Questyle CMA Fifteen Headphone Amp & DAC

CMA Fifteen Reference Amp & DAC

The new CMA Fifteen commemorates 15 years of Questyle products utilizing Current Mode Amplification (CMA), and takes that technology one step further by directly coupling a Current Mode DAC with CMA. The CMA Fifteen directly feeds the DAC’s current output into four balanced current mode amplification stages, eliminating unnecessary complication, and resulting in sound quality of unrivalled clarity and purity.

The new ESS flagship 9038PRO offers the most powerful performance of any ESS chip to date for stunning resolution and clarity. PCM is processed from 44.1khz-768kHz/32bit; DSD is processed up to DSD 512.

LDAC™ is a new audio technology from Sony that allows you to enjoy high quality wireless audio via Bluetooth. With 3x data transmission rates as compared to traditional Bluetooth, LDAC provides an enhanced wireless listening experience for all your music.

The CMA Fifteen also supports Apple Music Lossless. In addition to the classic USB Type-B input, the CMA Fifteen now also features a USB Type-C input to solve the wire conversion loss through cables. You can finally enjoy the new experience of high resolution lossless audio online, anytime, anywhere.
