Product Description

Audioengine W3 Premium Wireless Audio Adapter - Play all your music wirelessly from any audio device or computer to your Audioengine powered speakers, stereo receiver, or powered subwoofer. W3 provides CD-quality HD stereo sound with no reduction in audio quality. Functional Overview The Audioengine W3 is designed to connect your audio components wirelessly. The W3 handles USB audio up to 16 bits/48KHz with no compression, as well as analog audio via a 3.5mm minijack. Think of the W3 as a wireless 16-bit USB DAC as well as a wireless audio link. The W3 consists of 2 parts, the \"Sender\" and \"Receiver\". The Sender transmits audio from your computer through USB audio or from any product with 3.5mm mini-jack or RCA audio outputs. The other side of W3, the Receiver, connects audio to any product with mini-jack or RCA audio connectors. Power for the Sender and Receiver is provided from either a USB computer port, from the included USB AC power adapter, or from any other USB AC charger (such as an iPod charger, for example). Another USB power source is the Audioengine A5+ powered speakers, which are equipped with a USB charger on rear of the left speaker. Differences between W3 and W1 The main difference between W3 and W1 is that while the W1 could \"hop\" between multiple receivers, the W3 is be able to transmit to up to 3 receivers simultaneously. In addition, the W3 provides greater resistance to interference from other Wi-Fi devices. Unwire your music Hear all your music - no dropouts, static, or noise. Some pretty clever engineering means your music remains free from interference from wireless routers, cordless and mobile phones, microwave ovens, Bluetooth and WiFi devices. Wireless that works.

I've had this thing for about three months and it's driving me crazy. It works as advertised - you plug it into each device, play the music on the computer, and it comes through my stereo. Outstanding. What is not outstanding is that the signal drops at random intervals anywhere from 1-10 seconds. Nothing. Dead air during the playing of a song. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for it to do this so it's very frustrating. If not for this signal drop, I'd rate it as a solid five-stars. If I can figure out how to solve this problem, I'll come back and say that. However, at this moment, frustrated and disappointed.

First off, let me say that Audioengine's 3 year warranty is phenomenal! I previously owned the W1 wireless adapter, which worked flawlessly for 2 years of nearly constant use. One day, the sender unit stopped working, so I emailed Audioengine and they sent me the W3 free of charge. The only difference is the W3 is capable of sending audio to multiple receivers. Awesome!

I live with 2 roommates and we all keep our music on our laptops. We have a nice stereo system in the living room (tower speakers, subwoofer, etc...) and the W3 allows us to easily switch between audio sources without our mobility being limited by an auxiliary cable. We have never experienced signal issues despite having plenty of Wi-Fi networks and microwaves operating nearby 24/7. I cannot distinguish a difference in audio quality between using an AUX cable or the W3. Testing was done with minimum 320kbps files.

The W3 is the way to go if you want wireless audio in your home. Apple's AirPlay has never impressed me and doesn't work with programs other than iTunes. The range of Bluetooth audio streaming isn't enough for anything larger than a car or small apartment.

I also own Audioengine's A5 and A2 speakers for my bedroom and the bathroom. Build quality, sound quality, and customer service are both outstanding!

I received this a few days ago to address a dilemma - how to get the audio from my Yamaha Disklavier Mark IV piano to a Sonos based whole house sound system. This works like a champ! The 100 foot transmission distance is reduced by walls and house construction, so be aware of this fact. However, we were able to place the receiver unit in the basement and complete the run to the sound system via a hardwire connected to the receiver unit. The transmitter unit plugs in nicely into a USB interface in the piano's central processing unit. The signal it outputs is nice and clean and, in days of using it, has never dropped synchronization. Since there were no reviews posted before I bought this, I was a little apprehensive. No more. So much so, that I have ordered another one so that I can have wireless connection for Yamaha's RemoteLive piano concerts. That will eliminate the need for wires from a laptop computer to the piano. Great product!

The W3 is a nifty device and can be used to connect almost any device to another (most likely powered speakers) wirelessly. If you listen mostly to MP3s and especially pop/rock then it may be the perfect device. For more complex music, however, some details are lost in translation.

In doing an A/B of the W3 vs. output direct to my receiver, I found a noticable "centering" of stereo sound and thus effective loss of stereo separation. It isn't something you might notice if you don't critically listen to imaging, soundstaging, and spatial cues. To me it was particularly noticable on Vangelis's Blade Runner soundtrack which has a lot of airy reverberation. With the W3, much of it seemed to collapse to a mono signal. This may be due to inherent resolution and bandwidth limitations leading to the higher resolution information getting lost.

That said, it was perfectly okay for casual listening, although it did have a couple connection problems with a gritty thin sound only coming through. Due to these reasons I returned it. I imagine the much more expensive Audioengine D2 Premium 24-bit Wireless DAC would be more in "audiophile" territory, but I'm not willing to fork out that amount of cash for convenience yet. Hopefully in a year or two 24-bit DACs and wireless devices will be more commonplace and prices across the board will come down by a factor of 2-4 which is more where they belong.

Awesome product!!! Works flawlessly and SO SIMPLE to use! All the cables are included to hook up to iTunes/DVD's on my Macbook, and by moving the transmitter to the TV, I get that SUPER Audioengine sound on whatever is playing on the TV screen....TV, movies, games, etc.

I LOVE IT!!!!

By the way, one reviewer complained that this system doesn't work if you have WIFI in your house....definitely Not True in my house! In other words, WIFI in my house does not impair this wireless system at all, so go at it!

I received the W3 to pair with the A5+ Speakers & S8 Sub so I could get a bit of good audio back in my life. For to many years its been fine to listen to whatever was available. Since I spend so much time in my home office since the kids own my TV & surround sound (Ha!) I decided to treat myself, to a move up from the Bose SoundDock (very good for simple listening). I did the usual research most of us do and was convinced to go Audioengine because of their reputation, warranty, price point & features etc that fit my particular needs. I wanted wireless because of my office configuration would require and 3.5 wall speaker wire or an up and over the door set up, neither was attractive so I opted for the W3. It arrived solidly packed and surprisingly simple to understand. Set up was easy but I couldn't get any sound. I read & reread the instructions. Hooked & unhooked, plugged my IPhone into the A5+ to make sure it wasn't the speaker set -up and wham what a sound. So it's not the system set up it must be the W3? I started to get frustrated and decided to shoot an email to Audioengine support instead of yelling at the wife. Within 20 minutes I got a courteous response asking essentially one simple question. Did I remember to plug the short 3.5 cable into the W3 Receiver & the A5+ 3.5 port. Well of course I hadn't DUH, 3 seconds later presto. Wow! what a sound, not a buzz, not a hum, not a drop, fade nothing. I stayed up late and got up early in the morning just to marvel and pat myself on the back at how well this system all works. I'm sorry others apparently didn't receive the same timely and effective support but that wasn't my experience. P.S. I like bass so that's why I got the S8, love it but really in an office setting the A5+'s were more than enough. Why 5 stars when there's better out there? Well I'm not comparing them to any other standard. For what I wanted, my price point they met and exceeded my hopes and expectations. - Cheers!
