Summary: At this point anyone reading a review for the A5+ has a fair idea as to their reputation, and for the most part it lives up to it. These speakers pack a fairly steady punch. They are simple in design, but not in any way a fault, and their sound can handle even the most dynamic film or game...
Pros: Simple Design
Power Save/Sleep Mode
Mid-to-Low End Sound
Handles Dynamic Sounds Easily
Extremely Easy Setup
Cons: Not as clear highs as I would have liked, but this is very subjective.
Book Shelf (duh) Size, so bigger than I'm use to, but again, subjective.
Summary: Great sounding set of speakers. Like other's have said, they have a fairly flat response, but that's what I'm looking for. The only reason a star is lost is that due to the powered nature of these speakers, the left and right can't be switched.
Pros: Sounds exactly as described by other reviewers...flat response.
Cons: Need a separate adapter to switch left and right channels.
Summary: I've had about a month or so with the pair. Previously, I'm more of a headphone guy. Although it is designed for near field listening, the pair is loud enough to make my whole studio room dance. A bit too big on the desk to use with the computer but I can live with that.
Summary: They call these "computer" or "desktop" speakers. They're audiophile-quality speakers with excellent tonality, surprising power and bass and beautiful bamboo cases. <br /> <br />My hi-fi now consists exclusively of a WD My Cloud NAS (3 TB) with ALAC and FLAC recordings, my A5+ speakers, an AirPort...
Cons: Bass is surprisingly good from the 5" driver, Bottom end ceases at 50Hz, so a subwoofer is needed for the lowest lows. Power switch is in awkward place. USB is charger only vs charger and audio. Would like sleep function to wake from signal.
Summary: I purchased these as an upgrade for a computer used specifically for listening and recording music. The music quality is superb. I was under the impression that I would also purchase the sub, but I am not so sure I need it, as the bass from these is more than I imagined it would be.
Pros: clean beautiful speakers, sound quality, usb port, remote
