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.
AudioScienceReview categorises Mini-I-3 as another textbook case of great Matrix audio engineering. 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". Alpha Audio NET likewise cast a critical eye and handed Mini-I 3 all 5 ⭐.
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.
Mini-I-3's 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.
