It’s hard these days to draw a line between the computing world and the AV industry. Equipment these days are always in some way or form able to work with the wired or wireless devices, linking everything from receivers and players having built in network, Bluetooth and wireless internet connectivity. The marriage between the AV and IT world has spawned many hybrid companies that produced audio products catering more to the audiophile computer users. These products come with designs and features that are focused on getting the best audio performance from your music stored on any of your desktop or portable IT equipment.

 

 

 

 

Audioengine is a small but well established equipment manufacturer that does exactly that. Providing complete audio solutions for IT users to maximize their audio enjoyment from their music selection found on their computers or portable devices. Audioengine’s lineup includes active and passive speaker systems, DAC’s, a desktop amplifier and even Bluetooth speaker systems. These are audio equipment designed to be simple, plug and play audio systems that work directly with your PC requiring minimum add-ons.
