Thanks to its low-noise, high-efficiency Microchip microcontroller, DragonFly Red draws extremely low power from the host, enabling seamless compatibility with Apple iOS and Android mobile devices. DragonFly Red requires no additional drivers and plays all digital files-from MP3 to high-res (with native resolutions up to 24 bits and 96kHz). It features StreamlengthTM asynchronous USB code, which ensures low jitter, low resource load, minimal packet errors, world-class audio playback, and reliable connectivity between DragonFly and any computing device compliant with USB Host Mode. DragonFly Red's 32-bit ESS 9016 DAC chip uses a sophisticated minimum-phase digital filter to provide more naturally detailed and dynamic music, while the bit-perfect digital volume control enables maximum resolution regardless of volume setting: With DragonFly Red connected to a PC or mobile device, adjusting the host's volume control will adjust DF Red's onboard volume. With an output of 2.1 volts, DragonFly Red delivers enough power to successfully drive all preamplifier, integrated amplifier, or receiver inputs, as well as a wide range of today's headphones, including power-hungry models. AudioQuest's free Desktop Device Manager application allows for software upgrades to meet future technological advancements. DragonTail is a USB 2.0 extender for use when a USB device (such as AQ's DragonFly® USB Stick , Digital-Audio Converter or a flash drive) is too large to fit next to other occupied computer ports. Because audio performance must never be compromised in any application, DragonTail's crucial design elements are shared with Carbon digital-audio interconnects, including solid 5% silver conductors, foamed-polyethylene insulation to maintain critical signal-pair geometry, and direct-silver plated (male) USB contacts. DragonTail's signal-carrying conductors are controlled for digital-audio directionality for more engaging, "3D" sound.
