The wait is finally over.  Audioquest just released their new Beetle micro-DAC and it is wonderful! Based on the same 32Bit ESS Sabre DAC chipset in the Dragonfly Black, Beetle is an evolved kind of Critter. Audioquest’s first free-standing DAC, Beetle features a USB Micro input as well as Bluetooth and Toslink inputs, Beetle receives the first implementation of Asynchronous Bluetooth we’ve ever encountered and it’s a huge improvement over standard Bluetooth! Much more transparent and engaging. Like Dragonfly, Beetle features a 3.5mm headphone jack output which can also be used as a line-out and it even has a hidden mini-Toslink output! This allows Beetle to very inexpensively add Bluetooth and USB capabilities to any Home Theater or other DAC!
