Matrix Audio Mini-I 3
New: All Mini-I-3 series streaming DACs from Matrix Audio now come with a 60-day free Roon trial
The sleekest streaming DAC Matrix Audio have released to date shows up ready for display in your living room and bedroom listening. With a 3.3 inch LCD display screen unlocking a brand new user interface, Mini-I-3 comes dressed to impress in every modern home.
Do judge this book by its cover – Mini-I-3 comes loaded with an ESS Sabre ES9038Q2M backed up by traditional Matrix audio engineering know-how. Packaged with a Roon Ready Ethernet streamer from the box, this feature-loaded balanced DAC also tosses in Apple AirPlay 2 and a 4.4mm headphone output for more use cases.
Soundnews give it a Gold award for "great digital design, must-have features, beautiful looks and small form factor at a price that wouldn’t land a critical hit on your wallet". Such extraneous flexibility of use has never been possible at this price segment before, ensuring new home audio audiophiles can find lasting pride of place for Mini-I-3 in each room.
Its Pro sibling with MQA decoding, Bluetooth 5.0, LDAC, Wi-Fi streaming and Crystek clock can be found here. Also check out all of Matrix Audio's streaming DAC releases here, or view our other desktop options here.
