AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp - Page 114

post #1696 of 1934

O2 is a great amplifier for the price. Ive never tried it with the HD600 so idk what the synergy is like but i can say its a great amp that definitely has the power for the H600

post #1697 of 1934

Sorry to hijack the topic but after some research (thanks Head-Fi...!), I think the DF would be a nice fit for my HD650s.

I was wondering how much would cost a dragonfly second hand as I'm in Canada and people there tend to sell it for $155 to 185,(no, I'm serious...), so perhaps after that I can make a informed decision and start watching the trade threads here.

post #1698 of 1934

Not sure what kind of price you're willing to pay but the going rate is $150 in Canada if you look around.  I got the DF 1.2 new for less than that (I've dealt this this store for years and can negotiate :) and sold my 1.0 for $90.  There are a lot of stores around still at the original prices. It's $150 at Headphone Bar including shipping but not taxes. You can check out the used market (Canuck Audio Mart) but they seem to sell fast. I think the 1.0 might be better for the HD650.  Pair it up with a Schiit Vali later on and you've got yourself a pretty sweet little system.

Thanks for the heads up. Actually, I found some local stores which sell it. I wanted to buy second hand as I already have a Aune T1 and I'm not sure yet if that's really The one for my HD650s. I'd like to try both and then decide on which one to keep.

 

And yes, the prices I've quoted before are from CanuckAudio... :)

Can you not buy new from Amazon? The v1.0 is only $99 new, and like $90 used. 

post #1701 of 1934

Not in Canada. It's $200 and there's only the v2 available.

That's ok, I need to go to the US in a couple of weeks, I will grab one there.

Has anyone compared the DragonFly with Audioengine D3?

post #1703 of 1934

I just picked up one of the V1.0 Dragonflys and am getting the occasional quick pop and click out of it occasionally, especially if I am doing something else on my PC. Other than that, I'm quite enjoying it.

 

I don't experience this with a Schitt Modi - are there any known issues like this? Does it sound like a defective unit?
 

Any feedback appreciated.

I've never had this issues on Windows 7 & 8.

I used to have issues with windows 8 before any updates. I updated everything including the free upgrade to 8.1 and since then I havent heard a single click or pop, if anything it sounds better! And yes Audioquest acknowledged the clicking issue with windows 8 and has since fixed it. make sure your computer is up to date and let us know if that fixes it! I hope it does because that clicking drove me absolutely insane.

post #1706 of 1934

I am running Windows 7 so that's not the issue.

 

I may have it isolated though - may just be a cable issue or at least a cable seating issue.. Had it connected via a Mediabridge USB extender. Connected directly to my USB port and the issue seems to have resolved.

 

Thanks for the feedback.

Hech, a bad USB cable!!!

I've been reading this thread for a while, and now I am considering sell my O2 or trade it for a DragonFLy 1.2. 

I love the O2, but I could use a more portable DAC/Amp. 

post #1709 of 1934
Be careful with your decision. I would advise you to purchase the Dragonfly first to see if it meets your needs. I suspect there are some trade offs between the two, power being one.

Thanks. The problem is I will probably end up keeping both :$.
I never heard my Grados sound better with anything else other than the O2. The DF should work fine for them when traveling.
