Introduction

As we all know, digital audio has been around for awhile and is practically a standard on most of our audio devices. Unfortunately, there are still select motherboards out there that don’t offer a digital output, so we’re stuck using an analog connection and laptops that only offer an analog audio jack. Cambridge Audio has the solution with their DacMagic XS. It’s a pocket size device that connects via any USB port and converts the audio to a digital signal.

 

Before we get started, let’s see what Cambridge has to say about it.

Listening to music on your computer is brilliant – instant, easy access to all your digital files and a world of streaming services, internet radio and video sites. The cheap headphone output of a typical laptop or computer is simply not good enough to get the best from your headphones.

The DacMagic XS USB DAC / Headphone Amp is an instant upgrade to any computer’s sound output. It connects quickly and easily to any USB port and allows you to hear your favourite music and movies with every drop of detail, exactly as the artist intended.
