Arcam’s most advanced CD, digital audio and network streaming player to date. In a sense, there is no such thing as digital audio. You’d have to be a particularly boring superhero to have ears that can decode the millions of 1s and 0s that make up your CD collection or iTunes library.
Regardless of the source – be it a laptop, a CD player, a smartphone or a USB stick – the result is just a vibration in your speakers. In other words: In the end, everything is analog.
High quality audio
When playing back a digital format, the DAC (digital-to-analog converter) is probably the most important component. Arcam spares you most of the science, but that’s what translates otherwise lifeless binary code into audible sound energy. Bit depth is an important measure of audio quality.
So if you listen to a 24-bit WAV copy of your favorite album through a DAC that only converts to 16-bit, much of the detail will be lost. That’s why Arcam has equipped the entire HDA range with 32-bit DACs – the most commonly used bit depth in digital recording – so you’re guaranteed to get the full sonic picture of what the artist intended.
