Less Wire

Since switching over to an external DAC from your computer’s internal chip, you’ve grown accustomed to the upgrade in sound, but you’re looking for a more convenient way to optimize your music. Coming with full conversion power and an aptX Bluetooth codec that allows wireless transmission, the Audioengine B1 Bluetooth DAC lets you have both superior sonics and complete convenience.

Take a Bite

Known for its low noise and high fidelity, the integrated AK4396 DAC chip can handle up to 24bit output. Raising the your entire library up to the same level, the B1 pads all bit depths to 24bit and brings you a higher signal-to-noise ratio. The result is low noise, low distortion, and entirely clear presentation, making the B1 a vast improvement over the majority of Bluetooth devices. When you add in the aptX Bluetooth codec capable of high quality transmission, you won’t miss a beat.

Room to Roam

After connecting the RCA cables to your stereo and plugging in the power adapter, the B1 automatically searches for Bluetooth devices. From there, simply fire up your Bluetooth enabled device and enjoy high quality transmission up to 100’ away. If you’d like to use the B1 to bridge your device to another DAC or pre-amp, you can connect through the SPDIF output. Finished off with a solid aluminum case, the Audioengine B1 Bluetooth DAC looks great on your desk, stands up to wear and tear, and wirelessly transforms music into something extraordinary.
