Simple, Thoughtful Design.

The N22 Desktop Amplifier is easy to connect to any device with no software or driver to install. High-quality 5-way binding posts provide solid connections for your passive speakers. N22 also includes a power port for Audioengine wireless adapters or for charging your phone. You can also connect a subwoofer to the line out for a complete mini music system.

Audioengine Signature Sound

The N22, unlike many amps stuck in a cheap, plastic box, is wrapped in a real wood enclosure and hand-finished just like our speakers. Even if you’re not an audio enthusiast, we guarantee you’ll hear the difference.

Audioengine has been changing the way people listen since 2005. High-quality audio products built with your music in mind. Listen with us, and listen to your music the way it was meant to be heard. Every day.

High-performance Headphone Amp

Connect the N22 to your favourite headphones along with a turntable, computer, music streamer or DAC and start rocking out to incredible sound on your personal mini music system.

Headphone enthusiasts everywhere will appreciate the high-performance, low-noise OPA2134-based amplifier, which was designed to drive a wide range of headphones.

Upstanding Design

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.


USB Power

The Audioengine N22 has a built-in power port for charging portable devices, while listening to your music. The USB connector allows you to charge and power your Smartphone, Tablet, 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.

Simple Operation

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.
