AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp - Page 143

post #2131 of 2139

After a few days with it, it has accomplished every single expectation I had on it. It sounds clean, detailed, has a good dynamic range, deep and tight bass...

With M50x and a buddy's DT770Pro 250, it seems like it reaches the point of diminishing returns for these headphones and that it might still have hidden potential.

Plug it into an external amp and watch how far it punches above its weight.

I'd have though it doesn't need an amp at all with the M50x... (The 770 does need more juice, but the SPL it gets with the DF is more than enough)

And about the SPL, how the hell do volume steps work with the DF? In theory, reference level should be reached at -15dB with the M50x, and that'd be 37% of max in Windows, (Which I'm using for testing) but that doesn't sound anywhere near reference level, and I want to calculate my RMS. (It seems like the steps do not go by proportional or something)

Thank you google. Your fix for the chrome just come in time. Just got my dragonfly 1.2 and found that there were 2 issues on Ubuntu and Chrome. First one is a pulseaudio config file tweak and second is this chrome browser compatibility issue with 24 bit, which has been fixed in their lasted 46 development version.

Thanks, this is going to make a lot of dragonfly owners happy.

I like the Dragonfly for a small portable, but the non-portable Bifrost is much better in absolute terms.  IMO.
