Hello everyone,
I know little dot is a niche manufacturer and that this is their first dac but I have heard one of their amps + cvd player and that sounded pretty good.
I know the dacmagic is by cambridge audio who are a lot more experienced with dacs but they both use the seem wolfson chip. The implementation  might be different though and they might both use other chips to complement it.
But the important hting for me is that they both have spdiff input and xlr output.
I am really curious what the differences are and really tempted to get the little dot because it is quite a bit cheaper. I can only get the dacmagic here in nl for 400 euro.
So has anyone heard both?
Thanks in advance,
Greetings, Anouk,

Hello,
Well, even though i like reviews of the little dot dac_i i was more looking for a direct comparison with the dacmagic otherwise I sitll wont know much.
Anyway, i have been offered a second hand dacmagic with original proof of purchase from march for 270 euro all in so I think I will go for that since it is located within the netherlands.
