DacMagic XS

DAC USB portables

Le convertisseur numérique-analogique/ampli casque USB DacMagic XS met instantanément à niveau la sortie audio de n'importe quel ordinateur. Il se connecte rapidement et facilement à n'importe quel port USB et vous permet d'entendre les moindres détails de vos musiques et bandes sonores favorites, exactement comme l’avait prévu l'artiste.

AMÉLIOREZ VOTRE MUSIQUE

Votre ordinateur portable est certes formidable pour les tableurs et les e-mails, mais il n'est pas aussi efficace pour traiter le son. C'est pourquoi nos ingénieurs ont conçu notre DacMagic XS, plusieurs fois primé, qui permet de mettre instantanément à niveau la sortie audio de votre ordinateur portable. Il vous suffit de le connecter à la prise USB de votre PC ou de votre Mac pour obtenir un son haute résolution détaillé.

PUISSANCE ET VOLUME

Le DacMagic XS délivre jusqu'à 10 fois plus de puissance que la plupart des cartes son d'ordinateurs portables. La sortie casque de la plupart des ordinateurs portables ne restitue qu'environ 15 à 20 mW : le son manque de graves et de profondeur. Mais avec le DacMagic XS, vous pouvez obtenir une profondeur et un volume corrects grâce à une restitution massive de 105 mW. Votre casque pourra vous donner le maximum, avec un son détaillé et des graves incroyables. Le volume disponible se règle du bout des doigts grâce à deux touches simples et une DEL affiche le taux d'échantillonnage, pour que vous sachiez toujours que vous tirez le bon niveau de clarté et de détail de vos pistes audio.

ULTRA-PORTABLE

Nous savons que vous ne pourrez plus vous en passer, alors nous avons doté le DacMagic XS d'un boîtier en aluminium léger mais solide, pour un poids total de tout juste 100 g. Le DacMagic XS est disponible en 5 finitions superbes : Titane, Rouge, Or, Bleu et Noir. Faites votre choix!

DU PUR TRAITEMENT

En mode USB 2, le DacMagic XS peut également utiliser notre pilote USB 2 Windows dédié (pilote non requis pour les ordinateurs Apple). Cela permet de contourner les chemins audio de mauvaise qualité du système d'exploitation de l'ordinateur, évitant ainsi des interférences et un rééchantillonnage indésirables, et garantissant une sortie audio de qualité professionnelle. Vous n'aurez plus jamais à subir le mauvais son d'un ordinateur portable. Plus jamais.

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)

Go get it!

NoNickNameJustFrank

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!
