AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp - Page 119

I don't see how this helps - it's not like DF is too heavy and bends under its own weight.

it doesnt bend for sure but still relieves stress on the USB port

No one is pointing a gun to your head, making you buy an extension... We just suggest one to extend the life of your components. The Dragonfly's male never inserts finally into the female. There also is a good bit of weight that can lead to damage. The reason for the DragonTail over a cheap USB extension is that it's usually $16 and uses AQ's carbon line (solid core copper). Believe cable smoke or not... A good cable is reliable. The $1-5 cables always end up dying on me, eventually.

Sorry if I come off snooty. But if you use one long enough (or read through the entire thread) it makes way more sense. biggrin.gif

Does anyone know if this will work with a Playstation 4?

 

I know my USB headset works, so I'm assuming that this will too.

You had me at "uses AQ's carbon line (solid core copper)" = a load of dung.

Yes cheaply made cables die sooner sometimes but a $16 cable is not needed at all for this.

i paid the $16 for the dragontail, and it has served me well.  probably as well as other cables would, but it was $16, not $50, and length was perfect for what i needed it for.  no regrets here.

It prevents damage to the dragonfly and USB port.

Ah, good point.  That's one reason I hadn't thought of or heard before.

Hey guys, little problem.

 

I just got home from work and sat down at my PC and now my Dragonfly is not outputting any audio.

 

I have gone through and checked to make sure the settings are correct and nothing is working.

 

When I try to play a test tone in windows it says that it failed to play a test tone and when playing something through music bee it tells me that there is a Bass_error_handle.

 

It worked 12 hours ago =/

A silly question: is the Dagonfly getting power or enough power, i.e. does it glow?

post #1783 of 1906

Sorry to beat a dead horse but even searching didn't get a solid answer. @mrscotchguy seemed to have the closest thing but not a definite yes.

Does the Dragonfly V1.0 or V1.2 work with just an OTG cable to a Galaxy S3?

And completely separate but related, will 200mA run the Dragonfly?

My brother still has an S3. I can see if he can let me try it out. But from what I read, the reason the DF works is due to Samsung's TouchWiz. I don't know if the S3 has that or if it's even the same as the Note. We tried the DF one of my employees S4 and it didn't work...

Just tried it on my daughters (AT&T) S3 and it would not work- stated "high powered USB device connected....". Guessing it can't power it sufficiently. She is on 4.1.2 Android.
