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 Great, cost effective DAC! I bought this to connect my TV to an analogue amp with no digital input. In this configuration it works perfectly, is easy to use and sounds great. I would need to plug in a CD player to see how it compares to an internal DAC but based on the TV, I'm impressed. Feature wise it packs a lot of inputs in and I like the auto off feature. Initially it was a bit of a pain to switch on all the time but with the way things are going, am switching everything off when not in use anyway. Overall a great buy so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice desktop upgrade I bought this to bypass a humming 3.5mm stereo jack on a mac/amp/bookshelf desk system. There is some definite benefit to the sound clarity. And I have been able to have a play with some hi-res files tp see if I might try some more in the future. Nicely thought out user interface and display as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Splendid after sales service I was enormously impressed with the quality of service after I had purchased my DAC and initially had difficulties getting the item to work. The after sales team could not have been more patient and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great DAC - Excellent value and sound A great sounding DAC and a design classic. Yes it's old now, but it's just as good as newer DACs with more recent DAC chips. Easily competes with (and betters) DACs two to three times more expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product great retailer I bought a few weeks ago for a project where I had planned to repurpose a Mac Mini into a music server for my CD collection. I decided to use Audirvāna and dBpowereamp to rip and manage my FLAC files and the Cambridge Audio DAC did the business. Fantastic outcome and I am thrilled to bits. Still got 500+ CDs to rip !!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The DAC does a good job. After digitising my music collection the DAC has transformed the output going to my sound system..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solution to a longstanding problem I had been putting off upgrading for some time as I couldn't work out how to get the music I was streaming, now lossless, into my AV setup into my venerable Cyrus HiFi system. When I talked to Richer Sounds at Preston they instantly suggested using a DAC to bridge between my new TV with optical output and my Cyrus 111i amplifier and after some discussion we agreed on the DacMagic 100 as I didn't need a headphone output. It was easy to install and works wonderfully, I think it will really lift my enjoyment of music again.
