Hot on the heels of the surprisingly good and very cheap Wiim Pro (£150) Network streamer, we now have the Pro Plus with better performance due to an improved DAC. And at £229 we think it offers pretty remarkable value for money and feature set.
Performance is better than we expected and put a smile on our face. Ease of use and set up is pretty class-leading too. We listened to it compared with the standard beast and we felt the small increase in cost was audible and well worth it. We've used this with fixed output into an audio system and also with variable ouput into a small power amp. Either way it worked seamlessly and well.
As an introduction to Network streaming this is pretty convincing. We think it will also appeal to the vinyl enthusiast who wants to "try before he buys", especially with the cost of new vinyl having risen over the last year.
