New AirPlay Streamer Announced From Arylic

Following on from a recent announcement for a new high-end AirPlay Streamer from sound specialists Arylic, the company are now preparing for the release of a more budget-friendly streaming device. The new product in question is the S10+ WiFi Music Streamer for a mere US$69. This comes with a caveat though, which offers only AirPlay 1, not AirPlay 2, meaning the S10+ can’t be used as part of a multi-audio setup, although the company offers its own version of multi-room audio if you have more than one of their devices. This also includes devices by WiiM.

That said, if you don’t happen to have the need for multi-room audio, and simply want to stream music to your sole Hi-Fi setup, this may be the thing you’re looking for, given the low price point and decent specs. Whilst it’s an AirPlay capable device, it can also directly work with Spotify Connect, Amazon Music, Tidal, Qobuz, TunIn, BBC Radio, iHeart Radio, and many more.

The front is home to a minimalist LED display to let you know how its connected, which also includes an IR receiver for the company’s own fully featured remote control. The top of the device is home to four separate touch controls for volume, play/pause, and stop control.

The S10+ has impressive connection options too, with WiFi (2.4GHZ b/g/n only), or an ethernet port to connect to your home network, a USB port, should you want to stream audio files directly from a memory stick, Line in for connecting to a CD or MP3 player, and Line out to connect to your audio amplifier, AV receiver, or even an active speaker. If you prefer digital audio, the S10+ comes with a dedicated Optical Out. You can also stream directly to the S10+ using Bluetooth, with the unit supporting Bluetooth 5.3. The S10+ is powered via  standard 5V/1A DC USB-C port, meaning you can even power the amp from something like a laptop or computer.

The S10+ is also pretty compact, weighing 105g, and measuring 108 x 72 x 26.6mm (WDH), making it smaller than most smartphones. Below are the details specs for your information;
