AudioQuest Beetle - Optical-Bluetooth-USB Digital-to-Analog Converter

The AudioQuest Beetle sits in the palm of the hand and the aesthetics are a long way from that of real life Beetle. While there are plenty of USB DACs out there, the Beetle is special in that it also offers Bluetooth and optical inputs. Power comes from either the host computerís USB port or the linear power supply that ships inside the box meaning you can use it with devices that don't have a USB output.

Inputs

There are 3 input option on the Beetle:

  • USB (up to 24bit/96kHz)
  • Toslink (up to 24bit/96kHz)
  • Asynchronous Bluetooth

The D/A conversion is exacted by an ESS 9010 and of the three filters on the chip, AudioQuest have opted for minimum phase.

AudioQuest Beetle Compatibility

This little Beetle also contains some new cutting edge technology in the form of its USB microcontroller from Arizona-based Microchip Technology. AudioQuest claims improved performance in the form of a measurably lower noise floor as well as a lower power requirement compared to their previous TI 1020b-based solution found in the Dragonfly.

The Toslink optical input is aimed squarely at devices such as the Apple TV or the Sonos Connect and sound output when the Beetle is used is a great improvement.

The audio ouput is a 3.5mm audio jack allowing you to connect to headphones or speakers.

Features

  • High performance Optical input, coupled with ESS's 9010 Time Domain Jitter Eliminator
  • Asynchronus USB with Streamlength technology
  • Asynchronus Bluetooth with Streamlength BT technology
