Audioengine's A5+ is a fun, affordable speaker system

  • Excerpt: (1 items) I’ve been a fan of Audioengine’s A5 powered bookshelf speakers ( ) since I first laid ears on them in 2006. They provided plenty of enjoyable sound for their size and, at $350, they were a solid bargain. The company has since released an updated version of the A5 named, appropriately enough, the A5+—or, officially, the A5+ Premium Powered Speakers . They are, in nearly every way, worthy successors to the original.
  • Pros: Punchy sound, Dual inputs, Plenty of volume
  • Cons: Lacks predecessor's built-in AC port, Sound favors bass and lower-mids

  • Summary: The Audioengine 5+ powered speakers deliver excellent sound quality and provide a clutter-free way to listen to smartphones, iPods, or any other audio source.
  • Pros: The Audioengine 5+ powered speakers deliver phenomenal sound and offer simple, attractive styling. They feature two audio inputs and an integrated USB port for charging source devices (phones, iPods). The two speakers can be placed as far apart as needed to optimize stereo separation. A remote for controlling volume is included.
  • Cons: The speakers aren't cheap, and many will find them to be too large and bulky compared with standard PC speakers. The AC power port found in the earlier model is no longer present, and you can't switch between the two inputs--both are always active.
