Britain’s Arcam has announced the ST60, the company’s first network audio player.
The ST60 provides built-in support for Deezer, Napster, Qobuz, Spotify and TIDAL, and can accept audio streamed over a wired or wireless network from both UPnP sources and portable devices via AirPlay2 or Google Cast. It also provides full decoding of MQA and is Roon Ready.
Outfitted with an ESS9038 32-bit/192kHz stereo DAC, the ST60 handles playback of AIFF, ALAC, FLAC and WAV formats. It also has IP and RS232 control for integration with whole-house control systems, including those from Crestron and Control4. Connection options include Ethernet, USB, and Wi-Fi, along with balanced XLR and stereo RCA analog and coaxial and optical digital outputs. The ST60 comes with a hardware remote control, and can be operated using the Arcam MusicLife app.
The Arcam ST60 will be available in late 2020 for $1,499. Check out Arcam’s website for more info.
