Arcam irDAC


Product of the Year, Awards 2013. A brilliantly talented DAC with bags of sonic appeal – its main rivals should be worried

Tremendous sense of timing ; A full-bodied, precise and punchy sound ; Loads of detail ; Wide selection of inputs ; Excellent build quality

Cheap-feeling remote control

Some products are impressive from the moment they’re powered up. The irDAC is one of those – the way it sucks you in and encourages to keep listening is a rare talent and one you can’t afford to ignore.

At a time when most companies are offering us DACs that are digital to analog convertors with something else in the mix - preamps, headphone amps, streamers etc, the irDAC is a model of simplicity. The Arcam is ‘just’ a DAC but where it matters, it is...
