Buffalo, NY, June 24, 2021—- Bluebird Music, distributor of high-performance audio products since 2000, is pleased to announce the availability of the Questyle M12, an ultrahigh performance mobile headphone amp/DAC.
The M12 features an unmatched level of technical sophistication and sonic performance, utilizing Questyle’s proprietary technologies:
Current Mode Amplification: the patented amplifier module provides high current output, vanishingly low distortion of 0.0003% THD+N, and astonishing signal-noise levels of >119 dB. The extended frequency response and wide dynamic range will bring out the best from any headphone.
Current Mode Amplification: The patented SiP amplifier module provides high current output, vanishingly low distortion of 0.0003% THD and astonishing noise levels of -130 dB. The extended frequency response and wide dynamic range will bring out the best from any headphone.
Smart Impedance Detection: The M12’s smart detection system 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.
Optimized ESS Flagship DAC: 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.
Optimized Compatibility: The M12’s USB-C interface works perfectly with all major operating systems: iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac OS, providing ideal audio and video performance with zero latency.
“Questyle products have always offered incredible performance, terrific value, and unmatched build quality from Foxconn,” said Jay Rein, President of Bluebird Music. “The M12 offers the best sound quality and functionality of any mobile headphone amp/DAC, and at $139 retail in the US, is an unbelievable bargain. We’re excited to offer it.”
