Bring the music from your computer to life, with the Cambridge DacMagic XS V2.


Your music, your way

Gone are the days of CD being the only way of listening to a new album. Now it comes in a variety of formats, with downloading a popular choice. Your computer is perfect for storing music, but with playback, less so. Often the quality of the built-in DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor) and headphone amplifiers leave a lot to be desired, failing to reproduce your music with the soul and character as intended by the artist. The Cambridge DacMagic XS V2 is the answer.

New style
The latest V2 version of the DacMagic XS brings with it a cool new style. The revised finish and logos give this pocket DAC an even more sophisticated style.

Music the way it was meant to be
Don't let the miniature size of the DacMagic XS V2 fool you. Cambridge Audio has managed to bring together a class-leading DAC and powerful headphone amplifier to breathe new life into your digital music in one small casing. Using a low jitter asynchronous USB connection along with support for USB Class 1 & 2 modes, DacMagic XS V2 connects using the highest quality USB connection with the least amount of distortion.

For PC or Mac
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 V2has all varieties covered. So as your music library evolves over time, the DacMagic XS V2 will have you covered.

Headphone amp
Along with the accomplished DAC, the DacMagic XS V2 is paired with a high quality headphone amplifier. Capable of providing up to 10 times more power than the headphone output found on most PCs and laptops it also has an on-board analogue volume control. Able to reproduce your music as faithfully as possible it provides a dynamic range and audio fidelity that is a league above what's possible on most PCs and laptops.

Compact and robust
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.

Powerful sounds from a small package - for the best music on the move, don't leave home without one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp enhancement of sound The DACMAGIC was plugged into the USB socket of a computer with a 'doubtful quality' sound card. The impact is immediate. Crisp detail in the sound presence, solid bass and total control of the volume output. It is used demonstrating Audio Visual sequences in a large hall and secondly is connected into my music system at home when operated from the computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound on Linited Budget I bought this under £30 a month ago and it has dramatically improved the quality of my music. I work from home and usually have classical music playing; and though I am often unaware of what is playing, sometimes a piece of music stops me from my focus and demands me to listen. This is much more so now as a result of using the DACMAGIC. I had to travel to Guildford to make my purchase as most stores don't seem to have any stock, but well worth the journey and especially at the price. I have never been an audiophile, mainly due to the cost! Now I am appreciating purer, clearer sound. I especially like to listen to baroque soprano singing. The voice is so much crisper. The one thing lacking? I need some better headphones, but with a birthday coming up maybe that will be the next step...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use with great sound. I managed to pick one of these up very reasonably from my local Richer Sounds to connect a mini pc in my office to a monitor audio amp. The first thing that struck my was the build quality and the second was that all I did was run a usb to micro usb cable to one end and a 3.5mm Jack to 2 phonos at the other and, he presto, hifi sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good I purchased the Cambridge Audio DACMAGIC after I saw it on sale in an advertisement from Richer Sounds. I normally listen to classic music while I work, being the source either CDs or from internet radio. I was very curious on how much improvement this little device, but solid built,could provide. It does not require a rocket science degree to plug it to your computer and start listening some music. It can't be easier. I was very pleased by the significant improvement of what I was listening, coming from something so small. In addition to the obvious amplification, there was a noticeable increase and quality without distortion. At that price, it was a real bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great price and sound quality Really happy with this diminutive but great quality of finish and sound. I can use it on my tablet with HiRes files. The sound is quite fabulous. Additional volume boost on headphones is a must. Absolutely recommend this product at below £50...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd best bang for buck upgrade Best value for money upgrade was 30 years ago when I swooped the bell wire speaker cable to solid core mains cable. Massive improvement and never beaten in terms of difference in sound improvement. The second was this Cambridge Audio USB DAC. Used with my old desktop computer, it appears to by-pass any internal processing and amplification and do this itself. The result is clearer higher end a lot tighter bass and it really does sound better. My computer is now my main music source. FLAC sounds good and if you can find the high bit rate BBC radio sources then you are all good. Used with NAD 7000 and B&W 620's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Realy nice DAC will transform your laptop audio Good sound and enough power to drive most headphones

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gadget I saw this online here at Richer Sounds and it was an instant purchase. Received a few days later. Easy set up via USB. Music sounded richer through headphones rather than through poor laptop speaker. Very useful volume control incorporated
