DacMagic 100 Impressions

post #1 of 74
Thread Starter 

Thought it wise to separate this from the DM Plus impressions.

I reckon it looks like quite a good simple little dac. Will be interested to see how it goes.

The title needs to be fixed.  Perhaps "impressions?"

Looks like a nice "little"DAC.

Hmm, still comes with a wallwart PSU, I see....

What's every bodies obsession with wallwarts? If it was inbuilt, nobody would blink twice at it.

And these days I actually seek out equipment that uses a wall wart, since it is almost certain that it will have a DC power input. That way, I can throw away the wall wart and build a nice power suppply using a Belleson super regulator and fed by SLA batteries. So when I see a wall wart, I think of the opportunity to substantially improve the sound.

How would you go about building a PSU just curious as I haven't a clue ??

Does anyone in the US have it in stock?  I want to get one.

post #11 of 74

It's not even listed at Cambridge Audio's official UK reseller (Richer Sounds): with Cambridge Audio being British it probably isn't going to appear in the US for a while.
