Makes crackling and hissing noise that randomly comes and goes. Otherwise, it's the best audio quality I've ever heard.

We attempted to use this product with a MacBook Pro, but found that it was impossible to adjust the volume to our liking. The audio volume was too loud. I just contacted the supplier to request an RMA#.

Outstanding device
I've owned about a half dozen USB DACs over the years, but this one is easily the only one that approaches real hi-fi equipment.

All the professional reviews and awards are spot on. Incredible value and great sound.

Does it work with tv?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2018
  No. Most modern TVs do not have the ability to use USB as an audio output, so the Dragonfly will not be able to work as intended.
Wonder why not usb C?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2022
  Thanks for your inquiry.
Using DragonTail to connect to an external USB DAC, such as an AudioQuest DragonFly, will provide greatly improved audio performance.
