    The Best USB DAC For The Biggest Laptop Sound

    The Red DacMagic XS V2 USB DAC/headphone amp is an instant upgrade to any computer's sound output. It connects quickly and easily to any USB port and allows you to hear your favourite music and movies with every drop of detail, exactly as the artist intended.

    Small But Mighty

    The Red DacMagic XS V2s built–in headphone amp puts out 150mW of serious power, for the bass and volume you need even in the noisiest environments. Now you can enjoy perfect sound from your laptop wherever you are. Watch the video opposite for more information.

    More Power

    The built–in headphone amp increases the punch of your headphones, delivering 10 times more power than most laptop soundcards can manage. Even in the noisiest environments you will hear more of your music and won't have to worry about the buzz of background noise. The Red DacMagic XS V2 features a volume control, easily adjusted at the tap of a finger. What's more, an LED shows current sample rate, so you always know if you're getting the right level of detail.

    Highly Portable

    The high quality brushed aluminium case weighs a mere 100g, so this tiny powerhouse can come anywhere with you.

    Pure Processing

    The Red DacMagic XS V2 bypasses your computer's in–built digital to analogue converter (DAC), instead using its own high quality 24–bit DAC. When running in USB Class 2 mode, the DacMagic XS V2 can also use our dedicated Windows USB Class 2 USB driver (driver not required for Apple computers). This allows you to bypass the computer operating system's poor audio path, preventing unwanted interference and re–sampling, and guaranteeing professional quality audio output.

    High Resolution Audio

    Most computers can't play high resolution audio through their headphone output. Featuring asynchronous USB audio clocking, and supporting both USB Class 1 and USB Class 2, the Red DacMagic XS V2 can be used to play everything from MP3 to the highest quality 24–bit/192kHz studio master recordings from your computer, free from unwanted noise, jitter and distortion.

    Wherever, Whenever

    Your music will sound incredible however you choose to listen – the DacMagic XS V2 will improve the sound of any app or streaming service like Spotify, Pandora or Skype, as well as the music stored on your laptop or in the cloud.

    Music, Games, Films and More

    The DacMagic XS V2 is not only for music fans – if you like to watch films, play games or speak to your friends on Skype, then the DacMagic XS V2 will transform the sound of all of these too.


    The Red DacMagic XS V2 lets you use your headphones to their full potential. Even if you're only using the free headphones that were supplied with your iPod, you'll notice a big improvement in sound. But if you've spent your hard earned cash on better headphones, then don't waste them by connecting them to the low quality output on your computer – drive them properly with the DacMagic XS V2!

    Subscription services

    If you've paid for a better quality music subscription service, such as Spotify or Pandora, then use the DacMagic XS V2 to hear what you're paying for – don't settle for the low quality output from your computer.
