AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp - Page 121

post #1801 of 1931

I got the DF 1.2 today, and have been listening for awhile. I'll post my impressions with my Pro 900 and D2000 sometime soon.

Dragonfly 1.2 sounds great!

Hi all. This is a long thread, so it may be that I missed the answer somewhere. But I'm thinking of pairing the DF with KEF m500s. The cans are rated at 32 +/-15%ohm and the DF has a max output of 32.

 

Is this pushing it? That is, will the DF generate enough power?

 

Thanks for your input.

M500 can take maximum 30mW at 32Ohm - DF can put out a lot more.

So no problem here.

Hi Guys,

 

Looking for your opinion on this:

 

I would be using the DrangonFly on a Macbook air 2013  (Bootcamp) with Shure SRH-840. I just use spotify and nothing else.

 

Is it worth the extra $50 on the 1.2 version over the previous one?

 

In any case, compared vs. the macbook air  on board dac/amp will the difference be noticeable or just marginal?

 

I used to pair these cans with my ipad 4, but I'm selling it for economical reasons. I really think that the sound from the ipad headphone jack was noticeable better.

 

Thanks in advance!

This cable costs less than 1$ US and works great with DF:
