The vertical design of the N22 with its integrated stand allows the 22 watt/per channel stereo class A/B amplifiers to run cool through passive convection without a fan or massive heatsink. The N22 fits easily on your desk and doesn't take up much space.
For headphone enthusiasts the N22 includes a high-performance, low-noise discrete amplifier which works well with all types of headphones and earphones.
The Audioengine N22 has a built-in power port for iPod charging while listening to your music. The USB connector allows you to charge and power your iPod, iPhone, Audioengine wireless adapters or any other USB powered product. USB is for power only, not USB audio or data transfer.
The N22 includes a variable preamp output so you can connect a subwoofer, external amplifier, or Audioengine wireless adapter and control the volume of the line-out from the front panel.
Both audio inputs on the N22 are active so two audio sources may be connected to the amplifier at the same time without the need for an input switch. A standby idle mode is also included to conserve power when you're not playing music.
Use the N22 amp, Audioengine P4 passive speakers, and our W3 wireless adapter for a low-cost but great-sounding wireless rear channel setup for your home theater.
The N22 is an efficient design and works great with any 4, 6, or 8 ohm passive speakers, including the Audioengine P4!
Yes, the N22 will work well with headphones or earphones with an impedance from 16 to 300 ohms.
Sure. We've included two 5-foot, 16-gauge speaker wires with the N22 but any "stranded" speaker wire will work. The standard-size speaker binding posts on the back of the amp will accept bare stranded wire, however if you want to terminate the wires we recommend using spade or pin-type terminals.
Yes, simply connect the full-range output of the N22 into your sub's line-level input. The sub and speaker volume can be controlled together by the N22 volume control.
Yes, the N22 amp + P4 passive speakers + W1 or W3 wireless stereo adapter will make a great-sounding wireless rear channel setup.
Yes, the N22 uses an external switching power supply so it will automatically convert to a different voltage when plugged in. The power cable is also detachable which makes it convenient to replace the AC plug with a different type if you don't want to use an adapter plug.
The N22 needs to be kept upright with the stand attached for proper cooling.
Sure, the N22 has a power-saving idle mode that activates after you stop playing music. If I plug in headphones will the N22 mute my music playing through the speakers? Yes, plugging in headphones will bypass the speaker output so audio will play through your headphones only.
First check to see if the green LED on your power supply brick lights up when AC power is applied and that all of the pins are straight and connected properly. If the light comes on:
