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.

bwd's picture

It would be great to have this. I have converted to mostly computer playback and this will be a great upgrade from the headphone/RCA cable interface.



FSonicSmith's picture

Dac's are coming out of the woodwork. It is not the chips that count. It is not the interface. It is the power supply, the grounding, and the output stages. That's my humble opinion. Having auditioned some very expensive DACs lately, I am still convinced that vinyl is better. I said "it's not the chips that count" but what I really mean is that none of the currently available chips succeed in being perfect at clocking and being immune to jitter and being able to recreate a sound wave perfectly. Inexpensive DACs like this designed by engineers that make compromises wisely might well be the way to go, because even the DACs that do everything right still sound digital. Felt compelled to express this, though my first instinct was to simply post "I'll gladly take it and give it a try".

Buck1's picture

Give it to me now!

I've been looking at DAC/integrated amp options extensively and have found nothing but headaches.  If I won this I could focus on a high quality amp and finally break into hifi audio.
