Announcing a new top-of-range digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and headphone amplifier, Cambridge Audio has introduced its DacMagic 200M DAC.
The Cambridge Audio DacMagic 200M natively supports MQA, and it provides Bluetooth to enable wireless device connectivity.
Cambridge Audio emphasizes that its new DAC is specifically designed for digital audio and it features dual ESS Sabre DAC chips. According to the company, the DacMagic 200M is capable of playing high-resolution 32-bit/768kHz PCM and DSD512 native DSD signals.
Regardless of the source type—CDs, streaming content from a smart device or content from a computer is converted to analog via the DacMagic 200M’s dual-mono configuration, which enables the unit to employ one DAC chip per channel to process incoming audio signals.
The new Cambridge Audio DAC also offers users a choice of selectable digital filters. These filters help to reduce the noise that generated by the digital-to-analog conversion process.
Other features include a built-in headphone amplifier.
The DAC’s front-panel provides a 6.3mm output for headphone connections, and it drives headphones with a Class A/B amplifier.
Cambridge Audio adds the DacMagic 200M includes coax, Toslink and USB inputs, along with XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) outputs.
