Arcam ST60 Digital Streamer / DAC
Stream from Tidal or Qobuz or a NAS, this Roon Ready, MQA-capable streaming DAC has balanced outputs and Wi-Fi
The ST60 is the perfect companion for the HDA range of stereo amplifiers and is also fully compatible with the MusicLife app. The DAC is based on the acclaimed ESS9038 Sabre chip which offers lots of detail and microdynamics without sounding etched. This being Arcam, there's a lot of attention paid to a low-noise power supply, something that's crucial for digital sources.
Connect to your preamp, integrated amp, or use the onboard volume control and connect directly to a power amp. If you do get an external DAC, there are coax and optical digital outputs, allowing the ST60 to be used as a streamer only.
Digital inputs let you connect a TV or gaming console, allowing your high-quality audio system to blend with the main console in a living room.
Critical listeners will love that the DAC comes with a number of digital filters, and also offers XLR balanced analog outputs. Tidal Studio users will appreciate that it is MQA capable, allowing a full unfold of Master Quality Authenticated content.
