Audioquest Dragonfly DAC and Grado SR80i Headphones from Needle Doctor Sweepstakes

Register to win a Audioquest Dragonfly DAC and Grado SR80i Headphones (MSRP $298) from Needle Doctor we are giving away.

According to Needle Doctor:

Whether you are a budding audiophile or a serious enthusiast in need of a mobile solution, the following package is for you. The Audioquest Dragonfly and Grado SR80s are not only Needle Doctor staff favorites individually, but they work great as a pair.

The versatile Audioquest Dragonfly is first a high quality USB DAC capable of decoding up to 24bit/96kHz digital files of any format. It is also an adept headphone amplifier which will make your new Grado headphones sing with warmth and body. Just plug one end of the Dragonfly into the USB port of your laptop (or desktop) computer, and the SR80s into the other, and you will breathe new life in to your digital music collection or any streaming online content.

Don't forget that you can also integrate the Dragonfly with your home hi-fi system. Simply connect the 3.5mm output with a nice mini-to-RCA cable to an open line-level input, and enjoy the increased clarity in your main system.

Big fan of the prize package you've put together here. I've got no audiophile level cans to listen to right now, and this would be a great setup for me. Plus reminds me of home, and wandering through Needle Doctor back in Dinkytown.

I already use a 60i so getting a 80i would be cool. Also been looking at the dragonfly for awhile now.

Best prize offering yet!

ThomAnon's picture

Haven't listened to these, but my son could use the DragonFly for his Sufjan Stevens & Fleet Foxes, and my daughter would love the Grados to listen to Katy Perry & Lady Gaga. 

Or, maybe I could just use both of them for my Duke Ellington & Brian Eno!

hifidez's picture

This combination of the Dragonfly DAC with Grado 'phones means that any old laptop or PC can turned into a top flight, portable, high-end hifi.  :-)
