Arcam irDAC and SR250
Some big news from Arcam at this year's CES included the launch of the second generation irDAC. The model features new internal circuitry and headphone amplifier output, aptX Bluetooth support and a new ESS SABRE DAC.
Also on the Arcam stand was the SR250 stereo AV receiver that combines the performance of a stereo amplifier with the connections of an AV receiver. It's just gone on sale in the UK for £2500.
Moon Neo ACE
Moon had a new addition to its Neo range of components at CES 2016 in the form of the ACE integrated amplifier. It combines an integrated amp with high-resolution streamer and DAC that lets you play from a variety of sources.
Audio-Technica unveiled three new pairs of headphones in Las Vegas: the ATH-SR5 on-ears and their Bluetooth counterpart, the ATH-SR5BT. They were launched alongside a new pair of noise-cancelling headphones, the ATH-MSR7NC which come with new omni-directional noise-cancelling technology that claims to have no effect on sound quality.
Harman Kardon Omni+ speakers
Harman Kardon brought its updated range of Omni multi-room speakers to CES. The new Omni+ range offers more speakers than before and hi-res audio support. Several speakers can also be connected together to create a 2.1 or 5.1 surround sound system.
MQA has received a lot of attention at CES so far, but 7digital has given us the news we really wanted to hear. The music provider has announced it will be the first to offer MQA music to consumers and says it already has files from indie labels ready on its web store and mobile apps.
