A popular DAC with advanced ATF2 upsampling 

Improving on a legend is never easy, but Cambridge Audio has gone back to the drawing board to create the DacMagic Plus with exciting new features, wireless device connectivity, and best of all, significantly enhanced audio performance.

We live in a world of immense musical opportunity. Computers, TVs and Blu-ray players can all deliver audio to your hi-fi system, but because they’re primarily designed to perform other functions, their audio outputs lack quality. But by simply connecting them to DacMagic Plus, you can bypass their inbuilt digital to analogue converters transforming their humdrum performance into something altogether more spectacular!

PURE PROCESS

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.


Optional Bluetooth


And by linking our plug-and-play BT100 wireless audio receiver to DacMagic Plus, you can also stream music wirelessly from your iPhone, Android smartphone, iPad, tablet, laptop or any device that supports Bluetooth*. Best of all, if your smartphone, tablet or Apple Mac supports the high-end audio aptX CODEC, you can stream audiophile quality music from your device to DacMagic Plus.


Of course the range of music available from today’s mobile devices is almost endless and as well as controlling and playing stored music, online music services like Spotify and Last FM can be shared with your hi-fi in stunning quality.
