As advertised

Rich, Crutchfield
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Bought this because the sound card in my brand new $2.5k laptop sounds like junk. This thing is awesome. Has trouble driving my Sennheiser hd600s, But they are very hard to drive. Makes my hd380s sound incredible.
  • Pros: Simple, small, sounds great
  • Cons: Can't think of any

D1 DAC

Barry, Crutchfield
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Over the years I have had several high-end audio systems,but limited space since I retired several years ago no longer will accommodate the large speakers and component system. While my new PC based near-field system is a significant step down from what I have been listening to, I have been very...
  • Pros: Very compact, easy to install and performs as advertised
  • Cons: I wished it had two sets of line outputs, either two RCA or XLR and RCA, even if it cost a little more.

Great Upgrade

Nick, Crutchfield
19 November 2013
  • Summary: This is a great little DAC/AMP. I've used the HiFiMan HM-101 in the past and it does a great job for it's price. But this is head and shoulders above that. Immediately noticed much fuller and detailed sound through my AKG K240 MK II's.
  • Pros: Plenty of power (I'm not driving planar magnetic ear speakers) Detailed Uncolored
  • Cons: none

Audioengine D1 - Well worth the buy

Fred, Crutchfield
18 November 2013
  • Summary: Everyone today is interested in video entertainment, and enhancements and features for that purpose. I'm sure there are still others out there, beside myself, who love music far more. I have a great audio system, including a set of Bose 901's and a pre-amp and power-amp from Emotiva.
  • Pros: Great value and addition for playing digital files from a computer system.
  • Cons: None whatsoever.

Big Sound, Little Box

BigRedCajun, Crutchfield
25 September 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the Audio Engine D1 because of cost and also the Audio Engine reputation. Also, I knew that I could get more from my computer system than what my stock sound card could deliver. I also wanted to retrieve a audio through the USB port to keep things in the Digital domain.
  • Pros: A lot of Features for the money. Very Good sound in its price range. Solid Build Quality. Optical Input.
  • Cons: Would love to see a Pro Version with Mini-XLR out.

Audioengine D1

G J,, Crutchfield
16 September 2013
  • Summary: OK, but just not quite there yet. It's a bit sloppy, loses composure with more complex material. Bass seems a little thin. Headphone amp needs more power and a cleaner sound. It's an improvement over a p/c sound card for sure, but not compared to some other products in a similar price range, or for...
  • Pros: Convenient, easy to set-up and play, no drivers, well built
  • Cons: Bass, Headphone amp, sounds ok

Awesome product!

Sam, Crutchfield
27 August 2013
  • Summary: Great product. I bought it because my headphone port on my Macbook pro has some issues and wanted something to bypass it. This was absolutely the best remedy. The DAC is solidly made and the packaging is superior to most others. The sound quality is quite exceptional with good headphone/speakers.
  • Pros: Good sound, build quality, packaging
  • Cons: Maybe the price is bit high? I don't really care the DAC is too good.

Audioengine D1

Bob R, Crutchfield
24 August 2013
  • Summary: Was very skeptical about this product but installed it on my iMac. Made a world of difference over the standard mic port. Amplifier is clean with no hum. Cleaned up the bass but especially the mid range. A little bit of a 3D quality.
