For over 40 years, Dragoslav Colich’s (Drag+On+Fire) research has been dedicated to planar magnetic physics, material science, and industrial design.
As one of the founders and Chief Technology officer of Audeze LLC, “Dr C”, as he is known, has patented revolutionary planar magnetic designs that consistently set new performance benchmarks for headphones, winning numerous awards and being recognized as among the best, if not the best, headphones in the world.
Building upon his lifetime of expertise, we are confident the Dragonfire Acoustics Mini Dragons define the state-of-the-art in professional, full-range nearfield monitoring.
Lovingly handmade in Southern California, USA, each system is carefully tested and personally approved by Dr C before shipping.
With 1500% faster acceleration and 50x more driver area than a 14 x 1.5 cm ribbon mid-tweeter, the Mini Dragons deliver direct sound with precise imaging & accurate frequency, phase, & impulse response
Planar Magnetic Coherency
Compared to conventional point sources that radiate, ripple, and reflect, planar waveforms propagate coherently along the originating plane like the light of a
Light-As-Air Cryogenically Treated Diaphgram
Aerospace-grade Polyimide film only 1.8 microns thick is cryogenically treated in liquid nitrogen at -196℃ (-321℉), laser-traced and dynamically tensioned into a uniform driving surface
Dipole polar pattern inverse-phase cancels with its own backwave to reduce room reflections, eliminate diffractions, and transcend traditional box artifacts
Fatigue Free At Every SPL
Unlike speakers with variable impedance curves that must be energized past a threshold to produce their band-limited response, the Mini Dragons play the same response throughout their SPL range
1.8 Tesla Flux Density
High temperature rare earth N48H-grade Neodymium magnets are sintered, assembled, and arrayed into a patented push-pulll dual-pole magnetic circuit with peak 1.8 Tesla induction
High Resolution 4-Channel Power Amplifier. Housed in a matching anodized aluminum enclosure, the MD-4 is a hand-built globally adaptable 2-input/4-output High Capacitance Class-D amplifier (250W RMS/channel) with balanced analog XLR and RCA connections.
4x 250W RMS Amplifier
1kW burst 70v rail voltage full power to
20 kHz without high frequency
Dynamic Power Reserves

Compact Actively Powered Long Excursion 8” Woofer & 8” Passive Radiator for seamless low frequency extension.
High-speed long-excursion low distortion custom woofer
180 watts RMS
Custom long-excursion passive radiator tuned to 30 Hz resonance
30 to 500 Hz
SHD Studio Digital Preamplifier
Digital Preamplifier and Processor with Dirac Live Digital Room Correction, DSP Toolbox, Volumio Network Streamer, and Headphone Amplifier
Custom Built for Dragonfire by our friends MiniDSP, the SHD Studio ("Streaming High Definition") digital audio processor integrates a digital interface (AES-EBU/SPDIF/TOSLINK/USB), network streamer, and headphone amplifier with an Analog Devices 450MHz Share DSP processor to optimize the embedded Dirac Live Room Correction Algorithm
Using the included UMIK-1 USB Measurement Microphone, SHD Studio, and Dirac Live Calibration Software, the frequency, phase, and impulse response of the Mini Dragon System may be measured and corrected to optimize the sound for any space.
The standard color of Mini Dragons is Titanium and they are also available as a custom order in Gold or Black by request
