Excerpt: I was upgrading from a small cheap pair of speakers, and looking for something that had some solid bass without sounding boxy. The AugioEngine's are fantastic. They sound great, full of bass and very clear and crisp. Powerful too. Very happy with them. My set up is somewhat odd.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Excellent quality and sound - i think best speakers in this category.

Summary: Bought these for my office as an upgrade to the a set of Bose Companion 20 playing music from my pc - definitely like the upgrade. The Bose we pretty decent but the A5+ are even better - more musical and lot more base.
Excerpt: Don't think any more. You will love these speakers. Thats the bottom line. I was wondering if I should get the a2 or the a5 and I couldn't be happier with the a5. These are also great because you can upgrade in the future with the addition of the subwoofer and the audio dac.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: Purchasing a new iMac meant having to upgrade my ancient Dell computer speakers so music listening could be appreciated. There are many options out there, for sure; but I am coming from a listening experience that left nothing to chance, I needed something that was "fulfilling.
Pros: Attractive Design, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality, Impreessive, Impressive
Excerpt: It the sound is great. The built quality is superb, I got them in glossy white and they look amazing. Love the fact that speaker wire is used to connect the two speakers, a nice touch from audioengine.
Summary: I used these to set up an AirPlay station in my living room. I am extremely pleased with the result. I also took advantage of the scratch and dent option, and my speakers seem to be in perfect condition. I do agree with another reviewer that grill covers would be nice.
Pros: Sound quality, size, bamboo cabinet, no need for an amplifier
Cons: Sound quality sensitive to placement, utilitarian or high-tech look of uncovered speakers
