The Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus does the seemingly impossible and improves upon a legend!

THE BEST JUST KEEPS GETTING 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!

THE PURPOSE OF THE DACMAGIC PLUS

The purpose behind the DacMagic Plus is simple: to make your music sound better, whatever the digital source. For this reason, the DacMagic Plus is now attuned to more of your music sources than ever. As before, you can 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 ahead of what you'd expect from CD. The USB connection for your computer is still there but on the latest DacMagic it now supports 24-bit transfer for "better than CD quality". This means that 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 Digital to Analogue Conversion.

DACMAGIC BENEFITS NOW AVAILABLE FOR YOUR PHONE

One of the most exciting features about the Plus model is 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. At last, convenience meets quality!

SIMPLY THE BEST SPEC IN ITS CLASS

In this respect, the DacMagic Plus starts spectacularly well with highest quality digital circuitry possible at its price. Twin Wolfson WM8740 DACs, implemented in a dual differential mode are complemented by a new Anagram Technologies AFT2 24 bit/384 kHz up-sampling circuit. Up-sampling conventional CD "stretches" the format to give the highest resolution possible. It also aids standard 24-bit/192kHz recordings with a faster sampling rate for less jitter.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR SOUND QUALITY

Up-sampling sound gives a smoother, more relaxed sound quality with added detail. You'll also notice enhanced depth of sound 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!

THIS TIME IT'S MORE THAN JUST A DAC

Not content with producing the best sounding DAC in its class, Cambridge Audio have added a few extras that make the Plus so much more than just a DAC. First off, the DacMagic Plus comes with a dedicated headphone amp and volume control. Much higher quality than a standard headphone socket, this is truly the way to go for fans of cans. More revealing, more dynamic and with less noise, the headphone output gives your cans a whole new lease of life. In addition to this, the DacMagic Plus 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by More dynamic sound than Audiolab M-Dac I owned one of these but couldn't get the BT 100 to work so returned it for a refund. I then auditioned the highly praised Audiolab (big fan, have 2 Audiolab amps) and the Rega Dac, both excellent products but neither to my ears any better and both more expensive. I would love to buy another Dac Magic Plus, just waiting for a reply direct from Cambridge Audio on the BT 100 issue. Staff at Richersounds in Guildford are superb! 27 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Class DAC - don't be taken in by some of the audiophile hype A really first class converter - gives excellent stereo imaging and first class playback quality - even via the usb. Particularly impressive when switched to USB II and playing out from a macintosh computer although I'm sure a windows PC would work equally well. Really very good value for money when compared with DACs two or three times the price. 19 May 2013

If this is your first order with us, please ensure that the only address you enter is the credit card billing address, as this is the only address to which we can deliver. If you have previously placed an order on our website, you will be offered an alternative delivery address if your order value is
less than £500. Also, ensure you only click the submit order button once, as it will take a minute or so to process.

If after this time you have still to take receipt of your order email webaftersales@richersounds.com providing your order number, name, address, and brief details of what you ordered. We strive to answer all queries within a working day, although at busy times we do ask that you bear with us.
