  • Summary: As near CD quality as I could have hoped. Stays connected and does the job. Nice piece of kit.
  • Pros: Works like a charm. Decent on-board DAC. CDs ripped in Apple Lossless sound very good. Great services as usual from Crutchfield.
  • Cons: Odd configuration with cable attachments at either end.

Expensive but finally Wow.

  • Summary: This is my third Bluetooth stereo adaptor. Finally, I'm happy! My first was a NXG-BTR, about $40. Didn't sound too bad, and I thought it was a necessary compromise to run the (basic) Bluetooth compression algorithm. Eventually, this stopped pairing with my primary source although it paired with everything else just fine. Range was 25-30' including one wall.
  • Pros: Wireless Range was best of three I tried, even one which was marketed for extra range. Amazing. Frequency range is in the datasheet - try to find that anywhere else. Sig gen test backs that up. Implements the highest quality BT digital transmission codec: aptX. Although backwards compatible with other lesser implementations of A2DP protocol; to get the best sound check your BT audio source for atpX encoding. My Galaxy S4 has it. Or buy this now and get aptX in your ne...
  • Cons: Weird connector locations. Wires on the 'front' and the 'back', makes a curious design statement. Physical separation can be good for signal quality in the box, but an odd thing to position on shelf. I'd like it better at $149, but frankly I haven't found anything else of this quality. Anything less wastes my speakers and my time.

Stunning sound quality, easy to hook-up

  • Summary: Granted this is my first DAC so I don't have any other direct comparisons. Up to this point I was running my laptop and iPod directly into my receiver via the headphone jack. My system is modest being just a Denon receiver and set of Paradigm tower speakers. I wanted a wireless DAC and Arcam rBlink being Bluetooth sold me. I didn't imagine it would make that big of a difference to the sound quality. It was incredible!

Excellent Product and Great Service (as always)

SteveT, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Installs in an instant, works flawlessly. The sound, streaming from my MacBook Air, is much better than expected - pretty close to CD quality. The rBlink is compact but very solid, and I appreciate that all cables, including both RCA and optical cables, are supplied, together with multiple AC plugs. Crutchfield service was, as always, perfect - easy to order, delivery sooner than expected, and well packaged.
  • Pros: It just works.
  • Cons: None, really, although it might have been nice if all connections were on the same side of the unit. With connections on opposite sides, there's no way to hide the cables.
