Arcam rDock-uni iPod/iPhone/iPad Lightning Connect [Expired]


no longer for sale

After shifting to digital music, in order to listen to Apple gear through my home stereo, I initially plugged into the headphone jack and ran that into my system. That’s clearly the worst approach one can take with digital music.  While listening is subjective, I felt this rDock-uni made the most dramatic difference in sound quality than any other system modification I made to that point. The harshness of the digitized music is eliminated, providing a "warmth" and smoothness, making music far more listenable. There’s greater separation between the instruments, allowing each to occupy its own space in the music. You can hear the detail of unique percussion instruments and fingers sliding on guitar strings like never before, bringing an entirely new life to songs. And the bass, whether upright or electric, is punchy and tight as intended, vs. rambling its way through the song in a low end, rumbling drone.  Here's just one roof many positive reviews:

This DAC was purchased new a little over a year ago.  It’s been discontinued and is very difficult to find for sale as folks won’t let go of them.  I’m shifting my approach a bit, upgrading with more equipment from Arcam so I don’t need two DACs.  It works perfectly, is cosmetically as new, with remote, box and manual. 

From Arcam:

This audiophile dock for i-devices features the lightning connector and will allow the music lover to listen at a quality level that no other dock can achieve. The rDock-uni will also allow the user to connect their existing 30-pin device to the dock via a rear-mounted USB connector.
