The Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus has fantastic features including wireless device connectivity and stunning audio performance from music of all formats.
The DacMagic Plus works by taking a direct digital audio signal from your computer, TV or other device - bypassing their built-in digital to analogue converters.
This signal is then carefully analysed and upgraded using our ATF2 upsampling system. Once this process is complete, the DacMagic Plus outputs your music as a much purer analogue signal straight to your amplifier.
Custom developed by our dedicated team in the heart of London, DacMagic Plus is totally flexible and supports digital music of all formats. It even allows you to upgrade 24-bit music files stored on your PC for better-than-CD performance from your digital music collection.
Watch the video above to find out why our proprietary ATF2 upsampling technology makes such a difference to the sound produced by our DACs.
By linking our plug-and-play BT100 wireless audio receiver to the DacMagic Plus, you can also stream music wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or any gadget that supports Bluetooth*. Additionally, if your device supports the superior aptX CODEC Bluetooth encoding, you can stream lossless CD quality music from your device to the DacMagic Plus.
As well as controlling and playing music that's stored on your computer or smartphone, streaming services like Spotify and Last FM can be shared with your hi-fi in stunning quality.
Revolutionise digital audio:
DacMagic Plus is incredibly versatile, catering for a wide range of digital audio formats. Its ability to transform low-quality files into high-quality jitter-free audio - by upsampling to 24-bit/384kHz - makes it ideal for those new to digital music and audiophiles alike.
Better than CD sound:
A dedicated USB input for computer connection, handling up to studio-quality 24-bit/192kHz files gives the very best ever audio performance from a PC. Fact!
Convenient wireless streaming:
The optional BT100 audio receiver adds instant showroom appeal. Nobody can fail to be impressed by this simple, fantastic sounding feature (even better with aptX enabled devices!). Best of all is its ability to work with any mobile device with Bluetooth support makes DacMagic Plus the must-have solution for Android, Windows Mobile and of course iPhone users!
Four devices can be connected. Just toggle between TV, PC, Blu-ray, smartphone or whatever's connected from DacMagic Plus' front panel. Selectable filters allow you to tune the sound to suit each source input.
Great for Pros too:
DacMagic Plus is great for commercial and professional applications. Phono and XLR outputs provide connection to high-end amplifiers, and professional audio systems.
Enhance personal audio:
The premium headphone market has exploded and DacMagic Plus gives best-ever performance as well as volume control. No need for a separate headphone pre-amplifier!
Volume can also be controlled from the front panel allowing DacMagic Plus to be used as a fully digital pre-amplifier. Connect it to active speakers or a power amplifier.
Digital Pass Through automatically detects signal type. So for example, when a Blu-ray player is connected to an AVR via Dacmagic Plus, stereo music tracks are processed by Dacmagic Plus whereas multi-channel movie soundtracks are passed through DacMagic Plus and left for the AVR to process.
Great sound for everyone:
It's simple to set-up and use... Unlike many hi-fi and AV products, DacMagic Plus is really easy for all the family to enjoy. Simple front panel controls allow source selection and thanks to horizontal or vertical mounting (just place it in the supplied mount), DacMagic Plus can be located next to any entertainment system.
Best possible construction:
All metal construction provides a low-resonance, vibration-free chassis for DacMagic Plus' premium components. It's also beautiful to operate, feels rock-solid and is built to last.
