The Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus does the seemingly impossible and improves upon a legend!
The best just gets better
With a raft of improvements the Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus is still the best way of improving the sound from your hi-fi, AV system, PC, laptop and now, even your headphones!
Massive improvements to the sound of your digital sources
The purpose behind the DacMagic Plus is simple: to make your music sound better, whatever the digital source. Plug in your Blu-ray, DVD or CD player via optical or coaxial connections (there are two of each) and enjoy up-sampled music quality that's better than CD. The USB connection for your computer supports 24-bit transfer for 'better than CD quality'. So music files stored on your PC or laptop in top 24/192 quality can be streamed, uncompressed, through the DacMagic Plus and enhanced by its DAC.
Bluetooth, to work with your phone or tablet
The Plus model has the option of being able to stream music from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. With the optional BT100 audio receiver connected, simply link up via high quality apt-X or standard Bluetooth and stream your stored or streaming tunes from your device to the DacMagic and on into your hi-fi.
The best specification in its class
The DacMagic Plus has the highest quality digital circuitry possible at its price. Twin Wolfson WM8740 DACs, implemented in a dual differential mode, are complemented by an Anagram Technologies AFT2 24 bit/384 kHz up-sampling circuit. Up-sampling conventional CD 'stretches' the format to give the highest resolution possible, and also aids standard 24-bit/192kHz recordings with a faster sampling rate for less jitter.
How does it sound?
Up-sampling gives a smoother, more relaxed sound quality with added detail. You'll also notice enhanced depth and a more natural quality without the 'edge' that can afflict digital music. You'll hear every detail, including the odd cough, squeaky chair and flutter of sheet music; in short, it's like being there for real!
More than a DAC
First off, the DacMagic Plus comes with a dedicated headphone amp and volume control. More revealing, more dynamic and with less noise, the headphone output gives your cans a whole new lease of life. In addition it comes with a new digital pre-amp function. Combined with the volume control, you can now connect directly to active speakers or a power amp for a shorter signal path and superior sound quality.
With more features than ever but the same performance boosting appeal, the DacMagic Plus is more than magic, it's magic plus!
