Product Details

Audioengine W1 Wireless Audio Adapter, Model AW1

The Audioengine W1 is designed to connect your audio components wirelessly. Think of AW1 as a simple replacement for any RCA or 3.5" mini-jack cable to or from your iPod, Audioengine powered speakers, computer, TV, surround-sound receiver, game console, network music player - or any other product where you want to eliminate audio cables. The AW1 consists of 2 parts, the "Sender" and "Receiver". The Sender transmits audio from your computer through USB audio or from any product with 3.5mm mini-jack or RCA audio outputs. The other side of AW1, the Receiver, connects audio to any product with mini-jack or RCA audio connectors. Power for the Sender and Receiver is provided from either a USB computer port, from the included USB AC power adapter, or from any other USB AC charger (such as an iPod charger, for example). Another USB power source is the Audioengine A5 powered speakers, which are equipped with a ComboPort(r) USB charger on top of the left speaker.

Key Features:

  • Audioengine W1 (AW1) - Premium Wireless Audio Adapter
    Transfer music wirelessly from any audio device or computer to your Audioengine powered speakers, surround receiver, or powered subwoofer. CD-quality HD stereo sound with no reduction in audio quality
  • Unwire your music
    Hear all your music - no dropouts, static, or noise. Some pretty clever engineering means your music remains free from interference from wireless routers, cordless and mobile phones, microwave ovens, Bluetooth and WiFi devices. Wireless that works
  • Easy setup
    Most wireless audio products are difficult to use because they require you to download and install software, set up a network, and often require you to manually try to find a clear audio channel. The AW1 is plug-and-play so no software installation is needed - just connect both dongles to USB power (or to a USB battery pack), connect the audio cables, and wait 2 to 3 seconds for the status lights to go solid. Two stereo mini cables and an RCA adapter cable are included for easy connection to all your gear

        Best Uses

          Comments about Audioengine W1 Wireless Audio Adapter:

          After researching this product, I wasn't necessarily surprised at its ease of use or great performance. What was surprising though was that it configures as a USB Sound Card, which either I missed in the descriptions or isn't stated. This means that you don't need to patch the input of the transmitter to the headphone jack if you use it on a computer. (Patch cord is still required if using a standalone music player). It also means you have essentially an all-digital transfer right up to the amplifier, so there are no issues with poor laptop sound card quality or excessive noise.

          Transmission range was more than adequate to reach the receiver from everywhere in my house, including from the opposite corner on a different floor.

          I noticed a couple of dropouts but after adding more memory to my laptop (for other reasons) that problem went away -- point being the problem was not with the AW1.

          The one "con" I can cite (a minor one) is that the physical construction of the AW1 is a USB plug connected to a small box by a short flexible cord. While it seems durable enough, I would think a solid device (sorta like a thumbdrive) would add long-term reliability and could even reduce the size of the device. I suppose the flexible cord is a plus if you are tight on space but that's the only reason I can think of for doing it that way.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Fast delivery and definitely the best price.

            Works great except if you are using a wireless mouse. The signal slows the mouse response time.

            DOESN'T WORK

              • Distorted Sound

              • Smaller Rooms

              Comments about Audioengine W1 Wireless Audio Adapter:

              Unit does not work as advertised. It is subject to drop-offs and interference from neighbors WIFI
              transmissions. As such the unit is unusable to send Internet Music from my PC to my Audio
              Receiver not more than 30 feet away in another room. I will instead purchase RF-Link AVS-5808
              5.8GHz Wireless 8-Channel Indoor Audio/Video Transmitter/Receiver System.
