AudioQuest DragonFly Cobalt Review

“A little piece of trivia: Mama Cass Elliot and Keith Moon both died in the same room in Harry Nilsson’s London flat. Four years apart. Now on with the show. Harry Nilsson’s A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night is one of my favorite albums. I listen to it in spurts as I do Taylor Swift’s 1989 album (gilty pleasure). I have this album on my laptop and my iPhone for my offline listening pleasure. I press play and don’t stop listening until the final note of track twelve. The album’s opener, Lazy Moon begins with a smooth Nilsson vocal and Gordon Jenkins conducted orchestra sending the listener floating through the air via violins and strings similar to when an Academy Award is presented and the winner walks up to the stage. My Etymotic and Cobalt combo reproduce this sonic delight pretty well and about as good as I’d expect from a portable system. Nilsson’s voice doesn’t quite have the enveloping full range that I’m used to with my full-sized audio system, but that’s to be expected. Above all, this track, and entire album, has a beautiful bloom to it through the Cobalt.”
