DacMagic XS - Firmware Information

There is no firmware update available for the DacMagic XS however if you would like to use the unit with higher resolution music files, you can use the unit in USB Audio 2.0 Mode.

You can switch between USB Audio 1.0 and 2.0 mode by holding both the + and - buttons until you see a brief flicker of a pink light within the unit. Once you see this the LED will switch off.

You can then repeat the process to switch back to USB 1.0 although this should not be necessary.


If you are using Windows, you will need our v4.47 Windows driver update for versions 7, 8 and 10 to ensure your PC or laptop continues to recognise the DacMagic. The v4.47 update can be downloaded here.

Please note: The update is not required for Mac users as these are already compatible with USB Audio 2.0 Mode.


Once the unit is in USB Class 2.0, this will appear within the CA Control Panel as 'CA DacMagicXS 2.0'.


If you are still unsure as to whether you need an update, or how to install it, please contact us by submitting a request here and our Support team would be more than happy to help.
