Questions & Answers

  • Question:

    How easy is it to set up HD3?

    Answer:

    HD3 is an all-in-one system with no extra components needed except your phone or computer. Simply place the speakers where you want them and connect the power supply. Hook up the included speaker wire from the powered left speaker to the right passive speaker. Then connect your music with the supplied cables - or go wireless - and that's it.

  • Question:

    Can I connect multiple sources to the HD3? Can I stream via Bluetooth and use the USB input at the same time?

    Answer:

    You should be able to use multiple sources with the HD3s just fine. The analog inputs on the HD3 are always active. They will play at the same time as the Bluetooth or USB input. Bluetooth and USB share the DAC though, so you can only listen to one at a time, and Bluetooth takes priority. If you're using USB for example, and start using Bluetooth, USB will mute and Bluetooth will take over. If you pause or disconnect from Bluetooth the speakers will automatically switch back to USB after a few seconds.

  • Question:

    Can you stream music wirelessly to the HD3 with the Audioengine wireless adapters instead of Bluetooth?

    Answer:

    Yes, an AC wall outlet near the HD3 is all you need to power the W3 or D2 wireless receiver. Simple.

  • Question:

    How do I connect the active and passive speakers together?

    Answer:

    The HD3 includes a speaker wire with banana plugs on either end, so using them with the speakers should be a simple set up. The binding posts on the back of each speaker would need to be screwed down and the plugs would need to be inserted into the center hole (please refer to the picture for reference). You would need to make sure that each end matches with the color on the corresponding binding post; for example, if you inserted the red banana plug into the red binding post on one speaker, the same would follow suit for the other speaker. The spring style banana plugs provided with the HD3s may look like they won't fit, but they will actually compress to fit into the posts on the speakers, so some amount of effort will be needed to insert them.

  • Question:

    Does HD3 come with speaker grills?

    Answer:

    The HD3 speakers do include detachable magnetic grills. The grills have thin rubber pads to prevent marks or damage to the finish or the cabinet, so your HD3s will keep looking great even if you like to remove / replace them frequently!

  • Question:

    Can I use the HD3 with my iPad or iPhone via USB to bypass the internal DAC and get better sound?

    Answer:

    Absolutely! This is especially useful for connecting wired with newer iPhones that do not have a headphone jack output. You will need to pick up the USB Camera Adapter from Apple, which allows a USB connection to the iPad (and, as of iOS7, the iPhone). Then just hook up as you would from a computer. If you'd like to be able to charge your iPhone or iPad while you use them like this, you can use the USB 3 version of Apple's USB camera adapter, which also allows passthrough charging at the same time.

  • Question:

    Can I use the HD3 with other tablets or smartphones like Samsung Galaxy or Microsoft Surface?

    Answer:

    Absolutely! This is especially useful for connecting wired with newer Smartphones that do not have a headphone jack output. You'll need the correct USB-A adapter cable to connect from your tablet to the USB input on the HD3. These are generally available from the manufacturer of your tablet/smartphone, local electronic stores, or even online retailers.

  • Question:

    Should I use the volume control on the front of the HD3s or can I adjust from system volume on my computer?

    Answer:

    If the left speaker is in an easy to reach location, you can certainly use the physical knob to set volume. If not though, you can set the HD3 at a fixed volume and adjust from your source device. Around 50% is a good starting point, but you'll need to experiment to find what setting works best to give you a good overall volume, and a smooth ramp up.

  • Question:

    Can I take my Audioengine HD3 speakers to another country with a different voltage?

    Answer:

    Yes, you can. The HD3 speakers use a switching power supply so it will automatically convert to the different voltage. 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:

    Can I use an inverter with my HD3 speakers?

    Answer:

    Sure, for HD3 you will need an inverter that can supply about 50-60 watts.

  • Question:

    Is it possible to have simultaneous connections to the HD3?

    Answer:

    Yes, there are multiple audio inputs on Audioengine powered speakers and both inputs are "open" or active so you can leave your audio sources connected at the same time.

  • Question:

    Can I use a subwoofer with Audioengine speakers?

    Answer:

    Audioengine speakers have a low end which will easily fill a room and rival floor standing speakers many times their size, but you can also connect a subwoofer (or connect Audioengine speakers to your sub's line-level output). You can add our W3 wireless adapter for a wireless subwoofer! It's also worth noting that the HD3 includes a bass cut switch, to help them blend even better with an external subwoofer.

  • Question:

    When using the USB input of the HD3, what sample rate and bit depth should I set my system to?

    Answer:

    The HD3's USB interface handles up to 16-bit, and sample rates up to 48kHz, though the bit-depth will be padded internally to 24-bit. Your system will generally default to these settings when you hook up the HD3. If you mainly use 44.1K files, you might set this as the default in your system to ensure minimal sample-rate conversions. Many system players like JRiver and Amarra will default to the proper sample rate automatically.

  • Question:

    The sound quality of my computer's headphone jack isn't very good but I want to connect my Audioengine speakers. What do I do?

    Answer:

    Some computer headphone outputs have poor audio quality, so if this is your computer, try connecting from the USB port to your with HD3 or connect wirelessly via Bluetooth.

  • Question:

    The HD3 has a built in USB digital-to-analog converter (DAC), but can I also use a different DAC?

    Answer:

    While the DAC in the HD3 is better than what what is built into most computers, adding a 24-bit DAC, such as our D1 or D3, would still be a benefit to audio quality.

  • Question:

    If I connect my turntable to the HD3 will it be necessary to purchase a phono preamp or can I simply connect the turntable directly to the HD3 input?

    Answer:

    Some turntables will need a preamp before being connected and others may have one built-in. Check the turntable manufacturer’s website or user manual.

  • Question:

    Why can I only output up to 16-bit on my computer when using the HD3s via USB?

    Answer:

    This is normal. The HD3's USB interface can only accept a 16-bit format; however, the HD3's DAC will automatically pad the bit depth to 24-bit internally during playback, for lower noise and better dynamic range.

  • Question:

    When I connect a turntable to my HD3, why is the volume extremely low?

    Answer:

    Some turntables do not have a built-in preamps and as a result you will need to add an external phono preamp between your turntable and HD3. Many turntables, however, (such as the Music Hall USB-1 or Audio Technica AT-LP120) have a built-in preamp and include a switch on the back for "line" or “phono”. For Audioengine powered speakers select "line".
