WiiM – What’s The Story?

WiiM is a relative new kid on the block in home audio and is taking it by storm. offering a small but comprehensive range of quality, extremely affordable streaming solutions.

 

WiiM is part of LinkPlay Technology Inc., a collaborative team from the likes of Google and Harmon, developing bespoke audio streaming software and hardware for OEM partners, with bases in the US, China and South Korea.

The Line Up

WiiM’s debut product, Mini – a tiny, wireless streamer à la early Amazon Echo Dot or Google Mini - launched in late 2021, followed by Pro and Pro Plus streamers, WiiM Amp and Wake-Up Light which will hit shops soon.

 

Pro and Pro Plus are larger and more powerful high-resolution streamers that tick all the feature boxes - Spotify Connect, TIDAL Connect, Qobuz, Deezer, Amazon Music, Napster, TuneIn, Soundcloud, AirPlay 2, Chromecast, DLNA, Alexa Cast, Roon Ready, 2-way Bluetooth, voice control and more. Both players stream up to 192 kHz/24-bit with digital and analogue inputs and outputs.

 

Pro Plus has a better DAC (AKM vs TI in the Pro) so sounds better and comes with a remote control for added convenience. For £60 more.

 

How would you use Pro and Pro Plus?

Simply connect to an existing amplifier or powered speakers, opening up the world of music streaming to anyone with even a basic hi-fi system, at a very accessible price.


For just another £100 though, you get the formidable WiiM Amp

WiiM Amp

This makes digital music accessible to all - a neat and stylish aluminium box that streams and amplifies; just add speakers and 100M+ tracks from across the globe are at your fingertips. 

 

The WiiM Amp has all the features, impressive streaming capabilities and connectivity of Pro and Pro Plus, with a powerful Class D amp built in – 60W into 8 ohms, 120W into 4. It’s the perfect way to easily integrate digital streaming at home.

It can transform your passive speakers into an audiophile grade streaming system – floor standing, outdoor, bookshelf, maybe even that very first pair that have been languishing in the loft for a decade or more????

 

WiiM Amp costs just £319 right now. For what it offers, we think that is sensational!
