Arcam rDAC review


Sturdily built, generously specified and, crucially, sounds every penny of the asking price

Well specified and well finished ; substantial, responsive sound from any source

Some system-matching is required to avoid the bass becoming bothersome

Best DAC £200-£400, Awards 2011. Arcam has been here before, but never with such mainstream appeal and never at such an aggressive price

Arcam rDAC Wireless


No longer the default choice at the money, but a worthwhile contender nonetheless

Compact and sturdy; wireless convenience; spacious, up-front sound

Bass can be unruly; sounds better hard-wired

Arcam rDac - £300


Arcam, one of the pioneers of off-board DACs re-enters the market. Ed Selley finds out if the wait was worth it

Excellent USB implementation; natural sound; solid build

Can lack pace and attack – only a single optical and coaxial input

Clever design with class-leading USB implementation at a great price

Arcam rDAC wireless


Solid build. Great sound. Instant upgrade to CD player or media streamer. Compact. 24-bit DAC. USB input is high-quality.

Expensive for upgrade and dongles. Wireless is proprietary. Can interfere with Wi-Fi. iOS 4.3 eliminates need for proprietary iPod dongles. Limited inputs.

The Arcam rDAC wireless edition may not be worth the additional AU$400 or more on the standard edition, but it's still very talented in wired mode.

Limited inputs. Wireless option not compelling.

The Arcam rDAC is a perfect accompaniment to a media streamer or PC, as it enables you to ditch the CD player and enjoy high-quality digital files through your stereo.

Je suis très satisfait du Arcam rdac . Il sonne vraiment naturel . Les drums sonnent super bien , du kick drum aux cymbales. Et oui , les cymbales sonnent avec tant de matières et d'aplomb.Je l'utilise avec un ensemble Linn Lk2 et Linn Klout sur des...
