Introducing ARCAM’s all new audio disc player with UPnP and CIFS streaming up to 24-bit/192kHz. This player once again raises the performance bar and is undoubtedly ARCAM’s finest audio disc spinner to date!
The boldness of that statement is backed up in part with the employment of the ESS Sabre 9038 reference DAC technology as well as a high precision re-clocking system and a specially designed power supply. The player has single-ended and balanced outputs and also comes with a brand new learning backlit infra-red handset.
The product can be controlled over IP and can be controlled by ARCAM’s IOS app, Musiclife or by RS232 control. The CDS50 also has 2x DAC inputs, 1x optical and 1x SPDIF for even greater flexibility!
This player is the direct replacement to the CDS27.
CD/SACD all work well but treble can be fierce and driven. Arcan should enable chips filters to tame its aggressive sound. Streaming very good with Tidal Quboz etc but accessing menus needs much better instructions from Arcam. Not a machine for the novice.
