“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 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’.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent quality streamer I was looking to upgrade my sono connect something not to expensive and this seem to fit the bill. It was an easy set up but it came with a very short Ethernet cable so had to buy another one. A great sounding piece of kit very neutral sharp sound crisp vocals. The DAC is way better than the sonos only thing that didn’t impress was the Play-Fi app which would cut out it wasn’t as easy to use as my Spotify connect app

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rplay Very good streamer. Not fully convinced by the built in dac but sounds very good through my audiolab mdac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality sound... I have been connecting my laptop and phone to me stereo via a jack cable which is OK. Fairly rubbish sound quality and trailing leads... but having got this home I connected the device via the home WiFi network and the sound quality was immediately improved. The quality of the DAC is far superior to the one found in most laptops and to be able to connect without having to trail a lead across the room is wonderful. Anything I can play on my device - FLAC, WAV, MP3 or high quality streaming, it all works seamlessly. A really cool product that is easy to install. Pros, pretty much everything. Cons, I honestly can't think of one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Bought this about 3 months ago now. One of the best bits of kit I've owned. Gives me a lifetime of incredible music via excellent Tidal streaming, who have just released all ECM's back catalogue. That's me set up for the next year or so

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built Wanted to hard wire straight from my modem to stream Spotify into my Hi fi this ticked all the boxes and plugged into my Rega dac then into my Rega amp the sound was much better than expected . Really happy with this choice .
Date published: 2017-11-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clunky Play-Fi App Sounds fantastic - especially Tidal uncompressed streaming. Really let down by the poor Play-Fi app and no ability to keep the stream live if your phone wanders out of range (apart from Spotify - thanks to Spotify Connect).
