Quality, but missed on tone

Aaron B. "Aaron B.", Amazon

  • Summary: I have a good ear for music and tone, and value good sound from my speakers. I have been on the search for good desktop computer/multi-media speakers. Do to all the great reviews of the Audioengines, I had to try a pair. I also bought the D1 dac. Audioengine had the right idea creating high end computer speakers, but they missed on the tone.

Great Speakers, but buy them straight from Audioengine Instead

Brad W, Amazon

  • Summary: These speakers do in fact sound better than many larger speakers. I'm pretty much amazed. The only downside is that the ones I bought on amazon did not and I quickly returned them. I setup the ones from amazon, and weren't blown away. They seemed to be lacking in bass. I read the manual and then started noticing things.

Pretty Good, But Not Outstanding

Peter, Amazon
5 November 2012
  • Summary: I was hoping to be blown away by these speakers and unfortunately I wasn't. But they still sound great, especially when played loud. Unfortunately I live in an apartment, so blasting these things full volume doesn't happen much. I wish they provided a fuller sound a low volume, but it's still serviceable. It's definitely an upgrade from my built-in TV speaks.

Great sound, but they overheat

A. Wayne, Amazon
8 September 2010
  • Summary: As many, many reviewers have already said, these speakers sound great to a non-audiophile like myself who just wants a decent, not ridiculously expensive stereo system to play once in a while. Unfortunately, they have a serious heat problem. Playing the speakers at anything over about 20-30 percent of maximum volume (measure by the position of the volume knob) causes the master speaker -- the one with the amplifier -- to heat up.

Sound Good, buttt

nick, Amazon

  • Summary: The sound is quite good, but the tiny remote is a bit of a joke. Its like the ones that come with a aftermarket automotive stereo deck, and mine was done after 4 days. I am going to get them to send me a new one, and I hope it lasts. Also It realy should have a optical audio input for use with a tv.

  • Summary: Grymt bra ljud och spelglädje vid högre volym. Vid låg volym är dock förstärkningen ojämn mellan höger/vänster kanal?! D'feldt var omedvetna om detta problem när jag kontaktade dom men det verkade vara ett generellt problem. Min lösning är att ha låg nivå på signalkällan, trots att det medför sämre signal/brus-förhållande. Då krävs det mer förstärkning på högtalaren vilket ger jämn förstärkning mellan höger/vänster kanal.

  • Summary: Blir tvungen att sänka mitt betyd på dessa högtalare +Ljudmässigt är de suveräna helt otroliga. -Vid låg volym är ljuset obalanserat mellan högtalarna -efter en stunds tystnad knastrar högtalarna till -De håller inte: Efter 3 månader slutade ena högtalarna att fungera Nya högtalarna man fick ifrån inet brummade och susade som de inte ville erkänna som ett fel.
