Engineered by Arcam, and using the aptX® transmission system, the rBlink allows any Bluetooth equipped music device to quickly and easily send music straight to a HiFi system with stunning quality.

The rBlink uses a high-end PCM 5102 DAC to convert music to a line level output ready for connection to a whole host of audio systems. Installation is easy with a simple pairing system for new devices. Music is delivered by Arcam electronics so you can be sure of world-class sound quality too!

The rBlink comes housed in a stylish yet rugged cast aluminium case and is small and discreet enough to sit proudly next to your HiFi system just getting on with the job of delivering great music.

 
 

rhead -from $599

Arcam has always been known for producing class-leading integrated amplifiers, all of which featured excellent headphone stages. The rHead continues that tradition, but n the highly specialised area of discrete analogue headphone amplification in a small, solidly and beautifully built unit designed to complement the audio system of any headphone lover.

The rHead is a true linear class A design, resulting in absolutely no crossover distortion for the purest sound. Extensive care has been taken to optimise the layout and areas like multiple ultra-low noise power supplies and a fully direct coupled signal path make a big difference. Also, the volume control is an ultra-linear analogue resistive ladder device, as used in the flagship A49, which eliminates tracking errors which can be found in normal potentiometer-based volume controls. 

The rHead is more than capable of driving the most demanding of headphones. Both RCA and XLR inputs (switchable) are available, as well as both 3.5 and 6.35mm sockets, allowing for ultimate headphone listening flexibility. 

 
 

rphono -from $599

The rPhono benefits from Arcam’s more than forty years of analogue audio expertise and uses the finest quality parts in a layout that is optimized for low noise and minimum distortion. The multi-layer PCB allows our designers to maximize the quality of the ground plane so that interference between components is further reduced. The use of multiple, low-noise, individually regulated power supplies ensures the rPhono delivers the cleanest signal to the audiophile quality output stage.

Featuring a wealth of features specifically designed for optimal matching of your turntable’s cartridge, the rPhono is the perfect solution for the vinyl lover. Moving coil users benefit from precision impedance matching using high-quality trimmers instead of discrete steps, while moving magnet users have a wide variety of capacitance options. An optionally selectable low frequency “rumble” filter eliminates the effects of warping or pressing irregularities, which can be present on some vinyl.

Precision components give excellent RIAA response and classleading performance figures, meaning the rPhono will delight all music-lovers.

The rPhono is a simple way to improve the performance regardless of turntable and brings Arcam quality sound to any system.

 
 

rplay -from $599

The rPlay is the latest addition to the rSeries and allows you to add network audio streaming services and internet radio to any system using DTS PlayFi, Apple Airplay® or UPnP enabled music sources. It also features an SPDIF output that can be connected to an AVR, such as the AVR850.

The rPlay benefits from Arcam’s more than twenty years of digital audio expertise and use the finest quality parts in a layout that is optimised for low noise and minimum distortion. The four-layer PCB allows our designers to maximise the quality of the ground plane in order to further reduce interference between components. The use of multiple low noise individually regulated power supplies ensures the rPlay delivers the cleanest signal to the audiophile quality output stage. As well as a fixed line level analogue output, the rPlay also features a variable analogue output which uses the same volume control as the A49 flagship amplifier.

The rPlay is one of the simplest ways to enjoy streaming audio services regardless of platform and brings Arcam quality sound to a whole new generation of music lovers. 

 
 

irdac II -from $749

Arcam re-entered the audio DAC market with the introduction of the rDAC a few years ago. This concept was not new to Arcam as we were the first company to launch an outboard DAC way back in 1987. Building on the rDAC’s success and incorporating feedback from enthusiastic rDAC owners it was clear that our engineering team could produce an enhanced design that would raise the performance bar and improve ease of use by a significant margin over the rDAC. This was followed and further improved upon with the irDAC.

The new irDAC-II continues the story adding Bluetooth connectivity, headphone output and DSD128 support. The irDAC-II comes packed with cutting edge technology and features that will benefit the most demanding user. We have gained a lot of knowledge developing class leading DACs. Areas like isolation of the digital and analogue stages, ultralow noise power supplies and a direct coupled signal path make a big difference. We use the outstanding ESS Sabre DAC to obtain performance that we believe will be unmatched in this price category. Jitter reduction is an obsession within our engineering team. They have applied their experience in the irDAC-II to produce a signal that is almost jitter free. The headphone output stage has been taken from the flagship A49 amplifier and is capable of driving the most demanding of headphones. Both fixed and variable line outputs are also available, allowing for ultimate system building flexibility.
