AudioQuest DragonFly Red

Reviewed on 6th June 2016 at
£170

The DragonFly Red builds on the qualities of the Black but it takes performance up a few notches. It's a simple and near-flawless option for anyone looking to give their computer music a hi-fi boost. It was also crowned Best USB DAC £100+ in our 2016 Awards.

Chord Mojo

Reviewed on 14th October 2015 at
£399

Put simply, the £400 Mojo delivers much of the performance of the Award-winning, £1400 Chord Hugo at a fraction of the price. It's an outstanding product for the money and was crowned our DAC Product of the Year in 2016.
