Enjoy wireless audio playback with the Audioengine W3 Wireless Audio Adapter Bundle. The included transmitter connects to nearly any audio source via USB or 1/8" and sends the signal via a dedicated Wi-Fi network to the included receiver up to 100' away, which connects to your receiver or other powered component via 1/8". It can transmit to up to three total receivers with no loss in quality; additional receivers are optional and available separately.

Wireless Audio Connectivity
The W3 wireless system is designed to transmit bit-perfect PCM stereo. Because the USB controller in the sender and the DAC in the receiver are segregated by the wireless subsystem, anomalies such as jitter, grounding, and induced cable noise are reduced. In addition, the W3 enables you to physically isolate a potentially noisy computer from the sensitive audio components in your system. The sender can also transmit to up to three receivers simultaneously, with the additional receivers sold separately.
TI CC8520 PurePath SoC
The W3 utilizes the TI CC8520 PurePath USB wireless system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution. The sender can be powered directly via the USB bus or from the included power adapter.
CS4344 DAC
The W3 receiver uses the CS4344 DAC (digital-to-analog converter) to help provide low noise and distortion.
Cut the Audio Cord
Enjoy wireless playback from nearly any audio device to nearly any component, including powered speakers, receivers, or a powered subwoofer. The W3 is designed to provide CD-quality audio wirelessly.
Interference-Free Design
Using its own Wi-Fi network, the W3 is engineered to provide interference-free audio without the dropouts, static, or noise that can be caused by your routers, phones, or other wireless devices.
Additional Features
  • CS5343 ADC (analog-to-digital converter)
  • 1V RMS output with a 470 Ohm impedance
  • -65 dB crosstalk
  • Up to 16-bit native input bit depth
  • Up to 48 kHz native input sample rate
  • Compatible with USB version 1.1 and up

on the receiver end, can the speaker be non-powered?
Asked by: Ward
This wouldn't power a passive speaker. The speaker on the other end would need an amp if it is a passive speaker.

question

I have two receivers/amplifiers, one to power speakers inside and the other to power speakers outside and they are connected so they can play the same music at the same time. I would like to play music on my laptop and/or my tablet and/or an Ipod through this system without having to connect to either amplifier. Also, I'd like to be able to use outside or inside amplifier independently too so someone can be watching TV inside while music plays outside. Question #1 Do my amplifiers need to have a USB connection? Photos show USB connection on back of powered speakers. Question #2 Can the Audioengine be powered by a wall outlet instead of USB and be connected via RCA cables? Question #3 Would I need to buy two Audioengines to be able to use my two amplifiers independently? Just not sure how this all hooks up to achieve what I want to achieve.

Answers in order :1. Your Amp does not need a USB connection. If it has an USB connection maybe you could use it to supply power for one Audioengine receiver. It depends of the type of USB connector on the Amp. Check with your Amp. manufacturer. I prefer the to buy another power supply, read answer two.2. Yes, if you use an Audioengine wall adaptor, similar at the one that came with your kit. Audioengine sells that type of adapter as an accesory. You could buy it with this Code B&amp;H # AUUSBPA.3. Yes you need to buy another unit, but only the receiver Code B&amp;H # AUW3R. The reason is because I do not know your audio connection diagram. Maybe with the kit you have and if you operate your audio device in a master/slave situation and all your audio sources are connected to the master and if you select from that to activate the only slave or only the master or both, then you need only the kit you have. You have to connect the Audioengine receiver as a CD player or iPod connected direct by cable. Otherwise you need the last accesory I mentioned lines above and pair both Audioengine receivers to your Audioengine transmitter.NOTE 1 : The Audioengine transmitter should be connected to the source you want to play, like your iPod, notebook, tablet, celullar phone, etc NOTE 2 : English is not my maternal language, I tried my best to make this message to be understandable.
