DacMagic XS

Tragbarer USB-DAC

Der DacMagic XS USB Digital Analog Wandler (DAC)/Kopfhörerverstärker ermöglicht eine sofortige Verbesserung der Audio-Ausgabe an jedem Computer. Anschluss an jeden USB-Port schnell und einfach. Ob Lieblingsfilm oder Musikwiedergabe, mit dem DacMagic XS genießt du feinste klangliche Details, genau wie vom Künstler vorgesehen.

VERBESSERE DEINE MUSIK

Zwar mag dein Laptop für Tabellenkalkulation und E-Mails ausgezeichnet sein, jedoch kann er Sound nicht besonders gut verarbeiten. Deshalb haben unsere Techniker unseren preisgekrönten DacMagic XS entworfen, der die Audio-Wiedergabe von deinem Laptop sofort verbessert. Für einen unglaublich detaillierten Klang mit hoher Auflösung, stecke ihn einfach in den USB-Anschluss deines Computers oder Macs.

LEISTUNG UND LAUTSTÄRKE

Ein DacMagic XS bietet bis zu 10-mal mehr Leistung als die Soundkarten der meisten. Die Kopfhörerausgabe liefert in der Regel nur ungefähr 15-20mW, was schwachen Bass und Mangel an Tiefe bedeutet. Der DacMagic XS  kann jedoch 105mW ausgeben, für richtige Tiefe und Lautstärke, die den besten Kopfhörern alles abverlangt, mit detailliertem Sound und ausgezeichnetem Bass.

Die Lautstärke kann leicht über die einfache Fingerspitzensteuerung angepasst werden, und eine LED zeigt die Sample Rate, damit du immer weißt, dass du das richtige Klarheitsniveau und Detail von deiner Musik bekommst.

LEICHTGEWICHT

Wir sind sicher, dass du den DacMagic XS immer bei dir haben möchtest. Deshalb haben wir sein leichtes, robustes Gehäuse aus Aluminium hergestellt. So wiegt er nur 100g. Es gibt den DacMagic XS in fünf atemberaubenden Versionen: Titan, Rot, Gold, Blau und Schwarz. Es ist deine Wahl.

FEINSTE VERARBEITUNG

Im USB-Klasse-2-Modus kann der DacMagic XS auch unseren zugehörigen Windows USB-Klasse-2-USB-Treiber verwenden (Treiber für Apple-Computer nicht benötigt). So kannst du den minderwertigen Signalweg des Betriebssystems von deinem Computer umgehen, wodurch ungewollte Störungen und Resampling vermieden werden und eine Tonausgabe von professioneller Qualität garantiert ist. Du musst dich nie wieder mit schlechtem Sound von einem Laptop abfinden!

Excellent for the price

Tim

Vast improvement on the sound from my PC (compared to normal headphone output) when fed into my AKG K702 headphones. I was worried the lowish sensitivity of these phones would result in low volume. But most music plays at a good level at 35-40 of the 50+ 'clicks' available on the volume control. Installation reasonably straightforward, and product beautifully packaged (like all Cambridge audio stuff)

Great little machine!
Clears up how bad most notebooks audio outs are, really.
My old JBL's can still shine if they get a proper input.
Awesome with headphones - give it a go it will not distort as you'd expect from a mobile device output.
Don't get me on hifi slipslop -> this is a huge impro to probably any notebook arround.
@CambridgeAudio: Great Job!
