Audioquest DragonFly v1.2

 

The original DragonFly blew us away, but the v1.2 takes performance to a whole new level and at a great price too!

Attractive design ; New aggressive pricing ; Superbly clear and detailed sound ; Awesome dynamics ; Great sense of timing

Has to downsample 24bit/192kHz files

The icing on the cake with this DAC, though, is that you’re getting all this outrageously good sound quality at such a tempting price. DragonFly has us buzzing all over again!

small form factor, great build quality, LED sample rate indicator, clear smooth sound signature

a bit pricy considering some competition, not a robust usb otg support (though, not intended by design)
