WiiM has announced the launch of the WiiM Amp, its first streaming amplifier. The WiiM Amp delivers hi-res and lossless quality while enabling multi room functionality and connection to the latest audio technologies.
Users can connect WiiM Amp to their passive speakers, home theatre set-up or vintage record player (just add a phono stage) and stream their music collection directly from a preferred music app or by voice commands.
“We’ve dedicated ourselves to designing products that elevate the music streaming experience, and the WiiM Amp is the first step in our expanded line-up,” says Dr Lifeng Zhao, CEO of WiiM.
“With valuable user feedback and our team’s commitment to superior audio quality, the WiiM Amp delivers audiophile-grade sound and a seamless experience for music enthusiasts to unlock a world of musical possibilities.”
The WiiM Amp caters to those seeking to optimise decades-old, high-quality audio systems and those looking to use their classic passive speakers with their favourite platforms effortlessly.
By seamlessly connecting audio gear to the WiiM Amp, users can control streaming from the comfort of the WiiM Home App. The WiiM Voice Remote controller provides another stress-free form of wireless control for the WiiM Amp.
WiiM Amp lets users stream their favourite music, TV audio, radio, podcasts and more from iOS, MacBook and Apple TV. It supports Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, Alexa Music Cast, Deezer, Qobuz, Pandora, DLNA, Spotify Connect, and TIDAL HiFi and HiFi+, which lets users cast YouTube Music, TV audio, radio stations, podcasts and local content directly from Chromecast-enabled Apps.
Since it works with Siri, Alexa, and Google, users can choose preferred voice assistants to control music selection, volume and playback.
The WiiM Amp pops up automatically in the WiiM Home app. Thanks to the simple in-app guide and compact size, device set-up can take less than two minutes.
With the frequent software updates, Roon Ready certification expected soon, and automatic OTA, it only gets even better with time.
The WiiM Amp launches in the UK this month, priced at £299.00. ($299.00 / €349.00.) Other WiiM products like the WiiM Pro and WiiM Pro Plus multiroom-capable streamers can pair with the WiiM Amp to deliver a seamless smart-home experience.
