Questyle M12 Mobile Headphone Amp/DAC Boasts Low Distortion CMA Amplification Technology

The Questyle M12 mobile headphone amp/DAC, distributed in Canada by Bluebird Music, features ultra-low distortion CMA amplification technology.

The device uses Questyle’s proprietary technologies, including a patented SiP amplifier module that provides high current output, low distortion of 0.0003% THD, and noise levels of 130 dB. The extended frequency response and wide dynamic range can bring out the best from any headphone, says the company.

It also features a smart detection system that measures the headphone’s impedance and automatically sets the gain level to match: low gain for low-impedance/high sensitivity headphones, high gain for high-impedance headphones. LED indicators show which level is in use.

Questyle collaborated with ESS for two years to maximize performance of the ESS ES9281AC DAC chip, able to process PCM up to 32-bit/384 kHz, DSD 256, and decode MQA.

The M12’s USB-C interface works with all major operating systems, including iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac OS.

“Questyle products have always offered incredible performance, terrific value, and unmatched build quality from Foxconn,” says Jay Rein, President of Bluebird Music. “The M12 offers the best sound quality and functionality of any mobile headphone amp/DAC. We’re excited to offer it.”

The Questyle M12 is now available in Canada for an MSRP of $180.
