It's the Upgrade Every System Could Use

The W3 is a Sender/Receiver system, which means it has everything you need to go wireless. It doesn’t need an app or network setup, an impressive range of up to 100 feet, and produces true hi-fi stereo sound without dropouts or interference. Who knew you could expect such big things from such a little piece of equipment?

Setup in Less Time Than It Takes to Read This

A lot of audio equipment says it's "plug-and-play," but is it paired right out of the box? With the W3, the Sender unit automatically finds the Receiver unit, so you're ready to go as soon as everything's plugged in. Connect the W3 sender to any audio source, like your computer, TV, integrated amp, turntable, and more, then connect the W3 Receiver to any input on your stereo, powered speakers, or subwoofer and in seconds you’ve got wired-quality sound—without any of the wires.

Nothing Can Stop the Music with the W3

How can you get in a groove when the drrops have static, or noise? You can't. And, with the W3, you won't. Thanks to some very clever engineering, your music remains free from interference from Wi-Fi routers, phones, and other wireless devices.

Put the Boom Anywhere in the Room

If you own a subwoofer, like Audioengine's S6 Powered Subwoofer or S8 Powered Subwoofer, you know where you place it can make all the difference in the world. And if you're still wrestling with cables, well, that limits your choices. But with the W3, you have the freedom to plant your subwoofer where it sounds—and looks—best.

The W3 latency is under 20ms so it's perfect for using with video - home theater surround or basic 2-channel audio. Can I use the W3 for my podcasting studio?

This way you can either control audio from their computers or iPods, or even without a computer from any other audio gear depending on how you connect the W3 Senders and Receivers.

Sure. Connect the W3 Sender to the subwoofer outputs on your A/V receiver and then connect the W3 Receiver to the audio inputs on your subwoofer.
