Cambridge Audio: DacMagic Plus at 24-bit / 384kHz – CES 2012

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSScott Ertz talks with Ben Beaumont of Cambridge Audio. He shows off the new DacMagic Plus, the second generation to the DacMagic. There is a seperate volume control from the headphones. They also removed the limitation of the bit rate in the audio area. That brings you to a full 24-bit/384kHz audio through up-sampling. However, if you are on a Windows machine, you can only play back a 24 / 96kHz, but if you download a driver from Cambridge Audio, you can get 24-bit/192 kHz. Get DacMagic Plus on Amazon We also learn about the BT-100, a bluetooth receiver. It’s an extra for the device and plugs into a special port.

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS Sometimes I think about all the places I have contact information. Phone, Facebook, Twitter, etc. So when we saw Orbit and their iPhone application, I was blown away. Orbit will allow you to manage many of your social media connections from one application. It’s organizes the mess. The best part is before you call them, you can find out what they are doing. Depending on their blurbs, you might not need to call them and find out what’s going on. Andy McCaskey talks with Rich about the iPhone Application that is not only really exciting, it’s also free (with a Premium option coming soon). Rich shows the “Volume Control” which can turn down the social clutter if you don’t want to hear how many guns one person needs from Mafia Wars or if someone needs seeds for their Farmville.
