Not high fidelity

RS, Amazon
23 April 2013
  • Summary: Decent sound for the price, but not high-fidelity. Cannot play loud, when driven at high volumes, it has considerable distortion. I've used it with the Grado 325is (32 ohm), Sennheiser HD650 (300 ohm) and Sennheiser HD600 (300 ohm), driven by a good laptop via USB interface, all tracks flac...

Fantastic little box that delivers the sonic goods!

M. Clive Nolan, Amazon
4 November 2012
  • Summary: I travel with work a lot and wanted to listed to "audiophile" quality music at the end of the day to unwind. By chance I came across a competing product (the Audioquest Dragonfly) and that sparked my interest in the rPAC because I am not a fan of large USB devices sticking out of my laptop seemingly...

BRILLIANT SOUND

D. M. Pearce, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: Once you have discovered FLAC downloads (try Linn on Google) you will never want to go back to CDs. This gadget attached to your laptop makes a pretty portable and very effective way to listen to the best quality sound at a very reasonable cost.

Well built, easy to set up, and a joy to use - It really improves my PCs audio quality via HiFi headphones

  • Summary: This Arcam rPAC is very sturdily made with a heavy metal case and a rubberised non slip base plate. Setting it up was very easy, I just plugged in the supplied USB2 lead and the drivers were automatically loaded by my 64-bit Windows 7 PC, and the rPAC was ready to use - well it was after a quick...

HTPC to good old analog stereo - blissful link

J. Eddelbuettel, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: After assembling a Home Theater PC with BluRay drive and the sufficently potent AMD LLano A4-3400 on an ASUS board I was stuck with the truly abominable VIA on-board sound. With purely 2-ch analog stereo equipent (a good pair of Canton speakers and a sturdy Yamaha amp) the only other option for...

Very good - only when it works though!!! KEEPS DROPPING

Spencer!, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I've had this little device for a while now and it makes a big difference to any audio I play from my iMac (27 Mid 2011) As others have mentioned, it keeps dropping. I can listen to a track fine, however when it finishes I get a loud hiss/static noise and then the rPAC stops working.

Sounds good but keeps dropping iMac sound - support bad

PaulW, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this product a few months back. I use it on my iMac OS X 10-8.2. It improved the Mac sound dramatically. I was really delighted with it until I noticed it was unable to keep delivering the sound when I moved from say one radio station to another.

Arjan, Amazon

  • Summary: I also suffer from discontinued playback after switching audio source on my Mac. I've emailed Arcam today and am keen to receive a TRUE SOLUTION from Arcam themselves. When replugged the rPac however is a huge improvement on sound quality! Regards, Arjan
