DacMagic 100

CONVERTISSEUR NUMÉRIQUE/ANALOGIQUE

Grâce à un DAC Wolfson 24-bits, une entrée 1.0 audio USB sans pilote 24-bits/96kHz et des entrées numériques S/PDIF et TosLink, le DacMagic 100 prend le son de votre ordinateur, iPod, TV et autres dispositifs numériques et y ajoute détail, profondeur et limpidité rehaussée pour vous donner une véritable expérience audio.

DU PUR TRAITEMENT

Généralement, le convertisseur Numérique/Analogique que l’on trouve dans les dispositifs numériques typiques est plutôt médiocre et ne va pas extraire la qualité d’audio la plus authentique qui soit de vos sources. Le DacMagic 100 fonctionne en prenant un signal numérique audio directement depuis votre dispositif, afin de contourner sa carte son ou DAC. Ensuite, il traite numériquement le signal audio en utilisant notre technologie de conception personnalisée, améliorant de manière spectaculaire la qualité du son et réduisant la distorsion. Ceci résulte en un détail supérieur, une limpidité éclatante et une extensibilité plus profonde de tout votre audio.

COMPATIBILITÉ

Le DacMagic 100 est hyper flexible et supporte pratiquement tous les formats de fichiers numériques, y compris les fichiers studio-master 24-bits de la plus haute qualité ou les fichiers audio de qualité sans perte (lossless) stockés sur votre ordinateur. Avec trois options de connectivité numérique différentes et l’aptitude de connecter quatre dispositifs simultanément, le DacMagic 100 est une réelle plate-forme de valorisation de la musique numérique. L’installation est entièrement intuitive, vous permettant de commencer à profiter d’une meilleure qualité audio, en quelques minutes.

CONCEPTION ‘LE SON D’ABORD’

De même que tous nos produits, le DacMagic 100 a été développé sur mesure intégralement par notre équipe de conception dans notre siège, situé au cœur de Londres. Nos équipes d’ingénieurs apporte une incroyable attention minutieuse au détail, afin d’assurer que la qualité du son est la priorité pour ce produit, ceci incluant pour le DacMagic 1000 l’intégration du tout dernier convertisseur Numérique/Analogique du fournisseur leader du marché, Wolfson.

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!
