Award-winning products from Questyle Audio will be at the Venetian hotel 29th floor suite 317 at CES 2016. You can hear new digital audio products from the innovative creators of the renowned QP1R high-resolution digital audio player, current-mode headphone amplifiers, audiophile wireless components and more.
About Current Mode Technology
Questyle QP1 And QP1R Portable Media Players
The Questyle Audio QP1 & QP1R's support ALAC, APE, FLAC, AIFF, WAV, WMA Lossless up to 24-bit/192kHz and high-Res audio files such as DSD128 and DSD64 playback reveal far much more of the original sound performance of music than that of Mp3 players or smart mobile phones. The Questyle Audio QP1 & QP1R follow the same 3X Clock design of the Questyle Audio CAS192D. The 3X clock USB asynchronous transmission guarantees a more stable and precise operation. The three-clock integrated circuit with FIFO asynchronous structure and three voltage-stabilized power stages ensure accurate sound. With Cirrus Logic flagship DAC (CS4398) chips, the DAPs are able to capture more details hidden within music.
The helm style volume control and the machined aluminum hollowed-out protective crown inspired by a fine watch, against inadvertent volume change, and preventing accidental damage to headphone plugs while carried in a pocket or a case. Another feature is the "Steering Wheel" control for menu, allowing a quick track selection of the QP1 & QP1R.

Questyle Audio CAS192D DAC
Currently the majority of DACs use FIR (finite impulse response) digital filters, but research and testing has shown that our ears are very sensitive to the pre-ring that FIR digital filters add to the impulse wave, making the music sound incoherent and unnatural. The Questyle Audio CAS192D offers the more advanced IIR digital filter, which completely eliminates the pre-ring from the impulse wave producing a more natural sound. During every second of music, there are hundreds of thousands of time operations. Any micro errors will distort the sound. In the Questyle Audio CAS192D, a 3X clock USB asynchronous transmission structure ensures a more accurate operation. To obtain first class sound performance, three correspondence level clocks (custom made in Japan), individually control multiples of 44.1kHz, multiples of 48kHz and USB signal transmission, dedicated for USB asynchronous transmission, reducing Jitter to undetectable levels. A three-clock integrated circuit with FIFO asynchronous architecture and three voltage-stabilized power stages ensure accurate sound.
The sound of WM8741 can be described as classic "English"-style, delivering a soft and exquisite sound. Due to Questyle's high requirements for D/A design, LPF is discarded (per Wolfson ’s suggestion) in the Questyle developed analog output circuit for the WM8741, receiving official praise from Wolfson.
