Review: Audioengine N22 Amp, P4 speakers, and S8 Subwoofer – Big sound, small footprint, No Dock required

Macenstein
7 April 2011
  • Conclusion: The triple-threat combination of Audioengine’s N22 Amplifier ($199), their P4 passive speakers ($249) and their S8Subwoofer ($349) clocks in around $800, and may be a bit pricier than many people looking for a way to play music from their iPods are looking to spend, but its a solid combo that will...
  • Pros: Some of the best sound you can get for under $1000, nice design, USB port (N22) for charging your iDevice, outlet for an AirPort Express (S8)
  • Cons: Not cheap (but worth it), N22 could use a power outlet for an AirPort Express, or AirPlay support would have been killer

Expert Review

14 February 2011
  • Summary: This small desktop amp fulfills the need for an unobtrusive device to be used at work. It is small enough to fit on my workstation and the simple design is not distracting to myself or anyone around me. I used it initially to drive my ATH-M50Ws but have recently upgraded to Audeze EL-8Cs.
  • Pros: Ample power, small footprint, multiple source inputs, simple operation, supplied interconnects, clean sound, relatively inexpensive
  • Cons: Wish it had one more source input, noticeable pop when power turned off/on even when not on

Audioengine N22 Amp Offers Desktop Musicians Powerful, Clean Sound

The Mac Observer
14 February 2011
  • Conclusion: If you can’t tell, I love this amp. It’s small, the 22 watts of analog power (the “22” in N22) per side are more than enough for most users, I think, and it sounds great. I do have the tiniest quibble, though, and it is tiny .
  • Pros: It offers an easy-to-use interface, convenient ports, and clear, powerful soundfrom a Class A/B analog amp that will be highly valued by desktop musicians and producers, all in a compact design.
  • Cons: The industrial design is rather pedestrian, especially compared to the company’s great looking speakers.  This is a tiny quibble.
