The Arche DAC Amplifier from Focal, is an all-in-one solution for headphones which combines a digital-analog converter as well as two pure class A amplification modes. Ideal to sit between the digital sources and your audiophile headphones, Arche is the perfect solution to fully enjoy your headphones, whilst benefiting from the performance delivered by the converter to drive high-fidelity loudspeakers. 

Its dual mono ultra-high performance construction makes it possible to separate management of the left and right channels, from the powering stage. The two balanced digital-analog converters can process formats in PCM format, 384kHz, as well as DSD 256. The analog signal is then routed towards 2 pure class A amplification channels for an uncompromising solution. The original audio signal is thereby totally respected, so as to reproduce the tiniest details of the recording.

Arche offers presets for every set of Focal High-Fidelity headphones to make sure you get the absolute best from this ultimate combination. Owners of Focal headphones can therefore be sure they are enjoying a combination of electronics and acoustics that is carefully thought out and specially developed from the very outset. 

This sleek and stylish amplifier comes with a solid aluminium headphone mount inspired by the brand’s logo, making accessing and storing the headphones quick and easy, as well as looking incredible and saving on space.

  • Digital-analog converter compatible with high-resolution formats (384kHz - DSD 256)
