Arcam rDAC Sweepstakes

Register to win a Arcam rDAC audiophile-grade Digital to Analog Converter (MSRP $479) we are giving away.

According to Arcam, the rDAC's sleek cast aluminum case, hides the latest digital technology, including the outstanding Wolfson 8741 DAC. With coaxial, optical and USB inputs, the rDAC renders music with stunning accuracy and musicality.

Uses for the rDAC are endless. CD Players, Internet Radios, cable boxes and game stations can be connected via coaxial or optical leads to deliver a dramatic increase in sound quality. PCs and Macs can feed the rDAC via USB using the Asynchronous USB re-clocking circuitry to almost eliminates the jitter and noise associated with music in computer environments.

The results from the highly affordable rDac are thrilling regardless of the digital audio source.

This would look and sound superb in our system. Bainer's groto would be the perfect resting place for this DAC

Long time reader of the magazine, When the local magazine store closed I have to read Stereophile on-line. Not as good as a hands on magazine but what can you do? I wish I could afford a DAC for my audio system. Maybe I can win one.

I have used the rDAC for about a month and fell in love with it. It played all genres of music extremely well without pushing any frequency up or down. Transparent? Possibly, but I would use the word 'realistic' more to identify the sound signature. The wireless option is a very thoughtfull addition and gives you the freedom to use any source for your music.

Would love to have it back in my system.

Looks like it will fit on my rack.  SO, thanks.

This would be really useful for me right now.

Due to the crisis I had to sell my entire analog/digital front end, pre/power amp as well as my entire lp and cd collection.

The upside is computer audio is really improving by leaps and bounds. My current system is my desktop PC connected via Wireworld Ultraviolet to an HRT Musicstreamer II and a vintage Sansui 6060 reciever circa 1977. Speakers are the Wharfedale Diamond 10.1

The sound is really close to what I had before i.e. Clearaudio Solution/Kuzma Stogi Reference, Clearaudio Virtuoso, Audio Research PH3, Cayin CDT15a, Reference Line passive attenuator, Dynaco ST70II (heavily modified), Definitive Technology DR7 tower (heavily modified)Transparent and Nordost cables.

I'm surprised at how good computer audio is at the moment and I'm excited to find out how much better it can be.

I'm writing to you from here at the orphanage...looking into the eager faces of the children who have suffered for years with a brand x dac...they keep chanting: "Please kind sir, can we not listen to the computer music through an rDAC?" I'm choking back tears as I write this heart-felt plea-mail. I'm sure you will understand. Think of the children...
