With the first version of Dragonfly 1.2, Audioquest proved their worth in the audio equipment in the industry. Now they are ready to set the bar even higher with the second version of one of the most compact DAC in the world. The Dragonfly USB DAC V1.2 is an improved version of the original Dragonfly DAC that works on the same principle and designs ethics. This USB enabled Digital-to-Analog converter features an enhanced circuitry between the convertor chip and the analog stage. This USB stick-size DAC has the potential to drive high-performance headphones, powered speakers and power amps.Size-Defying Performance
The Dragonfly V1.2 is a compact-sized DAC that simply connects to the USB port of your computer. But donít be fooled by its size! This Digital-to-Analog converter is a monster when it comes to audio performance with the 24-bit ESS Sabreô conversion chip at its heart. This high-performance chip can take on anything, from MP3 to 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution and all the leading file formats. If your computer can recognize the format, the Dragonfly can play it at its best possible quality.Intelligent Design
The Dragonfly USB DAC V1.2 incorporates the asynchronous USB data transfer protocol that helps in efficient transfer of data and reduce timing errors. It takes over the timing clock of the computer and itself gives command to the timing circuit to prevent any timing errors. It also uses two discrete on-board clocking circuits to make the audio compatible with the DAC by bringing it to the native resolution. To overcome the loss of quality caused due to digital volume controls, the Dragonfly DAC has a high-resolution analog volume control that processes the instructions in the analog domain. The analog circuit is directly coupled to the ESS converter chipís output that prevents the use of unnecessary components in the signal path that reduce the sonic quality of the signal.
