England's Chord Electronics is an engineering firm with a passion to make the world's best sounding audio products. Chord has developed many highly innovative proprietary technologies which simply cannot be copied. When the very best components available limit performance Chord engineers design their own, thus leading the state-of-the-art.
Building on the success of the Blu and the QBD76, the RED Reference Mk III CD player now has the latest technological updates and has been revised with developments to improve performance even further. The Mk III version includes Chord's High Definition USB input with the ability to process DSD files.
The DSX 1000 is Chord's range-topping network music player. With a full-color screen, remote control and operation via a number of today's uPnP apps for the iPhone/iPad or Android smart phones, the DSX 1000 has been designed to make the best of digitally stored music files. It can play: DSD, MP3; WMA; WAV; AAC; ALAC and FLAC with 24/192 support where possible.
Chord's entry-level Red CD player has been upgraded to include the stunning QBD76 D/A technology. Whereas other CD players use a DAC chip the size of your thumbnail, the QBD76 uses Chord's own ground-breaking discrete component circuitry.
