Dear Evolution-ites... In our continuing efforts to educate the audio/video masses, we are pleased to offer this series of meaningful dissertations from our resident 2-Channel Guru, John Guidi. It shall be named -
Arcam ''r'' Series ...
They're Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat !
For those individuals fortunate enough to visit our store during the Summer months, you probably heard our system featuring the flagship Arcam D33 Digital to Analog Converter
. It has features and sonics that rival $10K + DACs but is only $3200. Like the expensive data Conversion Systems on the market it sounds like digits with'' those nasty corners taken off''. In comparison to most D to A's it makes their digital replay sound hard and fatiguing. Arcam
has a reputation of making great sound DACs affordable and in the past several months has released a series of sweet sounding small chassis DACs and an iPod / iPad Dock.
is an Asynchronus USB DAC and headphone amp capable of driving high quality earbuds and some of the more efficient headphones on the market. It has + and - volume control buttons for headphones and fixed level R & L channel RCA outputs to connect to you receiver or integrated amp.
is a SPDIF DAC (coax / optical) to upgrade the sound quality of almost any digital audio source such as an older CD/DVD player. Don't dump your old 30 lb flagship player and replace it with a 4 lb piece of junk, just replace the DAC. Both units retail for only $249 each.
uses the same Ti / Burr Brown DAC in a dock with not only analog (RCA) outputs but a coax digital out and HDMI video output. At $299 retail it will surprise you with its musicality unless your iPod is loaded with over compressed ''poo poo'' files.
The entire ''r'' series has a solid, high quality fit & finish to match their high quality sound and are all genuine ''bargains''.
