For Sale - Cambridge Audio Dacmagic +
#1
Hi guys, hot on the heels of my ADM9 sale I'm now selling my Cambridge Audio Dacmagic + DAC. 
The unit is in mint condition finished in Black and I do have the original box for it. The unit has 2 digital inputs which can be selected and each has a choice of either optical or coaxial connection, there's also a usb audio input so it can take its feed from a PC. It has a pair of normal RCA output sockets as well as a pair of balanced XLR outputs. It also has a digital pass through output if you wanted to daisy chain it with other equipment. There is also a socket for an optional Bluetooth Audio Receiver. The unit also comes with a rubber stand/foot which enables it to be used in a vertical orientation if space is limited on a desk top.
The unit can be used as a preamp either with a fixed output or variable with the volume control knob.
The unit also has onboard a very good sounding headphone amplifier. MRRP on these units is £350, I'm setting a selling price at £180 including carriage.

Any nibbles yet Steve?
 Are you auctioning it, or selling it on 'Buy it now'?

It's on an auction, I've put the starting bid at £120, nobody has bid yet but there are 6 watchers, may take a day or two before somebody bids, I'm sure it will go as it's the only Dacmagic Plus on ebay atm.
Once I get a bid I can order this little dinky pair of speakers for the bedroom.
These ones:-

I'll be able to bring my little 50watt Yamaha sub out of mothballs to go with them, the Yamaha amps dedicated sub output is filtered at 90hz and the bottom end of the Roths finish at 80hz so they should integrate pretty well.
