The new WiiM Amp is an all-in-one solution for your hi-fi needs. If you are a modern audiophile who listens primarily to streams, that is.
The vast majority of music lovers today listen to streams. Or, if need be, to a hires music collection built up on the NAS. For those users, the WiiM Amp can come in quite handy. Especially if you’re looking for something that doesn’t take up a lot of space. The WiiM Amp is a streamer amplifier in one. Connect the device to a (home) network on one end and to a set of speakers on the other. Then the listening fun can start. Well-known streaming services such as Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify connect and many others are supported. Streaming via DLNA from the NAS is also no problem. The Amp features a Class D power amplifier that can deliver up to 60 watts per channel into 8 ohms, or 120 watts into 4 ohms. In total, you can connect four speakers (in stereo mode still) if desired.
Approachable remote control
The DAC in the WiiM Amp is an ESS 32-bit HyperStream one, with the maximum sample rate being 192 kHz. A parametric equalizer and a 10-band graphic equalizer are provided for lovers of these. As for inputs, you have – in addition to of course wifi and Ethernet – at your disposal RCA analog, digital optical and HDMI ARC. Nice is the included Voice Remote Controller.
Remains the surprisingly pleasant price of the WiiM Amp: €349.
