The W3 provides virtually universal wireless audio compatibility with all sources and all playback devices. Send music from your computer to a stereo across the room or from your iPhone, iPod, or Android tablet to a pair of powered speakers in another room. Play back CD quality files from your desktop computer and lie in a hammock on the porch and listen with headphones. Or hook up a subwoofer or AV system rear speakers without running wires.
The Audioengine W3 pair connects devices that source sound files (like computers or iPods) to devices that play them (like stereo components or an A/V system) without running wires between them. Use the W3 pair (sender and receiver) to transport your music, voice recordings, or any sound files, across the room or around the house or a business. Any source with USB digital outputs or RCA or 3.5mm analog outputs and any playback device with RCA or 3.5mm analog inputs can be connected.

The W3 handles true CD quality USB audio -- up to 16 bits/48KHz with no compression. Alternatively, it can also transport analog audio via a 3.5mm (headphone) minijack. Think of the W3 as a 16-bit USB DAC plus a wireless digital-or-analog audio link rolled into one. (For the technically inclined, the W3 Sender also includes an ADC (analog to digital converter) which enables it to transport analog-encoded source data over the same digital channels.
If your source device provides USB digital output, connect digitally for the best sound. If computer-provided USB digital source is not available, you can connect using your source device's headphone jack or Line Out mini-jack or RCA outputs. On the receiving end, just connect USB power to the W3 Receiver and the analog audio output to your playback device.
The W3 consists of 2 parts -- a Sender and a Receiver. The Sender transmits digital audio from your USB source device or analog audio from any device with 3.5mm mini-jack or RCA audio outputs. The W3 Receiver connects the audio to any product with mini-jack or RCA audio inputs.
Power for the Sender and Receiver -- can be provided from a USB computer port, from the included AC USB power adapter, or from any other USB charger (such as an iPod charger.) The Audioengine A5+ powered speakers have a built-in USB charger on back of the left speaker. The S8 Subwoofer has an AC jack where a USB charger can plug in.
Differences between W3 and W1
The main difference between W3 and W1 is the W1 would "hop" from one receiver to another but the W3 transmits to up to 3 receivers at the same time. In addition, the W3 provides greater resistance to interference from other Wi-Fi devices.
Unwire your music
Hear all your music with no dropouts, static, or noise. Some clever engineering means your music remains free from interference from wireless routers, cordless and mobile phones, microwave ovens, or Bluetooth and WiFi devices. This is wireless that really works.
Easy Setup and Simple Operation
Bypass your computer's sound card or headphone jack and send wireless audio to any music system. W3 transmits all music file formats from any computer or media player and can simultaneously transmit audio to up to 3 wireless receivers. Up to two W3 Senders can be used simultaneously from the same source. Each Sender can transmit to up to 3 Receivers. So you can send music to as many as 6 different locations within a radius of 100 ft. Now that's wireless whole house music coverage. The 100ft (30m) typical range, low latency, built-in DAC, and resistance to interference and dropouts makes W3 the best-sounding 16-bit wireless system available.
Hear the Difference
The Audioengine W3 sets a new level of quality and ease-of-use for wireless audio. Even if you're not an audio enthusiast, Audioengine guarantees you will still hear a difference!
