”Cambridge’s top-of-the-line DAC is a well-armed, high-performing all-rounder.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

System boost

This high quality DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) is a small box that works wonders with your entire digital music system. Using premium ESS DACs, the DacMagic 200M maximises the sound from all your digital sources. Wire up or go wireless with Bluetooth, the 200M gives high levels of system flexibility. On top of all this, it’s also a high quality headphone amp, making it an indispensable upgrade for all headphone fans.

Dual ESS ES9028Q2M DACs – a big name in sound
ESS are a top name in digital technology, with their chips used in the highest quality audio and AV around. With the DacMagic 200M, twin DACs are used in dual-mono configuration. This means you get separate DACs for the left and right channel that in turn gives better musical separation and a wider, more realistic soundstage.

Supports a wide range of digital formats, including MQA
The DacMagic 200M supports a wide range of digital files, right up to 32bit/768kHz when connected via USB (24bit/192kHz coaxial, 24bit/96kHz optical and 16bit via Bluetooth). The USB input also supports native DSD files up to 512. MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) – as used by TIDAL Masters – is also compatible.

Digital filters to tailor the sound
Featuring a 3-way, digital filter, the DacMagic 200M lets you tailor the sound to suit your preference. Choose between ‘Fast’, ‘Slow’ and ‘Short Delay’ filters for the sound that bests suits the music, your system, room and taste.

Fully connected inputs
Switch between four inputs for full system flexibility. Two of the digital inputs offer the choice of optical or coaxial. These are ideal for a CD player, network streamer, TV or other device with a digital output. The other digital inputs are Bluetooth and USB.

Bluetooth input for wireless connectivity
As standard, the DacMagic 200M now comes with a Bluetooth receiver built-in. Pair with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or other device and enjoy a huge boost in sound – wirelessly. Using the DacMagic 200M between your Bluetooth music source and hi-fi or active speaker system improves the dynamic response, detail and sheer realism of sound. It’s simply the best way to listen to music from your mobile.

Connect your computer via USB
For the ultimate in computer audio, connect via USB. Supporting audio files up to studio quality, 32bit/768kHz and DSD512, the USB connection provides the best quality link. For music stored on your computer network or streamed from your PC, Mac or laptop, this is simply the best way of hearing every last drop of detail.

Balanced outputs for studio quality sound
Featuring XLR Cannon, balanced outputs, the DacMagic 200M offers studio grade connectivity with your amp. XLR balanced connectivity provides a solid, ‘locked in’ connection and the ability to run a far longer cable, without a drop off in performance. For amps without XLR inputs, the DacMagic 200M also features standard RCA phono outputs.

Also includes a top quality headphone amp
More than just a DAC, the DacMagic 200M also features a premium headphone output. Using Class A/B amplification, with a low impedance output, the DacMagic 200M powers your headphones with authority. High in power and low in distortion, the amp gets the very best from all types of headphones, maximising your listening experience.

Put the magic into your system, with the Cambridge Audio DacMagic 200M.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right back to the future. I was looking for a DAC that would cope with input primarily from a MacBook using Apple's Lossless music. Not only does the DacMagic 200M do this but it also has a Bluetooth facility (if I ever want to use my mobile as a source) and also a headphone amp which my system preamp doesn't have. I have now spent the past few weeks listening to as wide a variety of music as possible, not just to check out my choices but to enjoy the sound quality; Jazz, Classic Rock, Classical Orchestral and sometimes where possible, I have compared it to what I have on vinyl. The DacMagic is different from my vinyl sound but so is the CD player. However, tonight I started a bit of music browsing and picked the blues track "Tin Pan Alley" from "Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble". I was so impressed that I listened to it twice! The sound stage was superb with impressive guitar and drum transients and a really solid bass. I've only really experienced that kind of quality with some half-speed mastered vinyl recordings I have. It's still early days using the unit but it is unobtrusive, well laid out and has now given my hi-fi a modern versatility it didn't have until now. It more than compliments all the other sources I use and since I have experimented with the digital filters I've found that the 'slow' filter seems to work best with my set up, the sound stage is 'correct' if that makes any sense. Cambridge Audio was a respected company when I bought my Spendor BC1 speakers way back in the 80s; its nice to see that the tradition of quality audio is still continuing today especially as this new plus old combination has brought my separates right back to the future and made me very happy indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed with the sound quality Decided to upgrade my D/A convertor for a little project mixing/listening room due to it's ability to support MQA and 192kHz which has come in handy for Tidal and mixing (not sure when or where I'll be listening to 768kHz audio anytime soon but it's useful to have the capability; future proofing I guess). It's quite a punchy sounding amp, quite clear and precise and seems to pair well with the Dynaudio LYD 7's that I running so far. A feature I would find useful is if you could switch to the headphone stage on the source selector so you don't have to keep plugging and unplugging the headphone cable when you want to switch between those and the monitors. Can't really comment on the Bluetooth side of things as I haven't spent much time with that feature. Overall a great dac which I'd recommend. I think to upgrade from this, in a home studio environment, I think I'd need to start looking at the rack mounted D/A converters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but lacking the wow factor I already had a Dac Magic Plus from 3 years ago, and this was bought as an untested replacement. Also bought a Dragonfly Cobalt as a comparison. The 200M turned out to be only a mildly better dac, whilst the Cobalt blew them both out of the water. This is a very personal choice of sound style, but with my Grado 325 headphones, the Cobalt was the clear winner. I also like that I can take the Dragonfly with me if I go away, rather than stuck to a desktop.
