DacMagic 100

DIGITAL-ANALOG-WANDLER

Dank eines Wolfson 24-Bit-DACs, einem treiberlosen USB-Audio 1.0 Eingang mit 24 Bit/96 kHz sowie einem S/PDIF und TosLink-Digitaleingängen ist der DacMagic 100 in der Lage, Tonsignale von Ihrem Computer, iPod, Fernseher oder anderen digitalen Geräten wiederzugeben und dabei mit Detail, Tiefe und Klarheit für ein wahres Klangerlebnis zu sorgen.

UNVERFÄLSCHTE SIGNALVERARBEITUNG

Generell sind die Digital-Analog-Wandler in herkömmlichen digitalen Geräten eher schlecht und sind nicht in der Lage den besten Klang aus Ihren Quellen herauszuholen. Der DacMagic 100 greift das digitale Audiosignal Ihrer Geräte direkt ab und umgeht so deren Soundkarte oder DAC. Dann wird das Audiosignal mit unserer selbstentwickelten Technologie digital verarbeitet, was die Klangqualität dramatisch verbessert und Verzerrungen reduziert. Dies resultiert in größerer Detailtreue, klareren Höhen und einer größeren Tiefe für alle Ihre Audiosignale.

KOMPATIBILITÄT

Der DacMagic 100 ist sehr flexibel und unterstützt so gut wie all digitalen Dateiformate, einschließlich unkomprimierter Dateien von Ihrem Computer in höchster 24-Bit-Studioqualität. Mit drei verschiedenen digitalen Anschlüssen und der Möglichkeit vier Geräte gleichzeitig anzuschließen ist der DacMagic 100 eine wahres digitales Schaltzentrum. Die Einrichtung ist komplett intuitiv und erlaubt es Ihnen innerhalb von Minuten einen besseren Klang zu genießen.

“DER KLANG IST DAS WICHTIGSTE”-DESIGN

Wie alle unsere Produkte, wurde der DacMagic 100 von Grund auf vom Design-Team an unserem Hauptsitz in London entwickelt. Unsere Ingenieure haben eine unglaubliche Menge Detailarbeit an den Tag gelegt, um sicherzustellen, dass die Klangqualität das Hauptaugenmerk des Produktes ist. Beim DacMagic 100 gehörte dazu, den neuesten Digital-Analog-Wandler vom Marktführer Wolfson einzubauen.

DAC''s all sound the same?.

DIVERSITY

I spent the last 3 years listening to my digital music on a modest laptop, connected to a mid-range amp and speakers, and I was perfectly happy.

After researching online Forums and YouTube into digital audio, I got to thinking about an upgrade.

After comparing a much loved, well recorded track on my PC with the same track on CD player, I perceived a difference in sound quality, with the CD sounding better.
Theoretically, to my mind, they should have sounded identical, the only difference being that the PC track was being processed by a £18 DAC / Headphone Amp, that draws power from the PC via USB.

With such a vast and varied choice and price point in the DAC market, I struggled to choose, but eventually purchased the Cambridge Audio DacMagic 100, and the difference in sound quality is a vast improvement, now surpassing that of the audiophile quality CD player.
Much improved clarity across all frequencies, deeper soundstage, noticeable wider chanel separation leading to a much more enjoyable listen...

This Dac Just Keeps Getting Better

Grimsurfer

Three months into may DacMagic 100 experience and a few things to report:

1. Connect to pre-amp or integrated amp with high quality plugs and cables (made my own using Neutrik spring-loaded connectors and microphone cable). It makes a small, but noticable difference;

2. Digital carriers like an Apple Airport Express offer good results using a Toslink (optical) cable;

3. Digital sources, like an iPad transmitting over AirPlay, sound good. Just keep in mind that the bit depth and sample rates are limited;

4. Connecting an Apple laptop directly to the DacMagic using a USB cable is really easy -- no drivers needed. The Mac recognizes the DacMagic immediately... no drivers required;

5. Using source material 16/44k or better, delivered by a computer using a USB cable delivers astonishingly good results. The DacMagic does all the heavy lifting with regard to clocking the digital signal (if you don't know what this means, a simple explanation is that the DacMagic decodes the digital signal as precisely the same beat as the original master recording). This is where the DacMagic really shines -- reaching its highest level of performance and further enhancing the clarity, speed, and sound-stage of recorded material.

I continue to be impressed with this marvellous Dac. It keeps on surprising me, even after several months of regular use.

DacMagic 100 Rocks!

Grimsurfer

I've recently returned to audio, having passed most of the challenges working life presents. A recent upgrade of an SVS sub-woofer added tremendous bottom to my B&W satellites driven by a modest (and somewhat dated) HK receiver.

Still, something seemed missing when playing my digital library...

Enter my newest addition: The DacMagic 100.

After hooking up the DacMagic 100, my digital library's renditions went from clear and clean to expansive and bold. My living-room now sounds like a concert hall, albeit one with very familiar surroundings.

The DacMagic 100 didn't just open up my system's soundstage -- it blew it out in very conceivable direction. The DacMagic's frequency response and sound imaging is superb. It easily integrates with old and new analog and digital components that share space in my living-room.

This is an impressive product whose price belies its performance. If my 50-something ears, pounded by years of diving and surfing can appreciate even half of what the DacMagic 100 delivers, then this product is nothing short of transformative.

Absolutely delightful. Well done Cambridge Audio!
