Stereonet - November 2022 Applause Award

"No question about it; the Pro-Ject MaiA S3 is going to appeal to lots of people. Despite being tiny, it is hugely versatile, sounds excellent, runs cool, and sells for a very reasonable price."


AV Forums - November 2022 Best Buy Award

"From my perspective, I’d rather have 23 good watts than 100 indifferent ones and the Maia S3 delivers a performance and flexibility across those connections that is hard to match at the price."


Hi-Fi Choice - August 2022 5 Star Review & Group Test Winner

"The digital board is the best here, the Bluetooth sounds great and the phono stage is also very accomplished indeed."




My Audiophile Integrated Amplifier, or MaiA, represents all that is good about modern hi-fi. It’s compact, powerful, feature-rich, elegant and affordable. Benefiting from Pro-Ject’s many years of success in the micro hi-fi realm, it brings a DAC, a phono stage, a wireless receiver, a headphone amplifier and an integrated amplifier all into one compact chassis that perfectly complements other S3 products.


Boasting a massive eight inputs, MaiA S3 is designed to accommodate any modern source, including turntables, CD players, network music players and wireless devices. This is what starters with ambitious home audio systems need: A small integrated amplifier with ultimate input flexibility, future-proof technology and a core focus on uncompromising sound quality.


Through its built-in Cirrus Logic CS4344 DAC chip, capable of handling up to 24-bit / 192kHz digital audio files, MaiA S3 easily handles most common digital audio formats. Additionally, working with aptX HD® technology, MaiA S3 is also capable of streaming high-resolution audio wirelessly when the supplied Bluetooth antenna is connected.


As well as accommodating for modern and future audio technologies, MaiA S3 is also equipped to support traditional hi-fi sources. The built-in Moving Magnet phono stage is based upon Pro-Ject’s iconic Phono Box designs and produces an impressive sound performance. There are also four analogue Line-level inputs, so radios, CD players and Tape decks can also be easily connected.


On top of its extensive list of connection options, MaiA S3 is also designed to put sound quality first. Pro-Ject’s extensive knowledge of premium audio has produced a sound signature that is surprisingly analogue in its feel, thanks to the brand new low-noise circuitry, built-around the dual-mono design principle. So, when matched with a set of good-quality matching speakers, MaiA S3 will punch well above its diminutive weight. The system can also be expanded with a subwoofer or a separate power amplifier thanks to the variable pre-amplifier output.


MaiA S3 is finished off with a 6.3mm headphone socket, for when using speakers isn’t an option, and control is effortlessly simple, whether using the supplied remote control or the front-mounted buttons. With the S3 Series’ new all-aluminium casework in a slightly larger size than previous generations, MaiA S3 is a delight – both audibly and visually.
