Why DragonFly Black Will Change the Way You Hear Your Music
There’s nothing more convenient than having your music on your smartphone. With DragonFly, that luxury just got a lot better.
Smartphones can have dual purposes for many people: using them for their standard use (phone calls, texting, internet browsing, apps, etc.) and as an everyday portable music player. The convenience of having your entire music album at your fingertips wherever you go without having to carry a separate device is definitely one to not take for granted, but did you know that you can do more than just upload and listen to your music? With DragonFly Black, give your entire music listening experience an upgrade.
AudioQuest’s thumb-key-size DragonFly Black is a DAC and headphone amplifier all wrapped up in a USB memory stick shell. For those not in the know, DAC converts digital audio information into an analog signal that can be sent to headphones, powered speakers, amplifiers and receivers for optimal listening enjoyment. For example, the sound card that’s built into your computer and feeds through the headphone jack is an example of a DAC. Your computer isn’t built just for audio, that means that the quality is compromised to an extent. The same can be said with your smartphone, and that’s where DragonFly Black comes into play.
DragonFly uses a sophisticated “asynchronous” USB audio data transfer protocol that commands the timing of the audio data transfer, dramatically reducing digital timing errors, which results in low jitter, low resource load, minimal packet errors and reliable, world-class audio playback. The DragonFly Black works with most Android devices running on Lollipop OS and KitKat, provided that the device manufacturer has adhered to the USB specifications and supports USB-based audio. With your phone connected to a Wi-Fi network, the DragonFly application can support playback for Tidal streaming.
