Arcam CDS50 CD/SACD Network Player Arcam's App

Arcam's App

As well as streaming from local storage, Arcam's MusicLife app, which is available for both Android and iOS platforms, also allows the player to access online music services. As with the CDS50's file format range, the online service selection here isn't as comprehensive as that provided by some dedicated network players, but Arcam has most of the basics covered via its platform. So, as well as Internet radio, it's possible to play Deezer, Napster and Tidal, plus the streaming services of Highresaudio and Qobuz.


True, the MusicLife app isn't the slickest of its kind, and can involve a bit more tapping than some of its rivals, but it's more than up to the job of finding and playing the music on available storage devices, and providing basic streaming capability with other brands' UPnP client devices should you have them. As well as supplying network and online service access with the CDS50 (and various other Arcam network products) it also announces its compatibility with the Mark Levinson No5101 SACD/network player – there's that Harman connection again!
