Using audiophile grade components and more than 25 years of digital audio experience, Arcam have engineered the rLink to be a simple, "plug and play" device. Simply connect either an optical or coaxial cable from the digital output of your device and a pair of analogue cables from the rLink to your HiFi system then switch on and enjoy!

Outperform Expensive Proprietary Streamers
Take a decent under £200 streamer like a Logiitech Squeezebox Touch - add an rLink. Compare to £1000 to £2000 one box streaming devices. You will be very surprised at the result, as good, if not better sound, more flexibilty, no brand lock-in and a fraction of the price
