Excellent driver of bookshelf or even floorstanding speakers but the front headphone port is mediocre at best
26 April 2015
Summary: It's good but not perfect. I've been using it regularly for about a year now. The protective storage bag that's included makes it perfect for transporting. I have used this to drive 2 Polk floorstanding speakers and a PSW 505 12" sub, and it performed flawlessly.
Great product but still can't justify the price tag.

Summary: Expensive as hell but top quality. I've got two Polk audio in-wall speakers in my bathroom and was using a Pyle POS to power them. I had all kinds of noise problems and the speakers sounded distorted. Gave this guy a whirl and all of my problems are cleared.
Summary: Not a high-powered amp, but fine for desktop or small room. I'm now driving mine with a JDS Labs ODAC (was able to fit it inside the N22's case) and running a rebuilt pair of old AR18 bookshelf speakers.
Summary: Very clean sound, but does seem a little underpowered coupled with the Audioengine P4. Ran the P4's with a Onkyo mini stereo and got more bass and fuller sound, so definitely needs a sub for me as a desktop unit. Clean and elegant set up for the desk/computer use.
Summary: I have to admit I really didn't have high expectations of the AudioEngine N22. I expected it to charge my iPhone and play music from Sirius. I have plugged my iPhone into an input on a traditional integrated amp and found the listening just okay.
Summary: I can't really say that I'm a true audiophile, meaning I don't think I have the ear to really judge the "top 5%" of high-end audio products. However, I definitely think that I'm able to distinguish and appreciate a modest range of top end audio quality products and I personally feel that you're...
Beautiful amp, amazing sound (but first one was defective)

Summary: I'm incredibly happy with this amp -- the sound quality is incredible, and it has more than enough power to drive my Polk Monitor 30 speakers. I have it in my office, so it is a small room. But I also have to keep the volume just a shade above off, as it really wants to drive them loud!
Great Upgrade For Your Desktop/Laptop or MP3 Player Listening Experience

Summary: I am a software engineer and sit in front of my keyboard a lot, meaning that I end up listening to a lot of music whether it is a streamed Internet station, Amazon cloud player or my local collection of mp3's.
Summary: I haven't tired the other mini amps that are available on amazon (Pyle and Lepai, which both sell for under $100) come to mind, but I didn't feel like spending money on an amp that was reviewed as performing underrated.
