AudioQuest DragonFly USB Digital-Audio Converter and Sydney Interconnect Sweepstakes

Register to win an AudioQuest DragonFly USB Digital-Audio Converter and Sydney Interconnect (MSRP $478) we are giving away.

According to AudioQuest:

Beautiful Sound ... From Any Computer: DragonFly is an affordable and easy-to-use device that delivers far superior sound by bypassing the poor quality sound card that is built into your computer. DragonFly is a sleek, flash drive sized Digital-Audio Converter that connects to a USB jack on a Mac or Windows PC, turning any computer into a true high- fidelity music source.

Whether you’re on the go or at home, listening on ear buds or connecting your computer to a stereo system, DragonFly reveals all the emotional expression and nuance that makes your favorite music, or movies, so enjoyable. However you connect it, DragonFly simply and easily makes any computer sound better.

Plays All Music Files: MP3 to 24-bit/192kHz
Drives Headphones Directly
Variable Output Drives Powered Speakers or Power Amp
Fixed Output Feeds Preamp or Receiver
Asynchronous Transfer Ensures Digital Timing Integrity
Two Clocks Enable Native Resolution Up To 24-bit/96kHz

For this special sweepstakes, included with DragonFly is a low-distortion AudioQuest Sydney analog interconnect cable with a 3.5mm "mini" plug at the DragonFly end and stereo RCAs at the other end. From AQ's Bridges & Falls series, Sydney is all that's required to connect DragonFly to a full-blown audio rig just like a traditional DAC or disc player, or directly to a power amplifier. Sydney employs superior materials and design, including solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ conductors, air-tube insulation, and AudioQuest's 3-layer Noise-Dissipation System for low distortion and high performance.

cegustin's picture

Got a Dragonfly a few weeks to use while traveling.  Listen to KCSM FM Jazz on my MacBook Pro while on long flights (Go-Go Wi-Fi, Shure 535 IEMs), to listen to my iTunes library and to use my Mac with a Foxl speaker in hotel rooms.  The Dragonfly makes a huge difference in the audio quality from my Mac.  Now I would like a Dragonfly to keep on my home system.  I know, I'm greedy, but I would still like two.  This is an amazing product!

CLAUDIO's picture

Hi, I am an analogue lover and I haven't considered a digital front end because of its limitations but I admit that I am intrigued by such a simple yet, allegedly, very good device to listen to some of my music which sadly is only available in the digital domain. 

Shayne's picture

This would be pretty cool.

dmgrant1's picture

Well, if I get this, I will be forced to listen to some digital music.  I wonder what it sounds like?

TheBottomline's picture

Just trying to  get a win. Somewhere.

The record reviews have been very helpful.  I have learned a lot about various record companies and enriched my record collection in the process.
