Release date or availability for purchase? U.S. dealers?
I do not know when official release is, but I DO know that we will be selling the QP2R when it gets released. We are an authorized dealer of Questyle in the US, and an official sponsor of Headfi!
(If you check our youtube video you will see a video of me talking about the Questyle CMA
600i). We are looking forward to the release like everyone else . I'll update on here if I hear anything new as well.
Yep! I regret not getting on this thread sooner... I knew about it but out of sight out of mind until as of late... Mark (owner) and I were talking about it, and he was excited for it. The light bulb then went off ha.
June 2017! Yeah.
I'm hoping somebody can help me out with a little technical info on the QP2R. I've seen images of a dock/charging cradle for the QP2R labelled with SPDIF output to speakers. I'm puzzled by this. The QP1R's TOSLINK was from the 3.5mm LO at the top of the device. The QP2R only has one 3.5 mm jack at the top (the other now being the 2.5 mm balanced output). I presume the one remaining 3.5 mm socket on the QP2R now takes the role of HO, LO and TOSLINK out? (Be careful when switching back to earphones if you've been using LO on max-output!)
My question is about the bottom (USB-C) connector. Why would this have been labeled SPDIF-out? Can the QP2R do digital-out via its USB-C port??
We got our pre order page up for the QP2R!
QP2R PRE ORDER MTME
Feel free to check it out if your interested. We have heard excellent things about it from Bruce Bal
Hopefully it will be at the Pittsburgh meet to audition. I would like to hear the difference between that and the QP1R.
All depends on how many we get in from the launch. For instance we have one last Hugo 2 from the pre order, so that will be probably be sold soon before we keep it for a demo. Not sure how many QP2R's we are getting , but we will see! Would love to compare them as well
Yes it would be nice to side by side them.
This thing looks solid. I will try to listen to this one asap.
Hey guys - just posted some initial impressions of the QP2R on the link below if anyone is interested:
A full write-up will follow in a few weeks, but this should hopefully give a little flavour of what to expect from the new unit.
Spoiler: they fixed the scroll wheel!
Spoiler 2: it sounds pretty damn good.
If you still have the QP2R, can you confirm whether it can do digital out via its USB-C port?!?
It all sounds exciting but not much has been disclosed on the UI improvements. I understand the wheel works like it should and that's great but I still feel like the owners of the QP1R haven't been given the deserved customer satisfaction. You mention that the QP1R will still receive the firmware updates, but the last update was in Dec 5th, 2016 (v1.08). Since then we have made a lot of suggestions and there's been no firmware update on the website. I don't want to get into all the issues but out of principle most people may not want to spend more unless the sound improvement is significantly noticecable, this may be a bad gamble by Questyle. ( i am hoping they did their amp magic again) If it is, then great, at some point I'll sell my QP1R to some sucker on ebay and do some more overtime and grab one. Still exciting news, I hope to try it at the London CanJam.
