Arcam launch the rPlay streaming DAC
T he Arcam rPlay is an audiophile grade streaming 24/192 DAC with DTS Play-fi, Airplay and UPnP which will retail in Feb 2017 at £399. rPlay is a very unusual DAC in that it doesn't have any digital inputs ! Inputs are Ethernet or Wi-Fi. Outputs from the rPlay are either variable RCA analogue (the rPlay's variable analogue output uses the same volume control as the A49 flagship amplifier), fixed output RCA, or coax S/PDIF digital enabling the rPlay to act as just a streamer connecting to a superior DAC.

The Arcam rPlay is the latest addition to the Arcam rSeries and allows you to add network audio streaming services and internet radio to any system using DTS PlayFi, Apple Airplayor UPnP enabled music sources.

The Arcam rPlay uses high quality components in a layout optimised for low noise and minimum distortion. The four-layer PCB board sees a maximisation of the quality of the ground plane which further reduces interference between components. The use of multiple low noise individually regulated power supplies ensures that the Arcam rPlay delivers the cleanest signal to the audiophile quality output stage.

The rPlay’s Wi-Fi is compatible with 802.11 b/g/n but it also hosts a wired Ethernet (RJ45) connector for the most reliable results from your network.
