Does the matchbook-sized digital to analog converter perform?
Every computer with a microphone or headphone port has one -- a digital to analog converter (DAC). There are nearly as many chipsets and DAC models as there are models of laptop, and as many opinions on the efficacy of various implementations. Cambridge Audio has a USB one to supplement its line -- the DacMagic XS. Does the little device do as it promises, and actually boost the listening quality of digitally encoded music?

Powerful speaker emits great sound, but misses the mark on the finer details
In the pursuit of outstanding sound quality, Bluetooth speakers make a lot of sacrifices to offer a device that is affordable and pleasant enough to listen to compel consumers to purchase it. It's a series of compromises between the number of speakers in the platform, the battery life and the portability of the unit. Cambridge Audio, the London-based audio company, offers a compact version of its sound quality inside the Minx Go.

Balanced Mode Radiator drivers replace tweeters in Cambridge Audio speakers
Cambridge Audio has launched a new range of speakers for the home, one which it claims is an "entirely new approach" to speaker design. The Aero range uses Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) drivers with conventional cone drivers, similar to the ones used in its Minx speakers, rather than the usual tweeters employed in more traditional designs.
