Arcam rDac - £300


Arcam, one of the pioneers of off-board DACs re-enters the market. Ed Selley finds out if the wait was worth it

Excellent USB implementation; natural sound; solid build

Can lack pace and attack – only a single optical and coaxial input

Clever design with class-leading USB implementation at a great price

Arcam rDAC Wireless


No longer the default choice at the money, but a worthwhile contender nonetheless

Compact and sturdy; wireless convenience; spacious, up-front sound

Bass can be unruly; sounds better hard-wired

Arcam rDAC


Best DAC ?200-?400, Awards 2011. Arcam has been here before, but never with such mainstream appeal and never at such an aggressive price

Well specified and well finished; substantial, responsive sound from any source

Some system-matching is required to avoid the bass becoming bothersome
