100+ Head-Fier
Apr 4, 2014
Offered for sale is a like-new-in-box Chord 2Qute DAC, black in colour. There are no marks or imperfections on the chassis.

Folks this is a giant killer for the price. Do your research and you'll find that the 2Qute creates such a musical and engaging sound that many use it in their stereo 2 channel speaker setup. I personally used in my headphone rig with my HD800s and immediately started hearing things I had not heard with other similarly priced desktop DACs.

Comes with original power supply and all like new in the box.

Asking $795 including free shipping anywhere in US or Canada. Please add 4% if using Paypal to cover fees.

Looking for cash only at this time, no trades please.


Here's some info from the Chord website:

The 2Qute is our entry level ”straight’ DAC (no headphone amp) and is an evolutionary product which has scooped a number of press awards in recent years. The 2Qute is undoubtedly a super-DAC for the modern age and features class-leading specification, outstanding technical measurements and proven sonic performance.

The 2Qute advances our much-loved Qute EX DAC with 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 since its launch. 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 unit 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.
