Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus review


Versatile and feature-packed DAC/headphone amp majors on detail

Versatile ; impressive feature count ; aptX Bluetooth ; sound is detailed, subtle and fast

Better than I thought possible.


Combined with my new CXC Transport, this DAC is absolutely amazing. I mainly listen to classical music and over the last week I've been revisiting some of my all time favourite recordings. I am discovering details that I have never heard before. The...
