Two new DragonFly USB DACs from AudioQuest
It’s been almost four years since the original DragonFly (v1.0) changed the world’s concept of what a DAC could and should be. At only $249, but with expensive component-quality performance, DragonFly was hailed around the world as the perfect introduction to the pleasures of high-performance audio.
A year and half later, DragonFly rocked the audio world again when AudioQuest introduced the updated v1.2 — for only $149. The sound was simply a little cleaner, a little better controlled, and more relaxed — unequivocally better. And, the new price helped bring better-sounding music to even more people.
Now, AudioQuest is truly pleased to introduce two new models — DragonFly Black and DragonFly Red — with unprecedented audio quality and even higher performance-to-cost ratios. And, drum roll, they work with Apple and Android phones!
Yes, that last point is a biggie. From the day that the original DragonFly came out, we got requests for a DragonFly-quality DAC to use with smartphones. Finally, thanks to newly available parts, power draw is now well within what any phone will authorize.
