Audioengine D2 Wireless DAC
Audioengine D2 Wireless DAC

Wireless Streaming, Easy Setup

Delivering the audio fidelity and feature set of a much pricier DAC, the Audioengine D2 lets you stream wireless HD audio from your computer to any music system, independent of your Wi-Fi network. It pairs USB and optical inputs with a wealth of wireless features, including a high-quality wireless DAC, a wireless USB-to-SPDIF converter, and a wireless optical PCM-to-stereo link. By streaming directly to your music system, you’ll be able to keep your computer away from your audio gear while minimizing nagging problems like ground loops, induced cable noise, and jitter. The D2 is fast and easy to set up, with no software installation requirements. 

The Reviews Are In

Head-Fi’s HeadphoneAddict says, “The Audioengine D2 is a very nice-sounding low- to mid-level wireless DAC that rivals a wired DAC costing twice as much (albeit without a built-in amp). The RCA output is clean and crisp, and neutral or uncolored sounding, making most audiophiles content with the sound, especially versus using an AirPort Express with AirPlay.”
