Arcam unveiled his very first music streamer. According to the manufacturer, the ST60 must meet all the requirements of modern streaming.
The new Arcam ST60 from the British brand Arcam (now operating under Samsung) has of course no problem with music services such as Tidal, Qobus, Spotify, Deezer and Napster. And if that doesn’t inspire you enough, compatibility with Apple AirPlay 2 and Google Chromecast guarantees even more listening pleasure.
Do you happen to have a huge collection of music on your NAS? No problem: UPnP makes playback a breeze. Furthermore, the Arcam ST60 is also Roon Ready, and full decoding of MQA is no problem either. By the way, Roon Ready also makes things like multiroom possible, so you can really do anything with the Arcam ST60.
The Arcam ST60 can handles file formats such as FLAC, WAV, ALAC and AIFF plus various lossy file formats. If you would like to integrate it into your home automation project, it is good to know that I/P RS232 is supported, including Control4 and Creston. As far as connections are concerned, USB, balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA are at your disposal. And, of course, coaxial and optical digital outputs are not lacking either. Basically you operate the Arcam ST60 via AirPlay, Chromecast or the Arcam MusicLife app. If you find all that a bit too trendy, then there is also a traditional remote control.
The ST60 is expected to appear on the market this winter, for an amount of £1199.
