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
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.
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
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."
