I'm listening to Ronald Jenkees "Fifteen Fifty" on my Pandora with the Shure earbuds.
Talk about high definition, it doesn't get much better than this in my experience!
I highly recommend Ronald Jenkees' three albums.
All of his music is totally awesome... even his raps!
He has a huge following on youtube - and yeah I know youtube is ultra low-fi,
full disclosure: I am Ronald Jenkees pimp, no just kidding.
I don't think this is spam, I am a just a fan - & some of his music is great for testing audio kit!
Can the Dragonfly function as a portable player in itself, or you have to plug it into a computer? or Pandora :)
Costs about $300? Did you get a better deal?
Why so expensive, is the cost mainly from the DAC chip itself?
I can't imagine any chip costs anything like that much, even a GPU chip!
For $100 I would definitely get one, or $200 if it could work as a player without the computer,
but $300 for a USB audio device, it seems to me like they must be making more than 200% profit on each unit!
I guess it's unique, and they want to cover their R&D costs.
