Questions & Answers

  • Question:

    Can I connect a subwoofer to the N22?

    Answer:

    Yes, simply connect the full-range output of the N22 into your sub's line-level input. The sub and speaker volume can be controlled together by the N22 volume control.

  • Question:

    Can I leave the N22 power on all the time?

    Answer:

    Sure, the N22 has a power-saving idle mode that activates after you stop playing music. If I plug in headphones will the N22 mute my music playing through the speakers? Yes, plugging in headphones will bypass the speaker output so audio will play through your headphones only.

  • Question:

    Will my low impedance (low Z) Grado headphones work with N22?

    Answer:

    Yes, the N22 will work well with headphones or earphones with an impedance from 16 to 300 ohms.

  • Question:

    What type of speakers work best with the N22 amplifier?

    Answer:

    The N22 is an efficient design and works great with any 4, 6, or 8 ohm passive speakers, including the Audioengine P4!

  • Question:

    Can I take my Audioengine N22 to another country with a different voltage?

    Answer:

    Yes, the N22 uses an external switching power supply so it will automatically convert to a different voltage when plugged in. The power cable is also detachable which makes it convenient to replace the AC plug with a different type if you don't want to use an adapter plug.

  • Question:

    If I plug in headphones will the N22 mute my music playing through the speakers?

    Answer:

    Yes, plugging in headphones will bypass the speaker output so audio will play through your headphones only.

  • Question:

    Can I increase the length or change the speaker wire between the N22 and each speaker?

    Answer:

    Sure. We've included two 5-foot, 16-gauge speaker wires with the N22 but any "stranded" speaker wire will work. The standard-size speaker binding posts on the back of the amp will accept bare stranded wire, however if you want to terminate the wires we recommend using spade or pin-type terminals.

  • Question:

    Is it possible to use the N22 amp to power the rear channels of my surround system?

    Answer:

    Yes, the N22 amp + P4 passive speakers + W1 or W3 wireless stereo adapter will make a great-sounding wireless rear channel setup.

  • Question:

    Is it OK to remove the stand attached to the N22 and place the amp on it's side?

    Answer:

    The N22 needs to be kept upright with the stand attached for proper cooling.

  • Question:

    When I connect a turntable to my N22, why is the volume is extremely low?

    Answer:

    Some turntables may not have a built-in preamp and you would need to add an external phono preamp to bring the instrument level signal of the turntable to line-level. Some turntables may have a built-in preamp but have a switch on the back for either "line" or "phono," such as the Music Hall USB-1 or the Audio Technica AT-LP120; the switch would need to be selected to "line" in order to work directly with the speakers.

"The sound was extremely open and pure, so the N22’s headphone sound is another reason to consider this little amp."
