Hello! The review says that if one does not need multiple inputs, this one is better than the DACMagic.Does this apply to Arcam`s rDAC, as prices have dropped and I am hesitant which to by? I have the Furutech ADL Formula 2 USB cable, HK 6550 amp and Boston Acoustics A25.Thank you !
I think I'd go for the rDAC over this HRT, particularly as the Arcam is now being discounted.
Thank you! I have Boston Acoustics A25 speakers with Atlas Equator 2.0 cables, Arcam rPAc with Furutech Formula 2 cable - all because of higly professional Whathifi reviews! The amp is HK 6550, and I was wondering if I get the HRT, would it be any upgrade over the rPAC ( I do not need a headphone amp )? My main concerns about getting the rDACare the bass being unruly, overpowering and boomy, not wel controled - this is the case with the rPAC, and I read the same reviews for the rDAC, as my speakers have too much bass already...
I think the HRT is better than the rPac, but will still be something of a sideways move. It certainly isn't the answer to any bass issues in your system. I'd look at repositioning your speakers and having another look at their stands for that.
Thanks, I repositioned them and I definetly heard an improvement.Besides the bass, would the HRT still be an upgrade over the rPAC ?
I think the HRT is a better sounding unit than the rPac, but if I don't think it's enough of an upgrade in sound quality to justify the additional expense.
Easily the best investment I've ever made to my hifi. Completely changed the way I listen to music!
Would be great if you reviewed the HRT Music Streamer II+ as well, particularly in comparison to the regular model.
Thanks team for a wonderful review.
Simple but simply brilliant sound quality....
Sound quality wise, is this the best dac at this pricepoint? Or is the beresford tc-7510 or the v-dac(without usb connection) a better choice?

A seriously talented performer that has a few design issues
This is a top-notch surround package for the money. It’s a worthy alternative to the award-winning KEF R100 5.1
A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
