Audioquest dragonfly black usb dac dragonfly black is a usb digital to analogue converter dac designed to deliver cleaner clearer more naturally beautiful sound from any computer smartphone or tablet'. '.strtoupper('d')ragonfly black's unique design allows for playback of any file type regardless of resolution'. '.strtoupper('n')atively dragonfly black is capable of decoding 24 bit 96khz data'. '.strtoupper('d')ragonfly black represents the culmination of several new and exciting achievements over the better part of three years audioquest and acclaimed engineer gordon rankin have been tirelessly developing sophisticated software solutions that have allowed us to implement a new high performance class of usb microcontrollers'. '.strtoupper('w')e have chosen to work with microchip a leading provider of microcontroller and analogue semiconductors'. '.strtoupper('w')ith exceedingly low power consumption and extremely low noise power supplies the microchip microcontrollers achieve unprecedented levels of efficiency and signal to noise ratio regardless of bit or sample rate'. '.strtoupper('w')hile dragonfly versions 1.0 and 1.2 achieved new standards of performance and portability in the high fidelity audio world many of our customers have longed for a similar product that could be reliably used with their handheld mobile devices'. '.strtoupper('p')reviously dragonfly's power consumption limited its compatibility to mac and windows laptops and pcs'. '.strtoupper('n')ow with our developments in the field of microcontrollers we are able to improve dragonfly's performance while also offering compatibility with handheld apple mobile and android devices'. '.strtoupper('i')mproved performance and greater versatility'! '.strtoupper('d')ragonfly black employs a unique clock system called a hybrid pll'. '.strtoupper('w')hile not discrete the hybrid pll performs equal to or better than many discrete clock systems at a fraction of their cost'. '.strtoupper('t')his has allowed us to devote resources to more sophisticated components elsewhere.
