MaiA DS3 is a relatively small-sized integrated amplifier offering outstanding audio quality and great source-compatibility with incoming analog & digital signals. Featuring a high-class 24bit/192kHz D/A converter, digital signals can be sent to MaiA via USB, optical, coax & Bluetooth. There are also three line-level analog inputs plus an MM/MC phono input (all RCA). Despite its small size, up to 9 source devices can be connected simultaneously, making MaiA DS2 one of the most versatile products on the market. Effectively isolating the circuitry from the surrounding environment is a stylish 2-layer aluminum/steel enclosure. High-quality, sound-first componentry is implemented throughout, and MaiA kicks out a hearty 135WPC @ 4ohms (78WPC @ 8ohms).
