Gear Review: AudioQuest DragonFly - Red or Black? - Hi Res Audio Central


AudioQuest is a US based company and the EU headquarters is located in the Netherlands. AudioQuest since the 1980's is mostly known for their cables but they became even more popular among “head-fiers” when they released a very popular mini USB DAC/AMP...

Quality sound


I bought this item following all the positive reviews. The item was delivered on time, as usual, from Richer sounds but i was disappointed to see the box was crushed at both ends and the internal plastic tray containing the firefly was back to front...

Music is greatly improved on all devices


The DAC comes very well packed with a colourful box with specifications and a list of accessories, out of the box you will get the DAC and a leather carry case, you will need to buy an extra cable to use it with mobile devices, it works out of the box...

Small in size, big in sound


Bought this in order to experience Apple music in Lossless & Hi-Res. The sound quality using the DragonFly Red along with my Dali io-6 (wired) is awesome! I've also tried this out whilst plugged into our Sony STR-DN1080, again the music playback...

Excellent DAC-amplifier


I am using this USB DAC-amplifier with a pair of BeyerDynamic DT 880 Pros. They sound simply divine. If I were to plug these headphones directly into a headphone jack and adjust the volume upwards, my ears would ring with tinnitus after listening. The...

Does a job, but pricey and not without fault


- Context: OK. So I initially bought this for use with my phone but, a few weeks on, I'm still waiting for the Dragontail to come from Audioquest so can't comment on how it does there. So that's a little unfair. It's designed to be portable that's not...
