Richer Sounds exclusive model.

Better value than ever but with the same class-leading performance, the Cambridge Audio DacMagic 100 is a true audio bargain.


What does the DacMagic 100 do?

Whatever the digital source, the DacMagic 100 will make your music sound better. Simply plug in your 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 a USB connection for your computer, laptop or tablet and it also supports 24-bit/192kHz transfer, so music files stored on your laptop in top 24/192 quality can be streamed, uncompressed, and enhanced by its DAC.

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.

Well connected
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 5 out of 5 by from You just can't go wrong I have 2 of these and am about to go to store to buy another one. Just incredible for the price and completely transform your music. There's just no comparison before and after. I've listened to the more expensive DACs and I can't tell the difference. I'm sure some people will be able to, but if you are more interested in listening to the music rather than listening to your system, this is great. My first one is still going strong after 6 years and the second is 3 years in. You can tell how good they are because people don't sell them often - check on Ebay and there aren't many! I know because I just checked and so I'm off to just get a new one! By the way I mainly use them around the house paired up to a gen 3 Apple TV via optical and into a hifi amp/receiver and speakers to stream music from my phone. OK not 'pure' multi-room but if you have proper hi-fi set up I think this is probably the most cost effective way to stream at a really high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little DAC This item was been around for some time but is still a really nice little DAC with all inputs and outputs you need for a decent quality basic set up (I am using mine with a CA 651a, Tannoy Precision bookshelves and Wharfedale Diamond sub, connected via Toslink from ASUS soundcard). Delivery was fast and efficient. Good experience all round from Richer Sounds - thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Sounding & Value DAC I needed a DAC for my laptop and with up to £200 to spend I was recommended this one in-store and wasn't disappointed. It looked and felt like a quality piece of kit and when I plugged it in at home it sounded very impressive. The music I ran through it was FLAC quality and was immediately elevated to a clearer more defined level with much greater detail, exactly what I was looking for. Cambridge Audio make real quality kit and this is no exception, and really good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small in size but mighty in performance! I bought this to enable me to stream music from my computer via usb but as it has a SPDIF input on the rear I plugged my cd player into it and what a difference it has made! The music is better defined in width and depth and has taken an already good sounding system to another level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up, easy to hear the benefits Purchased to sit between a Brennan hard drive (FLAC files) and my Onkyo amp. This small box was easy to set up and use and has brought a significant improvement to the quality of the music I am listening to. Well worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says Was a bit sceptical but went for a dac and as dacmagic was cheapest and I have Cambridge dab and cd already went for it. Easy to set up and use. Don’t forget you only get out what goes in. Poor source material won’t automatically sound better but it will improve good material. More detail and better transient response.
