Pure Process

The DacMagic Plus works by taking a direct digital audio signal from your computer, TV or other device - bypassing their built-in digital to analogue converters. This signal is then carefully analysed and upgraded using our ATF2 upsampling system. Once this process is complete, the DacMagic Plus outputs your music as a much purer analogue signal straight to your amplifier. Custom developed by our dedicated team in the heart of London, DacMagic Plus is totally flexible and supports digital music of all formats. It even allows you to upgrade 24-bit music files stored on your PC for better-than-CD performance from your digital music collection.

    A great sounding and great looking DAC. This is my first DAC and it really made a big difference. The only caveat on this one is it doesn't lock to source input right away when the system is off. I have to cycle power on and off several times. Once it lock, I can select what inputs I want and it will lock right away. The solution, I just don't power the system off.
