3 GREAT WAYS TO BUY
5 YEAR SUPERCARE - £12.95FREE 5 YEAR SUPERCARE

5 YEAR SUPERCARE COSTS JUST £9.99 ON ALL ITEMS UNDER £100, OR 10% OF PURCHASE PRICE ON ANYTHING OVER £100.

This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 5 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 5 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 5 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 5 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 CAN THE DACMAGIC 100 DO FOR YOU?

The purpose behind the DacMagic 100 is simple: to make your music sound better, whatever the digital source. For this reason, the DacMagic 100 will work with pretty much any digital music source you have. So, simply plug in your digital 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 also a USB connection for your computer, laptop or tablet. It also supports 24-bit/192kHz transfer for "better than CD quality" via USB. This means that music files stored on your PC, laptop, tablet or hard drive in top 24/192 quality can be streamed, uncompressed, through the DacMagic 100 and enhanced by its Digital to Analogue Conversion. Simply connect the DacMagic 100 to your existing Hi-Fi's AUX input and you're good to go.

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.

A VERY WELL CONNECTED SMALL BOX

Designed to be the perfect match for the Cambridge Audio iD100 digital dock, the DacMagic 100 is very neat and easy to find shelf space for. Yet, despite this, it still offers no fewer than 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 4.3 out of 5áby 17 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5áby Excellent DAC at price I bought this solely for connecting a laptop to my HiFi.It was to replace an older other brand DAC.The Dacmagic comes as default USB 1so needs to be made USB 2 by downloading a driver from Cambridge Audio.The instructions are a little vague and apparently you also need to change the output of your PC fro Direct Sound to Windows Audio Sound.This is where the manual (online) is lacking.I spent several hours trying to get it to output the highest quality 24 bit 192kbs setting.Eventually got it but surely this device should be plug and play?I would have given it 5 stars otherwise 08 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby Sparkling sound at a great price. Bought to revitalise digital music collection using Apple tv unit as streamer. Immediately noticed a better sound quality, not so flat and definitely brighter. Cannot go wrong for the price. 01 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Superb DacMagic 100 This is without doubt an outstanding DAC. It looks superb and is extremely well made. The sound is exemplary for the money - I use it with my Desktop PC System connected to Roth Oli Powa powered Speakers and the Matching Roth subwoofer, both bought of course from Richer Sounds . It produces a rich and warm soundstage with plenty of depth and ambience playing Classical Music from my extensive iTunes Library. As a VIP Member I bought the Dacmagic 100 for the unbelievable price of ú149.95. Richer sounds as usual provided a really first class buying experience. Delivery was next day by the best Courier in the Business - DPD!! All in all yet another tremendous purchase from the HiFi Audio Kings at Richer Sounds! 31 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Cambridge Audio Dacmagic 100 I had listened to a friend's system with a DAC and was very impressed - that started the ball rolling. I have an Arcam Alpha 7SE CD player feeding a valve amplifier and back loaded horn speakers. I was already pleased with the setup but adding the Cambridge Audio Dacmagic has added another dimension the music: the sound is more open, clearer and even added a little more base - I'm very pleased with this DAC. 30 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great little product works well Excellent sound for the price.works well with a yamaha cd player Cambridge audio np30. 26 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Very impressed :-) Had this a few weeks now and am very impressed! I have it between my airstream wireless receiver and Rotel ra-03 amp, it makes a huge difference in soundstage and all round musical enjoyment. I'm using Rega R3 speakers and am throughly impressed with this little box :-) Get one! 27 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great cost effective upgrade to PC soundcard. This well made DAC provides a big upgrade in sound quality over a PC soundcard, but be sure to read all instructions including info on Cambridge Audio website to get the best out of it. You must use in USB 2.0 mode, the sound quality if better than just using it out on the box in plug and play mode. Its easy to do. 25 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 doesn't work with optical-cable + airplay Trying to beam music from laptop -> airport express -> dacmagic (via optical cable) -> amp. I get dropouts every minute or so, which I don't get at all if I beam music from laptop->airport and take the analogue output straight to the amp. No point having the dacmagic :-( 18 January 2015
