World’s first high quality digital Bluetooth music receiver
Turn your cell phone, PC or PDA into a CD quality music player
Introducing the new Chordette Gem from England’s Chord Electronics. The Chordette Gem delivers true high end sound from cell phones, PDAs, PCs and music servers to any hi-fi system – wirelessly or via it’s USB input. The Gem is a derivative of Chord’s new $6,000 ultra high end DAC the QBD76, (center unit next page). The Gem is not as feature rich as the QBD76 but it includes all the same wireless and USB connectivity technology at a consumer friendly $895USD.
Modern phones, PDAs and personal computers now have the ability to transmit high quality audio using the Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile or A2DP for short. Chord engineers worked with the originators of Bluetooth in Finland to design a custom Bluetooth receiver which is able to extract and decrypt the normally unused digital audio signal from any Bluetooth A2DP enabled phone or PDA, or any PC or music server with a USB port, and input this directly into a high quality digital to analog converter.
Chord’s new DACs are the world’s first to use the superior digital output from Bluetooth. Connection is a breeze thanks to a very simple pairing procedure and, with a range of up to 100 feet, you can select your music and control your stereo from your phone, PC, or PDA from anywhere in the home.
