Top home audio brand Monitor Audio have today released their new IA40-3 compact Bluetooth amplifier.

Designed to make single room and TV sound solutions easier and better sounding than ever it features dolby digital decoding via optical input from your television and aptX Bluetooth streaming.

The Monitor Audio IA40-3 is perfect for single room applications such as kitchens, bedrooms and even gardens. It's powerful at 60W per channel on two channel applications and can adequately power two pairs of 8 ohm speakers.

We'll be highly recommending this amplifier for single room speaker systems where you want some extra power and sound quality when paired with Monitor Audio in ceiling speakers.


The Monitor Audio IA40-3 features aptX Bluetooth streaming for wireless music from your smartphone or tablet, an optical audio input and even a subwoofer output for connecting to an active subwoofer for the ultimate 2.1 speaker system.

You can use any speakers with the Monitor Audio IA40-3 depending on your application.

It'll happily power in-ceiling or in-wall speakers, garden speakers and even passive soundbars such as the Monitor Audio SB-3

All in all we think the Monitor Audio IA40-3 is a great amplifier that produces a great sound and has many use cases.
