ARCAM launch the rPlay - DTS Play-Fi® music streamer
High performance - The rPlay is a new addition to the rSeries range that allows you to add network audio streaming services and internet radio to any hi-fi or home cinema system using DTS Play-Fi®, Apple Airplay® or UPnP enabled music sources. DTS Play-Fi® supports high resolution audio - 24bit/192kHz* from both wired and wireless networks. DTS Play-Fi® technology enables multi-room audio streaming from the world's most popular music services including Spotity, Tidal, Deezer & Napster as well as thousands of internet radio stations. DTS is also working with Amazon to bring the Alexa service to the DTS Play-Fi® brand for 2017! The rPlay uses the Texas Instruments PCM5102 DAC and is a considerable leap forward on any currently available add-on music streamer!
ARCAM launch the rPhono – high-performance MM/MC phono stage
Low-noise components, high-quality sound - The rPhono benefits from ARCAM’s more than forty years of analogue audio expertise and uses the finest quality parts in a layout that is optimised for low noise and minimum distortion. The multi-layer PCB allows our designers to maximise the quality of the ground plane so that interference between components is further reduced. The use of multiple, low-noise, individually regulated power supplies typically found in much more expensive amplifiers ensures the rPhono delivers the cleanest signal to the audiophile quality output stage and therefore gives the purest balance of sound.
Flexible – the rPhono has fully adjustable input capacitance for moving magnet cartridges and for moving coil cartridge users they’ll be able to benefit from precision impedance (50-550Ω) matching using high-quality trim devices. An optionally selectable low frequency “rumble” filter eliminates the effects of warping or pressing irregularities, which can be present on some vinyl.
