Device provides 24-bit conversion, delivers 150mW

Boutique audio device manufacturer Cambridge Audio has introduced the DacMagic XS, a pint-sized Digital to Analog Converter. The 24-bit converter delivers 150mW of power to headphones, boosting both bass and volume for listeners.

The device features asynchronous USB audio clocking, and supports both USB Class 1 and USB Class 2 connections. The DacMagic XS can be used to play everything from MP3 to the highest quality 24-bit 192kHz studio master recordings from a computer -- free from unwanted noise, jitter and distortion, the company says.

When running in Class 2 mode, the DacMagic XS can also use Cambridge Audio's dedicated Windows USB Class 2 USB driver on Windows, allowing users to bypass what Cambridge calls Window's "poor audio path," preventing unwanted interference and re-sampling, giving the best possible quality audio output. No driver is required for similar performance in OS X, according to Cambridge Audio.

DacMagic XS is available from Cambridge Audio specialists for $189.
