Arcam ST60: Debut streaming player from the british company
HARMAN presents the first network audio player from the Arcam brand – Arcam ST60 . It is a high-end model that allows you to stream high-definition audio from all major services including Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify, Napster and Deezer, as well as from local network storage, while maintaining jitter levels below 20 picoseconds.
“Continuous development of streaming services makes high-definition music content more accessible every year. For those who value quality sound and the sophisticated British signature of Arcam devices, we’ve created a streaming audio player that supports all modern online platforms. Of course, local network playback is also possible, including NAS-drives or devices via wireless protocols Chromecast and Airplay 2 – all without loss of quality and at the highest level, ” – Evgeny Konov, CEO, HARMAN Russia.
Arcam ST60 is based on the ESS 9038K2M Saber DAC, which can be considered a tradition for the brand. When connected via digital channels, this audio processor can handle signals up to 32-bit / 192 kHz. When working with Tidal Arcam ST60 supports MQA, AIFF, ALAC, FLAC and WAV codecs, as well as available Lossy formats.
The player is equipped with a full range of network interfaces: Ethernet, USB, Wi-Fi and even RS232, which allows you to control the device via smart home terminals controlled by Crestron or Control4.
The rear panel of the unit contains balanced and unbalanced analog outputs, coaxial and optical digital outputs, which provide optimal flexibility for connecting the Arcam ST60 to a variety of systems. For best results, it is recommended to use the player with Arcam HDA series amplifiers.
The network player can be controlled using the supplied remote control or via the MusicLife mobile application available on both iOS and Android platforms. All popular streaming services and a music library located on home network devices are available inside the application.
To build a multi-room system with an ST60 player, certification and support for the Roon platform is provided.
High quality workmanship, attention to detailing and a recognizable design of the series will make it easy to integrate the ST60 into an existing system and expand its network functionality.
A bright, full-color display on the front panel provides all the information you need to play songs.
