The red Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS is a portable USB DAC and headphone amplifier designed to enhance the sound of your desktop or laptop computer when monitoring with headphones at home or on the go. It features a 24-bit D/A converter and a high-output headphone amplifier, which deliver clear and detailed audio with deep bass at ten times the volume of a typical computer headphone output, ideal for listening to your favorite music, films, streaming services, games, and more.
The DacMagic XS quickly connects to your computer's USB port via the included micro-USB cable, while the headphones connect to the 3.5mm headphone jack. The volume is easily adjusted with the simple fingertip controls. Alternatively, you can also use the unit to connect your computer to a Hi-Fi amplifier and listen to your music on speakers.
For maximum audio quality, the DacMagic XS can run in USB Class 2 mode to bypass the computer operating system's audio path and avoid unwanted interference and re-sampling artifacts.
