The TIDAL Arkas is designed to be the perfect digital music content controller for TIDAL’s high-end systems. The Arkas approach was simple: build the perfect musical data file transport with TIDAL performance and reliability. In general, the TIDAL Arkas concept can be compared to the build of a super sports car: as little weight as possible, by removing all but what is necessary, combined with the most power possible – to get the best performance and keep up with the pace.
Arkas is built as a no-file-storage system internally and only the core relevant technology around an extremely potent power supply, and it is combined with a unique file transport output. All digital half-life components like music data storage, NAS/music server systems, and hard drives, are intended to be outside the TIDAL Arkas.
This way the TIDAL Arkas remains the center of content management as an elite streamer for many years, since some things will not change as quickly as digital technology: our timeless TIDAL electronics cabinet and the power supply inside the Arkas are future-ready. The peripheral components to run the PCB boards and the streaming PCB itself are designed to be upgraded and adjusted – protecting your investment and guaranteeing the very best sound for your TIDAL systems. Whatever the future brings, the Arkas is prepared.
Every Arkas comes with a proprietary data connection output called TIDAL-Link. This unique cable connection overcomes the disadvantages of SPDIF RCA, AES, or USB in sound quality and the lack of possibility of playing certain files with certain connections. The TIDAL link cable comes with every Arkas, ready to be plugged into the TIDAL Camira to unleash its real performance and create the perfect TIDAL combination.
