Audioengine HD3 Overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy your audio from nearly any source with this pair of satin black Audioengine HD3 2-Way Wireless Bookshelf Speakers. They feature Bluetooth with aptX for wireless connectivity, stereo RCA and 1/8" inputs for traditional wired devices, and a micro-USB input for a dedicated input from your computer. The HD3 has a 2-way design with a two built-in, 15W per channel amplifiers. Each speaker sports a 2.75" Kevlar woofer and a 0.75" silk dome tweeter.

No Missed Connections
Connect to the HD3 any way you like: wirelessly or wired, digital or analog. Stream your music library, TIDAL, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, etc. to the HD3 from just about anywhere in your house (within 100') without dropouts. Wireless setup is designed for simplicity and only takes about a minute. And if you're using the HD3 on your desktop, connect it with a USB cable. The USB input bypasses your computer's built-in headphone jack for an enhanced listening experience. If you're not keen on USB or wireless, you can still use any stereo RCA or 1/8" audio cable to connect.
The HD3 is expandable, so if you want deeper bass, just connect your subwoofer.
Plug In Your Headphones
The HD3 includes a dedicated headphone output so you can listen without waking the neighbors. Its headphone amplifier is designed to deliver quality sound that drives even the most demanding headphones.
Retro-Forward Design
The HD3 features aluminum trim accents and detachable magnetic grilles designed to blend with any décor.
Built-In Amplifiers
Built-in power amplifiers save space and eliminate the need to connect the HD3 to a stereo receiver or external power amp. Simply plug the left speaker into a power outlet and connect the included speaker wire from the left to the right speaker. All internal components of the HD3 are designed and tuned together for a more uniform sound than traditional separate speakers and amplifier.
Integrated Design
The speaker cabinets, drivers, bass port designs, amplifiers, and passive crossovers are all tuned together specifically for the HD3. This is designed to provide for a more efficient system that requires less power than passive speakers and a separate integrated amplifier or similar A/V components.
Built-In B1 and D1
Features from the Audioengine B1 aptX Bluetooth receiver and D1 24-bit DAC are combined in the HD3 to help make it a complete digital audio system.
Bluetooth and aptX
The HD3 is designed to easily connect to any of your devices that have Bluetooth, but for enhanced sound quality, use a device that supports Bluetooth aptX. For Apple devices that don't have aptX, such as the iPad or iPhone, Apple generally uses the AAC codec. It sounds good as well, and you'll get the extra benefit of the upsampling 24-bit DAC.
Extended Wireless Range
Through signal management circuitry and antenna tuning, the HD3 offers a solution that has up to three times the range of standard Bluetooth for multi-room use with no degradation in audio quality.
24-Bit DAC
The HD3 Bluetooth receiver and USB input both utilize the PCM 5102 DAC, which is designed for low-noise and high-fidelity. The PCM 5102 is used as an upsampling DAC and will pad all bit depths to 24-bit, achieving a higher signal-to-noise ratio and lower noise floor. Due to the high signal-to-noise specs of the PCM 5102, the fact that digital signal is upsampled to 24-bits – as well as the added benefit of onboard triple-redundancy power source conversion and filtering – the HD3 Bluetooth implementation presents low noise and low distortion characteristics with a noticeable improvement over other Bluetooth devices.
HD3 Headphone Amplifier
The HD3 contains a headphone amplifier based on the OPA2134 low-noise opamp. This amp is designed to provide low-impedance, high-fidelity audio and a 2V output, which can drive a wide range of headphones.
Amplifier Design
The amplifiers in the HD3 are located in the left speaker and are a class A/B analog monoblock design. This is a more traditional speaker/amplifier configuration, which is designed to provide quality audio and greater flexibility. All circuit boards for the power and preamp sections are vertically mounted for enhanced mechanical shock protection.
Driver Designs
The HD3 uses ferrofluid-cooled silk dome tweeters with neodymium magnets. Silk tweeters are fashioned to hold up well under high power, and the edge-driven design gives a smooth response. The woofers are Kevlar-woven glass-aramid composite with rubber surrounds. Kevlar is designed for strength, so the woofer can retain its shape when being driven at high levels.
Magnetic Shielding
The speaker drivers in the HD3s are directly magnetically shielded.

    Audioengine HD3 Reviews

    HD3 2-Way Wireless Bookshelf Speakers (Pair, Satin Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Speakers I use these to provide audio for outdoor projected movies. They're hard-wired to the iOS device that plays the movies, and they're perfect behind a Spandex screen, with an excellent stereo spatial feel. When not outdoors, I use them via Bluetooth and an iOS device as auxiliary speakers in a different room from where our audio gear is located. Room-filling sound with great detail. They come in walnut, cherry and satin black. All are beautiful, well constructed, and offer multiple kinds of inputs, all simultaneously active. Bluetooth pairing is seamless and long-range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Got it mainly for the multiple input capabilities. I didn't expect such good separation from such a tiny pair of speakers. Construction is solid and the fit and finish superb. I didn't get a chance to test them at loud levels but for normal in-room listening they're perfect.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from They make you pay to return their broken speakers Ive exchanged over 12 emails with Audioengine and they spent the first 8 ignoring every request to return what they have confirmed appears to be a faulty product.  The speakers emit an electronic buzz / feedback sound that is only overshadowed by music when at mid-range volume. If playing music quietly or loudly the buzz is most if not all you can hear. After 5 days of asking how to return these, their support staff -- Patrick -- finally shared how. Which, btw, must be within 5 business days. Coincidently, the amount of time it took them to outline how to return their broken speakers. If they were treating this like their audition, I would have 10 business days to return WORKING SPEAKERS. Most notably... I have to pay to return these expensive paper weights. ! (Thats not going to be cheap.) Long story short, they would send replacements for free, but after dealing with these [insert expletives here] for more than a week, turns out if you dont want to let them keep your money after sending bad product --- THEY MAKE YOU PAY TO RETURN THEIR BROKEN SPEAKERS and give you way less time than if you were auditioning them.
