Our take on the Audioengine W3R

Enjoy great sound in more places

Audioengine's W3R add-on receiver makes it easy to expand your Audioengine W3 wireless audio adapter system to enjoy music in more places in your home. The W3R receives audio signals transmitted from a W3 system's wireless sender from up to 100 feet away, and delivers CD-quality sound to a music system or powered speakers with minijack or RCA audio inputs. This USB-powered receiver is a perfect match for the Audioengine A5+ powered speakers, which feature a handy back-panel USB power output. Plus, it includes an AC-to-USB power adapter for applications where a USB power port is unavailable.

I have three of these driving 3 separate sets of speakers, all work flawlessly, especially the one I have 2 rooms and a couple different walls separating the sender and receiver.

Pros: Zero drops

Cons: none -- delivers as promised

Better than expected

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Incredibly simple to use and great sound quality. I have two receivers. The one closer to the transmitter (25 feet and one wall between) works perfectly. The signal isn't strong enough to work consistently on the other (50 feet and two walls between), however, so I get a lot of dropouts.

Pros: Dead easy to use, great sound

Cons: Signal strength


Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: Multiple Audioengine W3 Receivers may be paired with the Audioengine W3 wireless system (772W3, sold separately allowing the Audioengine W3 system to simultaneously broadcast audio to up to three W3 Receivers with no degradation of the audio signal or range.

Note: The newer chip-sets used in the W3 system are not backwards compatible with the earlier Audioengine W1 or W2 wireless systems.

Pairing: The additional Audioengine W3 Receiver must be paired with the Audioengine W3 wireless system, initially.

Audio Output: The W3 Receiver's audio output is a 3.5mm stereo minijack; no audio signal is transferred through the USB connection. A stereo minijack cable and a stereo minijack-to-RCA adapter cable are provided.

Power Requirements: The W3 Receiver is powered through its USB plug; one USB AC power adapter is included with the system to power either the Sender or Receiver. If not powered by the included adapter, the Receiver can be powered by Audioengine 5+ powered speakers, an iPod power supply, or numerous other USB power supplies currently available.
