Can I use the USB 5v power supply at the back of my Arcam A39 to power my new Chord Qutest?

I've read its worth experimenting with the supply to my new Qutest but unsure whether or not its safe to try the supply from the back of the Arcam. I believe this was designed for the Arcam separate DACs. Does it have any advantages aside from one less plug in the wall? Thanks

Your Qutest requires a 5volt power supply capable of supplying at least 1 amp.
If the Arcam meets that requirement EDIT: IT DOESN'T (see below)

Thank you both for the input. I won't try it following your advice. Very happy so far with the chord dac. I won't bother doing anything with the power cable yet. Thanks for again
