Love these speakers -- worth every penny

Summary: Absolutely outstanding sound. Before buying I read almost every review here on Amazon, and I agree with "the consensus." These are not "computer speakers" but I use them that way, to my daily delight. The bass is tight and sufficient. Sweet midrange.
Summary: I'll leave it to the audiophiles to explain all of the specs for you. I would prefer to give the speakers a 4.5/5 but its not allowed. The speakers look great and most importantly sound great. My only gripes are the supplied cables.
Summary: The only reason this doesn't have 5 stars is because my A5's have died on me, twice now. They originally lasted 2 years before getting a harsh crumbling sound from the speakers. They deemed them not repairable and sent me a new pair free of charge(after I had to pay for return shipping).
Summary: These are great speakers (for me). I'm not an audiophile, but I appreciate being able to listen to a variety of music and not have to constantly adjust. At times I do use an equalizer to tone down the base.
Summary: I love the speakers. I wish I had bought them years ago. It's one of those things like when you first switch to HD from SD TV - you don't think it would make a difference but it does. I mean, it's just a TV show, how important could the picture quality be?
Summary: I'm an audiophile with a 5-figure dedicated 2-channel stereo system in the living room. I bought these for my A/V system, partly to reduce clutter. These are nowhere near audiophile quality (sorry, AudioEngine, but that's pure marketing hype, i.e.
Summary: I purchased these a few weeks ago and auditioned them for about a week and a half before returning them due to a defective RCA input connection, so my review is based off of the 1/8" headphone input which isn't my preference, but that's what I had. Setup was fairly straightforward.
Summary: I love the sound, the high's and low's are absolutely professional grade. Quality is good too and contents inside the box were nice (nice speaker sleave/bag, to mini jacks and audio cables). My biggest complaint about the speaker is the VERY POOR built in amp cooling system.
