Incredible

  • Excerpt: These speakers are amazing! The bamboo finish makes them look so incredible, I'm really glad I spent the extra dollars to get this finish. The sound on the A5+'s is out of this world. While these aren't considered studio speakers the sound that they produce is crystal clear and is literally like hearing angels sing. You have not experienced your music and audio till you hear them on these speakers. The only down side of these speakers is of course the size.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Large, Weak Bass

  • Summary: Very well made and easy to use. Good tone and solid bass. The reason I didn't give five stars is the mids mainly vocals are the only weak point of these speakers.
  • Pros: Superb fit & finish, surprising good tone. Remote
  • Cons: Don't like the rolling volume knob as you don't know what level the gain is. Only sound flaw I hear is in the vocals if there's a loud bass part playing at the same time it seems the bass compromises the clarity of the vocal onlt on certain songs though like Steve Stills " Johnny's Garden" .

Stylish and practical

KenD, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I would give this 4.5 stars if that was an option. These speakers put out nice audio at moderate to louder volumes, they are fair at lower sound levels such as for background unless you are going to put them in a bigger room. I'm using them in my bedroom for my Lynx radio. The bass response at lower volume levels is moderate, likely to be improved with the optional subwoofer.
  • Pros: Very good sound with good bass at medium to loud volumes for this size of speaker. Stylish high quality cabinet and workmanship. With a subwoofer, I'd likely give this product a 5.
  • Cons: No grill to hide the exposed elements. Poor sound at lower levels due to no sub-woofer (which can be added as an optional wireless accessory). A bit large for a desktop (computer speaker).

Outstanding sound and money well spent!

  • Summary: Out of the box, these speakers impress with their weight and quality of construction. Extremely easy to set up and I was listening to music in 10 minutes. I spaced them about 5 feet apart and toed in to the listening position. These speakers offer so many ways to listen to your music. I used line inputs, connected to the out of my Carver pre-amp. The sound is warm well defined and the speakers could resolve even the most complex choral works, that I auditioned.
  • Pros: Great connectivity options, clear defined and musical sounding, great build and quality is noticeable. Great sound stage!!. All music styles tend to sparkle with these speakers
  • Cons: I did not like the volume control, I would have preferred one with limits, not one that keeps turning. No headphone jack on the front of these speakers

PC Use Problem

Ron, Crutchfield
1 April 2013
  • Summary: I connected the A5 with Autoengine D1 DAC to my PC. Works fine when playing only CDs in my PC. However if I use PC programs at the same time it causes an interruption in the music like a skip or noise when I click on the mouse.
