AudioQuest DragonFly Red review


Audioquest's most expensive DragonFly DAC is worth every penny...

Sophisticated, solid and subtle sound ; As convenient as ever ; Smartphone compatible

Wow! What a difference!


Had been dithering about buying the Dragonfly Red for ages despite its almost constant five star reviews. Took the plunge a couple of weeks ago and now wish I hadn't dithered - the improvement is startling. I'm using it with a pair of Bose powered...

Great sound


Had the dragonfly black and that was good but the red is a lot better on power and sounds more controlled. Easy to use on my Mac book using tidal masters. Recommend
