Arcam’s new rWand dongle offers high quality wireless streaming to any iPod, even those without Wi-Fi.
The Arcam rWand is designed to be used with any iPod’s 30-pin connector, as well as all iPhones and iPads.
Using Kleer lossless technology it offers full bandwidth, ‘CD quality’ wireless streaming. Arcam says it will deliver superior sound quality and signal reliability than either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Arcam has also released the rWave USB wireless streaming dongle which performs the same trick for your Mac or PC using the same technology.
Either device can be used to stream music to an Arcam rCube iPod dock and the rDAC-kw wireless DAC. Music can be shared with up to four rCubes or rDACs and they’re also compatible with a selection of Kleer-compatible headphones from Sennheiser, Sleek and AKG.
The Arcam rWand is available now for £70, the the rWave costs £80.
