As a tribute to DENAFRIPS' 12 years of unparalleled digital audio expertise, the ARCE streamer has been crafted to prioritize sound quality above all else. This remarkable device supports roon Bridge (roon Ready pending), HQPlayer NAA, Airplay, and DLNA, catering to audiophiles seeking diverse playback options.

 

ARCE streamer's capabilities extend beyond its primary features. It offers seamless playback of local files through USB, SD card, and NAS, empowering users to enjoy their music library effortlessly. 

FOUNDATION of GOOD SOUND

A unique Streamer Module - developed by DENAFRIPS engineer in-house - incorporating a Quad-Core AMR Cortex Processor, High Quality Crystal Oscillators, LT Fast Transient Response, Low Noise, and LDO Regulators.

Tailored Operating System (OS) optimized to deliver a euphoric sound experience

The FPGA chip of this product is filled with DENAFRIPS' extensive experience in Digital Signal Processing. Furthermore, the digital signals are safeguarded through Galvanic Isolation using Opto-Couplers.

ARCE offers a choice between two elegant colors, silver and black, both enclosed within a robust anodized aluminum chassis.

 

This sought-after option caters to the preferences of potential customers who desire a compact streamer with the added allure of a silver color variant.

In the ARCE streamer, DENAFRIPS has made a deliberate and significant change by introducing a simplified AC main power socket. Contrary to being a cost-cutting measure, this modification reflects DENAFRIPS' commitment to high-quality power supply as the cornerstone of superior sound.

 

To achieve this goal, DENAFRIPS has gone the extra mile by customizing the AC mains power socket in-house using UPOCC gold-plated copper. In the ARCE,  a non-switched AC mains socket, firmly believing that this step will bring the device even closer to attaining an exceptional level of perfection.

Alongside the UPOCC gold-plated AC mains socket, the ARCE boasts an enhancement in the form of a 60VA O-Core Shielded Transformer. This transformer is meticulously crafted in-house by DENAFRIPS engineers, utilizing UPOCC copper.

 

The oversized 60VA O-Core Shielded Transformer delivers substantial power to the multi-stage linear power supply of the ARCE Streamer. This improvement ensures that the ARCE receives an abundant and stable power supply for optimal performance.
