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 Brought my amp into the digital world The DACMagic 100 works perfectly auto adjusting for sample rate and for just over 100 quid means I can use my existing amp instead of shelling out £800 for a digital amp.

I purchased a Cambridge Audio DACmagic100, connected to my computer, installed the driver for 24bit/192 khz audio added an RCA adapter and connected my Sony 1000m3 and it sounds great! I did have to change the unit from USB audio 1 to USB audio 2, but easily done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic upgrade of my hifi system The fantastic Richer Sounds team helped me buy a great system system about four years ago, when a purchased a Yamaha AS301 amplifier, Dali Zensor 3 speakers and a Cambridge Audio CXC CD transport. The sound has always been really good, but decided it was time to upgrade. After researching the Cambridge Audio amplifier range, I started reading about DACs and at just over £100 decided the DAC Magic gave me a piece of the Cambridge kit with solid reviews on the sound. I’m pleased to say that this little box has transformed my system. The sound from the CD player definitely has more character and depth, so very happy there. I was astounded by the sound quality when I ran Tidal (Hifi and Masters) through the USB input. All I was after was a good sound stage and instrument separation, but I’m hearing things I have not heard in music that has been played over and over again for years. In all honesty, my research led me towards the Schiit Modi 3, but these are difficult to find in the UK. If you are looking for your first DAC or are thinking about giving your sound system a boost, this is a great place to start. You won’t be disappointed! A word of caution: I got bogged down in the complex discussions about sound quality while researching DACs - all I’ll say about that is the production quality of the music plays a major role in hearing any difference. I personally find some Tidal Hifi tracks sound better or the same as Masters, but there are some Masters tracks that sound exceptional. My advice - get a good setup and trust your ears with the music that you love. The DAC Magic really lets me enjoy my music in all formats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot in a small box I knew this was at the lower budget end of the DAC market, but wanted to explore updating the digital output of my CD player and playing music directly from my PC via USB. The Dacmagic 100 has good input options and with the right cables, after a running-in period it sounds really good. Smooth with lots of detail and good bass, not shrill at all. There are better more infinitely expensive DACs on the market but this is a really entry point product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good DAC Bought the Cambridge audio dacmagic 100 two or three weeks ago, and i can definitely say its a pretty good DAC especially for the price at about £130. For a budget DAC it must be one of the best you can buy. It might be a good idea to avoid using bright sounding interconnect cables, and use cables that are more neutral, or warmer in sound, especially when the DAC is new and not run in.Cables with a smooth, or very smooth treble would probably work well with this DAC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Product - Great Sound I upgraded from a smaller Drgaonfly DAC to the Cambridge Audio Dacmagic 100 and I love it. Great value for money.
