Audioengine A5+ Powered Speakers Review

maximum pc
3 October 2012
  • Summary: We had an equally exciting experience with games: The A5+ delivers tight, gut-punching bass response as we played Max Payne 3 , even without a subwoofer (although Audioengine now offers one that you can add to the mix). You’ll need plenty of room atop your desk to accommodate these speakers, but they’re perfect for power users.
  • Pros: Superb sound; great convenience features.
  • Cons: Large cabinets take up a lot of desktop space.

Audioengine A5 Speaker System

maximum pc
22 May 2007
  • Summary: These speakers aren’t quite as tight as M-Audio’s discontinued Studiophile LX4 system, and we wouldn’t rely on them as studio monitors, but they’re great for less-critical—and more common—missions. UPDATED 2/8/2008: While referencing this review for an upcoming review of the Audioengine A2, we noticed that the online review had the incorrect verdict (a "9" versus a "9 Kick Ass").
  • Pros: Incredible sound from small packages; built-in USB charger for your MP3 player; AC-outlet in back for a wireless audio streaming box.
  • Cons: They're a bit large for a crowded desktop.

Review: Audioengine 5 Speakers

Macenstein
7 June 2006
  • Conclusion: Audioengine claims its A5 speakers are “the best sounding and most versatile powered speakers at any priceâ€? and I am hard pressed to argue the point. This is one of the rare reviews where not only am I not going to complain about the A5’s price, but I actually think we may be getting a bargain here. There is an overall feeling of quality in the fit and finish of the Audioengine 5’s that is truly unique in the “white plastic wastelandâ€?
  • Pros: The highest quality sound you can get from your iPod, works great with AirPort Express/AirTunes, solidly built, all cables included, black version coming soon
  • Cons: If you want a remote you’ll need to fork out another $40 for a Universal Dock.

Playlist Audioengine A5

Macworld
17 March 2006
  • Excerpt: (1 items) With the release of Apple’s iPod Hi-Fi , we have a better notion of what Apple considers to be a reasonable price for a higher-end portable powered music system — $350. Priced higher than other speaker systems such as the Bose Sounddock ($300) and Altec Lansing’s inMotion iM7 ($250), the iPod Hi-Fi pumps out richer (and louder) sound than these products. But what can you get for the same price as the iPod Hi-Fi?
  • Pros: Great sound at a reasonable price, Loud without distortion, Power and audio jacks on back for AirPort Express, Lots of included cables and wire
  • Cons: No dock-connector cradle for iPhones and iPods
