Hi guys,

For my Bluetooth music listening, I've been using a Mass Fidelity Relay DAC which I've thoroughly enjoyed for what it is. Now days, I've stepped up to a Chord 2Qute DAC and Tidal Hi FI.

But...I would like to now use my Mass Fidelity Relay for streaming Bluetooth to my Chord 2Qute.

The Mass Fidelity Relay states that it can output either a Digital or Analog output through the RCA's outputs:

Choose your DAC... Do you have an outboard DAC in your system that you love? No problem; thanks to its unique Uni-fi output stage you have the option of using your outboard DAC with Relay. With a 5 second push of the power button Relay switches the two RCA jacks to output 24 bit S/PDIF digital.* Either with its built-in DAC or an outboard DAC you’ll get the very best possible wireless Bluetooth sound quality
And here is more info on the Relay's digital/analog output, if you click on "Features": https://www.massfidelity.com/products/r ... etooth-dac

My Chord 2Qute has USB, optical, or a co axial input. I'm already using the USB input. Can I somehow convert the RCA output from the Mass Fidelity Relay to an optical or co axial input to plug in to my Chord 2Qute?

It appears that you can. Using a coax cable from either of the RCA outputs into the coax input on the Chord, after using the 5 sec procedure

Thanks for the "Input". :D

Looking further into it, I guess this type of cord would work.

That appears to have a BNC end. You would only need a 75ohm cable with RCA plugs on both ends

Thanks again for the response. If I'm not mistaken, I believe the co axial input on the 2Qute is a BNC style. You'll have to click on "Features" on the link below:

For some reason I had it in my head that RCA's were only for Analog signals. Once you responded, I had an AH HA moment and it clicked. Lol
