Looks like a nice amplifier . Its probably class D and I wonder which chip there is inside .
Nice with hdmi input and the power supply inside the unit.

I am pretty excited about the WiiM amp.

It has HDMI Arc Input, extensive Streaming Capabilities, a remote and according to WiiM will be based on the TPA3255 chip (https://forum.wiimhome.com/threads/wiim-amp.1322/post-22215). If they manage to to combine this with an integrated power supply that delivers 48V output this could become the Swiss army knife for audiophile entry level setups.

And all this for 300USD (https://forum.wiimhome.com/threads/wiim-amp-color.1413/post-21963).

Sounds too good to be true.

That can be a real winner.

Anyone of my kids generation - I'll be recommending it as an all in one - as long as it has enough power. Say 80W into 8 ohm. A bit more into 4.

It'll also need to take an input from a TV without lipsync problems.

While no attraction for my own use, does look like a nice product and think this is well-aimed. I would rather call it an integrated amp than just amp, tho.

Any knowledge of whether this uses PFFB or not? If so, I think many will be very interested in this product.

Wow, at $300 they are really taking no prisoners in the streamer market if this thing really has 48v integrated. A WiiM mini and a Fosi V3 is still cheaper, but this goes a bit beyond that.

I wonder how much PEQ will be available on this thing? Room correction, streaming, amp, $300? Gonna be hard to beat as a simple "everything but the speaker" box.

It is now listed at Son-Video.com (I guess a touch too soon?)

French (EU) MSRP will be 349€ inc VAT.

It will also be demoed at the Paris Audio Video Show (that I will cover) this weekend.

I've been looking for a way to add a hdmi arc input into my current setup, but this looks like such a neat one box solution I might just get this and repurpose my Wiim Pro, su-1 and fosi V3.

Apparently they are working on room correction as well which will make it even more of a no-brainer pick.

No subwoofer out? :(
EDIT: Or is that the RCA by the toslink? Difficult to make out in the pictures.
Otherwise
looks very interesting - especially if they expand PEQ capability going forward. It has the potential to be a very nice budget all-in-one box for many people!

EDIT2: Seems there will be a sub out after all:

4 band PEQ can be sufficient for basic room correction below 200 Hz in many settings.

According to Audiophonics listing, the RCA input can be repurposed as a pre-out to use an external power amplifier :cool:

And further to earlier replies, the 4 filters in the PEQ can all be set to peaks now and I would expect they'll be expanded to more bands very soon - the audiophonics listings says 10 band PEQ for the Wiim amp, although this may be a mistake as they have a 10 band graphic EQ atm
