Could those Wiim mini stream from their aux in to usual airplay device like Airport express boxes? From the user guide I understand they can from Wiim to Wiim but I wonder if an usual Airplay network can catch the stream also. Thank you.
No. A useful way of conceptualizing the Wiim mini is that it is a BeoSound Core, only with a 92% discount. Of course its quality standards may be lower, and you cannot use the Bang and Olufsen app —and must instead use the Wiim app if you want to use the app—, but it does more or less the same things.
So the Wiim mini will not wirelessly transmit: it is only a receiver, which sends wired sound (analog or digital, at your choice) to an amp, or to powered speakers, or to the aux-in in a music system.
The only other port on the Wiim mini itself is a signal-sensing aux-in (same as the Core).
Someone please correct me if I got any of this wrong.
I have a few Wiim minis – they’re great little streamers.
Hi alls and apologies to the OP for interrupting. Could those Wiim mini stream from their aux in to usual airplay device like Airport express boxes? From the user guide I understand they can from Wiim to Wiim but I wonder if an usual Airplay network can catch the stream also. Thank you.
No thats not possible I’m afraid, but as you say it can distribute line in to other wiim streamers.
I already figured out that connecting a USB charger to the BP’s USB port doesn’t work.
Hi alls, sorry to break in. You know one thing leading to another… Here I am…
Xavier, one thing leading to another, there is this thing: an old audio interface that is meant to be used with a computer but drivers get outdated and the interface became useless. Until a guy found a trick to make it believe it is connected to a computer.
I wonder if there is the same chip into the Beoport and/or this can be an inspiration?
