Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS review | What Hi-Fi?
It is a necessary upgrade if you are using an old computer. And with the DragonFly providing some fierce competition in terms of performance, it means the DacMagic XS drops down a star. Then go to Settings to choose Audio Output and you are ready to go. The Ueb XS is an impressive device daxmagic up and running. This is a very reasonable price when you consider its great performance and other DACs out there.
These not only set the volume level, but if you press both at once and hold for a few seconds they switch the DAC operation from USB 1. Does it really improve the sound or is it just an advertising gimmick? However, the DacMagic XS is still a delightful little dacmayic and those with a strict budget won’t be disappointed.
Anyways, you can use this device as a headphone amplifier and it will work all usv time to increase sound volume, especially when your internal soundcard is too weak to drive headphone.
It simply sounds more focused, stable and confident. I feel like I can keep turning the volume up until my ears explode. The sound was exactly the same.

It can provide a cleaner, warmer, louder sound with tighter bass and reduce noises at the same time. By looking at colors of the flashing LED, you will know its corresponding sampling rate.
But we do think AudioQuest’s brand-new revision of its DragonFly DAC sounds clearer, and has the edge in terms of outright resolution and dynamic subtlety. Apart from the bass, I also appreciate its built-in headphone amplifier.
Move to higher resolution source material, and the good news continues. Dacmaggic all our DAC reviews.
This also helps improve sound stage of this headphone significantly. One downside of this DAC is that there is no volume indicator because your internal soundcard is bypassed, so there is no way to figure out the current volume level.

You will need to choose audio output again after changing USB mode. However, the difference is not significant and it took me hours to figure it out. I could only confirm it after a blind testing.
Your email address will not be published. I really hope Cambridge Audio could make the XS work with mobile devices, then it will be an awesome gadget. With the DAC in the middle, the sound is incredible now without adding annoying noises.
