AudioQuest DragonFly Red USB DAC Headphone Amp

AudioQuest DragonFly Red USB DAC Headphone Amp.

The AudioQuest DragonFly Red USB DAC headphone amp is a thumb-sized, completely USB-powered headphone amp and Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) unit that significantly improves the quality of your computer-based music listening.

The Dragonfly can also accept a digital signal from iOS or Android devices using the Apple Camera Connection Kit (or AudioQuest DragonTail Android adapter), making it a perfect portable solution for the mobile smartphone or tablet-based audiophile.  

The Dragonfly Red plays all high-resolution file types up to 24-bit / 96 kHz. A variable output signal can serve to drive powered speakers or power amps; a fixed output line-level signal robustly feeds your pre-amp or receiver at home. The excellent flexibility of use of the Dragonfly Red amp/DAC is nothing short of impressive. And the fact that this thing is actually smaller than a real dragonfly is equally astonishing!

Of course, the powerhouse Dragonfly Red works beautifully driving high-impedance headphones with improved spaciousness and clearer acoustic textures along with a deeper soundstage image presentation. The Red Dragonfly amp/DAC has a very robust output power of 2.1 Volts to be able to drive extra-power hungry headphones with ease. Truly superior high-end portable headphone sound in a very tiny size at an extremely fair price.
