Home Theatre Review, November 2015
Comments of Note:
"Pro-ject Audio Systems also sent the RPM Carbon 3 turntable, so I took it for a spin on the MaiA to take advantage of the moving-magnet phono input. The vinyl tracks I used--Pat Benatar's Get Nervous (Vinyl/Chrysalis) and Van Halen's Fair Warning (Vinyl, Warner Brothers)--played through the MaiA incredibly, and what I heard can be best described as an organic sound quality, with great detail and accuracy. Even with these rock bands, the warmth of the vinyl beamed through."
"I found the Pro-ject Audio MaiA to be a well-made and serious electronic integrated amplifier with a host of inputs and versatility. The MaiA can handle any source I can think of and has an abundance of features that I could not find, collectively, on any other single product. My first impression is that the MaiA is perfect for the aspiring audiophile, allowing experimentation with a variety of sources. However, after living with the MaiA for several months, I realized that an experienced audiophile would enjoy the MaiA, as well."
"If you are looking for starter product or the foundation for a second system, you should really give the Pro-ject MaiA serious consideration."
