The Audioengine D3 Premium 24-bit DAC allows you to bypass your computer's headphone output and send music directly through a USB port for noticeably improved fidelity and a higher output. The D3 is a powerful yet portable converter with performance and features usually found in more expensive DACs.
Improve Your Computer Audio Sound
The digital to audio converter (DAC) in the D3 is far better than that found in a computer. Your music will appreciate the big improvement.
Great Addition for the A5+ Speakers
If you are using the popular A5+ speakers, this makes a great in-between piece to get better audio over to your speakers. Just connect the mini plugs and you are all set.
Drive Any Headphone
Some headphones are challenging to drive, but the amp in the D3 can easily push even the most inefficient headphones. Plus its Hi-Res Audio DAC will make them sound much better.
Connect D3 to a USB port on your Mac or PC and send high-quality music to your headphones or any audio system. D3 includes a USB DAC and headphone amplifier for incredible audio performance in a portable design and is the perfect intro to computer audio.
Setup is easy and no special software is needed, making D3 a true plug-and-play solution. The D3 plugs directly into a USB port on your computer so no external power supply or cables are needed. The output of the D3 connects to headphones, Audioengine powered speakers, or any audio system. The D3 also has a sample rate indicator that shows sample rates above 48K so you’ll know you’re getting the most out of your HD music.
D3 will process digital audio at any bit depth up to 24 bits and any native sample rate to 96KHz. With its high signal-to-noise ratio and low distortion, the D3 delivers sound quality generally heard only in more expensive DACs. The high-performance headphone amplifier was designed for a wide range of headphones and will satisfy even the most demanding headphone enthusiast with its high output and revealing sound. The D3’s asynchronous data transfer carefully controls USB streaming audio from any computer which greatly improves audio performance.
The aluminum case of the D3 reflects traditional Audioengine design and the high-quality components and audio fidelity are typical of Audioengine’s commitment to great sound at affordable prices.
