Arcam FMJ D33 DAC

“This is the best DAC Arcam knows how to make; that’s saying something, given that Arcam was there at the point when the DAC was first minted and has been at the leading edge of digital design for more than a quarter of a century. Not only is this the best DAC Arcam can make right now, it is among the tiny handful of best DACs ever made. And Arcam’s roots are showing, because it undercuts all of the other ‘best ever’ by a substantial amount. You might be reading this and thinking it hyperbole; from where I sit, I feel like I’m holding back, but this one comes absurdly highly recommended.”

Alan Sircom, Hifi Issue 88

We would agree with you, Alan. This is a great DAC. When you consider it’s cost, it’s a fantastic DAC.
