We all know that the compact Audioengine N22 amplifier is designed to work with a computer. But what are Audioengine N22 specs? See the answer in this Audioengine N22 review.
Its power output per channel is 22W (8 Ohms). Audioengine N22 can work not only in a computer stereo system. Audioengine recommends using this model with P4 speakers and W1 or W3 wireless audio adapters for sounding the surround back channels of your home theater. The amplifier is able to provide an even, warm and natural sound with a rich palette of timbre shades, which will appeal to those fans of Hi-Fi sound who use a computer as the main source. 4 screw terminals with gilding are used, which allow connecting a cable with a large cross-sectional area, equipped with “blades” or “bananas”. The amplifier receives power from an external unit. To do this, there is a 4-pin connector on its rear panel. All necessary cables are included, including two speaker wires of 16 AWG caliber and 1.75 m long.
The amplifier received an unusual shell made of MDF. The front panel is made in the style of minimalism. At its center is an analog volume control, combined with a power switch. Under the regulator is a 3.5 mm output of a high-quality discrete headphone amplifier, which uses the Burr-Brown OPA2134 op amp chip. The model is mounted vertically and rests on a special stand. Thanks to this arrangement, efficient cooling is ensured by means of ventilation slots and internal heat sinks.
The model is equipped with two line inputs - RCA and a mini-jack, thanks to which virtually any analog source can be connected to it. There is an adjustable RCA output for connecting with a power amplifier, subwoofer, etc. There is a USB port, which, however, acts strictly as a power source for USB devices. With it, you can charge your iPhone or iPad, as well as provide current to a proprietary audio adapter designed to transmit the signal wirelessly.
