The airDAC benefits from Arcam's more than twenty years of digital audio expertise and use the finest quality parts in a layout that is optimized for low noise and distortion. A dejittering design that Arcam have used in many of the reference class FMJ products is applied to all inputs. The four-layer PCB allows our designers to maximize the quality of the ground plane in order to further reduce interference between components. The use of multiple low noise separately regulated power supplies ensures that we get the cleanest signal to the audiophile quality output stage. The airDAC's WiFi is compatible with 802.11 b/g/n but it also hosts a wired Ethernet (RJ45) connector for the most reliable results from your network. UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) is now reliable and easy for non-experts to install and use, so we have added it to our range of streaming options. Our latest iPhone/iPad app - Songbook - is a UPnP music player that can be downloaded FREE from the Apple App Store and used with your airDAC. Android users can use a number of UPnP music players such as PlugPlayer and Bubble. UPnP offers the possibility of playing lossless files up to 24bit / 96kHz in resolution (currently AirPlay is restricted to playing Apple Lossless files up to 16bit /48kHz). These can be streamed via UPnP to the airDAC from your computer, NAS drive or Music Server. In addition you can use AirPlay with iDevices running iOS7, to send music to your Hi-Fi system from Internet radio services like vTuner and TuneIn Radio, as well as music streaming services like Spotify and Qobuz. The airDAC is one of the simplest ways to enjoy your favorite music from your UPnP device, iPhone/iPad or computer running iTunes and brings Arcam quality sound to a whole new generation of music lovers.
