One of the latest additions to the Arcam range is the airDAC. Not only is this an extremely good DAC in its own right, the inclusion of airPlay makes it a very versatile streamer.
The streamer contains a 24/96 DAC that supports the formats that you are most likely to use, that is WAV, FLAC and ALAC.
LED indicator lights on the front show clearly which input is selected and these can be conveniently selected with a remote handset.
Here is a view of the back of the unit showing the analogue and digital outputs along with the coax and optical inputs. Next to these we have the antenna and ethernet sockets the the power switch and 12V input.
Everything is supplied in the box to get you going. However we would recommend using higher quality interconnect and digital cables for the best sound quality. Now here's the simple bit to get you listening to CD quality streaming. Connect the airDAC to your Hi-Fi system, download the Qobuz App. from i-Tunes store, select Airplay on your tablet, iPod or iPhone, select your favourite album and just press PLAY. This is a great and inexpensive way to enjoy the superb quality sound that Qobuz provide with their lossless streaming.
