Scott 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.

We also learn about the BT-100, a bluetooth receiver. It’s an extra for the device and plugs into a special port. It uses the Aptex Bluetooth audio Codec (less compression, better audio). That means your Bluetooth will also get 24-bit /384 kHz sound.
