New Arcam iPhone App - Price Drop on Dongles for rCube


Distinguished Member
To match the new rCube at £350, Arcam have repriced the new PLUS version of the rWand iPod dongle. This streams lossless music to up to 4 x rCubes or rDacs-kw and works in tandem with the new rWand+ iPhone App to simplify and control pairing.

The rWand+ app handles pairing / association of devices and allows the user to direct the iPhone / Pod Touch / Pad Kleer signal to up to 4 rCubes or wireless rDacs.


NEW Arcam rWand+ - £50 (old model was £70)

- includes Free iPhone App

- iPod/Phone/Pad 30-pin wireless music streaming dongle

- whole room coverage, using iDevice as source and controller

Arcam rWave - £80

- amplified USB wireless streaming music dongle for PCs & MACs

- delivers whole house coverage from one main computer

Owners can also stream to Arcam rCube iPod System and the rDAC-kw audiophile DAC using 'Kleer' lossless technology. Arcam say it delivers 'full bandwidth CD quality wireless streaming' and it's highly-resistant to dropout and interference with better sound and signal reliability than Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

Key Features

- stream from iPod/Pad/Phone to rCube - ALL iPods inc Nano and Classic

- stream from PC/Mac to rCube and rDAC-kw

- stream to any Kleer headphone from Sennheiser, Sleek, AKG & more

- whole house coverage from the rWand

- whole room coverage from the rWave

Arcam are keen to point out that no wi-fi network is needed. Unlike Airplay, the rWand+ dongle brings streaming to all iPods, not just the Wifi ones.

The dongles can also share music with to up 4 rCubes OR rDACS or 4 pairs of Kleer headphone from people like Opera, Sennheiser, TDK, Sleek etc and one iPod in one rCube can transmit to three rCubes.
