Questyle CMA12 celebrates 12 years of Questyle products distilled into one brilliant machine!
Questyle CMA Twelve, the new flagship DAC / Headphone Amp from Questyle inherits their classic desktop design format and outperforms its peers once again. It marks the anniversary of Questyle’s revolutionary Current Mode Amplification technology, invented 12 years ago.
Only when you see it will you truly understand the exquisite finish and design detail achieved between Questyle and their manufacturing partner, Foxconn, setting new benchmarks in technological standards. The chassis of the CMA Twelve has very high efficiency for heat dissipation, which ensures it will work with absolute stability in pure Class A, keeping the temperature at 45 degrees.
Mechanical vibration will affect audio signal processing and the resulting sound. To avoid resonance, the CMA Twelve chassis is formed from 10mm-thick aircraft-grade Aluminium 6063, with high precision machining techniques of ±0.02mm.
Questyle CMA 12 is designed with four groups of Current Mode amplifiers, exhibiting forceful driving power and an ultra-low distortion level of a mere 0.0005%. Plus the high-performance BIAS Control System, CMA Twelve will give full performance to your headphone or speaker systems and bring you an exceptional listening experience.
Balanced headphones with a 4.4mm connector are a rising trend with many headphone manufactures including Sennheiser, Audio Technica and Sony, launching products with 4.4mm-connections. CMA Twelve is Questyle’s first device to feature the 4.4mm jack and Questyle is committed to support this growing trend.
