Arcam irDAC - Black Product Information:

Soon after the birth of the CD player Arcam was the first company to add outboard digital to analogue (DAC) conversion as a sonic upgrade. The result was a dramatic increase in sound quality and its’ “Black Box” DAC went on to define a whole new product category.


In recent years computer and streaming audio has added to the popularity of the outboard DAC. In response Arcam have underlined their position at the forefront of this technology with the new rDac.


Simple to look at, the irDac’s sleek cast aluminum casework hides the very latest digital conversion using, at its core, the outstanding 8741 IC from Wolfson Microelectronics. Offering coaxial, optical or USB digital inputs the irDac renders music with stunning accuracy and delivers a performance of thrilling musicality.


Uses for the irDac are almost endless. Internet radio, set-top boxes and game stations can be connected via coaxial or optical leads to receive a dramatic increase in sound quality. PCs and Mac computers running music programs such as iTunes® or Windows Media Player can feed the irDac via its USB input where special re-clocking circuitry has been deployed almost eliminating the jitter (timing inaccuracies) and noise usually associated with music in the computer environment.


To achieve this Arcam have teamed up with dCS (Data Conversion Systems), licensing their Asynchronous USB Technology*. This unique system is usually reserved for ultra high-end HiFi and professional audio applications. Arcam and dCS have had a long and fruitful relationship that goes back to the highly innovative Alpha 9 & CD23 versions of dCS’s Ring DAC.


The dCS technology allows a precision clock to drastically reduce the level of jitter from USB music sources and delivers a massive improvement in sound quality over the standard USB ‘adaptive’ system. The design of precision clock circuits and general digital and analogue audio engineering are some of Arcam’s key strengths. The results from the highly affordable irDac are stunning regardless of the digital audio source.
