Wiim Amp - An affordable, high-performance streaming amplifier

Wrapped in a sleek aluminium case, the ultra-compact WiiM Amp packs a huge amount into its sleek and compact design. A punchy, 60 watts per channel amplifier is powerful enough to deliver room-filling sound, even for larger spaces.

Versatile connectivity

With Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB and HDMI connectivity you can connect a vast range of different components, including your TV. All you need to create a top notch, Hi-Res streaming music system is the WiiM Amp and a suitable pair of passive speakers.

Using a sophisticated TI 3255 amplifier circuit, the WiiM Amp delivers an impressive 60 watts per channel to your chosen speakers. With plenty of power the Wiim Amp can even handle more demanding 4-ohm speakers. And its high-performance ESS Sabre DAC extracts even the smallest musical details to create a natural, open sound that rivals others streaming amplifiers costing several times more.

User-friendly streaming options

The Wiim Amp connects to your home network using Wi-Fi or Ethernet, and it's simple to set up using the free WiiM Home app for Apple® and Android™. You can access a wide range of music services from within the app including Spotify, Amazon Music, Tidal, Napster, Deezer, Qobuz and more. Internet radio and podcasts are also supported. Alternatively, connect the Wiim Amp to your local NAS Drive (network attached drive) and wireless stream your own, stored music files. By adding additional WiiM components you can easily create a powerful, versatile multi-room music system. There’s even a sync audio option in the WiiM app that uses a built-in mic on the Amp to get rid of any playback latency between different grouped Wiim devices.

Chromecast audio and AirPlay 2

Whether you use Android or Apple iOS devices, the WiiM Amp is your friend. Chromecast Audio is the Android music streamer that accesses the Google Play store for a vast range of audio app solutions. Support for AirPlay 2 lets you stream audio directly from your Apple device, making the Wiim Amp equally suited to both systems. Spotify and Tidal Connect

If use Spotify and/or Tidal apps, the WiiM Amp is compatible with their ‘Connect’ feature (premium account required). This lets you use the Spotify or Tidal apps to take direct control of the Amp, giving you a seamless experience as you switch between devices.

Two-way Bluetooth

Two-way Bluetooth lets you or friends stream wirelessly from a smartphone, tablet, laptop or other Bluetooth enabled device to play music through the Wiim Amp. You can also stream from the Amp to your favourite Bluetooth headphones or speaker.

Flexible audio connections

You can connect an analogue source like a turntable with a phono preamp to the Amp's line-level stereo RCA input. An optical input lets you connect a digital audio source like CD player or games console. Once connected you can stream those sources to other compatible multi-room speakers or WiiM components in your system.

Use the USB input to play high-res music files stored on an external storage drive whilst the HDMI ARC port enables s a simple connection to your TV, giving your TV sound a serious upgrade. It also has a subwoofer output so bass lovers can add a powered subwoofer.

Included remote and voice control

The WiiM Amp comes with a remote that lets you control playback and more. You can even add the remote to your Alexa account and use its built-in mic to make voice commands. Or control it via your favourite Google Assistant or Alexa device or Siri on your iPhone®.

The Wiim Amp is a fairly remarkable bit of kit, containing as it does a specification that is impressively comprehensive at the price. It sounds good, it looks good and it's a pleasure to use. For many reading this it will be all the audio product they ever need.
I’ve not seen value for money fly this high in entry-level hi-fi since the Logitech Squeezebox Touch hit the streets in 2010. And that makes the WiiM AMP not only a DAR-KO award winner but a very strong contender for product of the year.
