Disclaimer: The AudioQuest Dragonfly units were sent to us free of charge in exchange for a review, we’re reusing them here for MQA. The review was published In 2016 already.
AudioQuest DragonFly & MQA – Episode 11
When AudioQuest launched the Dragonfly series they said there would be a tool to easily update the DF’s to a new firmware, and as promised AudioQuest a few months ago released this tool and a firmware update. Now with the latest FW update your DragonFly RED and Black are able to stream Master files in MQA from Tidal. As the DragonFly review is still one of our most read articles and we keep getting questions about it, we decided to make you this straight to point video on how to update your DF and how to set up tidal for the MQA streaming (Master). If you have no idea what a DragonFly Red/Black is, you better check this out first: https://headfonia.com/review-audioquest-dragonfly-red-black/
Enjoy the video!
TIDAL / MQA
As I have one DragonFly Red with MQA and another without MQA, it’s fairly easy to hear the differences between both. With the latest update and the correct settings, you get an even higher level of detail with better extension and the delivery is more relaxed. This results in a very rich and non-fatiguing sound and once you’ve heard it, it’s hard to go back to the “old way”. If you already have a DF Red/Black and a Tidal subscription that allows you to stream Master quality files, then I don’t see any reason why not to upgrade.
