Audioengine Introduces N22 Premium Desktop Audio Amplifier
DENVER, CO - October 22, 2010 - Audioengine today announced the release of the Audioengine N22 Premium Desktop Audio Amplifier. The N22 is a compact integrated stereo power amplifier and high-quality headphone amp. Connect your iPod, computer, and speakers or headphones for a great-sounding personal stereo system.
More power in a smaller size
Perfectly suited for your desktop or a smaller space in your home or office, N22 is easy to connect to your Mac or PC with no software to install or settings to change.
Pair the N22 amp with the Audioengine P4 passives or your favorite speakers for a high-end mini desktop hi-fi music system. Connect a subwoofer via the variable line output and charge your iPod via the USB power port. Two audio inputs are standard so you can plug in your computer, iPod or stereo directly.
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 bulky 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 Burr-Brown/TI amplifier, which works well with all types of headphones and earphones.
