Pro-ject's original MaiA was a compact integrated amplifier with ultimate input flexiblity, that avoids compromising the sound quality. It is offering all digital and analogue input options you can dream of combined with an amplifier stage, that delivers outstanding tube-like sound (Flying Mole modules) and a high-class 24bit/192kHz D/A converter stage. Now it is time for Pro-ject to introduce MaiA into their S2 Chrome product line with modern looks, a new all-aluminum chrome case and improved board layout. The astonishing feature-set remains the same as before!
Despite its small size, 9 source devices can be connected simultaneously:
High-quality phono MM + high output MC preamp
3 analogue line level inputs (2x RCA, 1x 3,5mm jack)
XMOS asynchronous USB 24bit/192kHz input for computer audio
Digital coax input (up to 24bit/192kHz)
2 Toslink inputs (up to 24bit/96kHz)
Wireless Bluetooth streaming (aptX capable) input with dedicated antenna
The improved caseand board layoutresult in better shielding of electromagnic interference further improving the already excellent audio performance: No matter which input you choose, a real musical sound with lifelike characteristics is guaranteed.
