The DacMagic has a variety of simple connections including S/PDIF, Toslink and USB inputs which mean it can be used to improve a wide range of devices with digital outputs such as soundcards, portable media player docks or networked music devices including sound bridges. Twin Wolfson DACs provide outstanding stereo imaging while a choice of digital filters is available for individual preference and flexibility. Key to its abilities is Adapted Time Filtering (ATF™) upsampling technology developed in conjunction with Anagram Technologies of Switzerland which converts 16-24 bit audio data to 24 bit/192kHz dramatically improving musical reproduction. A 32 bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP) eradicates jitter which is especially effective with hard disk playback from PCs.

Key features:

Two inputs with both S/PDIF & Toslink sockets allow a wide range of digital sources to be connected such as network music devices, games consoles, CD/DVD players and other digital music devices

USB input connects direct to PC without drivers to act as a very high quality DAC/soundcard providing genuine hi-fi quality playback from desktop or Windows Media Center PCs

Adapted Time Filtering (ATF™) asynchronous upsampling technology converts 16-24 bit audio (at any standard sampling frequency between 32-96kHz) to 24 bit/192kHz
