Hard to believe! It's been almost four years since the originalDragonFly (v1.0) changed the world's concept of what aDAC could and should be. We've been busy for years making this new generation ofDragonFlys possible. AudioQuest worked alongside MicrochipTechnology to develop a new high-performance, full-speedUSB microcontroller (a DAC's input processor) that deliversimproved signal-to-noise ratio and significantly lower powerconsumption. Drawing 77% less current than the DragonFlyv1.2's microcontroller, the new Microchip MX microcontrollerenables true compatibility with Apple and Android smartphonesand tablets. For use with Apple iOS devices, Apple'sLightning-to-USB Camera Adaptor is required; for use withAndroid devices, a Made for Android (OTG) adaptor, such asour DragonTail USB Adaptor For Android Devices, is required.
