Meet the award-winning Arcam rPAC, the Personal Audio Converter that will transform your computer-based music - at home, at work, or on the move.
We're all playing more music from computers - stored on their hard drives or streamed from online services such as Spotify – but Macs and PCs simply aren't optimised for audio enjoyment.
The rPAC is a pocket-sized solution. It features hi-fi-grade hardware and software engineering, specifically designed to enhance your laptop or desktop listening. From low-bitrate internet radio to better-than-CD-quality downloads, you'll hear more of the music you love.
And it's not just about music: the rPAC can boost all your computer entertainment, from gaming and movies to catch-up TV services, such as BBC iPlayer and Sky Go.
Simply connect the rPAC to your computer (Windows XP, 7 or Mac OSX - please note Linux is not supported by the rPAC) using the supplied USB cable, then either on to an audio system via a standard RCA lead (also included), or out to headphones. Lovers of the latter are well served by the rPAC, which features a high-quality headphone amp, complete with volume controls.
It's that simple. No batteries or mains needed. We even give you a carry case to help you on your way to better audio, anywhere.
