The MaiA DS3 at £1,049 ups the ante by some margin with 140W per channel (into 4 ohms). A dual mono design with a Delta-Sigma DAC capable of 32-bit/192kHz PCM and DSD256 plus support for aptX HD Bluetooth, it offers nine inputs including S/PDIF and USB. There’s also a headphone socket and phono input for moving-magnet and moving-coil pick-ups.
