AudioQuest DragonFly Black USB DAC Headphone Amp.

The AudioQuest DragonFly Black USB DAC Headphone Amp is a thumb-sized, completely USB-powered headphone amp and Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) that improves the quality of your computer-based music listening. The new DragonFly Black will also accept a digital signal from an Apple or Android device (using the Apple Camera Connection Kit or AudioQuest DragonTail Android Adapter), making it a perfect portable solution for the mobile audiophile.  The Dragonfly plays all file types and handles high-resolution up to 24-bit / 96 kHz. Variable output drives powered speakers or powered amps; a fixed output line-level feeds your preamp or receiver. Of course, the Dragon fly works especially well at driving headphones with improved spaciousness and clearer acoustic textures while presenting a deeper, wider soundstage image. Great portable headphone sonics in a very tiny size.
