    DESCRIPTION

    Made in Collaboration with Gordon Rankin & Microchip Technologies

    The DragonFly Black has been developed by AudioQuest in partnership with designers Gordon Rankin and Microchip Technologies. The new DragonFly has a better signal to noise ratio and much lower power consumption than the original version. How much lower consumption you ask? 77%! This is thanks to the new Microchip PIC32MX microcontroller that enables true compatibility with Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.

    Incredible 32-Bit Audio Performance with New ESS Sabre DAC Chips

    The new DragonFly Black comes with a 32-bit 9010 ESS Sabre DAC chip that employs minimum-phase filtering for naturally detailed, more authentic sound. The DragonFly Black uses the same high-quality headphone amp and analog volume control found in DragonFly v1.2.

     

    Asynchronous USB Streamlength®

    Streamlength™ asynchronous USB code ensures low jitter, low resource load, minimal packet errors, world-class audio playback, and reliable connectivity between our DAC and any computing device compliant with USB Host Mode (as set forth by the USB Organization). Streamlength requires no additional drivers, making DragonFly Black virtually plug-and-play for Apple, Windows, iOS, and Android users.

    Medium Output at 1.2 Volts for Most Headphones

    DragonFly Black will output 1.2 volts—enough power to successfully drive all preamplifier input circuits and a wide range of today’s efficient headphones. Its processing capabilities to just 24-bit/96kHz resolution. This makes using the DragonFlys as simple as it’s always been: they’re fully compatible with PCs without having to download and install new drivers.

    Upgradeable Software through Free Desktop App

    The DragonFlys are software upgradeable thanks to the free Windows or Mac desktop app. As and when there are any updates available to music player apps, streaming protocols, or other software, the complimentary app will let you incorporate these updates to any existing devices.

    Analog Volume Control

    Unlike the DragonFly Red, the DragonFly Black supports digital control (from the host) analog volume control. With DF Black connected to a PC or mobile device, adjusting the host's volume control will, through proxy, control the DF Black's onboard volume, ensuring maximum resolution regardless of volume setting.

    Expert Verdict "The DragonFly Black continues this commitment to better sound quality on a budget, but in an even more impressive package. The look of it may be same, but this is easily the best DragonFly yet."
    What Hi-Fi
    "If Headfonia would hand out medals, the DFR would surely get one it’s that nice.I seriously doubt there are better DAC/Amp combinations in this price category and especially in such a small package."
    Headfonia
    "Everyone has a phone these days and plenty are Android. Introduce them to a good quality sound from their jack-free smartphone if you can. It won’t break the bank."
    Headfonics
    "The iFi Zen Dac is one of the best entry-level DACs you can buy. It sounds great, has a ton of features, and can grow with your system as your tastes evolve."
