ARC (Aural Resonance Cascade) is a project 2 years in the making. Over the years of selling our famous Objective2 and ODAC line of products we've received incredible feedback and suggestions in how to improve our products. We took all of it and designed a completely new platform from the ground up, only carrying over the enclosure from the Objective2 line. Our main focus was with the ARC was to bring in modern design and components, doing it better than the competition. We've somehow packed a powerful headphone amplifier, ultra-clean DAC, Microphone ADC and RCA jacks into an extremely small box, all while being made in the USA.

Refurb ARC

Works as advertised no issues. Looks brand new even though it's a refurb. Gives my ATH-ADG1 the extra power for great sound when gaming and listening to Tidal Music. I would buy again.
