Cambridge Audio DacMagic Digital To Analog Converter, Model CAMBDACMAGIBK

With the advent of computer-based music systems, Cambridge Audio’s DacMagic™ upsampling digital to analogue converter is the most affordable and effective way to upgrade any PC or Macintosh computer, network music device, games console or standard CD/DVD player to truly high end sound quality.

Adapted Time Filtering (ATF) asynchronous upsampling technology might sound complicated but the benefits are instantly audible. Essentially it converts 16-24 bit audio to 24 bit/192kHz so you hear so much more from compressed material. Meanwhile a 32 bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP) eradicates jitter which is especially effective with hard disk playback from PCs or Macintosh computers. Whether your digital music collection is stored on a PC or you use a network music client – Squeezebox™, SoundBridge™, Sonos™ etc - the difference in audible quality is incredible!


  • Adaptive Time Filtering (ATF™) asynchronous upsampling technology converts 16-24 bit audio (at any standard sampling frequency between 32-96kHz) to 24 bit/192kHz
  • 32 bit Texas Instruments Digital Signal Processor (DSP)
  • Dual Differential Virtual Earth balanced filter topology – low order two pole linear-phased Bessel filter takes advantage of high sampling rate achieved
  • Twin WM8740 high quality DACs in dual differential mode for excellent stereo imaging
  • Incoming sampling rate indicator 32/44.1/48/88.2/96kHz
  • Choice of filters – linear phase, minimum phase and steep filter can all be selected to suit an individual’s listening preferences
  • Phase select to invert or reinvert input, correcting possible recording problems
  • Two inputs with both SPDIF & Toslink sockets allow wide range of digital sources to be connected
  • USB input connects direct to PC without drivers to act as very high quality DAC/soundcard providing genuine hi-fi quality playback from desktop or media PC
  • Singled ended phono and XLR balanced audio outputs
  • Digital output (SPDIF and Toslink concurrently) passes through selected source for recording purposes
  • Substantial aluminium front panel plus an entirely new ultra rigid, acoustically dampened chassis
  • Can be used horizontally (using four rubber feet) or vertically (rubber foot)
