iWa250

2x50W RMS hi-fi in-wall & multiroom stereo amplifier with Wifi, Toslink, Aux and Spotify Connect inputs

Introduction

The MTX iWa250 amplifier is equipped with a high performance uncompressed WiFi input compatible with Airplay DLNA UPnP, a Toslink optical fiber input, and an analog line input on RCA plugs. The 3 sources switch automatically. The last one to log on is listening. It is still possible to force an entry with the remote control.

The iWa250 is also "Spotify Connect" compatible: the amp connects directly to Spotify servers and your smartphone or tablet becomes simple remote controls. You never lose signal, you don't drain your battery.

Its all-aluminum construction and small size allow it to hide in a wall, a ceiling or in a piece of furniture without the risk of overheating. All it needs is 110-220V power to play music anywhere.

We use the direct digital amplification technology. There is no DAC (digital to analog converter). There is no loss, no noise. The sound is clear, musical and particularly dynamic.

The IR remote control allows you to control the amplifier even in a ceiling or a wall thanks to the IR receiver.

Dual-band WiFi is very robust. The iWa250 is particularly sensitive in Wifi, thanks to its 2 external antennas.
It is possible to stream music simultaneously to several iWa250s (multiroom) and to control them from an application on a smartphone, tablet or computer.

This little box is magic! DLNA and Airplay, you can send everything there with top quality. The automatic switching to optics and RCA works great.
A great alternative to a high-end soundbar, but with the option of choosing these speakers!
Last point, but super important: the amplification quality is extraordinary, it works like a hi-fi amplifier at € 500, or even more, with a really large reserve of energy.
