Arcam re-entered the Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) market with the introduction of the rDAC a few years ago. The stand-alone DAC concept was not new to the Arcam team as they were the first company to ever launch an affordable outboard DAC back in 1989. Building on the rDAC's success and incorporating feedback from enthusiastic rDAC owners the Arcam engineering team have produced the irDAC an enhanced design that raises the performance bar and is delightfully simple to use.The irDAC so called because it features infra-red remote control owes much to the development programme behind the reference D33 DAC. The irDAC comes packed with cutting edge technology that brings high-end performance to a wide array of sources. Its outstanding sound quality will deliver sheer musical enjoyment for all music lovers.The Arcam engineering team gains a great deal of new insight while developing the class leading FMJ D33. Areas such as isolation of digital and analogue stages ultra-low noise power supplies and direct coupled signal paths make a big difference to outright performance. The irDAC uses the outstanding Burr Brown 1796 DAC and 8 separately regulated power supplies to ensure class leading performance that are unmatched in the irDACs price category. Jitter reduction is an obsession within the Arcam engineering team. The circuits developed for the D33 and deployed in the irDAC produce a signal that is almost entirely 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 direct iPod connection taking the digital signal direct from an Apple device for optimal sound quality. All of the inputs can be controlled through the irDACs IR remote handset that also controls PCs MACs and iPod / iPhone / iPad devices via the HID (Human interface device) controller.
