"It looks good, is easy to use, sounds great and has list of uses longer than your arm: the Stream Magic 6 is an unequivocal success." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

SIMPLY THE BEST AUDIO SPEC IN ITS CLASS

In terms of its audio spec, the Stream Magic 6 is currently without rival and features the 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 digital files "stretches" the music 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 every deep breath, squeaky chair and flutter of sheet music; in short, it's like being there for real!

STREAM YOUR MUSIC IN THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE QUALITY - BETTER THAN CD!

However you experience digital music, the idea behind the Stream Magic 6 is to get the very best sound quality and ease of access from it. First off there's the streaming capability. By either using a wireless* or Ethernet home hub connection you can access your stored music on NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive, laptop or PC. What's more, the Stream Magic 6 makes it easy to access. Using a simple file sharing system called UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play), set-up is simple and there's no further software required. Where the Stream Magic 6 really scores over similar network streaming devices is in its ability to playback very high quality audio files, including 24-bit FLAC and WAV files. In practise this means that, provided you don't mind using up extra storage space on your hard drive, you can now stream music that's better quality than CD.

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR PC'S STORED MUSIC WITH THE 24/192 COMPATIBLE USB

Connect to the rear-mounted USB socket and you can stream music files from your PC at the highest quality possible - 24-bit/192kHz. Both kernel streaming and ASIO standards are accepted. (Apple computers support up to 24-bit/192kHz USB transfer natively and a free driver makes this possible from Windows PCs).

OPTIONAL BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY

The Cambridge Audio Stream Magic 6 is fully compatible with the BT100 Bluetooth receiver. Simply pair the receiver up with your smart phone, tablet or any other Bluetooth media device and then stream your stored music or music streaming services via top quality Bluetooth aptX. Although not quite as good, in terms of sound quality, as the other streaming methods, it provides flexibility and is ideal for streaming stored music from smartphones or tablets, making it perfect for parties!

GREAT FOR INTERNET RADIO STREAMING AND STREAMING SERVICES

The Cambridge Audio Stream Magic 6 will also let you access Internet radio and streaming music services without the need for your PC or Mac to be switched on. Again, it's the manner in which Cambridge Audio have refined the user interface that makes the Stream Magic 6 special here. Using a new and specially developed site called Stream Magic, the '6' accesses 20,000 Internet radio stations that have been assessed for their reliability and performance - including popular services such as the BBC iPlayer Radio, Pandora and Rhapsody.

STREAM MAGIC CONTROL FOR YOUR APPLE OR ANDROID DEVICE

With a free Apple/Android app you have effortless control over the radio stations with the comfort of your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad or Android device. Stream Magic also seamlessly manages all your streaming content and is, in effect, a very user friendly way of bringing together and controlling all your digital sources. Stream Magic will now even control the volume on a compatible Cambridge Audio amplifier or receiver.

BUILT-IN PRE-AMP - JUST ADD ACTIVE SPEAKERS!

If you're seeking quality hi-fi from a minimal system then the built-in pre-amp will appeal. Simply add active speakers via the digital or analogue outputs and you'll be able to control the volume and balance control via the Stream Magic.

FULLY CONNECTED, INCLUDING XLR BALANCED

When it comes to connectivity the Stream Magic 6 is, yet again, at the top of the class. The highlight is the addition of XLR balanced outputs. When used with a compatible amplifier, such as the Cambridge Audio 851A, these connections give the ultimate link possible, with greatly superior levels of shielding. Added to this there are USB inputs on both the front and rear, plus a third, Type B input for the direct connection of your PC or Mac. Both optical and coaxial digital sockets are provided for both inputs and outputs. This lets you connect up other digital components and take advantage of the superior quality DAC built into the Stream Magic 6. Finally, the choice of either Ethernet or wi-fi compatibility gives the ultimate flexibility in how you connect the Stream Magic 6 to your network.

For those that have embraced the new age of digital and streamed music but don't want to sacrifice genuine hi-fi sound quality, the Stream Magic 6 is simply the best in its class.

*wireless/wi-fi not recommended for 24 bit streaming due to the variable speed of wi-fi networks due to environmental and other factors. Users streaming 24 bit files should ideally use a wired connection.
