The perfect partner for your A5, A15 or A25 amplifier
The Arcam ST5 is a slimline, feature-packed network streamer that makes the perfect match for Arcam’s Radia amplifiers. Although the ST5 works within almost any system, link it to an A5, A15 or A25 and you not only get matching aesthetics, but also a link control that lets the two components act as one. Unlike amplifiers with built-in network streaming, the two-box Arcam solution uses separate power supplies and individually shielded cases for improved sound quality and reduced distortion.
Signature Arcam sound
Who better to buy your next streamer from than a company with decades of experience working within the digital domain? As one of the first UK manufacturers to introduce a CD player and the very first to produce a separate DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), Arcam have unparalleled expertise in the field. Utilising a premium quality ESS DAC, with time domain jitter elimination, the ST5 easily lives up Arcam’s high standards. Expect rich and full-bodied sound that’s packed with detail.
App control for Internet radio and your choice of streaming service
Use app control to access a wide variety of popular music streaming services, including Amazon Music and Qobuz. The app also lets you access Internet radio stations and podcasts from around the world, opening up near unlimited entertainment.
Apple AirPlay 2 and Google Chromecast
With support for Apple AirPlay 2 and Google Chromecast, the ST5 works equally as well with Apple and Android devices. Connect to your home system via wi-fi or Ethernet and effortlessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet and laptop.
Play directly from Spotify Connect and Tidal Connect
As well as connecting via AirPlay 2 and Chromecast, the ST5 also connects directly to Spotify Connect and Tidal Connect (premium accounts required). This lets you use their dedicated apps and enjoy the full experience from these music streaming market leaders.
Roon Ready and MQA support
Compatible with Hi-Res music files, the ST5 is ideal for playing back premium quality audio. MQA support means that you’ll get optimal quality sound from Tidal’s HiFi Plus service plan. Roon Ready ensures that the ST5 can be incorporated into a Hi-Res, multiroom music system via Roon’s award-winning platform.
Connects to all types of systems
A trio of outputs make the ST5 easy to connect to a wide range of different systems. Use the digital optical or coaxial for connection to an AV receiver or high quality digital amplifier. For amplifiers with no digital input, connect via the analogue RCA outputs.
Sleek new style
As part of Arcam’s Radia series, the ST5 looks far more sophisticated than most typical network music streamers. The all-aluminium casing with rounded edges exudes a high quality look and feel. At just 5.8cm tall, the slimline design also fits neatly where bulkier devices won’t.
