Compact Wireless Streaming Amplifier - The Connect 250 from Elipson is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand but provides a sound much bigger than you would expect. Spotify Connect, Bluetooth and Wifi mean that this amplifier can be used for Hifi or at the heart of an outdoor or multi room audio system.
Its compact size makes it an easy fit for small spaces (30 x 120 x 120mm, HWD), and tucked inside its frame is a Class D amplifier that delivers an output of 2 x 50watts. It can stream music files at 24-bit/44.1kHz and supports Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity for streaming from mobile devices (although it only supports the SBC codec for playback).
Multi-room audio is supported for up to 10 rooms, depending on the strength of the Wi-Fi connection. Elipson say its use in this context is more than just for the home, with the Connect 250 also suitable for powering speakers in a multiroom audio system or outdoor audio system
Small Yet Mighty
The Connect 250 comes packed with two mounting brackets for placement on a wall, or under a false ceiling or shelf. For instances where line of site operation isn’t possible, a remote control and infrared cable are supplied. Connections are few, with speaker terminals and Ethernet port for a hardwired connection to the Internet. The connections are protected with covers to allow for installation in damp or moist environments.
There’s also compatibility with other products in Elipson’s Connect range, which includes the W35, Wi-Fi Receiver and Music Centre Connect (the latter two are due for release in 2021). With the Connect and Elipson BT apps (Android, iOS), each Connect 250 device on the network can be renamed.
