AudioQuest Takes Off with DragonFly DAC USB Stick
The digital audio converter can plug into any computer’s USB port.
August 13, 2012 by Rachel Cericola

For a lot of you, the computer has become an audio hub. Some people use computers as a main source of music, while others store everything they’ve got on that connected hard drive. Some even use a PC or Mac for all of their video needs.

It’s nice to have that one device multitask. However, computers aren’t known for producing the best sound. That’s why AudioQuest has the DragonFly USB stick. Looking a lot like a thumb drive, this stick plugs into the USB port on your PC or Mac. From there, the magic of AudioQuest can make some beautiful music through headphones, powered speakers, or even a full-on audio rig.

The DragonFly has an audiophile-grade 24-bit ESS Sabre chip and a 2-volt output to drive all of your goodies. Other features include a 64-position (computer-controlled) analog volume control and dual clocks for a native resolution up to 24-bit/96kHz.

AudioQuest says that the DragonFly can also do music on the fly, since it measures a mere 19-by-12-by-46 mm. It’s shipping now, with an MSRP of $249.
