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 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but nothing special Bought this to connect my new Samsung TV to my stereo, which it does effectively. Soundwise it's slightly better than a 20 year old Audiolab CD player. I had hoped for more of an improvement in that time, but I guess this is budget kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely good value DAC. I purchase this DAC from Richersounds Middlesbrough Branch. Has usual the staff particularly Micheal were very helpful. The reason for the DAC , I recently purchased a Panasonic 50" 4k TV, it does not have analogue sound outputs. My HIFI gear is high end Rotel purchased in 1996 powering Tannoy 611's. The pre amp does not have a digital input hence the need for a DAC. This one fits well into the system. The sound from the Panasonic is now 5 star. Action films are Dynamic and clear speech. The TV optical output is connected into the DAC and the DAC output phono are connected into the pre-amp.Great sound would recommend to anyone a great upgrade on the TV sound.
