audioquest coming out with 3 new portable DACS, early 2nd quarter,
and supposedly from the videos below they're more versatile than the current models
and designed to work with a host of both ios and android devices, smartphones etc
2 new dragonflys (both a black and more powerful red version) and a bluetooth 'beetle' dac
new black one same design to replace current 1.2v model...supposedly both better and cheaper: only $100
also a new turbo red to drive more expensve cans...better dac/amp....$200
all upgradeable with firmware, too, so their lifespan wont' expire so soon.
first link is more detailed: Vimeo is interesting: talks about product development, the companies sourced out and why for their expertise for what audioquest was seeking in the end goal...provided by John Darko during their official release during CES 2016
interesting CES interview with the president discussing in more detail the diffs between the products and their aims.
they also talk about how they're now exploring more products dealing with line conditioning, signal integrity etc, given the success of the jitterbug.
