Audioquest DragonFly Black

The Next Generation:

Black & Red

While the original DragonFly defined the market for micro-DACs, its USB power draw made it compatible with computers only.

Music lovers have craved a more portable version—one that could be reliably used with Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.

Audioquest have now given us two new options that do just that:

Audioquest DragonFly Black and DragonFly Red.

Convenience and performance are no longer mutually exclusive.

With DragonFly Black and Red, any computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone can be used as a true high-fidelity music player, allowing music lovers to enjoy beautiful sound wherever they go, whenever they please.

AudioQuest, Gordon Rankin, and Microchip: A Beautiful Partnership

AudioQuest and DragonFly designer Gordon Rankin worked alongside Microchip Technology to develop a new high-performance, full-speed USB microcontroller solution that delivers improved signal-to-noise ratio and significantly lower power consumption.

Drawing 77% less current than the previous microcontroller, the new Microchip PIC32MX microcontroller enables true compatibility with Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.

Improved 32-Bit Digital Performance

For greater overall performance, the new models also incorporate improved 32-bit ESS Sabre DAC chips—the 9010 in Black and the higher-performance 9016 in Red—both of which employ minimum-phase filtering for naturally detailed, more authentic sound.

While Audioquest DragonFly Black uses the same high-quality headphone amp and analog volume control found in v1.2,
