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 Works well with Android tablet This works well both with an android tablet and a PC. Recognized immediately by both and greatly improves the sound quality. It also small and neat enough not to get in the way when hanging off a USB port.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved sound range and depth. Took me a little while to get set up as am not the best at that dirt if thing. Bit of reading and couple of videos and wow!! Improved the sound from my pc straight away . Music sounded cleaner and more vivid, more warmth. Would recommend, especially at 39 quid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simply the beast ..., for that price?! I've could offer to anyone who's got sensitive ears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference I just plugged and played. It boosted the sound quality and I was very satisfied, not used it on my windows system yet, but expecting the same results. It took my tango music to another level and was well received at my dances/milongas

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, neat and, simple - excellent quality & excellent product I am pleased with the difference this makes when comparing it to the headphone output from laptop. Night and day in terms of volume but also a big improvement in detail. One thing I would add is that I have used another DAC which seemed to emphasis bass which after a while became tiring, not the case with the Cambridge XS V2. I purchased this on a price reduction making this exceptional value. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A genuine no-brainer.. DAC? What on earth do you need one of those for..? Well, after parting with £49 for this (admittedly very elegant) small box, all I can say is that it absolutely breathes new life into any audio from my iMac through Bose Companion 20 speakers. The difference is difficult to describe, but listening to the Sgt Pepper remix album even in 'low res' streaming mode is a revelation. It's just a bargain - get one whilst it's still at this daft price. BTW the staff at Richers Sheffield are always spot on - makes a refreshing change to other high street retailers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat and works great with Nvidia Shield TV I needed to add an analog output to my Nvidia Shield TV (Android TV) as it's only got a HDMI output and I don't have a modern AV receiver. I plugged this in, it worked straight away and sounds great. Very nicely built, very compact and good value for money. Ticked all the boxes for me!
