    Great bang for your buck

    The media could not be loaded.

    I’ve been shopping for a streaming device to add to my vintage audio system. There are many expensive options that have many bellsand whistles, like amplification, display screen, remote control and so forth, but at a price. Saw this on Amazon. Too good to be believed. Why do the big audio name manufacturers have such higher prices for this technology. I guess because they can.Enter the WiiM mini, a small hockey puck size high resolution streamer with only the features you need. You run the app from your phone. And for only $89 why the hell not? So I took a chance given that most reviews were positive.Got it yesterday evening and setup took me about 15 minutes including loading the app on my iPhone. Amazingly the device weighs next to nothing but was packaged with everything you might need to get going. Ran a connection with supplied cable from one of the output jacks on the device to the RCA connects on the back of my preamplifier.Ok, let’s give it a try…. I’m streaming from Amazon music, so I had to sign the device into my Amazon account. Then the music started from a playlist I have. Holy cow, this sounds pretty darn good. At least comparable if not better than CD’s and LP’s I have. As I played more and more selections, I really started to have fun. The app itself is straightforward and easy to use. There are many options for music sources. I was impressed.So how does it sound. The WiiM is connected to my class A/B electronics, Bryston amp and preamp (known for their neutrality). My speakers, Wharfedale Denton 85’s. (A bit on the warm side, with wonderful midrange).Detailed, transparent, excellent midrange, and soundstage that I only experience with quality CD and LP’s. How can a device this inexpensive sound soooo good?I was ready to spend 5-10 times this amount of money to get this level of sound. Now I can put the extra cash I saved into something else.So, I can recommend the WiiM mini without reservations. Give it a try, you might just like it as much as I do.

    Perfect HiFi solution to bluetooth speakers

    I purchased 2 JBL PartyBox 710s for my basement because I really enjoy bass heavy music. However, sometimes I want to critically listen to music with a balanced frequency profile. I was surprised JBL did not include WiFi capabilities because these speakers can sound much better than what Bluetooth can support. I use the WiiM Mini to fill in that gap, and it works perfectly.Pros:WiiM App is fantastic – Easy to navigate – Great music streaming integration – EQ customization is very useful – Many additional audio settingsQuality hardwarePlenty of cables includedMost importantly, the audio sounds amazingCons:A little priceyWould have liked a power on/off buttonNOTE: WiiM Mini should be plugged directly into the power outlet. I tried plugging it into my speaker for power, but created a ground loop issue resulting in a lot of popping and static. Once I plugged directly into the socket it fixed the problem immediately.

    Not ready for prime time but they are constantly updating “now changing to 5 stars”

    Yes it does everything they tell you but not very well. I only use this with airplay 2 and is all I cover in this review. My choice was to buy a used airport express or try this option for my front porch speakers. Had an express for this but when we added on I needed it to expand my network into the addition. This was less expensive so……. This unit does a lot and they are constantly updating the firmware but it still has bugs. It constantly falls off my network which takes a reboot to get back but with each firmware update this seems to be getting better. The sound quality doesn’t come close to the express and I think even Bluetooth sounded better. The balance from left to right speaker seems to be off and can’t be changed within the Apple accessibility app. And I can’t use the Apple accessibility app to toggle between mono and stereo which is important when using with outside speakers. I will give them a little time to work out the issues before I use it as a hockey puck. I will update my review if fixes are applied.UPDATE OK 6 months many updates later It was still falling off my network I am still using an old Apple extreme router so this could be my fault. I did find a fix for this problem by making the WiiM static on my network. I do have to say the company tried many firmware updates which seemed to coincide with each ticket I put in. They do seem to be serious about keep their customers happy. They sent me a replacement unit for the balance/sound issue and the sound is now on par with other airplay devices that I have used. So the only issue I have left is not being able to switch from stereo to mono for my porch speakers either thru the Apple accessibility app or thru the WiiM app. I have upgraded my rating by one star for the company’s dedication to their product.Second updateThis is the first review I’ve upgraded to 5 stars. Again I only use this for airplay and can’t speak for all other forms of streaming it can do. They as of January solve my final issue of a mono channel switch for my outside speakers. This is now perfect. Thank you WiiM for your dedication to your product. I will looking at upgrading to pro in the near future.

    Buy this over the belkin version

    I was contemplating buying the Belkin equivalent of this device for airplay. I had seen that the reviews for it were not that great, it had constant disconnection issues. I read one review that recommended buying the WiiM instead. I was so glad I listened to that person. This device is worth every cent. It is incredibly easy to set up using the app, took me less than 7 minutes from opening the box to playing music on it. Although it did have to update too. This is a solid product if you are looking to add airplay to your stero. It also has alexa integration as well. Highly recommend buying this over any other airplay device.

    It a kind of a cheap computer for a good sound when it works right way

    There are some network streaming devices on sale.This is the lowest priced one I know. The other one I thought of was Jen Streamer from IFI of over $300..Sometimes slow and jamming but what can I expect for the one under $100 ?Making better sound than blutooth connection (I have a Jen Blu)Today I experienced a wired sound from it, Don Mclean’s voice sounded like a Bing Crosby. It sounded like it played music %10 to 20 slowerI checked my order but it is already 1month overI tried restart it but no way but unplugging and found it was working right.For over a month it was powered on. I don’t know it has a sleeping mode.I hope it will last over a year or longer…it is under $100 No other choiceBy the way each interface of the music providers is never as good as the originalI tried Tidal and QobuzOriginal Qubuz is better than TidalBut at the Wiim, Tidal is betterI understand it is not easy to make it as good as original onesI accept some inconvenience for better sound and cable free system..Even my Macbook is jamming once in a while.

    Simple, bit perfect audio streaming

    I was using a bluetooth receiver to stream audio from my MacBook Pro to my Onkyo receiver. But I could hear the quality difference compared to CDs. And bluetooth often had small, random, audible crackles and distortions. I did some research and decided to give the WiiM Mini a try.I’ll be up front and say that I have not tried all of the features. I do not use the EQ as I like my receiver and speakers the way they sound. I’m not using any of the music streaming services (yet). Nor am I using the audio-in port or the Bluetooth features. Lossless streaming requires WiF which is how I’m using it. And I’m using the optical S/PDIF out, so I have not tested the on-board DAC at all. All I wanted was bit perfect streaming of lossless CD rips to my receiver without the device imposing its own sound on the stream. And with the EQ off and the volume locked, the WiiM Mini delivers exactly that. It’s like having an optical S/PDIF cable stretched from my Mac to my receiver. It just works.Setup of the device and software was a breeze. It includes a power adapter and cables, including optical S/PDIF. My only complaint is that the USB cable for power is very short, maybe 4ft? I’m using an extension cord right now, but I have a longer USB cable on the way. Think about whether or not you will need a longer USB cable for power, and order one at the same time if you do.I highly recommend this device for lossless audio streaming. It improves upon the now-discontinued AirPort Express in a number of ways. For pure audio it’s also better than an Apple TV as you can completely control the device from your phone, where Apple TV sometimes requires a monitor to be attached. Streaming to Apple TV also spikes CPU usage on my Mac, running up the fans. I have no such problems streaming to the WiiM Mini.

    This little device made my old system alive again!

    Pros:Hardware:I use TosLink port to connect my old Pioneer AVR which only supports up to 24bits/48kHz, but it works perfectly for me; I also tried the Aux output, I cannot tell any difference so I assume the internal DAC works fine.Software:I use Android app, which works pretty good for me with Amazon Music, Spotify.Cons:Hardware: so far so good.Software: It doesn’t work well with my network files (I use Windows Media Sharing, it works sometimes, but it is pretty slow to get connected), there is some room to improve here. I remove one star for this feature.Conclusion:This is a good addon to any old stereo system. It might improve sound quality, but sound quality depends on many things, mainly the source, and the system setup. Hope this helps.

    Works great!

    Works so well I was inspired to leave a review. I was struggling for the last few years to keep my AirPort Express running smoothly and it finally just bricked. Glad that it did as I should have looked for an alternate years ago. Was so happy to throw that thing in the garbage. I am running this from the 1/4″ with RCAs out to a dedicated AudioSource solid state power amp that is hard wired to a bunch of ceiling speakers around the house. Basically just use it to stream Spotify throughout the house so not overly concerned with sound quality (I have a reference system with towers in main room). That said, it sounds great considering the source is compressed. Setup was a breeze, took all of 4-5 minutes. Never need the WiiM app, just launch Spotify on my phone and can control the volume with my phone vol buttons. Piece of cake. 100% recommend if you’re looking for an alternate to AirPort Express/AirPlay. Also shout out to the AudioSource Amp100 amp (It’s been powered on for 5 years straight 24/7/365 and never even gets warm). Both items a tremendous value.

    Slick Setup, Superb Sound!

    I used the WiiM Mini AirPlay2 Wireless Audio Streamer to make my analog stereo system available on Airplay and Airplay2. After my ancient Airport hub died, I needed something compatible with Mac OS that would deliver high-quality sound. Because the operating system of the WiiM Mini is Linux-based, it was instantly compatible. Once out of the box, I had it set up in about a minute. Seriously. It took about a minute to get it paired and hooked up, using only my iPhone. I didn’t need to use their app for anything (which is a real plus, in my opinion). Integration into Mac OS and iOS reminded me of the good old days of Apple, when peripherals “just worked.” Apple could learn something from this device, as it was even easier to hook up than the original Airport hubs were, and so far it has not had any bugs (unlike the Airports did).So let’s talk about that terrific sound: This streamer sounds beautiful! With dual-band wireless connections in 2.5G and 5G, the signal is strong, without any delay. Streaming music from PC or iPhone to separate locations across the house yielded simultaneous play across both systems. Even better than that, however, the Mini offers bit-perfect output, up to 192 kHz, 24-bit. Streamed music sounds every bit as good as a CD, which is a big improvement over my prior 2.5G Airport.Final note: This thing is tiny. It’s about the size of a business card, and it’s light as a feather. The lack of heft might make it seem cheap, but it tells me that the company added only the necessary electronics inside the tiny shell. Despite its size, the signal is huge and strong—at least that’s what my security system told me. I have no reason to doubt it. The other thing the system reported is that the WiiM Mini’s signal is not only robust, but extremely stable, so I don’t expect to be having any weird hiccups later on.While the price tag gave me a moment’s pause, I am happy with my purchase and the performance I’m getting out of this thing. I hope it will last as long as my old Airport did, which was long past its foreseeable useful and supported life. If that happens, then I will add this to my list of products that have been unbeatable as far as value is concerned.If you enjoy and appreciate Hi-Fi music, and are a user of modern Mac OS and iOS, I would not hesitate for a second to purchase one of these. It’s almost as if the WiiM Mini AirPlay2 Wireless Audio Streamer was purpose built to go with a Mac. Now, if only, they made one in white….

    Works well!

    My daughter and son in law have a sound sticks 2 for their tv but no way to stream music from their phones for the 4 y/o daughter. She is always asking for music. The Wiim mini hooked up easily .I assumed (wrongly) I could input the optical cable from the tv to the Wiim. It turns out the optical port on the mini is an output only. I used their existing inexpensive DAC output which was going to the sound sticks. I routed that to the aux input on the mini with a mini plug – rca cable I had. Then using the app audio source choose to stream music to the speakers or use the aux input to play the Tv sound. Much cheaper than a receiver and takes up no space. Have to be careful with sound volume when switching sources. Thanks Wiim!

    Great sound and a great app

    I love this, plan to get another Mini for the bedroom system. I was using an Echo Dot connected to my old Yamaha receiver via mini headphone jack to stereo RCA adapter cable. I loved the convenience of streaming Amazon Music Unlimited on a vintage stereo and be able to control with it with voice commands. But the builtin DAC on the Echo Dot is about what you’d expect from a $29 device, it works but the sound isn’t very hifi quality. I tried using the headphone jack on my iPhone 6s plus, and it sounded pretty good but it was inconvenient having my phone wired up to my stereo when I needed to use it for phone stuff. So after reading and watching a bunch of reviews I ordered a WiiM Mini streamer, the WiiM voice remote control, and a separate DAC (FX Audio X6 mkII open box for $59). I’m streaming from the WiiM Mini to the FX Audio DAC using an Amazon Basics optical cord. The sound is magnificent. I am now in the market for a new cartridge for my turntable because this puts my old one to shame. I even give it the edge over my CD player because of the equalizer included in the WiiM Home app. You can also use the remote’s preset buttons to preset things like albums or playlists (on Amazon in my case because that’s what I have an account for) or radio stations on Tune In (the WiiM Home app supports a number of different streaming services including Spotify). You can also use it (or your phone) for remote volume control. And I still have the ability to use voice commands by pressing the microphone button on the remote. After a few weeks I’m still just learning how to use this thing (sometimes the WiiM app and the Amazon Music app don’t play along. I have to use the Amazon app to make playlists, the WiiM app doesn’t have the ability to do that. But to access the playlists, unless I add them to a preset and there’s only 12 presets available, I have to scroll down to Amazon, then scroll down to My Music, then scroll down to Playlists, etc etc. Didn’t WiiM know about playlists when the made the app?). Other than that it’s all great, I heartily recommend.

    Bang for your buck

    In terms of value, this is tough to beat. If you want a basic music streamer that gets the job done, this is it. If you have an audiophile setup you might look elsewhere, but if you’re just trying to stream music better than using bluetooth, can’t go wrong with this.

    Excellent device, even better customer service

    TLDR: YesIs it worth $90? Oh yea.Does it sound better than a Chromecast Audio? Oh yea. (digital out)Does it sound as good as a Node2? Oh yea. (digital out)Is all the hype justified? It depends.I purchased this device based on all the hype saying it was the best thing since sliced bread. I installed it in a totally inappropriate system and got the results you’d expect. Despite what logic tells you, all bits are not created equal and there are companies who, for the most part, know how to do magic with bits and charge appropriately.In the real world, connected to a Schiit Modi3 DAC, NAD C326bee amp, and a pair of Elac UniFi F5’s, it is clearly better than the Chromecast Audio. Not even close. The app works well (do turn on the Beta MQA setting in the app… really important), Tidal Connect works perfectly, and it just does exactly what it’s supposed to. This is an appropriate system for the Wiim, or a Node, or anything similar. I’d say if your system is up to about $2,500 total, don’t even think twice about it. $3,500 and your entry into streaming? Yea… still a buy, with a good DAC.Now for the hype police. In my main system, using a Benchmark DAC and Dynaudio speakers which can only be described as resolving as all #*&!, the weaknesses appear. Compared to my iFi Zen Stream, using iFi’s standard or super-duper $70 power supply, it’s competitive. Wiim’s software is better and it just works. The iFi is buggy, requires “encouragement,” and I think sound quality is similar. Powering the iFi with a linear power supply, however, and the Wiim can’t compete. The Wiim doesn’t seem to benefit much from the linear power supply but the iFi most certainly does. Keep in mind that this is an insanely resolving system and the Wiim costs $90. The iFi/LPSU combination also has no right to sound as good as it does for the money but, out of the box, Wiim beats it for usability alone.So, if your system costs less than your car, the Wiim is a winner. If your car’s tracking device is an oil leak so you can afford $5,000 speaker cables, a $90 component may not be for you.

    Feature/protocol packed and continually improving, but a bit buggy. Shames that *other* AP2 adapter.

    This little puck isn’t perfect, but so far I can’t think of any reason not to give it 5 stars just for packing the kitchen sink into an under-$100 item. BUT not all of them work flawlessly, and with more features comes more complication. If it supported Chromecast I’d find a way to give it 6 stars (and not worry about my shamefully underloved GCA pucks dying some day – why, google, why?!) As it is, it supports impressive Hi-Res optical out, AP2, and even comes with a generous set of various cables.You can read all the features in the description, but I do want to point out the ability to turn an analog device into a multi-room audio source. I previously used a NAD phono stage with A->D usb out and two RPi to build a similar setup with disappointing results. For various reasons it took a lot of care and feeding to keep it working. Sure, the source is still going A->D->A which adds some delay and probably makes true vinylphiles clutch their isolation feet in horror, but sometimes I wanna hear my John Prine vinyl collection while I’m working in the garage, and this is totally serviceable. *Can only stream from Mini to other Mini’s, not over AP2 or similar.So yes, this is a little Swiss Army knife of a device, and it does a lot of things well. With that in mind, I’m just going to list a few places where it comes up a little short. Thankfully, the manufacturer seems to be pretty on the ball for firmware releases with new features and performance improvement.The wifi antenna/chip must not be the highest quality. Every survey device I have shows a stronger RSSI than the WiiM in several locations.The app’s UX takes a little bit to get used to. Even after using for several days I stumble a little bit when I want to change what one of the Minis is playing or build/tear down a group stream. (IMHO, just putting “Device” to the far left and renaming “Browse” to “Source” would make a difference. Why does Device split Browse and Search??)Synchronizing multiple Minis often takes a good amount of time. Other times it’s pretty quick (same source/app, so that’s not the issue)Pandora support (headless streaming like Spotify Connect) is on the roadmap but currently not available.But seriously, get one and use it as is or slap a $200 DAC on it and be amazed at what cheap-ish gear can do now.

    Solved my streaming audio problems

    I have long had the goal of having my whole house set up for streaming music. Years ago I picked up a couple Chromecast Audio devices and was happy for a while. I had one in the garage, paired with a set of powered computer speakers that worked great. I also paired another one on my patio with a mini amp and set of passive outdoor speakers. As time went by I added a few Google home minis, then later some Nest home minis and even a Nest Max. I thought I had reached my goal, as I could group different rooms, stream music wherever I wanted. Then I began to notice that occasionally when playing Spotify, the music would stop and then resume in roughly 5-10 seconds. I chalked it up to my WiFi. So I upgraded to an Asus mesh WiFi setup, and immediately noticed that my network improved for gaming, work, and TV streaming. Oddly, it got worse for streaming audio through any of my Google audio streaming devices. The stops began lasting 30 seconds to several minutes, and sometimes wouldn’t resume without reconnecting to the audio device or group. I thought maybe it was Spotify, but Tidal, Prime Music, and IHeart all had the same problem. Very annoying…I decided to pick up a couple Sonos speakers, and was very happy with their better sound quality and rock-solid streaming connections. But I was not as happy with the price. Then I found Wiim, picked up a couple of the Minis, and realized that they worked great. No drops or disconnects, and easy control through the app. I replaced the Chromecast audios with the Wiim Minis, and immediately was back to enjoying music in the garage and outdoors. I am now planning to sell my Sonos speakers and replace them with Wiim Minis and powered bookshelf speakers. Saves me some money and will allow me to control everything from a single app. Solved my streaming audio problems with Wiim!

    Works better than expected!

    I recently bought a Denon CEOL all in one receiver with HEOS built in. So I needed to decide which streaming service (WIIM vs HEOS) I was going to use. Denon had had problematic software control, which was significantly upgraded in January 2024. It seems to work fairly well, now. WIIM seems to receive almost (not quite, but close) universal praise for its control software.Why I went with WIIM:* Greater chance of fewer problems with software.* More flexible in that I could use inexpensive speakers, and my existing legacy gear with it.* As one who uses hearing aids, I am unlikely to get to the point where HEOS’s promised higher fidelity (and higher subsequent costs) will make a significant difference to me.* WIIM supports one of my favorite 2nd tier streaming services, Calm Radio), and HEOS does not.WHAT I LIKE ABOUT the WIIM mini:* VERY tiny! it sits on top of my elderly Technics SA GX190 with the vent holes on top in the area with no vent holes with room to spare in the spot with NO vent holes.* It came with all the cables I needed to connect my device to my Technics, and even included stuff I couldn’t use.* It connected to the aux in RCA ports of my Technics reliever quite well. And the legacy Technics can control bass, treble, & volume quite readily.* Setup was EASY an straight forward. I believe literally ANYONE can do it.* Sound is VERY good, With or without my Hearing aids. My wife who doesn’t uses HAs also thinks the streaming sound is very good. Maybe not as good as the new Denon HEOS streaming, but that could be the quality of speakers on the Denon as opposed to the Technics.* The WIIM software is easy to use after set up. I like using my Android device as a remote control for the mini.WHAT I DON’T Like about the WIIM Mini:* Only one thing really. The cord that connected the miniplug out of the mini to the RCA connectors, was all black (both RCA pins), so I couldn’t tell which cord was ‘left’ and which was “Right’. I must have guessed correctly because it worked OK. I upgraded to a third party cable.IN CONCLUSION:I am pleased with my purchase. It seems well made, and the performance is better than I expected. The sound is quite good, particularly for a casual listener, even those who aren’t hearing impaired. Could you do better? Yes, but I doubt you could do better for less than $100 US. Connectivity is good, Set up is easy, and the software is easy to use. I will likely expand my whole house audio system with WIIM products, even one for my Denon CEOL receiver.

    Pretty impressive functionality, sound quality, and value.

    I really liked the idea of the Chromecast Audio but was always frustrated with its lack of support for Hi-Res Amazon Music playback and what I felt was relatively poor sound quality via the Toslink output. Looking to replace it, I struggled to find something suitable. I wanted a device with digital audio output(s) for use with my external DAC, Amazon Music HD/UHD compatibility at full resolution, and the ability to play local files stored on my NAS. Amazon’s Echo Link came close but lacked high-res audio support over its Toslink output making it a no-go. The Bluesound node had everything I wanted but came with a price tag that made me pause to scour for any other possible alternatives. I then remembered a device that I had seen advertised by a value oriented Hi-Fi Youtuber: The Wiim Mini.After taking a look at the Wiim, I found out that it checked most of my boxes and though it definitely worth a listen given the affordable cost. I also noticed that it ran on 5V DC power, thus allowing me to power it with an extra iFi iPower 2 power supply I had laying around. I also had a spare Pangea Premier SE Toslink cable to connect it to my DAC (a Denafrips Ares II). I was immediately struck by the audio quality of the combination on my system.I find the Wiim Home app reasonably easy to use, the settings fairly intuitive, and the pace of updates makes quite clear that Wiim is listening to and addressing its customers’ issues. I’ve encountered a couple of bugs with pausing tracks, but those have largely been addressed. I really like that after the app updates, I’m greeted with a brief description of changes / fixes applied. That along with the pace of updates inspires a pretty high degree of confidence in Wiim’s support. I also love the ability to manually connect to an online stream and save it as a preset. I use this feature to listen to the BBC World Service’s higher bitrate AAC stream. Playback of high-res files from my NAS is also a snap.All in all, I really love the Wiim Mini’s awesome functionality, great sound quality, via Toslink, and the idea that even with the upgraded power supply and Toslink cable, it still came in under half the price of the Bluesound Node. I rarely take the time to write a review, but this thing is absolutely worth it to do so along with its great price. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a great sounding & inexpensive streamer.Pros:* Sounds wonderful via the Toslink output and an external DAC* Full-size Toslink fully supports 24 bit / 192 kHz output.* Most affordable streamer to support Amazon Music HD/UHD.* Utilizes 5V DC power making it compatible with iFi iPower & linear power supplies for a great upgrade* Supports a wealth of playback & streaming service options* Looks to be adding support for casting Amazon HD/UHD audio from the Amazon Music app (yea!)Cons:* A few minor bugs in the Wiim Home app (pause/play mainly).* Have found myself looking for and not finding a simple stop playback (square) option.

    Clearly a big sound improvement over older bluetooth receiver, but not perfect.

    WiiM Mini provided a clear improvement over an older bluetooth link (from phone, to old streamer, to hi-fi stereo system). With my old system I loved the convenience of streaming music, but the bluetooth fidelity was obviously compromised and compressed verses CD quality sound. With the WiiM mini, while it’s not perfect there is a big improvement from the sound I had; the Wifi link carrying the music now goes directly to its base unit and the phone becomes just your remote to control it (as opposed to the receiver and bluetooth transmitter). Any sound coming out is only going to be as good as the weakest link (steaming service, streamer hardware, receiver, amp, speakers, etc.) but with a $10,000 stereo the bluetooth was clearly my weakest link. We all have unique ears, unique sound environments, unique stereos and varying expectations, but it’s certainly indisputable this is an improvement over older bluetooth. Many of the streaming services offer a free trial run, so you can test for yourself if you like one’s sound quality or app formatting better than another. I’m trying two that claim to have, “lossless CD quality” and going back and forth trying to decide which to keep. One has a lower cost and better formatting, the other seems to have slightly better sound (or is is just in my head due to their very persuasive advertising claims?). Set up was not too difficult. From opening box, to hooking up, to subscribing to a music service, to 90% understanding the navigation of the whole thing took me less than an hour. While I value high fidelity, I guess not enough to hassle with CD’s and LPs any more when the streaming is so convenient. In the end I perceive the music as clean, clear, good separation, but a little too bright. Bottom line, I meaningfully improved sound quality without a big investment so it seems worth it, but its not perfect. If you have a budget system or reasonable expectations recommend you buy it, but if you are a true audiophile I’m not sure if it’s for you and I’m left wondering if spending even more would be even better results.

    Probably best, cheapest Amazon Music HD/HUD solution.

    If you use SPDIF instead of internal Dac, this little device would let you forget about the expensive BlueSound Node, the troublesome and unstable raspberry pi runs on any OS. This is simply the easiest and best solution by far. The downside would be that it uses it’s own app to log into all the music services. You won’t be able to browse through the native APP UI from spotify, tidal, qobuz or even amazon music.I haven’t tried gapless so I can’t put down “it just works” stamp yet! However, hi-res does work as expected. There are some glitches and bugs from Amazon Music though. When comparing to Qobuz, it simply just works as bit perfect. On the Amazon Music HD/UHD I believed it’s probably Amazon’s fault here. There will be constrain on bitrate and sampling rate if you output from TV because it’s running mostly Android OS (ye! I am looking at you Amazon FireTV 4k Stick). You will only get 48k. However, on the Wiim mini is another story. It’s better to show 24bit, but sometimes it’s not bit perfect. it doesn’t always shows properly up to 192k.Due to the inconsistency of Amazon music. Depends on your Dac, your streamer box (a computer, an iphone, tv, or wiim mini) they all behave differently. I can’t grasp which one is the “best” solution or claim to be bit perfect here. But Amazon music seems to output hi-res music for sure. Amazon still need to work on their device compatibility issues though.For qobuz, it works like a breeze. Always accurate, and always works! I’ve had raspberry pi ran through LMS, volumio, audirvana, and roon before. If you want me to choose what’s the best solution for sound quality and simplicity, I would choose wiim mini.Although you don’t have a roon or audirvana as centralized server. You can’t “stream” music to every devices from a home server. You will lose “screen display” feature on your computer or tv. However, you will not bump into audirvana can’t switch playback devices or roon constantly having server down issues you need to restart the server. Best of all, you don’t need to deal with LMS or volumio just another update that something “doesn’t work” again.For the sound quality, I compare to Qobuz, it is indeed a close match. To be easy to use and bit perfect, Qobuz is obviously the best choice. Amazon music comes in second with this wiim mini.Best of all was the Alexa integration. It’s now possible to tell Alexa to play music, and on wiim mini side, it starts to play bit perfect hi-res music. That’s simply the missing piece from the echo eco system that Amazon did not have on their own products unless you’ve gone for Echo Studio. Amazon really need to do some catch up.It will sound better than you use Amazon FireTV 4k Sticks plug into the AVR before TV. Due to “compatibility” issues, versions of FireTV OS, and FireTV hardware. Not all FireTV works right out of box. In addition, not all AVR works with FireTV stick either. So I am grateful that Wiim Mini simply skips that whole route all together.The weak link would be spotify connect (not very sure if spotify connect is ever going to support bit perfect when spotify finally release hi res audio). Tidal works okay but obviously your DAC needs to decode MQA because wiim mini can’t do that from internal DAC. Best experiences comes from Qobuz and Amazon Music HD/UHD. Bluetooth was alright. When you can stream through WIFI, why bother with Bluetooth?However, the streaming service is very limited. It won’t support even something like Pandora just yet! You really need to use Airplay2 to playback those type of music services.

    Great little device! It is not cheap, but in contrast to many others, it simply works! Stable, reliable, easy to setup with the respective app. And it supports about every possible streaming technology, is easily found by Spotify and others (including the old Squeezebox/Logitech Media Server)… even the analog out has a really great sound – meaning reasonably good DACs are used.Clear recommendation if you want revive an old stereo set

    Fantastic streamer!

    Love it so much I bought 2!… and then a WiiM Amp, too! The mini is easy to hook up, easy to navigate and provides you everything you need to get your stream flowing. WiiM app is icing on this little cupcake! Built in 10 band EQ, EQ sound presets all work great. The bit perfect gapless music output decodes up to 24-bit 192 kHz… can’t do better than that. I mostly use Amazon Music Premium, so the mini is pushing anything Amazon can provide. The Burr Brown DAC is fine… and better then most factory installed DACs in less expensive amps. I upgraded though by adding a SMSL SU-1 with the venerable AK4493s DAC chip… BIG improvement to a cleaner more precise 3D soundstage.One last mention… the parametric EQ is amazing. It takes some practice and patience but it will allow you to control frequency, bandwidth, gain and filter type. You can make some serious tweaks to the music listening experience.You just gotta hand it to WiiM for providing such awesome products for such affordable prices. This little streamer puck sells for $78 regularly. Right now… WiiM is simply blowing away the competition.Setup:Fosi BT20A ampWiiM Mini streamerSMSL SU-1 DACSony SSCS5 speakersElac 1010 Sub

    I’m surprised with this little device!

    Great streamer in a tiny package. Super easy Wi-Fi setup though my iPhone and was streaming to it via airplay in a couple minutes. Connected via included optical cable to my older Denon and the sound quality is very good. Not quite the quality of my blusound node, but at a fraction of the price it definitely holds its own. Great, reasonably priced solution for streaming to vintage stereo equipment. Bluetooth works well, but Wi-Fi streaming is definitely better. Decent app though I just stream from my phone to it via AirPlay.Only thing I wish I could lock the volume out to let my stereo control the volume completely. Minor issue, and again at this price I highly recommend it.

    WiiM Mini Streamer

    This little unit is a great value for the money. Easy to set up and it sounds very good. The WiiM mobile app works quite well and I can stream music with Apple Airplay. Unfortunately I mostly use SiriusXM and WiiM does not natively support it, so I have to connect my iPhone via Bluetooth through the SiriusXM app which really drains the phones battery rather quickly. This is the same with my WiiM Pro unit and I wish they would get this feature included. Other than that it is highly recommended.

    Awesome

    I bought a WiiM Pro Plus for use on my main HiFi (B&W etc.) a few months ago and absolutely love it. I just purchased a Mini to pair with my Edifier S1000 Mk2 speakers in my bedroom, and yet again I find myself smiling from ear to ear. Setup was ridiculously easy, and it just works. I’m using optical to drive the Edifiers, so the full resolution from Tidal goes straight to the Edifiers. The sound is just astounding for less than $500. Linking the two WiiM devices to play synchronized music throughout the house is easy. I just love these WiiM things!

    This little device adds so much versatility for so little money

    I have a Wiim Amp and was impressed with that system in my bedroom. I added the Wiim Mini to my office to stream mostly background music while I work. The mini is tied in with my Fosi Audio V3 amplifier and a S.M.S.L DAC and some ancient Bose 201 V2 speakers. The streamed music with the equalizer makes it sounds great and the integration with Apple Airplay 2 was so easy. Really for the money it is hard to beat. I will probably by another to add to my living room reciever.

    Awesome!

    I’ve been listening to Bluetooth for years, and it always sounded muffled, not real clear. Ok for a good set of earbuds, but not great through various speakers/receivers. This is almost life changing! Clarity and sound quality is amazing through a Fosi Audio BT20A Pro and a pair of Sony SSCS5’s in my garage. Setup is super easy, and the app is awesome, I have access to all of my music, and can control everything with my phone. I’m going to purchase more WIIM streamers for a whole house audio setup, can’t wait!

    The little streamer that could…

    I’m fairly new to the audiophile world but have been blown away at how good this little streamer is, especially for what you pay. The greatest value comes from leveraging the optical output as it can push a bit perfect signal to your DAC.The sound into my headphone DAC and amp has been great. Adding the streamer has been a hugely convenient vs plugging my phone into the back of the DAC.I’m contemplating pairing this streamer with a Denefrips DAC ($1k+), it’s that good.As a standalone DAC, using its analog output is less valuable but a worthwhile option given the price.

    Turn ANY aux output into AirPlay speakers

    This AirPlay thing is legit. I used it to get AirPlay support on my Edifier R1380DB Active Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers. Both aux and optical work. I can now switch my speakers between my laptop and AirPlay.Works great playing to the Edifiers through Spotify app directly and through iPhone from control center.

    Big things. Small packages

    Needed a fix for my KEF LSX wireless (gen 1) when the networking card failed. KEF customer service is terrible. Bought the mini and hooked it to the KEF with the INCLUDED optic cable. VOILA! Great sound and rock solid reliability. Optical bipasses the mini’s DAC so I can’t speak to that. But as I stated connection to AirPlay 2 is flawless. TOP NOTCH PRODUCT.

    The WiiM WiFi Streaming device-tough to use, daily

    I like this, and some people who are accustomed to using a WiFi streaming device may find it simple to setup, pair, and stream from. I found it moderately easy, as I had setup Sonos speakers, previously. It is troublesome to me, although the sound quality can be set to a rather high hit rate standard, in that it seems to have a mind of its own and likes to control the volume levels for me:-)

    Really great sound, occasional issue if you change Spotify/alexa music too quickly

    Very easy setup, easy to configure, and great quality sound. Only issue has been a few glitches with Spotify and Alexa when I was changing music sources a lot during testing it out. I thought is would also accept voice assistant commands but it doesn’t seem to. Had hoped to use it standalone without and echo in the same room.

    Truly Fantastic. A true Wow device.

    I had used an old Apple TV to connect to an older receiver. But it always required a monitor to change the settings. When I bought this I expected quality and ease of use based on the reviews. Well, not only did it deliver on that, it offered so much more. You can adjust the Bitrate to accommodate Apple’s Music Loseless quality. It has a quality EQ. All the connections you need to connect to legacy and newer sound devices. The App is outstanding. So easy to use. So much control. This is a top product and given the price, it is outstanding. Do buy the optional remote for the device. It makes it even easier to use in case you are seated further away. The web description highlighting the options are correct. I can’t imagine any other similar devices beat this one!

    Years ago I paid $500+ for a name brand AirPlay2 receiver. It’s fine for the basement man cave hi-fi system considering the overall cost of the other components, but I couldn’t see myself spending that much to pipe tunes into my office through a $100 Monoprice amp. Glad I didn’t pay attention to the bad reviews because not only was this thing incredibly easy to set up, but it also sounds just as good as the $500 unit. If I decide to put a more serious system out by the pool, I’ll definitely get another one of these.

    Wrong power plug

    Received with a UK power plug instead of a European mainland one. Had to use an old Samsung watch plug to make it work.Installation (and software) are working fine. Had to restart my phone for it to recognize the device in the network but that’s not a flaw of this device. Overall pretty basic but it does the job.

    So this is what streaming is all about!

    I’ve been streaming music for only a few months – most of my listening is via LP, CD, or files I ripped to my laptop. I do strictly 2-channel stuff. I decided I was just too lazy to walk across the room every time I wanted to change songs. I recently subscribed to Spotify and quite liked it.The WiiM seemed to be the best budget way for my to try out streaming. Hooking up the WiiM was uncomplicated. I connected it to my Emotive PT-100 preamp via an optical connection allowing me to use the preamp’s DAC. The sound was great and Spotify Connect made it possible to use that app to control the music. The sound was so good I thought I’d try higher res playback using Tidal. Now the sound was truly great, rivaling CD or FLAC sources. Within a couple days I discontinued my Spotify account in favor of Tidal. Tidal Connect does not work as seamlessly on the WiiM as does Spotify Connect; so I mostly use the WiiM app. I did give the WiiM’s internal DAC a try and found that it was very good sounding except for somewhat exaggerated bass. I like the preamp’s DAC better, but the WiiM’s DAC should keep most listeners happy. I’ll give it a longer audition in the near future. Another benefit is the tiny size of the WiiM allows me to tidy up the audio system landscape.The only downsides for me are 1) the glitchy Tidal Connect interface, 2) occasion freeze particularly when I switch devices, and 3) the WiiM does not work with Tidal MQA or, I believe, other higher bit formats. My ears are old and I probably wouldn’t recognize MQA if I heard it. As it is, the WiiM delivers rich, detailed sound with authoritative, tight bass. About a hundred dollars to allow convenient access to a vast library of sonically pure music is an absolute steal in the hi-fi / audiophile world. Now I’m not walking across the room to change songs. Yes, I’m a big, big fan of my little WiiM streamer.

    If you’re looking for a chromecast audio replacement, this is it, but only better

    I run Logitech Media Server on one of my computers and I had several of their squeezebox products, including a duo and boom. However, the duo died and Logitech no longer makes these wonderful devices. However, I was fortunate to find Google chromecast audio devices, which for only $30 or so, worked wonderfully with LMS using the chromecast bridge plugin.I ran with these a few years, but when I wanted to expand my home music network, I found Google had stopped making them. Google indicates that the functionality is already covered in their other products. While technically accurate, they have nothing that works as simply and with as high a sound quality as their chromecast audio product. For those who wish to use a separate DAC these have the capability to output via optical cable.So now out of luck finding a replacement for the chromecase, I tried the clunky idea I saw on the web, using a regular chromecast with an hdmi audio extractor. This only worked *some* of the time and it got very tiresome.That’s when this wonderful product comes it. The Wiim steps right in and worked with LMS with no issues. In addition it has said optical outputs for folks who want to get the best sound. However, the analog out works great. In addition, the Wiim app allows everything you need for multi-room sound. You can group and name each one based on location. I needed it to finish out my home music network. While it costs double the price of the chromecast audio, it is well worth it because of the ease of use, sound quality, and advantage it has over the chromecase audio. I had always had trouble with gapless audio playback. The Wiim does this with no issue.All in all it’s a perfect solution if you already have your music digitized on a network storage or you have a streaming service (amazon music, tidal, spotify, etc), this is the one for you.

    Revolutionized how I listen to my music in my office

    I used to use bluetooth from either my phone or PC, but it was never perfect and I didn’t like having to keep either tethered to the soundbar I have dedicated for music.I have this installed on my desk with a long optical cable to the soundbar high up on my shelf. I almost exclusively stream music from my personal collection on my personal PC (using MusicBee with the UPNP plugin). No more hassle re-pairing or un-pairing, it’s always connected and ready to go.The app is fine for picking what I want to listen to, but having dedicated transport buttons on the top of the device means I can easily pause for meetings or other interruptions without having to go into my phone.

    Better than other alternatives

    I had a Bose Soundlink Connect that added Spotify and airplay features to my home theater setup. However the Bose auto powers off if no input was detected and required an app to start it back up. This got annoying really fast. It also randomly refused to connect and the app had a very limited feature set.All these issues were resolved with the WiiM mini. This unit has an auto input detect so will turn on by itself when an input is detected. The app is highly configurable and is feature rich.The two reasons I’ve docked stars is as follows1. This unit does not have an SPDIF input which would be a highly desirable feature2. Currently there’s no support for playing music via a Samba share, however this feature is in the roadmap so I may update this review based on how soon that feature is delivered.

    Almost perfect

    This is a fantastic product for the price. There is a more expensive pro model that has more inputs and features but for about a hundred bucks I don’t know of anything as good.The good:Connects to just about anything. I haven’t had it long enough to test it more than with spotify/airplay which it worked great for. The only thing missing I know of that some folks want is a Roon connection. I don’t need that so it doesn’t really affect me. Bit perfect output on the optical line is fabulous (I’m guessing). It’s one of the reasons I bought this.The less good:Bit perfect output is only over optical. I saw the usb-c connector and thought that it might work over that link but as far as I can tell it doesn’t. The built in aux audio out is not good. I bought this to replace my current listening source which is my iphone hooked up to the ($10) Apple lightning adapter headphone dongle. The difference is very noticeable and not in a good way. I would not use this output on anything approaching a decent sound system but it would be ok for folks who don’t care that much about audio quality.The end result is that I now have to buy an external DAC with an optical input. I ended up ordering a Schiit Modi+ which was one sixty with shipping and tax. I expect it to be better than my apple dac (for 16x the cost I hope so!).I still give this 5 stars. It does so much for the price that it is still an amazing product even with my disappointment in the aux out quality. The setup process is nice and the phone app (ios) seems to work well. It took me a minute to get output going through spotify/airplay and I am pretty technical so that might be an issue for some folks.

    Simply a game-changer

    I was already an owner of the WiiM Pro when I realized the Mini would be a great gift for my parents, who keep plugging their phone or laptop into their receiver to stream music. Now they can access music and control volume without sacrificing a device or even getting up. I’ll skip all the specs that make this special (or even what arguably brings this down to 4 stars, depending how granular you want to get) as it seems to be the thoroughly covered, but for anyone shopping for a practical solution and not concerned about DAC’s and speakers etc, you cannot beat this thing.

    Excellent little streamer!

    This thing is great. Definitely worth the $90 I spent. I have it connected to my Yamaha N303 via optical and get hi res music files to play through Amazon Music. AirPlay and Spotify connect are also very useful. You can also add the device to a speaker group with echo devices. This was the easiest and cheapest way to get lossless and hi res music files to play on my system.

    Works with apple HomePods and airplay!

    I don’t usually leave reviews, but this thing kicks butt! I have HomePods in every room and really wanted to use my Hyperbooms in sync, and this product brought that dream to reality. Extremely easy set up. Works amazing and has no latency or delay while playing with HomePods. Only downside is there is a distortion when turned up 100%. However the sound is crystal clear up to about 95% 👍🏼

    Great sound

    I play the mini through early 90’s Threshold amp and preamp. The sound is great. I bought a dac smls to see if it would make the sound even better. It failed to do so. It seems the internal dac in the mini is much better. The cheap audio man was right about this item as well as the Sony sscs5 speaker both 5 star items but the dac I would give 2 stars. Unless I did something wrong setting it up. I’m listening to the mini as I write this and am amazed by the clarity. Highly recommended!

    Old stereo lives again

    Wonderful device. Connects to the Phono input on my twelve-year old Yamaha receiver which drives Klipsch speakers. It is so convenient to stream my music from iPad or iPhone without having to locate a specific CD and doing it that way.Connection was a bit odd in that it did not work when the RCA plugs were plugged into Tape or Line-in. It only works when plugged into Phono.You will have to keep adjusting the sound level of your receiver and iPhone device to figure out the best combination of each, otherwise there will be some distortion in your speakers. Mostly my sound on the receiver is turned up and the Music app on iPhone/ipad turned way down. That works best for me.This was an excellent purchase which I highly recommend.

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    The WiiM Mini connected to my legacy home stereo receiver systems via the optical cable and allowed me to stream music to both my Sonos speaker network and to my 2 legacy home stereo receiver systems. Nice to have every speaker in my home (both wired legacy and new wireless/Sonos) playing from my iPhone for a very reasonable price.

    BUT IT!

    This is a great HD WIFI streamer. You will want to switch over to Amazon music for HD & UHD streaming. Way better than using an amazon echo & Spotify. Use the optical output and set the bit rate to the highest setting. Spotify is ~300 kbs. HD (CD quality) is ~1,400 kbs and UHD is ~5,000 kbs. Check out the Great EQ feature!

    Best HIFI device I’ve bought!!

    This small unassuming product puts out FlAC hi res sound to my amp. It sounds beautiful with Tidal streaming. It comes with bbc radio and heart radio loaded and various streaming services. My Tidal plays seamlessly from Tidal or within the Wiim app. Within the app has a few limitations like it skips some songs on a playlist or loses its place if you back up. Those are tiny flaws compared to how much I love this. It works sooo much better than the chrome cast and is cheap compared to other hi res options. Just buy it already and you’ll love it .

    Music sounded good when the device worked

    The WiiM Streamer sounded pretty nice using the optical connection to my receiver, *when it worked.* (Using the WiiM DAC with an analog connection to the receiver sounded good for some albums, not as good for others.)However, at first the device was unable to login to Qobuz, despite a firmware update which supposedly fixed the problem. Tech support finally solved the proplem. Apparently the device doesn’t encrypt the Qobuz password and my firewall would block the connection. I was finally able to access Qobuz after listing it as an exception on my firewall. Despite the fact that the device doesn’t encrypt your password when sending it out to cyberspace, I probably to would have kept the device if not for the other problems I had.When I was finally able to access Qobuz, it would only play hi-res (24 bit/96kHz) music as CD quality 16 bit/44.1kHz) when connected to my receiver through the optical connection. I thought this problem was supposed to have been fixed. The ability to play hi-res music gaplessly is the whole reason I bought the device.Using the optical connection is important to the music quality because it bypasses the WiiM Mini’s DAC and uses the receiver’s DAC. The WiiM Mini’s DAC is only average. That said, even CD quality sounded very good when connected to the receiver with the optical connection.Another major problem I had was that the device would not see the majority of my own music stored on my local network. It would see some of the music, so it’s obviously not an issue of connecting to the local network. My sonos system sees all my local music. (The main problem with Sonos is that it won’t play hi-res music with a sampling rate highwr than 48kHz.) Tech support was not helpful with this problem. They asked a question, which I immediately answered, and then I didn’t hear back, even though I sent two additional follow-up emails.Also, the music on the WiiM Mini would repeatedly cut out. I don’t think it has to do with my wi-fi speed, because my Sonos always plays without a problem, even when playing hi-res music through Qobuz. Sometimes it would be minor, with only a single, brief interruption of the song, and sometimes it would happen repeatedly through the song. Either way, it’s a deal breaker.Finally, the app for controlling the WiiM Mini is very non-responsive. It takes a long time to actually play music after selecting it on the device and hitting “play.” Also, the app would frequently lose the connection with the device and either take a while searching for it or require you to go through the set up process again.So, after spending many hours trying to fix these problems, I’m sending it back. It’s too bad the device has all these problems because when the music played, it sounded good.UPDATEDThey sent me a new WIIM and worked diligently to resolve most of the problems. Updating to 4 stars.
