DragonFly Red uses a ESS headphone amp and a bit-perfect digital volume control in the 9016 DAC chip, that ensures maximum fidelity, dynamic contrast, and signal-to-noise ratio. Red has much more “torque,” “grip,” and “muscle” than Black. Red simply sounds cleaner and clearer overall.

  • Bit-perfect digital volume control

A cracker of an DAC/Amp

I did a lot of reading on this DAC/Amp and I couldn’t find a single bad review. Well, 10 seconds into a cut will convince anyone that this is a cracker of a DAC/Amp. Ordered the Dragonfly and 3 business days later I was enjoying it. Fabulous service as always - thanks Travis!

Amazing piece of tech

pairing this with an intro-level audiophile level headphone took me into a new world of sound. Highly recommended.

Dragonfly Red

Very good. My third dragonfly after v1.0 and v1.2. I sold the 1.0, the 1.2 and the Red are each plugged into Raspberry Pi 3's running RuneAudio, connected wirelessly to my server and operating in my living room and home office. The Red has a tiny bit more presence than the v1.2, but is a bit more finicky on a system reboot. I love them both.
