The W3 adapter is a simple plug-and-play wireless audio solution. Ready to go, the W3 is paired right out of the box, so the Sender automatically finds the Receiver, making setup easy. Connect the W3 sender to any audio source – your computer, TV, integrated amp, turntable, etc – and connect the W3 Receiver to any input on your stereo, powered speakers, or subwoofer and in seconds you’ll have wired-quality wireless sound.
EXTENDED-RANGE WIRELESS THAT WORKS
Hear all your music without any dropouts, static, or noise. Some very clever engineering means your music remains free from interference from wifi routers, phones, and other wireless devices.
Finally eliminate that long audio cable from your AV receiver to your sub. W3 gives you the freedom to rock your subwoofer where it sounds and looks best.
The W3 is based on a proprietary wi-fi technology that uses the same frequency bands as 802.11.
Yes, each Sender/Receiver W3 pair transmits 16-bit stereo audio.
Yes, both wireless adapters transmit any audio file format with no compression or loss.
The W3 is a USB Plug-and-Play audio device. which means that the drivers it uses are developed and provided by the developer of your computer's operating system. Because of this, you shouldn't need to download or upgrade any drivers to use your W3.
Yes, each Sender/Receiver W3 pair transmits uncompressed stereo audio from a computer or any analog audio output.
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. There are stereo 1/8" mini-jack inputs and outputs on the W3 that will allow you to make an RCA connection with the use of a Y-cable (which is included).
To do this you would use multiple sets of the W3 to send wireless music throughout your house. We have customers that daisy-chain the W3 (and W2) together from the output of one audio system - your stereo or our powered speakers in the living room, for example - to another system in another part of the house such as a Bose Wave radio in the kitchen. 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.
The W3 can transmit to up to 3 receivers simultaneously.
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? I want a wireless mic to my computer's audio input? Sure, this is a great application for the W3. You can use the W3 to replace any RCA or mini-jack cable, with or without a computer!
Yes! As long as it can provide at least 250mA, any USB power supply or smartphone / tablet charger should work just fine to power the W3 Sender or Receiver.
