This looks like a serious piece of kit for the price. I assume/ hope that there are streaming apps installed on the device, and one doesn't need a smartphone to stream to this- and that Deezer might be supported...if so, looks like a great deal. Can't wait to learn more and see reviews when it launches!

Yes I have the other WiiM Products and each one starting with the WiiM Mini, WiiM Pro, Pro Plus etc have been incredible bargains with so many well implemented hardware and software features and got incrementally better and better. I have no doubt the Ultra will be an incredible device. I am most curious about the headphone output since that is something new for WiiM / Linkplay.

It's indeed a incredible pricing. The most advanced part being the software. We're seeing some more installed brands totally unable to provide advanced features like multiple parametric EQ. Here on top of the device you can still use the full-features app to control it. Just the ROON certification says it all.

I just doubt the name ULTRA as I think there's a huge spot for a top of the line product and this one should be considered mid-fi. Think of an equivalent to EverSolo DMP A8.

When I think that Shanling is selling unusable hardware half backed for twice the price...

I think it’s a usb mass storage device like the WiiM amp - I have a 1 TB ssd of my music on my Wiim AMP and it works very well as a DLNA server / transmitter to other devices
yes I read that somewhere but it would have been nice to get a usd out and not only coax and spdif.

WiiM support mentioned on their forum:

The USB port on this device supports dual functionality: it can be used for USB storage as an input or as a USB audio output. For simultaneous use of both functions, you can connect a USB hub.

Note: USB audio in is not supported.
