Introducing the Mayflower Electronics ARC (Aural Resonance Cascade), a headphone amplifier and DAC that was 2 years in the making. Mayflower Electronics has long been known for their build of the Objective2 Amp and ODAC line and now they've built a product of their own with their expertise and the feedback from their customers. The only thing carried over from the Objective2 line is the enclosure, everything else about the ARC is different. Modernizing the ARC was the primary focus of Mayflower Electronics and through that process they managed to pack a powerful headphone amplifier, ultra-clean DAC, Microphone ADC, and RCA jacks into an extremely small box. They've also managed to do all that while manufacturing the ARC in the USA.
Fully Compatible Gaming Setup
While the ARC is an excellent DAC and Amp by itself, it is also full compatible with your PC, MAC and PS4 for your gaming needs (the ARC also has a optical toslink input for use with your Xbox). Instead of being forced to use the terrible microphone and sound quality that is customary with most gaming-specific headphones, the choice is yours to set up your gaming rig how you want it with both Headphone and Microphone jacks. The ARC also has the option to use its built-in bass boost DSP if you're looking for that extra oomph during an intense FPS session. And because the ARC is so small, you don't have to worry about clutter on your desk or TV stand meaning your setup will always be easy on the eyes.
