What is it?
800 represents the top series ot Questyle’s High-end headphone systems, and “P” represents “Pre amp”, Thus from the very beginning, CMABOOP Current Mode Pre-arnp was born with the purified high-end gene of Questyle and is designed just for top tire headphone systems.
Questyle Audio is devoted to the design and manufacture of state of the art high fidelity audio equipment. With its wide range of audio products, including digital music players, headphone amplifiers, Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs), and wireless audiophile amplifier systems, they have conquered the hearts of audiophiles and music lovers. The CMA800P is one of the finest current mode pre-amplifier by Questyle Audio. 800 indicates the top class of headphone systems, P indicates pre-amplifier.
When build a high-end electrostatic ear-speaker system, CAS192D matches with STAX009 electrostatic ear-speaker as audio source. When CMA800P matches with the STAX SR009 system, STAX727 is used as the power amplifier, it is necessary to open the top panel of STAX727 to switch to”DIRECT”mode, and bypass its volume control to avoid dynamic compression.
How does it work?
Even the very best occasionally needs a little help. Presenting the Questyle Audio CMA800P, commissioned by STAX, to bring out the full potential of their Flagship SR-009 electrostatic earspeaker system. All hand made in Japan, and only available on a custom order basis, the pinnacle of the STAX line, the SR-009 provides sound with a natural clarity and exquisite detail demanded by the most discerning of audiophiles, but to bring out their full dynamics, to provide unprecedented deep, articulate and controlled bass, to remove that last bit of haze in the treble, a pre-amp was needed, and STAX felt that only Questyle Audio, had the technological expertise, and the auditory finesse to build it.

High-end audio gear, must prove itself with outstanding sound performance. The Questyle Audio CMA800P’s performance and specification will surprise audiophiles in many aspects: inherent from the patented Questyle Audio “Current Mode Amplification” design, it produces a distortion level as low as 0.00025% THD, linearly across the complete audible spectrum of 20Hz —20kHz, while producing no measurable TIMD. With performance like this, the Questyle Audio CMA800P can easily challenge all pre-amps in current production. Together with the STAX SR-009 system, the Questyle Audio CMA800P awards the user, with a much greater than expected listening experience. Thanks to the Questyle Audio CMA800P & STAX SR-009 system’s high resolution expression capabilities, the bass reproduction cannot be matched by dynamic headphones, and individual instrument pronunciation is clearly displayed without mixing, creating a powerful sound stage, ensuring each instrument has its precise playing position expressed. Have no fear, that high frequencies will be overshadowed, due to the bass performing so well, on the contrary, the high frequencies are greatly improved as well. Listeners will be thrilled at the richness of sound, especially the violin, which is often left thin and anemic on other headphone systems.
