Best DAC up to £300 2014 Product Of The Year

Listen to music using headphones plugged into your computer?

What you really need is a digital to analogue converter, preamplifier and headphone amplifier to make the most of the sound: in other words, the USB-stick-sized Audioquest Dragonfly V1.2, combining all these functions in a tiny package you can keep in your pocket or computer bag, and packed with the latest audio technology.

It can play music right up to beyond-CD quality, power your headphones or feed music to your hi-fi system, and doesn’t even need batteries – it’s powered from your computer.

Audioquest have improved the sound quality over the original Dragonfly so it now offers a more detailed yet richer and fuller performance.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
