Summary: These are simply the best speakers at this price range. The bamboo looks fantastic but isn't necessary for good sound quality so save the money unless you really want the aesthetic. For those who are looking for bass: These have excellent, even bass reproduction from 58 Hz and up.
Summary: Very compact desktop speakers, The sound is very clear with good imaging. The bamboo looks very elegant and the sound is fairly rich but I did add a Sub which rounded this out nicely. Great set up for smaller listening area.
WAY better than one might expect for $250 speakers

Summary: These speakers are great. These speakers, paired with the NAD 7050 and a set of Mediabridge ULTRA Series Speaker Cables yield a great system for a very, very reasonable price, < $1300. I'm very happy with this system.
Summary: I have owned these for 2 years now. Last night I was really struck by how wonderful they sound I decided to write this review. The separation and soundstage these deliver is wonderful. They are great for computer applications.
Summary: Maybe a couple hundred or so hours playing - Although I don't have any other small speakers to compare these to, these are better than I expected in sound and looks. Takes such a small space - just what I was looking for, for my new added micro system. Seems good quality.
Summary: Love everything about these. They look great and sound even better than what I've used before. I used to be a big metal head but getting these, just because they're so good at reproducing sounds, I've picked up jazz and classical and it's just...orgasms in my ear.
Really great speaker, particularly for this price!

Summary: There are lots of pro reviews out there for these speakers, and I have to agree with the majority of them. These speakers are a huge bargan at $325. Crisp highs without being harsh Warm midrange Good bass for this size bookshelf speaker That said, if you really like to kick some bass filled music...
Summary: Exceptional sound quality. Weak on the lows. Paired with Polk Audio PSW10 10-Inch Powered Subwoofer. Together they make the perfect system: powerful, clear, warm, and bodied. I you'll be hard pressed to find a better system for the cost.
Summary: I'm sure I have just average ears, if not worse than average. But for me, these speakers are the bomb. I'm using them with a new turntable to play 20 year old records and I'm hearing audio that I didn't hear "back in the day." I'm convinced that the Audioengine's play no small part.
