Worth Every Penny ... If You Can Establish A Clean Signal

Flatpicnut, Crutchfield
3 February 2013
  • Summary: After reading many reviews (on Crutchfield and elsewhere, which seem to universally average 4 out of 5 stars), I decided to give the W3 a try and purchased it "open box." My computer where the sender is located is approximately 35-40 feet from my stereo receiver, separated by a wall and a doorway. The W3 is mindlessly easy to set up. After establishing the connection with the W3 receiver without a problem, I flipped on Pandora on the computer.
  • Pros: Redbook CD Sound Quality Flexibility In Sending Any Audio From Computer To Stereo Reciever Cost (versus Audioengine D2)
  • Cons: Signal Range/Strength

  • Summary: I returned it and up graded to a NAD DAC (#745DAC1). This product worked fine, but it did not expand the music as much as I expected. The NAD does what i wanted and it is only $50.00 more.
  • Pros: easy set up
  • Cons: does not expand the music enough

Audioengine W3 review

Mike, Crutchfield
28 January 2013
  • Summary: The Audioengine W3 is an excellent product. I'm using it to sent audio from my laptop to my main audio system. This takes the place of an i-Pod with a dock. The W3 sounds better than the i-pod setup. It only seems to be limited by the source sound encoding in i-Tunes (lossless versus a lower sampling rate). There was a setting in my laptop that needed to be changed for proper operation and the Crutchfield tech helpline saved the day.
  • Pros: Works as advertised.
  • Cons: None. It seems to be a great unit.

  • Summary: Got this as a scratch and dent special. Plugged it into a USB port in my Dish box, and into an old receiver in my detatched garage, with outdoor speakers over my hot tub. Works great. Highly reccommend it!
  • Pros: Super easy installation, works great.
  • Cons: Can't complain

Awesome!

  • Summary: Couldn't be happier with this product! I was afraid there would be a lag when I hooked this system up to my Cambridge subwoofer, but it works flawlessly! No lag and it allows my subwoofer to be concealed and kept out of the way without having to run wires across the room. The setup was easy as well - literally plug it in to the wall, plug it in to the receiver and subwoofer, and it connects itself immediately. Virtually no setup.
  • Pros: Easy setup, no lag, works flawlessly.
  • Cons: None

Audioengine W3

Bob B, Crutchfield
1 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased Audio Engine speakers to be able to stream music from the cloud using my tablet. This poorly conceived, badly designed product completely made this totally cumbersome. I understood up front that I would have to plug the receiving unit into ac power. Because this adapter used a proprietary sending devine (rather than bluetooth or wi-fi) I would have had to plug the sending unit in as well. It was just not going to work.

Excellent product, easy setup

  • Summary: Love it! Needed a wireless option to connect a projector and DVD player and laptop and not have wires. This solution is perfect and works great. Sound is amazing and no interference. Used with the Audioengine A5+ speakers. Would buy again in a heartbeat.

Audioengine W3

BillT, Crutchfield
1 September 2012
  • Summary: The Audioengine W3 system is a good little system for connecting your PC to a powered speaker system, and the speaker system must be powered as the signal is certainly not overpowering. I gave it 4 stars because it does as it advertises but falls somewhat short as it seems to be affected by objects in its way more than I would like meaning I had to put the speakers closer to the PC than I would like.
