Great Upgrade

Nick, Crutchfield
18 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. If you are looking for a much more immersive audio experience I highly recommend.
  • Pros: Plenty of power (I'm not driving planar magnetic ear speakers) Detailed Uncolored
  • Cons: none

Audioengine D1 - Well worth the buy

Fred, Crutchfield
25 October 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. I recently purchased the Audioengine D1 so that I could stream high quality music from my computer to my audio system.
  • Pros: Great value and addition for playing digital files from a computer system.
  • Cons: None whatsoever.

Big Sound, Little Box

BigRedCajun, Crutchfield
16 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. I'm using an HP desktop computer and feeding an ART SLA-1, 100watt/chnl amplifier connected to a pair of Definitive Technologies SM-350 monitors.
  • 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.

Awesome product!

Sam, Crutchfield
24 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. I would 100% recommend buying this!
  • 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

  • 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.

Sound Great

treker88, Crutchfield
18 June 2013
  • Summary: The Audioengine D1 has great design and build quality, and the audio is really good. I'm using it with the USB connection (haven't tried the optical input yet), Windows 7 laptop, and Bose AE 2 headphones. Most of my music files are variable bit rate mp3 with a high of 328k to a low of 128k. The audio preformance has the warmth of a tube amp with the detail and clairty of a solidstate amp. I'm really like it, highly recommend.
  • Pros: really good audio
  • Cons: none

E Rey little bit helps

Siuate, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I packed the D1 on my summer trip and have it hooked up to a Mac Air and Bose Soundlink Bluetooth speaker. It sounds great! I was able to easily compare it with a Bluetooth and 3.5mm cable hook-up and it's quite noticeable. There is ample bass and the midrange is clearer. If you care at all about sound quality, the D1 is a pretty inexpensive way to improve your tunes.
  • Pros: Good build and comes with the 3.5 mm audio cable.
  • Cons: Have grippy or suction style feet so unit can stay in place.
