This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:

Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.

If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*

* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty.

Better value than ever but with the same class-leading performance, the Cambridge Audio DacMagic 100 is a true audio bargain.

What does the DacMagic 100 do?

Whatever the digital source, the DacMagic 100 will make your music sound better. Simply plug in your iPod dock, Blu-ray, DVD, TV or CD player via optical or coaxial connections and enjoy audio quality that's way ahead of what you might expect. There's a USB connection for your computer, laptop or tablet and it also supports 24-bit/192kHz transfer, so music files stored on your laptop in top 24/192 quality can be streamed, uncompressed, and enhanced by its DAC.

Class-leading sound quality
Whatever your music source, you'll enjoy genuine hi-fi quality sound by using the Cambridge Audio DacMagic 100. A Wolfson WM8742 24-bit DAC is teamed up with Cambridge Audio's wealth of digital engineering knowledge to create a sound that's vibrant, detailed and remarkably free from jitter. Jitter is especially prevalent on music sent via network devices or hard drives and can give the sound a harsh and unnatural quality.

Well connected
Designed to be the perfect match for the Cambridge Audio iD100 digital dock, the DacMagic 100 is very neat and easy to house, yet still offers three digital inputs. There are two coaxial inputs and a single optical one, all switchable from the front. Add to this the USB input and gold-plated analogue RCA outputs for connecting to your hi-fi and the DacMagic 100 has every angle covered.

Audiophile quality sound from your digital sources without having to spend a fortune? Now, Dac's magic!

Rated 4.4 out of 5áby 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Outstanding little box! The sound quality from this little dac is quit frankly incredible with a marked improvement in clarity and depth. No matter what source you use it provides clean, clear and accurate audio. I was most surprised that it made my denon 2910 dvd player, which cost ú600 ten years ago sound even better! Computer audio is a revelation, it sounds even better than disc sources, so i'll be playing ripped files from now on. A special word on richer's customer service. My initial dac had developed a fault so i took it along to the edinburgh branch and they replaced it straight away. You can't ask for any better than that! 02 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great features and build quality. It does a brilliant job - converting the optical TV output into my 5 pin DIN amp input. The sound is fantastic. 27 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5áby Great sounding little box at a great price. Bought the DAC magic box so I could connect my DVD player and my Apple TV to my analogue amplifier. Apple TV is connected via the optical cable, the DVD and the Cambridge audio iPod dock are connected via the co-ax connections. There is also a USB-b connection for the laptop and, after fiddling with the settings via the online manual, got the sampling rate up to 192khz for the laptop. Usefully, the DAC Magic has indicators so you can check the sampling rates. With CDs copied in high quality format, the sound reproduction is truly excellent (indistinguishable from an expensive CD player). The sound from all the other sources is very good. Did have a small problem in that two of the blue indicator lights failed after a year, but thanks to some truly excellent customer service (thanks Dan - helpline and Paddy - Oxford store) the unit was swapped for another and all is perfect. For a little neat and tidy box, it really does pack a punch. Well worth the money. 29 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Very impressive at this price. Great DAC. Bought this for connecting a Computer to hi- fi. I didn't expect it to make much difference to a pretty good Arcam CD player but the improvement is very noticeable. Looks the part and makes a massive difference to any digital source. 27 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent performance at a great price Looking for a DAC to play 24/192 files streamed from Qobuz through my iPad. There is nothing to compete with the Cambridge DAC Magic 100 under ú450. Also allows me to connect my DVD player to my amp via s/p diff and Talktalk YouView box via optical/toslink cable. Highly recommended. 25 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Super little box Makes such a difference - makes everything sound cleaner and crisper. Highly recommend product! 31 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Bargain DAC will revitalise your digital music collection Bought this amazing little DAC and a pair of Wharfdale 121's for ú99 each in the pre-Chritmas sale. Connected to Marantz CD 63KI and matching PM66KI amp with VDH analogue, QED digital cables and QED XT40 speaker cables. After a month's "burn-in" rediscovering my CD collection, I was impressed by the punchy open sound that is neither strident nor dull, big soundstage and lovely resolution that allows all elements of the music to sound just right somehow. However the best was yet to come. I bought an Apple USB/adapter for my IPad Air 2 and connected it to the DAC with a QED USB lead. A subscription to Tidal hi fi later and Iwas enjoying all the music I need at better than CD quality ... great right? Wrong!! ! I hadn't changed the USB setting to USB 2. When I! Resolution and soundstage massively increased. Just love this DAC! 27 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Magic, like it says on the box I am no HiFi expert but this unit is great. I have a good quality CD player and I can't tell the difference now, between playing music from my computer or the Cd direct. Sound is far superior to the output from a good quality sound card. 14 June 2015
