The DacMagic XS delivers the bass, clarity and power you've been missing from your digital audio, anywhere and everywhere.





More Clarity
You can’t hear digital audio signals. They have to be converted into analogue signals by a Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) before you can play them. This is a critical process and one that Cambridge Audio specializes in. The DacMagic XS is smaller than a matchbox, yet it uses technology from their high-end DACs. But it is not just for audiophiles - anything from MP3s to high resolution lossless files, streaming services such as Spotify and Pandora, Skype, games and films will all benefit. If you’ve paid for a higher quality subscription service, the DacMagic XS allows you to hear what you’re paying for.

More Power
The built-in headphone amp increases the punch of your headphones, delivering 10 times more power than most laptop soundcards can manage. Even in the noisiest environments you will hear more of your music and won’t have to worry about the buzz of background noise.

The DacMagic XS also features a volume control, easily adjusted at the tap of a finger. What’s more, a convenient LED shows current sample rate, so you always know if you're getting the right level of detail.

More Versatility
At home, the DacMagic XS can also bring the same attention to detail to your existing hi-fi set-up. Use it as the link between your laptop and home hi-fi amp for serious digital audio quality, without the space implications of a larger DAC. And finally the sleek, sturdy black aluminium case minimises interference and ensures the DacMagic XS is built to last.

Versatile, pocketable and powerful – no other USB DAC at this price sounds this good or is this small. Hear what you've been missing.
