Expert review by : Stephen Hornbrook (

Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus


Cambridge Audio has been in the audio business for quite some time and one of their more popular products in recent history, the DacMagic has undergone an update. The new DacMagic Plus improves upon the DacMagic by adding support for 24/192 sampling...

The DacMagic Plus offers quite a lot of bang for the buck, including plenty of connectivity with a couple digital inputs, 24bit/192kHz high resolution USB 2.0 audio, and optional Bluetooth streaming, and it even has a solid headphone amp. The DACs...

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

Lacks dynamic power ; hint of brightness to treble frequencies

Better sound and better features than the original but you can get better sound

Just what I had been missing


Some ten years I bought myself a hi-fi valve amplifier, and although it delivered in the low end and midrange frequencies, it always lacked a high end sparkle. As a result the amp would be periodically alternated in my rack with a solid state model...

Good sound, capable unit


Bit old hat in design and function, no remote. Good connections. Very good sound. Online instructions a bit vague in wording. Works well with my hifi, tv and pc.

What a difference! Great bit of kit


This has changed the way I listen to music! I have a top end (but old Arcam CD player) and a Brennan B2. I had not believed this dac would make that much difference - but it does! Also improved the sound from music on my Mac Book. If only that I can...
