The digital age paved the way for the optimal convenience of wireless, hassle-free audio streaming. Now, as digital memory becomes more and more accessible, high quality formats are becoming far more in-demand, as is the need for a high quality, uncompromising system to be able to play these files in the convenient fashion that we've all become accustom.
Many companies have designed and built streaming separates and wireless speakers, capable of taking your favourite tracks of varying qualities through a number of different wireless streaming avenues. These include Bluetooth, Bluetooth aptX, Apple AirPlay, DLNA and other WiFi based technologies.

Brilliant Sound Quality
Having loved my Sonos system I was naturally a bit dubious as to whether the Mu-so would be worth the extra expense - I needn't have worried, from the first track it blew my Sonos Playbar away! Still like the Sonos but this is very close to hi-fi quality. Looks the part too, with a beautiful curved grille and aluminium casework which shouts quality.
Very Good TV Sound, And Extra Sonos Zone For Free
My Panasonic TV sound was very poor in quality, so I jumped at the chance when I heard about the new Playbar. I already had 3 zones of Sonos for music, and new I have another via the Playbar. Set up was child's play, and the extra bass depth and voice intelligibility on TV sound makes this one of the best tech equipments I have purchased. Fast delivery from Hifi Gear too.
Excellent Sound Quality
As you’d expect from Arcam, the rBlink is a very well-built little unit, with a small, discrete design, comprising a solid aluminium case with a rubberised bottom panel. Having the outputs one end (a coaxial and stereo RCA) and the power, aerial & Bluetooth sync button the other makes it easy to slip into most systems without getting in the way, unless you are syncing multiple devices to it on a regular basis. Performance Set up really couldn’t be simpler and takes about 5 minutes to unbox, connect and get music playing. Having tried the rBlink on my home system, I found the sound performance to be great from a Bluetooth device running 128khz (which I have always found to be a little flat in the past). Just picking out a few random tracks, a little lack of detail and pace was the only thing I could criticise, but nothing to upset me understanding the source. Wiring into the Arcam A19, you can lose the separate power supply and run directly from the amp. Now using the aptX at 320kps was a different revelation; the sound running from a pair of KEF R300s was excellent. No jitter or lack of detail was noticeable; the depth of sound was remarkable for Bluetooth and as good as hard-wiring in any similar device. With rich low tones, detailed mid-range and clear high tones, the rBlink delivers sound remarkably, and even when using a 128kHz source - the bass is still solid with just a minor drop off of detail. Verdict If you use the rBlink to its full capabilities you will be nothing but blown away. The quality when used on a decent set up is exceptional, offering everything you’d want and more from a wireless option. When using a standard Bluetooth signal the sound still impresses and holds together well. So if you are looking for a Bluetooth adaptor for any system, you cannot go far wrong with this smart addition to the Arcam family.
