The airDAC benefits from use of the finest quality parts in a layout that is optimised 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 quality maximisation of the ground plane in order to further reduce interference between components. The use of multiple low noise separately regulated power supplies ensures 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. It comes in an elegant cast aluminium enclosure that reduces microphony effects and has a non-slip rubber base.
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 Spotifyand Qobuz.
