WiiM Amp is a compact, versatile and high-performance amplifier and streamer! It makes it very easy to stream music via DLNA, AirPlay 2, Bluetooth (bidirectional) or Chromecast. This way, you can easily access your music library, no matter where it is stored – on a computer, NAS or smartphone. Additionally, device and playback control is simplified using the WiiM Home mobile app. The app also gives you access to your favorite streaming platforms such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and Qobuz.

For remote listening to music, the WiiM Amp has a built-in streamer. Connection can be made via WiFi or Ethernet RJ45. Supported transmission protocols are DLNA, AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect and Chromecast. This way, you can easily access all the music stored on your network, be it a computer, NAS or smartphone. This connection also allows you to use your favorite music streaming apps.

Once connected, WiiM Amp gives you access to numerous music streaming apps such as Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Qobuz, Amazon Music, Apple Music and Napster. You can also listen to web radio stations such as iHeartRadio and TuneIn.

The Class D amplifier stage in WiiM Amp allows you to develop power of 2×100 W at 4Ω or 2×60 W at 8Ω, and all this with high efficiency. This makes it ideal for powering book speakers or small speakers. In addition, thanks to a carefully thought-out and optimized design, the amplifier provides accurate and dynamic sound reproduction. Moreover, thanks to numerous preset equalization profiles and a 10-band parametric equalizer, you can tailor the sound of the device.

In addition to wireless connectivity, WiiM Amp has a wide range of connectors, allowing it to be integrated with the vast majority of audio systems. Inputs include stereo RCA and optical Toslink, as well as HDMI ARC for connecting a TV and USB-A for playing music from a storage device (USB stick or hard drive). Output is via speaker terminals with banana plugs. The signal can also be sent to a subwoofer via the subwoofer output. Additionally, the RCA input can be switched to pre-out mode, allowing the WiiM Amp to be used with an external power amplifier.

Multiple devices can be connected in multiroom mode using any compatible LinkPlay device, as well as AVS Multiroom and AirPlay 2 technologies. The
