I have an Arcam Alpha 6 CD player. Getting a bit old now, but I can confirm that, generally-speaking, Arcam make some very tasty high-midrange HiFi seperates. They're a manufacturer you can bank on to deliver good gear.
Don't know about this USB item though - as amf123 says, it does appear to be something of a departure from Arcam's normal territory. I hope they're not trying to make a fast buck on a questionable product. That'd be a great shame for a company with such an excellent pedigree.
Is this a new edition/vesion of the rPAC, say, RPAC v.2???
Something puzzles me here, because last year I saw some reviews/impressions on this site and they were not very positive ....
Such a world famous company ... I can't believe it ...
Am I missing something something here?
