DESCRIPTION

THE ULTIMATE PORTABLE DAC/AMP

The AudioQuest DragonFly Black has been developed in partnership with Gordon Rankin and Microchip Technologies. It has a better signal to noise ratio and consumes 77% lesser power than the original DragonFly thanks to the Microchip PIC32MX microcontroller. Streamlength™ asynchronous USB code ensures low jitter, low resource load, minimal packet errors, world-class audio playback and reliable connectivity between the Dragonfly Black and any computing device with a USB output.

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."
