  1. Audioengine W3 Wireless Audio Adapter Review

    Audioengine W3 Wireless Audio Adapter Review
    While their speakers earned them their great reputation, there is a little gem in their product lineup that we thought deserves more attention. The Audioengine W3 may just seem like a basic wireless adapter at first glance, but it’s really a Swiss Army knife. The W3 kit is a package of a sender, receiver, and power supply. Get a little creative with this $149 device, and the possibilities are endless.
  2. Ayre Acoustics Codex is the Deal of the Century in Performance Audio

    Ayre Acoustics Codex is the Deal of the Century in Performance Audio
    The Codex is a DAC, a headphone amp, and a preamp all rolled into one, packaged up in a small box that can fit right on your desk! Now if you know me well, you know I try to figure out all the different ways to use audio gear, so the Codex turned out to be a real brain teaser. Let's think about this... The most obvious use is as an incredible headphone amp in a desktop situation. You simply connect a good USB cable from your computer to the Codex, tell your computer to send the audio to the Codex, plug in your favorite headphones, and you are all set! The front panel has connections to drive a normal or balanced pair of headphones. In this situation, we are using both the DAC and the headphone amp. To put in perspective just how good this is, I think the Codex is probably equal to if not better than the great sounding Ayre QB-9 DAC and it sports a headphone amp that made Neil Young happy.

They had not moved up on my radar until recently as their products seemed too inexpensive to be very good. After hearing just how good the $149 Audioquest Dragonfly was, I started thinking, “hmm, maybe that inexpensive Audioengine stuff might be worth a test after all.” When one of my old friends left Tidal to go work for Audioengine, I knew the stars were aligning and that I should give them a try.

    Gift Guide 2013: AudioQuest DragonFly
    The DragonFly is an easy way to improve the sound from your computer.  No computer manufacturer spends money on the sound card inside the machine. If it makes noise, that’s good enough. However, did you know you can plug in this tiny USB device and bypass the sound card? It’s so simple - you just plug it in and go...
