Audioengine has launched a new wireless music system, the HD3. The system features a pair of two-way bookshelf speakers with 0.75-inch silk-dome tweeters and 2.75-inch Kevlar midrange drivers, powered via Class AB amplifiers located in the left speaker. You can connect sources directly via stereo analog, mini-jack, or USB, or you can go the wire-free route via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The HD3 also has a headphone output and supports connection of a subwoofer. The HD3 is available now for $399/pair.
Audioengine has introduced the HD3 wireless music system. More than just a powered multimedia speaker, the HD3 is a complete music system that allows you to listen to all of your music from any source.
“Classic speaker design with no plastic, full stereo sound, whole-house wireless and no setup hassles make HD3 the ultimate mini music system.” says Brady Bargenquast, Audioengine co-founder.
Life is complicated. Listening to your music shouldn’t be.
The HD3 is simple to use and designed for the way people listen to music today. Connect any way you like: wireless or wired, digital or analog. Play your music library or stream TIDAL, Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube from just about anywhere in your house without dropouts. The HD3 works seamlessly with all your favorite audio players and streaming music services, so no matter how you connect and listen, the HD3 has you covered.
Dave Evans, Audioengine co-founder, added, “We designed the award-winning HD Series for the way people listen to music these days, and the HD3 is another game-changer for home, office, and personal audio.”
Amplifiers are built inside the left speaker for an efficient mini stereo system that makes setup a breeze. We’ve included connections for your phone, tablet, computer, and turntable — and you can even add a subwoofer. Wireless setup takes about a minute, as there’s no software to install, no apps to download, and no Wi-Fi passwords to enter. If you’re using the HD3 at your desk, connect up direct to your computer with a USB cable for a high-end listening experience. But if you’re not keen on USB or wireless, you can use one of the included audio cables.
High- fidelity personal audio
The HD3 also includes an audiophile-quality headphone amplifier that sounds great and drives even the most-demanding headphones.
Audio performance is critical, but speakers also need to look good, so we’ve included aluminum trim accents, detachable magnetic grills, and real wood veneers that blend with any decor.
