The Audioengine D2 Wireless DAC is an excellent DAC for digital music which supports 24bit/96khz via wireless connection. The wireless DAC works well with any music player software in your computer without additional work to connect. Basically the data is wirelessly transferred from one point to another (sender to receiver) at 2.4GHz.

Similar to its former smaller brother, the Audioengine D1, the D2’s sender unit also supports 2 inputs which are USB and optic fiber. This is convenient enough to use with a computer or any player with optical out.

However in terms of the design, the Audioengine D2 Sender unit has a reversed design when comparing to the USD DAC Aduioengine D1 as the inputs are now gathered on the front of the device. It gives comfort when connecting devices.

Inside the solid design of the Audioengine D2 Sender unit is the controller chip USB 1020B from Texas Instrument which is seen in the high-end DACs. This wireless DAC system is also created with the PCM1792 DAC with super low jitter and high details, promised to ‘wow’ any audiohoic. Besides the 5V DC power input via USB, the Audioengine D2 sender has a 6V power input via the adaptor. Overall, the Audioengine sounds awesome, a plug ‘n play wireless device that does 3 major jobs almost flawlessly – a high-quality USB wireless computer DAC, a wireless USB-to-SPDIF converter, and a wireless optical PCM-to-stereo link.

The receiver supports audio signal via RCA connections or optical output.

After testing via using flac sources, foobar2000 as the player software, and a pair of Audioengine 5+ speakers, the sound result is impressively smooth, detailed, and sounds just great for rock ballads. Highly recommended! Buy here for the best price.
