settings till now. I set it to 3v and it works so much better in my system, now I am not going over 12 oclock on my preamp and seems to have more impact. I love the various settings on the Qutest!!

    Chord Electronics Qutest DAC - Official Thread

    I felt the 650's were horribly veiled, I picked up Wywire Red cable and solved the problem. That 650 cable is definitely a bottleneck!

I feel like what i've read many times the phones had a rather veiled presentation, the new cable just really opened them up...
