The Cambridge DACMagic Plus offers very high performance for the price. Ideal for use from a PC or any source that has a digital out this little unit is a must have for anyone who is serious about PC based audio. The built in headphone jack suits efficient headphones very well, but may not be adequate for more demanding headphones.
Available in Black or Silver. Please specify colour preference in comments when ordering. Improving on a legend is never easy, but Cambridge Audio has gone back to the drawing board to create the DacMagic Plus with exciting new features, wireless device connectivity, and best of all, significantly enhanced audio performance.
We live in a world of immense musical opportunity. Computers, TVs and Blu-ray players can all deliver audio to your hi-fi system, but because they’re primarily designed to perform other functions, their audio outputs lack quality. But by simply connecting them to DacMagic Plus, you can bypass their inbuilt digital to analogue converters transforming their humdrum performance into something altogether more spectacular!
