Bluebird Music has been appointed Canadian and U.S. distributor of Questyle ultra-high performance personal audio products, including DACs and headphone amplifiers.
Questyle will be the sixth brand distributed by Bluebird, joining AVM (Audio Video Manufaktur) electronics, Jadis vacuum tube electronics, SME tonearms and turntables, and loudspeakers from Vienna Acoustics and Spendor.
“Questyle products feature state-of-the-art technology and terrific sound quality, along with versatility that’s equal to the best studio gear,” says Jay Rein, President of Bluebird Music. “We’ll initially be offering Questyle’s best DAP (digital audio player) and three killer DAC/headphone amps.”
Questyle’s electronics are matched with elegant industrial designs and are precision-manufactured by Foxconn Technology Group.
“Bluebird already carries five incredible lines, and we feel that Questyle’s combination of style, impeccable build-quality, and superb sound make the brand a natural fit for us,” continues Rein. “Adding in the competitive pricing and amazing value that these products offer, we expect Questyle to make quite a mark in our marketplace.”
Questyle’s proprietary technologies include Current Mode Amplification, which uses discrete Class A amplification stages operating in the current mode (rather than the traditional voltage mode), so distortion and noise are reduced to almost-immeasurable levels; pure class A BIAS Control that works in conjunction with Current Mode Amplification, this adjusts the setting of the amplifier’s output stage to match any headphone or loudspeaker load; 5G wireless audio system; and True DSD – no conversion to PCM is used, providing the full DSD signal of SACD playback.
The first four Questyle products to be distributed by Bluebird Music are the CMA 400i compact preamplifier/DAC/headphone amp ($1,069), the CMA Twelve flagship premier/DAC/headphone amp, ($1,999), CMA Twelve Master special edition of the CMA Twelve, ($2,669), and the QPM Music Player handheld unit ($2,669).
Bluebird Music will begin shipping Questyle products to dealers in July 2020.
