This is a quite convenient dac/amp, , because it has the size of an usb key , and you can move it easily from one computer to an other. It's a relatively recent product, and I saw a head-fi moderator using it with a "high end" headphone.



I'm skeptical about the sound quality, from something that small, but then I saw the price : 250$ blink.gif
It's the AudioQuest DragonFly Asynchronous USB DAC.

Hence my question, how good could be something that small ?
In comparison my xonar stx soundcard , is much more bulky, not portable, and not as expensive.
