The Gadgeteer
26 May 2013
  • Excerpt: In the portable world of digital music, it seems that most people are happy with whatever setup they have – whether it’s a laptop, iPod or smart phone. Ironically, the most expensive device from this list also has the worst audio output: your computer.
  • Pros: Improves audio quality, Works with headphones, earphones, speakers, Includes headphone amp, Solid construction, Extremely easy to set up, Much smaller than others and more portable
  • Cons: Expensive, USB cap easy to lose, Additional DragonTail cord almost a necessity if using USB port on iMac or monitor

Audioquest DragonFly USB DAC

Audio Ideas Guide
21 November 2012
  • Excerpt: “This is a product that may look a little like a Dragonfly, but one that soars more like a Dragon flying, as seen in various special-effects-heavy Hollywood films of late. It’s a friendly beast, too, easy to set up and use with any computer of today’s normal specs for USB digital audio output.

Bild och Ljud
19 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Audioquest Dragonfly är en superbärbar digitalomvandlare som ryms i fickan och som alltså kan följa med överallt och ge hifi-ljudkvalitet även med riktigt usla datorer. Troligtvis kommer du främst att använda Dragonfly med hörlurar, en uppgift den klarar lekande lätt.

17 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Der Audioquest Dragonfly ist ein Klangvorkämpfer für edle Studentenbuden und mobile Musikkonsumenten. Plug, Play, Power. Bereits der interne Amp düpiert jede Notebook-Hardware: ein deutlicher Schub an Grob- wie Feindynamik.
  • Pros: Kompakte Bauweise, Gute Verarbeitung, Überzeugende Klangleistung

  • Summary: Toll, was man für gerade mal 250 Euro an Klang und Flexibilität bekommen kann. Es ist nur schwer, sich zu entscheiden. Nehme ich ihn auf Reisen mit oder bleibt er als stationärer DAC an der Anlage? Beides ist denkbar und klanglich exzellent.
