Chord Electronics Releases Qutest Rack System
Chord Electronics has launched a bespoke equipment support for its expanding Qutest range of hi-fi components.
The new, modular, Qutest System Stand from Chord Electronics is precision-engineered to perfectly accommodate the company’s multi-award-winning Qutest DAC, Huei MM/MC phono stage, as well as upcoming products so hints the brand.
Hewn from the same high-quality aircraft-grade aluminium the Kent-based audio specialist is renowned for, the Qutest System Stand is entirely modular enabling tiers to be bought and stacked as devices are added.
The Qutest System Stand has been cleverly engineered using thermal coupling, we are informed. Basically, the stand’s clever design helps to dissipate any heat originating from the electronics being housed. The structure also cossets the units which are lowered into the Qutest System Stand and securely holds them at each end.
Naturally, the stand’s design gives unrestricted access to both the front and rear panels of the devices, as well as allowing unfettered visibility of the polychromatic control spheres.
The base of each tier features a rubber foot at each corner, and each tier’s top surface features four shallow spherical recesses to accommodate additional levels. The Qutest System Stand is entirely produced in Great Britain and is hand-built in the Kent factory. It is available now for $490 per tier in Jett Black and comes pre-assembled and ready to use.
