RE: About those Dragonfly DACs...

Even if they are able to make it work, I'd suspect that the power requirement would just eat up my iPhone's battery, assumimg that Tidal MQA would even be available on an iPhone. The DFB is OK now, it takes more power than just straight headphones, but still quite usable.

Maybe the best solution is to do the first unfold in the phone and let the DAC just work on 24/96. I don't expect "perfect" sound from the phone anyway. For that matter, I'm mostly on the NYC subway when I use it for music, not exactly a relaxing, quiet environment. I get looks from people when I have it plugged in with that green glowing dragonfly.
