Introducing Chordette

Chordette System - Click for large image.The ultimate mini-system that plays your music your way.

Whether you play your music from a music server, PC, MAC, iPhone, iPod, laptop, cell phone, PDA, or stream it from the Internet, Chordette has an affordable system which will allow you to enjoy your music with astonishingly high fidelity.

The new Chordette series from Englandís Chord Electronics offers you a completely flexible, modular system so you can enjoy your music your way. The system begins with the Chordette Gem, a high quality USB / Bluetooth DAC which lets you easily take music from any digital source directly into your stereo.

If you don't have a stereo, Chordette offers a broad range of components and you can select just the ones you need. Finally, a flexible, modular stand is available so you can display this stunning system at it's best.

Though the size of each component is small nothing has been compromised. The audio response is still state of the art with exceptional performance and low noise levels. Encased in Chord's trademark solid aluminum billet metalwork chassis, the Chordette looks as terrific as it sounds and shows off its industry leading engineering both inside and out.
"The Gem, more so than any other USB DAC I've yet heard, solves the problem of upper midrange/treble edginess and stridency. The Gemís greatest strengths involve the natural warmth of its overall tonal balance, the richness and saturation of its tonal colors, the striking size and three-dimensionality of its soundstages, and its smoothness when navigating complicated material rich in upper midrange/treble transients and details (an area of significant weakness for some USB DACs)."
 - Chris Martens, The Absolute Sound, October 2009.
"To Chord's credit it produced possibly the best Bluetooth audio device available anywhere. Implementing the APT-X Bluetooth codec to separate the Bluetooth men from the Bluetooth boys was a great design decision. The improved sound quality when using APT-X compatible devices should be easily identifiable to even a novice listener. Under the right conditions the Chordette may be the only DAC worth considering."
