Audioengine felt there was a gap in its product mix of hi-fi audio systems; namely, a good, straightforward, no-nonsense desktop integrated amplifier and a matching set of high-quality passive desktop speakers. Just as expected, Audioengine has addressed the need for these two missing pieces with its two newest products: the N22 Premium Desktop Audio Amplifier and the P4 Premium Passive Bookshelf Speakers.
Simple, Thoughtful Design
Audioengine N22 is easy to connect to your Mac or PC with no software to install or settings to change. It is a perfect addition that suits your desktop or a smaller space in your home or office. The easy to use dial turns enables the N22 to be turned on/off and volume adjusted so there is no need for other buttons or knobs. N22 also includes a USB power port that’s perfect for powering Audioengine wireless adapters to stream your music wirelessly from your computer or iPod or charging your Smartphone. Your connectivity is more fun.
The N22 is defined by three synergistic sonic characteristics which are smoothness, the richness of tonal colors and natural warmth. Pair the N22 amp with Audioengine P4 passives (or any speakers) for a high-end mini desktop hi-fi music system. Connectivity with your iPod, computer, and speakers or headphones is easy as you are set for a compact and great-sounding personal stereo system. What more? You can even connect a subwoofer to the variable line out and charge your iPod or Smartphone through the USB power port. Seems like a win-win situation here and finally, two audio inputs are standard – RCA and mini-jack connectors – so you can plug in your computer, iPod or stereo directly.
Design is Awesome
Unlike many products stuck in a cheap plastic box, the N22 combines looks and performance with a satin-black finish and integrated stand to keep the N22 upright. The unique upright design cools down the N22 with passive convection instead of using fans or heat sinks. It also can easily fit in tighter spaces for added convenience. Ideally suited for your desktop or a smaller space in your home or office, the N22 is easy to connect to your Mac or PC with no software to install or settings to change.
See and Hear the Difference
Closing the gap between computer and home audio, all Audioengine speakers and amplifiers share a similar “voicing” and tuning, so that you are assured a matched system no matter which of their products you decide to add to your system. This amp makes sense if you’re looking for more power in a smaller size with affordable price. Connect your iPod, computer, and speakers or headphones for a great-sounding personal stereo system. Even a subwoofer can be added to the system. The Audioengine N22 Premium Desktop Audio Amplifier sets a new level of audio and aesthetic quality and even further closes the gap between computer and home audio. Even if you’re not an audio enthusiast, we guarantee you will still hear a difference and fall in love with it eventually!

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.
Discrete headphone amplifier
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.
Variable line out
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.
Wireless rear speakers
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.
