YOUR MUSIC LIBRARY
The way we listen to and the format that our music resides in has changed dramatically over the years. Long gone are the days of CD being the only way of listening to your favourite band's new album. Now you can get that same album in a plethora of formats with downloading being the preferred choice for many, with the computer becoming the sole storage and playback for your entire music collection. While being perfect for storing thousands of albums, playing them back has never been the strong suit of most PC's. Often the quality of the built-in DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor) and headphone amplifiers leave a lot to be desired, failing to faithfully reproduce your music with the soul and character as intended by the artist. The Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS is the answer.
MUSIC THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE
Don't let the miniature size of the DacMagic XS fool you, despite its compact nature it has been imbued with the same hi-fi characteristics of its bigger siblings. Cambridge Audio have managed to bring together a class leading DAC and powerful headphone amplifier to breathe new life into your digital music. Utilising a low jitter asynchronous USB connection along with support for USB Class 1 & 2 modes, DacMagic XS connects using the highest quality USB connection with the least amount of distortion. Both Mac and PC platforms are supported. Regardless of whether your music consists of MP3 files or high definition 24-bit/192kHz FLAC files, the DacMagic XS has all varieties covered. You can be assured that as your music library evolves over time, the DacMagic XS will have you covered.
Along with the accomplished DAC, the DacMagic XS is paired with a high quality headphone amplifier. Capable of providing up to 10 times more power than the headphone output found on most PC's and laptops. An on board analogue volume control provides fine control over this power. Both combine to reproduce your music as faithfully as possible, providing a dynamic range and audio fidelity that is a league above what is possible on most PC's and laptops.
COMPACT AND ELEGANT
Crafted using high quality brushed aluminium, the DacMagic XS is both lightweight and strong. Its streamline design combined with its small size and weight ensures that it's just as suited for music on the go as it is for use at home. With power being provided by the USB connection, there's no need for batteries or an external power supply. As an elegant addition, the built-in LED changes colour corresponding to the input sample rate.
A small package with a performance that defies its dimensions, the Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS has all your digital music needs covered, on the road or at home.
