ENHANCE YOUR MUSIC

Whilst your computer might be great for spreadsheets and emails, it’s not at all that good at processing sound. That’s why our engineers designed our award winning DacMagic XS to instantly upgrade the sound output from your laptop. Just plug it into the USB connection of your computer or Mac for incredible, detailed high resolution audio.

POWER AND VOLUME

DacMagic XS delivers up to 10 times more power than most laptop soundcards. The headphone output from most laptops only outputs about 15-20mW, meaning weak bass and a lack of depth. The DacMagic XS however can output a massive 105mW for proper depth and volume that will drive the very best headphone set ups hard, with detailed sound and amazing bass. The volume available is easily adjusted on the simple fingertip controls and an LED shows the sample rate, so you always know you’re getting the right level of clarity and detail from your tracks.

HIGHLY PORTABLE

We know you won’t want to be without it, so we machined the DacMagic XS’s lightweight but hardwearing chassis from aluminium, for a total weight of just 100g.

The DacMagic XS is available in 5 stunning nishes, Titanium, Red, Gold, Blue and all Black. Take your pick.

PURE PROCESSING

When running in USB Class 2 mode, the DacMagic XS can also use our dedicated Windows USB Class 2 USB driver (driver not required for Apple computers). This allows you to bypass the computer operating system’s poor audio path, preventing unwanted interference and re-sampling and guaranteeing professional quality audio output. You don’t need to put up with bad sound from a laptop, ever again.

Perfect for my needs!

John Parker

I really like this little guy. I wanted something for work that would be inconspicuous and not take up room on the desk. The XS is obviously a massive improvement over the computer but there isn't anything else on the market at this price that compares, from what I've come across. I liked it so much at work with my Audeze EL-8's that I got one for home. I recommend the class 2 driver if at all possible. To me, this sets it apart from others. The sound gets very smooth and opens up.

Listening pleasure for less than $80!

This is one of the simplest upgrades you can add to your mobile listening habits. I am using My New DacMagic XS to drive a pair of Shure 215's and I can say without a doubt how much of an an improvement it makes to my listening. For less that $200 I have a great combo!

Give yourself a boost

Outside a good pair of headsets, this was by far the best audio upgrade I've purchased. Great sound, clarity, and output power.
