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.
Great Speakers, but buy them straight from Audioengine Instead

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.
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.
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.
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.
