  • Summary: What can I say that will sum up how amazing these speakers are.From the moment you unpackage them to see them wrapped in the microfiber drawstring bag to the outstanding build quality of the speakers and all included components,Outstanding just scratches the surface.Hook up was easy and from the moment they were turned on I knew I had purchased the right speakers for me.I have no idea why they have a sub output on the back, you will never need it, they have more than...

Porcupine Tree sounds Awesome thru these

George R, Crutchfield
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I am using these for a laptop ,I replaced my Bose with these and I could not be happier. I am very picky when it comes to sound and these speakers reproduce sounds like speakers costing hundreds more. I truly am in heaven when I listen to these. I added the D1 Dac and what a difference it made over the lame sound card that came with my computer. I'm so glad I picked these up. Money well spent IMHO.
  • Pros: 50 watts a channel , clean sound ,
  • Cons: none I can tell

Surprisingly good

Chuck, Crutchfield
2 May 2013
  • Summary: We have had stereo speakers in three rooms of our house for many years. I was never satisfied with the speakers in one room, and I bought these to replace the speakers in that room. Before setting up these speakers in that room, I set them up next to my best speakers, in another room, for comparison. This other room is where I do most of my listening, so naturally it has the best speakers.
  • Pros: Surprisingly good for a pair of bookshelf-size speakers without a subwoofer. I expected to need a subwoofer with these but found that I do not. The angular dispersion of the tweeters is also surprisingly good. My room is 24 ft square, and these speakers fill it quite well. Distortion is quite low throughout the audio spectrum.
  • Cons: I'm thinking.... It's hard to find fault with these speakers.

2.0 and the bass

DaveD, Crutchfield
26 April 2013
  • Summary: Paired the A5+ with the AD-1 DAC from Audioengine. Great sound throughout the spectrum, solid punchy bass, nice soundstage and good clarity up top. Really wanted to get away from the sub at my feet and the A5's really provide all the bass I could ask for, sometimes requiring a little equalization to dial back bass a touch when playing loud (and they will) though I am waiting to really dial them in until broken in. Still outstanding sound, right out of the box.
  • Pros: Great sound top to bottom, plenty of bass no sub, great soundstage, easy install with the AD-1DAC
  • Cons: Be nice if they were smaller, but not the sound!

  • Summary: Overall great speakers. I have them hooked up to my iMac and they sound great. Bass is clean, which makes me reconsider whether I need to get the subwoofer, but I will probably end up buying that as well. My music is crisp and clear. Overall, I recommend buying these speakers if you have the money.
  • Pros: Great sound and very powerful!
  • Cons: Price, but I'm a firm believer that generally you get what you pay for.
