The Mini-i Pro 3/Mini-i 3 act as an endpoint in Roon streaming media system, they transparently discover and connect to Roon without any configuration, and bit-perfect audio is delivered from Roon to Mini-i Pro 3/Mini-i 3.

Balanced Headphone AMP
The Mini-i 3 and Mini-i Pro 3 feature a fully balanced headphone amplifier. This allows the left and right channel signals to pass through a nearly perfect symmetrical amplifier circuit, providing ample headphone output power with low distortion and low noise. The output power of single-ended headphone connection is increased by 50%, and the balanced headphone output is increased by 3 times compared to the previous generation. The addition of a 4.4mm balanced headphone jack makes it easier to connect various popular balanced headphones.

HD Bluetooth & Dual Frequency Wi-Fi
When the Mini-i Pro 3 and Mini-i 3 connected to an LDAC enabled Android device over Bluetooth, up to 24Bit/96kHz high-res audio can be transmitted. The aptX HD technology allows compatible devices to transmit 24Bit/48kHz high-res audio wirelessly over bluetooth. The dual-band Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections enable the Mini-i Pro 3 to have high-speed and stable network access. The enclosed antenna system covers the different bands available on the Mini-i 3 and Mini-i Pro 3 for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi*.

MQA Core Decoding and Rendering
MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to easily be streamed.
