DacMagic 100

CONVERTIDOR DE DIGITAL A ANALÓGICO

Un convertidor de digital a analógico Wolfson de 24 bits, una entrada de audio USB 1.0 sin controlador de 24 bits/96 kHz y entradas digitales TosLink y S/PDIF permiten a DacMagic 100 recibir el detalle del sonido de su equipo informático, iPod o televisor (entre otros dispositivos digitales) y mejorar su precisión, profundidad y claridad hasta obtener una experiencia de audio realmente excepcional.

UN PROCESO DE GRAN PUREZA

Generalmente, los convertidores de digital a analógico de los dispositivos digitales habituales carecen del nivel esperado, y no permiten obtener toda la calidad de audio de las fuentes de sonido. DacMagic 100 toma directamente la señal de audio digital del dispositivo para omitir la tarjeta de sonido o el DAC del mismo. Procesa digitalmente la señal de audio mediante nuestra tecnología de diseño personalizado para mejorar enormemente la calidad del sonido y reducir los niveles de distorsión. Esto produce mejores niveles de detalle, una claridad espectacular y un escalado muy profundo de toda su música.

COMPATIBILIDAD

DacMagic 100 es un dispositivo increíblemente adaptable: es compatible con archivos digitales de prácticamente cualquier formato como, por ejemplo, archivos originales de estudio de 24 bits de máxima calidad o archivos de audio sin pérdidas almacenados en su equipo. Cuenta con tres opciones de conectividad digital y la capacidad de conectar hasta cuatro dispositivos simultáneamente: DacMagic 100 combina un gran número de mejoras de audio digital. La configuración del dispositivo es muy intuitiva, lo que permite empezar a disfrutar de una mejor calidad de audio en cuestión de minutos.

PRINCIPIO DE DISEÑO: EL SONIDO ES PRIMORDIAL

Como todos nuestros productos, el desarrollo del dispositivo fue realizado de forma personalizada por nuestro fantástico equipo de profesionales de nuestra sede en el centro de Londres. Nuestros ingenieros pusieron todo su esfuerzo y atención al detalle para garantizar que la característica principal del producto es su calidad del sonido. Esta es la razón por la que DacMagic 100 incorpora el convertidor de digital a analógico más reciente de Wolfson, la empresa líder en el sector.

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!
