Arcam have produced excellent quality hi-fi products for a number of years but have only now decided to join the sea of products produced for the iPod. Without going into the minutiae of its technical abilities you can take it that not only is it beautifully and robustly built but above all performs supremely well sonically. But therein lies a small area of concern. With a trend in current mastering techniques to make music transients hit the maximum possible digital signal level of 0dBFS distortion can often be present in the source material and coping with this fact means masking the deficiencies or revealing them in all their glory. The rCube is so good at revealing detail that you may be shocked to hear distortion in sharp transients rearing their ugly head - not a fault of course of the rCube. Your only recourse is to rip your files using Apple Lossless format to at least minimise any further degradation and maybe to reduce the level of some troublesome clipped files first by at least -3dB before importing into iTunes.
Another factor I have found very important is the placement of the rCube. Although you are actively encouraged to place it near a corner you may well have to experiment with placement as this will affect the overall sound considerably - and in some instances will sound distinctly mediocre, and at nearly £500 mediocre should not enter the vocabulary. My first placement was on a sturdy wood cabinet 60cm from the corner of the room wall.Read more ›
My main HiFi system is Arcam based, but that's rarely used as it's in with the main family TV and having my entire music collection on an iPod 160Gb Classic is easier than rummaging through piles of CDs. So I bought the rCube, after comparisons with the B&W Zeppelin. My first rCube landed with crippling WiFi fault [no remote working and 2 feet range on the rWand, might as well use a cable].Read more ›
Hey this is now a bargain compared to the overpriced B&W units. Looks good and sounds as good ad it looks!!!
