This Holiday Season, Give the Gift of Great Bluetooth Sound with AudioQuest Beetle!

Don’t shake your head - Bluetooth CAN sound surprisingly good, it just needs to be implemented properly!

When Audioquest decided to incorporate Bluetooth capability into Beetle, ($199) they knew it had to outperform the less than stellar efforts on the market thus far (Hey Alexa!), so they once again tapped the genius of Gordon Rankin (the asynchronous DAC master of Wavelength and AQ DragonFly fame) to come up with a better way. The result is an entirely new technology designed exclusively for Beetle; Streamlength Asynchronous Bluetooth®. This new tech gives Beetle ultimate control over the Bluetooth signal for a massive sonic upgrade! Although nobody will be fooled into thinking this is High-Rez, Beetle is the absolute best way to listen to music via Bluetooth. If you or your loved ones want to add Bluetooth capability to their listening systems, make sure they do it with an AQ Beetle.

What is Beetle? 

Beetle is a diminutive, 24/96 capable, desktop Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) based on DragonFly Black’s core, but adding Bluetooth, Toslink and USB digital inputs. Like DragonFly Black, Beetle outputs an analog signal via a 3.5mm jack on the rear. This jack can be used to connect headphones (just like the DragonFly series) or can be used with a 3.5mm to 2 x RCA cable (also like the DragonFly series), which will connect Beetle to virtually anything. When used as a USB DAC, Beetle receives its power from the connected computer, however, AudioQuest includes an AC power supply for use when Beetle is a stand-alone converter for Bluetooth or Toslink input.

What about Dragonfly? 

DragonFly Red ($199) and DragonFly Black ($99) continue to be some of our best selling digital products; their award-winning sound and compact size have made them hugely popular! These high-value, MQA-enabled, high-performance asynchronous DAC / headphone amps enormously improve the sound quality of smart phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. The best part is - they’re essentially plug and play; there are no drivers to install, no operating system restrictions, they just work! Give your music wings this holiday season with DragonFly!
