“A brilliant and affordable way to introduce streaming to your hi-fi system” What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

Stream your music for unlimited entertainment

Streaming music means you no longer have to put up with limited choice. Connect the rPlay to your internet hub via Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi and you'll have access to a near limitless supply of music. From Internet radio to Spotify, plus the option of streaming your own digitally stored music, the rPlay controls it all from a single, high quality device.

Compatible with DTS PlayFi, Apple AirPlay and UPnP
DTS PlayFi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app and you'll not only have access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and Napster - all from a single control app. The Arcam also works with Apple's AirPlay system, making it ideal for playing Apple Music from an Apple device. UPnP (Universal Plug 'n Play) makes connecting up compatible music storage devices a cinch - giving you easy access to all your stored music.

Control with free app for Apple iOS or Android
Download the DTS PlayFi app for free and you'll have sophisticated control over all your streamed music. As well as bringing all your streaming sources together, PlayFi offers the potential for full multi-room music. Simply add other PlayFi compatible sources and you'll quickly be able to build up a comprehensive music system around your home - all under the control of a single app.

Top quality DAC built-in
With arguably more experience in developing and making DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) than anyone else, the Arcam rPlay delivers best-in-class sound quality. A premium 24-bit DAC from Texas Instruments gives the musical precision you'd expect from Arcam.

Variable analogue output - connect straight to a power amp or active speakers
As well as coaxial digital and fixed level analogue outputs, the rPlay features handy variable outputs. This means the volume output is app controllable, meaning you don't need a pre-amp. Connect directly to a power amp or active speakers and you've still got full remote control of the volume setting.

Slim and stylish
The sleek and stylish aluminium case is smart and unobtrusive. Equally at home on a hi-fi rack or next to a desktop system, the rPlay is easy to accommodate.

The versatile Arcam rPlay makes streaming a dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple setup; superb sound Two weeks in and very happy at improved sound quality compared to plugging in iPod to aux socket!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flawed product doesn’t live up to Arcam name Very disappointed with this product for two reasons: 1. It doesn’t support gapless replay. That means that any recording where the tracks run into each other (think Sergeant Pepper, Dark Side of the Moon, or many classical recordings) are continually interrupted for about five seconds as the new track is loaded. “Studio quality” it ain’t. 2. The DLNA implementation (how it plays back music from your server) is dreadful. Instead of sending your music straight from the server to the player, it goes from the server to your smart phone, and then from the smart phone to the player - which means that every note has to cross your WiFi network twice, even if you have gone to the trouble of creating a wired connection. And if you take a phone call, or move the phone outside WiFi range, the music cuts out. Useless. On the plus side, setup is very simple, and sound quality is very good when it all comes together. I’ve now sold this on eBay and bought an AURALiC Aries Mini, which is superior in every way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding – sweet, clear music I am using the rPlay via a wired ethernet connection from a Mac to my amp through the rPlay's variable level output and the results are outstanding delivering sweet and clear music at CD quality with instruments and voices well-defined. Setup was easy and wireless playback from my iPad and iPhone, using both the Play-Fi app and Vox apps is also very good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not actually do what it states on the box I can’t fault the ease of set up or how it connects to Tidal, customer support is also excellent but then a truly good product shouldn’t require tech support... my biggest issue is that I purchased this to play 24/192 hi-res files from Tidal and the unit down scales everything! It doesn’t even support MQA which is why I purchased it in the first place, customer support took a while to actually let me know that I can’t use the device for its intended purpose so I can’t even take it back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound easy on the eye and pocket Love the sound I get with this streamer through my Arcam amp I know you can get streamers with a greater DAC but I am pretty sure the depth from this will suit all but the most critical ear! Had a bit of a problem connecting to my hub but found that re-starting the hub via my phone worked a treat, should have tried it earlier! In thihs price tange I thoroughly recommend this piece of kit enjoy>

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Greatly improves listening to streamed music I've been wanting to stream from my iPhone with hi-fi quality for a while and finally bought this in the post Christmas sales. Toss up between the rPlay and Sonos but rest of my stack is Arcam and the reviews were good so opted for rPlay. The setup with the DTS Play-Fi app took a couple of attempts before everything connected but once that was achieved the sound was/is great and I can stream from Spotify and range of other sources. Rest of my family have also installed DTS Play-Fi on their iPhones and iPads so rPlay available to everyone. 4 stars because the setup could have been easier, no issues with the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hi-fi quality streaming Easy to use and set up. I’m currently using over WiFi and it sounds excellent streaming from HQ services eg Deezer, Tidal etc. You can stream via airplay if you have a Mac / iPhone, but personally I like the PlayFi app which includes ‘critical listening mode’.
Date published: 2018-01-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sounds good but... I use this with a NAS and DAC and it sounds good with 'Critical Listening' mode engaged. However using the RPlay app on a smartphone or tablet is a disaster. Arcam say that this will stream 24 192 under their test (presumably performed for them by Volkswagen). In practice, with an IPhone and BT fibre which I suggest is fairly typical of a listening scenario, it does not. Additionally, even when playing cd rips it will occasionally stutter, stop for a bit, lose its place requiring the app to be restarted... The upshot of this is that you never get to listen to an album without this system getting in the way in some fashion and spoiling it for you. I literally have no idea what Arcam think they are doing with this, seriously dropped the ball on this one. I will have to re-buy a used Logitech Squeezebox touch, which although they are upfront about not supporting 24 192, works flawlessly for everything else.
