    Audioengine W3 Reviews

    W3 Premium Wireless Audio Adapter is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from super frangil & connection fails constantly great when it works but i've had three of them so far. the first dropped on my table from only 10 and it was dead. last two were replaced by audioengine because they were malfunctioning -- connection was either spotty or the pairing of the sender & receiver was permanently lost. i'm on my third W3 now and the connection is starting to drop again. i've followed all of their pairing help remedies with no success. i called the company and they no longer offer phone support so put in a ticket request several times explaining the problem but no one ever called back. they must know they have no answer. too bad there's no comparable product. super simple idea that just doesn't work reliably.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Multi modal audio wireless transfer The system was purchased to transfer audio to outdoor speaker setup from different music sources. It is trivially easy to set up and performs as promised. I used it to send audio from computer audio files and Pandora and other radio sites. I used it to send audio from CD player RCA output to the same speaker setup. Problems: it has a definite distance limit. 50' from source to receiver across rooms etc is the max I got though the product claims 70'. Maybe the latter is unobstructed transmission. Also the quality of the power supply and its fit to the transmitter and receiver is poor. I substituted old iPhone USB power supply with good improvement. Still it does mostly what it promises. And has been dependable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly! These units transmit & receive very high-quality stereo audio. Setup could not be easier. I use them to send the line-level mix of a set of pro-quality microphones to camcorders at 2 different locations at concerts. Before using them I tested them outside and they worked as far away as I could get (100 feet) with a long power cord. At the concerts the distance is about 50 feet, but the signal has to travel through wood panels and part of the audience. No problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hear your computer in hi fi! I use this product to send music (YouTube especially) from my computer to my stereo system. It was very easy to set up following the direction. It malfunctioned at first, but I contacted the manufacturer, and they sent out useful instructions to correct the problem. So far it is working fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for wireless audio. I needed this product to stream audio from my projector to my stereo. The product itself is nice and small. Plug and play, works perfect right out of the box.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Audioengine W3 Incompatible with New Mac I bought the Audioengine W3 in August 2015. I use it with a large collection of MP3 albums, mostly classical music, which at that time resided on my MacBook Pro 17 from late 2011 in my office, running Mac OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite. I use the W3 to transmit the signal from my Mac to a Denon AVR driving a pair of ADS speakers in my living room at 100 watts per channel, using any of the USB 2.0 ports on the Mac and the W3's DAC. After some effort, and following suggestions from Audioengine support, I got it to perform flawlessly, with no dropouts over hours of testing. Then I bought a new MacBook Pro 15, late 2015, running Mac OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan, and I upgraded the 2011 Mac to El Capitan and a fast solid state drive. The W3 continues to work flawlessly from the refurbished old Mac. On the new Mac, the performance is unacceptable, with dropouts every few seconds. This happens with the two Macs sitting side-by-side under identical conditions. There is no interference from my WiFi router because I have tested it with router powered down. The only difference I can identify is that the 2011 Mac has USB 2.0 ports whereas the new Mac has USB 3.0 ports. I have repeatedly asked Audioengine support whether they have tested the W3 with a new Mac, or with USB 3.0 ports. Rather than answer this straightforward question, they have repeatedly sent me their identical form letter with suggestions for improvement, to which I have already replied in detail. They have authorized me to return the W3 for testing and possible repair or replacement. Without a reply about the new Mac hardware, I feel this would be futile. My tests show that there's nothing wrong with the W3 on the old Mac with USB 2.0. I have found a workaround. I continue to use the W3 with the old Mac. That works, but it's inconvenient. If this problem is not addressed, then I could not recommend the W3 for use with recent Macs.
