Both players are presented in an elegant champagne gold or space gray aluminum trimmed and glass finish, with a simple and intuitive GUI interface. This together with the analog-like qualities of True DSD, they offer a whole new listening experience for just about any headphone.
Perfect for both the studio and home, Questyle Audio’s CMA800R Headphone Amplifier offers their patented Current Mode Amplification technology, providing an accuracy, airiness and musicality as yet unachievable with conventional amplification, and further redefines the state of the art by being the first headphone amplifier supporting a Dual Mono Full Balanced configuration. While in full balance mode, distortion levels drop to less than 0.00026% making the CMA800R a force to be reckoned with in terms of design and performance. The CMA800R includes balanced XLR and RCA inputs/outputs to let you hear music as never before. CMA800R is available now for only $1,999.
Also utilizing the patented current mode headphone amplification technology is the Questyle Audio Q192 Desktop DAC with Headphone Amplifier. The Q192’s USB port adopts a unique 3X Clock structure, ensuring the DAC obtains first class sound performance by reducing jitter to undetectable levels. Apart from USB input, Q192 is also equipped with standard coaxial input and output; all supporting 24bit/192KHz transmission. Q192 is available now for $799.

An evolution in wireless audio, Questyle Audio’s innovatively designed 5G wireless amplification system sends audio signals in the 5.2GHz/5.8GHz frequency, wonderfully avoiding the 2.4GHz frequency range and achieving the most stable transmission. The series includes three models: the T2 Transmitter, R100 (2x50W Stereo) Wireless Amplifier and R200 (200W Mono) Wireless Amplifier. The T2 Transmitter integrates a control preamp, with a 5GHz wireless transmitter, and includes a 24bit Analog to Digital converter for the analog input, and is able to support up to 8 receivers. The R100 wireless amplifier is a built-in integration of wireless receiver, DAC and amplifier, an extremely advanced combo that can easily drive a pair of bookshelf speakers. The R200 wireless amplifier is a 200W Mono block that integrates a wireless receiver, DAC and ICEpower amplifier. Two R200 amplifiers can share one T2 transmitter and with its 20A current output capacity, the unit can easily drive high-end power consuming speaker systems. R100, R200, T2 and R2 are available now for $999.00 each component respectively, or $3,000.00 for a pair of R200’s or R100’s and a T2 Transmitter/Preamp all packaged neatly in a durable Aluminum road case.
