Renderings of the Ultra. (Touch) Display and (probably) headphone jack.

I'm glad other folks are stoked by this WiiM Ultra but it's just not my thing.

I hope WiiM will release a pure digital transport. No DAC, no ADC etc. but with a USB output.

Curious about the phono input. While I get that someone may want to hook a turntable up to this I'd also imagine that person already has a phono pre or a turntable with a built in phono pre

WiiM wants to cover as many target groups as possible.

One of these is the Turntable->Traditional receiver->Stereo system group.

Those receivers almost always have a phono input, so giving the WiiM Ultra a Phono in as well was a smart choice IMO.

I wouldn’t assume that person even has a turntable yet, let alone a phono pre-amp. If you look at for example Reddit you’ll see a regular stream of advice requests from people putting together systems with a vinyl component from scratch. Given the current popularity, I think it’s a smart move on Wiim’s part — though would’ve been neat if there was a switch to select phono or line input (perhaps there is? I haven’t read up on it) for that set of RCAs.
