The W3R Add-on Receiver is an expansion kit for your W3 Wireless Audio Adapter. You can add up to 2 W3R add-on Receivers for a total of 3 zones. It connects wirelessly to your existing W3 setup, and can output great sounding audio to any product with mini-jack or RCA audio connectors. Add sound to an additional room, or even make your Audioengine S8 Powered Subwoofer wireless.
The W3 is based on a proprietary wi-fi technology that uses the same frequency bands as 802.11.
Yes, each Sender/Receiver W3 pair transmits 16-bit stereo audio.
Yes, both wireless adapters transmit any audio file format with no compression or loss.
The W3 is a USB Plug-and-Play audio device. which means that the drivers it uses are developed and provided by the developer of your computer's operating system. Because of this, you shouldn't need to download or upgrade any drivers to use your W3.
Yes, each Sender/Receiver W3 pair transmits uncompressed stereo audio from a computer or any analog audio output.
Sure. Connect the W3 Sender to the subwoofer outputs on your A/V receiver and then connect the W3 Receiver to the audio inputs on your subwoofer. There are stereo 1/8" mini-jack inputs and outputs on the W3 that will allow you to make an RCA connection with the use of a Y-cable (which is included).
To do this you would use multiple sets of the W3 to send wireless music throughout your house. We have customers that daisy-chain the W3 (and W2) together from the output of one audio system - your stereo or our powered speakers in the living room, for example - to another system in another part of the house such as a Bose Wave radio in the kitchen. This way you can either control audio from their computers or iPods, or even without a computer from any other audio gear depending on how you connect the W3 Senders and Receivers.
The W3 can transmit to up to 3 receivers simultaneously.
The W3 latency is under 20ms so it's perfect for using with video - home theater surround or basic 2-channel audio. Can I use the W3 for my podcasting studio? I want a wireless mic to my computer's audio input? Sure, this is a great application for the W3. You can use the W3 to replace any RCA or mini-jack cable, with or without a computer!
Yes! As long as it can provide at least 250mA, any USB power supply or smartphone / tablet charger should work just fine to power the W3 Sender or Receiver.
