WiiM has unveiled a new audiophile version of its streamer at a slightly higher price than the standard version. For hi-fi lovers, the ability to instantly access any music in lossless quality or even high definition without leaving the couch is extremely attractive. For younger music fans, a good network streamer can be the centerpiece of an affordable, high-quality system.

At High End Munich, WiiM introduced two new devices that will strengthen its position as a manufacturer of affordable and high-quality streamers.

WiiM Amp Pro features a built-in 60W per channel amplifier. This device combines all the benefits of streaming with an additional amplifier, making system setup easy. Connect passive speakers and an optional subwoofer, and your system is ready.

Compatibility and Inputs
The WiiM Amp Pro supports Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, Alexa Cast, DLNA, Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect. You can manage your content and devices through the WiiM Home App, which supports Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer, Qobuz, TIDAL, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, SoundCloud and more. “Roon ready” certification is in progress and will be announced soon.
In addition to streaming, WiiM Amp Pro offers stereo RCA, optical S/PDIF, HDMI ARC, and USB-A inputs for connecting additional sources such as a turntable, TV, or CD player.
