The new DragonFly Black incorporates improved 32-bit ESS Sabre 9010 DAC chips. It uses the same high-quality headphone amp and analog volume control found in DragonFly v1.2, DragonFly Black will output 1.2 volts which is enough to drive all preamplifier input circuits and a wide range of today’s headphones. While the new DAC chips are remarkably powerful and sophisticated, they're intentionally limited the processing capabilities to 24-bit/96kHz resolution in order to make them as simple as possible to use — eliminating the need to install new drivers in PCs.
"If history is any indication, the new Flys will be replacing a ton of originals and improving the sound of countless iPhones for the first time. Unequivocally recommended and C.A.S.H. Listed." — Computer Audiophile
The original DragonFly was a groundbreaking product, which rightly won accolades four years ago. The DragonFly Black continues this commitment to better sound quality on a budget, but in an even more impressive package. Like the caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, Audioquest’s DragonFly line has undergone a similarly remarkable metamorphosis – the outwards appearances may be similar, but this is easily the best DragonFly yet." — What HiFi?
"...the DragonFly Black is quite possibly the sharpest high street audio bargain available right now." — DigitalAudioReview.net
