Smallest headphone amp on the planet! 24/96kHz just got pocketed!

The Audioquest Dragonfly USB DAC ($249) is a pocket sized USB dongle that much resembles a flash drive, but crack open the hood and it’s a serious dB boosting audio amp that can deliver up to 24/96 kHz audio quality, which is of course studio standard.  The company claims that this amazing feat for its size is achieved through its unique 24-bit ESS Sabre™ conversion chip.  The lit dragonfly on the device changes colors to indicate variable kHz audio settings ranging from 44.1kHz to 96kHz.  Although a bit pricey, you will not find anything any more professional in its class and size for the asking price.  If you are a digital DJ, this will NOT replace an audio interface because it is solely an audio output device, but if you want to hear your recordings or productions on a set of high end monitors or headsets, you may want to seriously weigh in on this.

  1. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. However imagine if
    you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.
    Great blog!
