Cambridge Audio DacMagic 100 overview

  • 1Description

Many home entertainment products these days provide an abundance of features, be they Blu-ray players, TVs and set top boxes, or computers. What they often lack is a high end converter when decoding audio signals. For music devices that have a digital output, the DacMagic 100 from Cambridge Audio significantly improves the sound quality of these units by providing two channels of high end digital to analog conversion. The result is audio with greater detail, sparkling clarity, and reduced distortion.

The unit features the very latest digital to analog converter that delivers studio-master-quality audio from sources up to 24-bit/192 kHz. USB implementation also means high-resolution digital audio files stored on a computer can be shared with a Hi-fi for a level of sound quality far in excess of CD. Three different digital connectivity options are available (coaxial and optical S/PDIF and USB) providing the ability to connect four devices simultaneously. An easy set-up makes the DacMagic 100 a true digital music enhancement hub.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from add depth to already good sound I bought the Da agic to connect my smartphone to my stereo system (via USB, requires OTG cable and USB Audio Player app)it preforms great. I then tried to connect my Cambridge Audio CD30 player (2008)to Rotel amp and B&W 685 speakers and the sound was so much better. Highly recommended.
