Stupendous Sound, 32-Bit SABRE DAC, 2.1v Output Drives Almost Any Headphones: AudioQuest DragonFly Red USB DAC/Headphone Amp Simple to Use, Works With Apple and Android Devices

Playing music on your computer, laptop, stereo, smartphone, tablet, or powered speakers becomes exponentially better, more authoritative, and stunningly lifelike with the groundbreaking AudioQuest DragonFly Red DAC/headphone amplifier. Among the most exciting new audio products in recent memory, DragonFly Red sets new benchmarks for how much performance, portability, and flexibility is possible from an asynchronous USB DAC. Offering tremendously enhanced sound, higher value, and significantly lower power consumption than the original award-winning DragonFly for a lower price, DragonFly Red even works with Apple and Android phones and tablets when paired with a simple adapter. Most importantly, this versatile DAC improves everything – detail, transparency, immediacy, richness, tone – associated with your music. And Red plays everything from MP3s to 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution files with spectacular simplicity and ease of use. Lest we forget, it doubles as a serious headphone amplifier and comes with our 100% Money-Back Satisfaction Guarantee.

"DragonFly Red and Black are the finest examples of everyman hi-fi to ever grace these pages. Their value quotients explode the dial."
– John Darko, DigitalAudioReview.net, Knockout Award

DragonFly Red: Stupendous Sound, a Better DAC, and a More Powerful Headphone Amp
For just a little bit more money than its very good sibling, Red gives you a lot more naturalism, dynamics, grip, and power. Featuring a high-end 32-bit ESS 9016 Sabre DAC and a 2.1-volt output, Red can drive almost any headphone – including hard-to-drive, low-efficiency models – and comes with more muscle and torque than its standout sibling, Black. Red also includes a cutting-edge ESS headphone amplifier. The upshot: Red produces cleaner and clearer sonics along with wider soundstages, superior instrumental separation, greater depth, lower-level information retrieval, and stellar balance. Operating without compromising the original signal, a bit-perfect digital volume control ensures optimal fidelity and signal-to-noise ratio. Like Black, Red is upgradeable and ready for future developments via complimentary desktop applications.

“The Red has more in reserve, and is thus able to sound both cleaner and more exciting, especially when playing complex recordings. That’s as true as when driving headphones as it is when connected to a main system.”
-Hi-Fi News, Outstanding Product review

Apple and Android Compatibility: Simple Adapters Required for Use
DragonFly Red and Black require simple adapters to work with Apple and Android devices. For use with Apple iOS, you'll need Apple's Lightning-to-USB camera adapter. For Android, a Made for Android (OTG) adapter, such as the AudioQuest DragonTail USB Adapter, is required.
