About AudioQuest DragonTail A USB Extender
The AudioQuest Dragontail A Extender is a Female USB A to a Male USB A Adapter for use with laptops, tablets and computers.
AudioQuest's DragonFly DAC's are very popular because of their amazing sound quality transformation properties. But plugging a heavy headphone cable into it can put a strain on your PC's USB port. You can relieve the stress and risk of damage with AudioQuest's DragonTail A USB extender. The flexible DragonTail simply plugs in between your PC and your DAC to reduce the chance of damage. It's a must-have accessory when travelling with your laptop and DAC, and also works great for connecting USB thumb drives. Plus, if your computer's USB ports are very close together, the DragonTail's slender connector saves space so you can plug in your DAC or thumb drive more easily next to other occupied ports.
The letters USB stand for Universal Serial BUS and this was established by a stalwart group of companies such as Intel, Hewlett-Packard, and Microsoft (just to name a few) in order to give the personal computing world a truly universal standard and means to connect devices such as hard drives, printers, cameras and more importantly, to us, our audio components. Included in the original description are protocols for the pristine transfer of audio over USB. Great care and sensitivity went into this design. Consequently, a computer connected to a USB-enabled digital-to-analogue converter can outperform the best compact disc players available today. AudioQuest is committed to contributing products that honour USB’s ability to deliver state-of-the-art performance on this new and wonderful frontier.
AudioQuest has been the largest cable supplier to the high-end specialist market for several decades and is sold in over sixty countries. Founder Bill Lowe is especially pleased that this success has been possible despite his insistence that the foundation of the company, and the foundation of AudioQuest marketing, must be the performance of the product and when he visited Audio Trends a couple of years back we were convinced of this by his genuine sincerity. In the audio world, many professionals have learned that it is not always convenient to listen to the products they sell … they might learn something they don’t want to know! Bill has always understood the challenge of basing the existence of AudioQuest on the performance of the product. However, to Bill, this is the only reasonable way to do business and the only acceptable way to combine his passion for music (and all things high performance), with his need to make a living.
