Was unsure if an external DAC was really necessary when my receiver has a built-from Burrbrown, so Daniel at Hifi Club Orebro was cute enough to lend a DacMagic to me, and I set aside a whole day to evaluate and test. It took me about 90sec to come to the conclusion that there was a real boost! and that it would have to stay, it really makes eights around the built-in sound card in your computer and / or internal in my receiver When I for fun pointed out that my ex was now a demo example, so he pulled the 500: - Quite spontaneously I lost some bass, but it became so very better instead, and both the midrange and treble got themselves a real boost, before I was able to experience the midrange knocked over a bit and it will go to some ears, but the phenomenon is completely blown away Now Have nothing to compare to but dare say that it is well worth the money and a listening test

I have a HRT Musikstreamer HD which I am very happy with. I have connected a laptop to the DAC with a good remote control program. However, I have sometimes wished for an alternative solution which quickly get started with listening when using Spotify. Cambridge DAC was purchased, therefore, together with an Apple Airport Express. DAC connected via Toslink to the Airport Express (HRT: n has no Toslink). I can now run Spotify directly from iPhone or iPad to the music establishment. I think it looks elegant on the iPad when I surf around in the music. Price value of the solution is excellent. It's fun to discover new music and I can get started with listening quickly. Music quality of HRT DAC with High Resolution music is higher. Something else, however, was not to be expected. Although the Cambridge cope resolution files, but not with the same resolution and gravitas that HRT HD. For the price, I feel that the sound is good. Addition Now I have added Cambridge DAC on line 1 with Spotify and line 4 with HRT Streamer Hd DAC with High Resolution music. Music sources can now be run in parallel just like I wanted. I can now quickly jump between Spotify and high resolution music. It is possible that even at the Cambridge switch between USB, Toslink and coaxial.Tillägg 2 I think Airplay is sensitive to disturbance. I have changed channels on the router. I have also tried a new router and tried different frequencies without such good results in my opinion. I have now bought powerlines and now leads the signal into the mains and installing Airfoil on my laptop. Hip factor has decreased but the sound choppy now considerably smaller. The rating on the DAC is set in relation to the price. After having changed router, skimmed through the manual for the router 100 times, engaged Telia support, read forum threads for Airport Express under a half years, terrorized my Apple dealer several times, changed channels, frequencies, made port connections, etc. I have now replaced the Airport Express to a Blue Sound node to satisfaction. When listening to the high-resolution files with the Cambridge one is amazed price value.
