Griffin Twenty Digital Audio Amplifier Review

Twenty is an interesting name for an audio product, but once it’s known that Twenty provides 20 watts of power per channel, its name immediately makes sense. Griffin originally released Twenty when Apple’s AirPort Express was popular and tech products with rounded edges were all the rage. Slide into 2015 and Griffin has redesigned Twenty to be a centerpiece for Bluetooth home entertainment. 2015’s Twenty has sturdy metal speaker terminals, a weighted aluminum volume knob, and a modern design that will fit in with any home’s decor. Twenty’s latest incarnation also supports AAC and aptX Bluetooth codecs, while retaining an optical input and subwoofer out from its past form. Twenty is ready to transform your current audio setup into a stylish masterpiece.

Special thanks to Griffin for providing us with the Twenty Digital Audio Amplifier to review.
