    Cambridge Audio is a well-known brand in the world of HiFi. Today, we take a look at the newest addition to their extensive line-up of DACs and amplifiers. The new DacMagic XS is a matchbox-sized DAC/amp with plenty of power for normal headphones. We take it for a spin with several headphones to see how it performs.

    Could a cellphone reserve battery-pack (reserve/mobile battery-pack charger) be used as a powersupply for theDacMagic XS?
    But the again - what is the point to have 2 gizmos (3 with the cellphone) in the pocket.....

    They should insert a small battery pack for 3-4 hours play IMO........

    You could do that but you would need some splitter cable so that data lead could go to the OTG cable from the phone.

    $189 seems rather pricey for most people who will just plug this into their PC to get a little better audio fidelity...
