Arcam irDAC Digital to Analogue Converter

Condition: Ex Demo

Arcam irDac DAC uses an outstanding Burr Brown 1796 DAC, with 6 digital inputs and infra-red remote control.

Key Features

  • 6 Digital inputs
  • Class I & II USB
  • Direct iPod input
  • Burr Brown/TI PCM1796 DAC
  • IR remote control
  • High-end audio circuitry
  • Stylish cast aluminium casework

Arcam irDac DAC, so called because it now has infra-red remote control,owes much to the work that was done on the reference D33 DAC. The irDAC comes packed with cutting edge technology and features that will benefit the most demanding user. We have gained a lot of knowledge developing the class leading FMJ D33. Areas like isolation of the digital and analogue stages, ultra-low noise power supplies and a direct coupled signal path make a big difference. We use the outstanding Burr Brown 1796 DAC as well as 8 separately regulated power supplies to ensure class leading performance that we believe will be unmatched in this price category. Jitter reduction is an obsession within our engineering team. They have learnt a huge amount about this technology from the D33 and have applied this experience in the irDAC to produce a signal that is almost jitter free.

The irDAC is designed to be the heart of a digital system and can be connected to a host of different types of digital sources and connections. This includes asynchronous USB and a direct iPod input that that takes the digital signal direct from an Apple device to optimise the sound quality. All of the inputs can be controlled through an IR remote that will also control PC, MACs and iPod®/iPhone®/iPad® via the HID(Human interface device) control.
