    Arcam irDAC-II USB DAC


    The heart of a digital system...

    The new irDAC-II comes packed with cutting-edge technology and features that will benefit the most demanding user. It now has added Bluetooth connectivity, a headphone output and DSD128 support. When developing class-leading DACs, areas such as isolation of the digital and analogue stages, ultra-low noise power supplies and a direct coupled signal path make a big difference.


    Arcam use the outstanding ESS Sabre DAC to obtain performance that is unmatched in its price category. Jitter reduction is an obsession within the Arcam engineering team; they have applied their experience in the irDAC-II to produce a signal that is almost jitter-free.


    The headphone output stage has been taken from the flagship A49 amplifier and is capable of driving the most demanding of headphones. Both fixed and variable line outputs are also available, allowing for ultimate system building flexibility.


    The irDAC-II 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 Bluetooth. All of the inputs can be controlled through an IR remote that will also give you transport control of a PC or Mac USB source via the HID (Human Interface Device) control.
