Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus overview

  • 1Description

The black Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus combines a digital-to-analog converter, preamplifier, and headphone amplifier to offer high-fidelity playback for digital audio signals from your computer, TV, and other devices. It employs twin Wolfson WM8740 24-bit chips used in a dual-differential configuration, as well as proprietary ATF2 24-bit / 384 kHz upsampling technology to deliver a natural sound with low jitter and enhanced stereo imaging, to help you enjoy the most out of your sound system and headphones.

The DacMagic Plus is equipped with two digital inputs both with a choice of S/PDIF co-axial and TOSLINK optical connectors, and a USB audio input to stream music from a Windows or Mac computer. Analog outputs to your power amp or powered speakers include two balanced XLR connectors and a pair of gold-plated RCA phono connectors. For recording applications, the two SPDIF co-axial and TOSLINK optical digital outputs pass through the selected digital source with no upsampling performed.

The unit features an external USB input for a BT100 Bluetooth receiver (available separately), which allows audio to be streamed and upsampled from any paired Bluetooth device. The DacMagic Plus ships with a USB cable, power adapter, US/UK/EU power plugs, four rubber feet, and a vertical rubber stand.
