Arcam Solo rDacPrice: $479


Vince said: Arcam’s Solo rDac has exceeded my expectations for an inexpensive DAC. With a sleek silver-aluminum chassis and a single button on top, it’s a good-looking, easy-to-use audio component. Although I didn’t find that it significantly improved the performance of my Oppo Blu-ray player, its forte was playing music through its USB connection.

Great Buy

Read the SoundStage! Access review.

The gist: Asynchronous USB DAC that's a solid deal.
