a worthwhile investment

JH, Crutchfield
23 May 2013
  • Summary: This is a good unit. Its small, it provides better amplification, and you'll clearly hear the difference in the dynamic range in volume and tone. This is particularly useful if you are using full size head phones of high quality.
  • Pros: small, versatile, good value, great improvement over in computer amplifier
  • Cons: have not found any yet.

  • Summary: This little thing is amazing. I use to always say it's crazy to spend $300.00 on a set of headphones to listen to music on your computer until I purchased the Audioengine. I for one love music,and I love how this item makes music sound great.I like jazz and old school and you can hear everything just the way its meant to sound,GREAT music just sounds great. I can listen to music all day now without disturbing others.
  • Pros: Its small,It sounds great.
  • Cons: Could use some more power; or maybe its me.I just like BIG POWER!!!

GOOD HEADPHONE AMP

MURRAY IM, Crutchfield
28 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to use with my receiver. Not a good application. I could only use it with the rca out put of a single component. This is better used in a digital computer set-up.
  • Pros: Used on a single component like my oppo 103 player, it sounds good. The sound is almost three dimensional.
  • Cons: Crutchfield sales said it could be used on my receiver. So far no way.

Not Bad, for the price, a keeper for sure.

Phil W, Crutchfield
5 February 2013
  • Summary: Good sounds, NO ground isolation so you need to be aware of you your installation requirements. Works well with other AudioEngine components. Flawless with my Laptop, Hum (ground) loop issues with my desktop PC.
  • Pros: Easy (up to) 96KHz/24Bit i(USB) interface for Hi-Re music playback, useful volume control, and it sounds good.
  • Cons: No ground isolation...which may or not be a problem for your application. Need some Velcro feet since it is soo light.

Audioengine D1

Walter, Crutchfield
9 December 2012
  • Summary: Using the DAC between my CD player and tube amp in a stereo application. Arrived in good shape.
  • Pros: Seems to work well. Especially note increased clarity in the mid and high ranges. Glad I bought it.
  • Cons: Very small and light...moves around unless you secure it in some way. If not used with a USB port have to purchase a wall adapter for power.

Paired with Audioengine Speakers

Sleepy, Crutchfield
30 October 2012
  • Summary: I paired these up with some Audioengine powered bookshelf speakers for casual listening in my bedroom. The source is FLAC and MP3 files off my computer. The combination has a nice warm tone and does a gorgeous job with sparse arrangements like jazz combos or singer/songwriter type stuff. It has enough punch for a little rock but I don't think it is up to a massive orchestral recording.
  • Pros: great DAC, good problem solver component

D1 DAC

Barry, Crutchfield
8 April 2012
  • 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 surprised and satisfied with the improved performance using the D1 DAC, This is a great product its price point.
  • 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.
