Digital audio is brilliant, but it needs to be analogue audio before you can hear it. And the way it ends up sounding depends entirely on how you convert the digital audio files stored on your computer, on CD or from your favourite streaming service. DacMagic 200M performs the digital-to-analogue conversion perfectly every time, letting all kinds of audio systems sound better than ever before.
At the heart of the DacMagic 200M is a pair of extremely high-quality ESS Sabre digital- to-analogue converters. They handle digital audio files up to 24bit/768kHz or DSD512, so they can deal with digital music of any kind stored on CDs, smartphones, computers – or anywhere else, for that matter.
Once a digital file is onboard DacMagic 200M, its twin DACs convert it to analogue information with all of its dynamics and detail intact. And, because the analogue signal it sends to your audio set-up is so astonishingly free of distortion, so precise and so lifelike, your system will sound more convincing and complete than it ever has before.
It’s possible to get digital audio files into DacMagic 200M in any number of ways. Digital optical, digital coaxial and USB inputs mean CD players, games consoles, laptops or any other digital equipment can be easily hooked up – and Bluetooth aptX reception means it’s just as straightforward to wirelessly deliver files from your smartphone or tablet too.
DacMagic 200M has both balanced and unbalanced analogue outputs, so can be easily connected to audio systems of all types, as well as switchable filters to give you different sonic options. Alongside its ability to deliver stunning sound to your speakers, it has a high-quality headphone amplifier with 6.3mm output on board too, so you can enjoy DacMagic 200M’s thrilling sound quality in private – at whatever volume you like.
