AudioQuest recently released two new DragonFly models: DragonFly Black and DragonFly Red. Both use the same power-efficient processor, are equipped with ESS brand DAC chips, and offer up to 24-bit / 96kHz decoding, but they differ in their exact model of DAC chips, power output and volume control. I bought the DragonFly Red and almost instantly fell in love. Jump in to find out why…

Recently I reviewed the Cozoy Astrapi, a tiny USB DAC and amp that works with computers, iPhones and Androids. Well, it seems the Astrapi was something of a tease of things to come because although the Astrapi is a fantastic, ongoing product, Cozoy have followed-up with a higher spec, higher quality product called the Aegis.
I recently reviewed the Audioquest Nighthawks (much to my pleasure) and the Australian distributor of said Nighthawks surprised me by lending me 2 other products at the same time as the ‘hawks. Both products were from long-time audio manufacturer, Acoustic Research, with one product being a USB DAC / amp combo and the other being and AR-M2, Acoustic Research’s portable digital audio player (or DAP).
