AudioEngine A2 Speakers: Mighty Small, Mighty Sound

Digital Home Thoughts
31 August 2009
  • Excerpt: This is a Quick Look of AudioEngine's latest set of speakers the A2's . I've previously reviewed the "big brother" of these speakers, the A5's, and I was extremely impressed with them. Would these smaller speakers deliver the same calibre of sound as the bigger and more expensive A5's? The A5's are sold for $349 USD, while these A2's are sold for $199 USD - a significant difference.

  • Excerpt: I’ve never given much of a fig either way about computer speakers. Oh, I know the gamers treasure a rumblin’, tumblin’, stumblin’ sound system, all the better to capture the Birth of the Universe when Gonthrax the Inevitable pounds the Sacred Hammer of Flangedoodle . . . sigh. Besides, real gaming has moved on to consoles integrated into home-theater surround-sound systems, and the humble compact stereo speaker has been relegated to the back seat of audiodom, where it...

Audioengine 2

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: Audiophiles looking to amp up their PC sound should look no further than the Audioengine 2, but bass buffs should look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Accurate, pristine audio performance. Full-bodied but not overpowering bass. Handles high volumes well. Attractive design.
  • Cons: Large footprint. Not for those who seek subwoofer rumble. No remote or extra features.

Expert Review

Silent PC
29 May 2008
  • Summary: There's little doubt that the Audioengine A2 is a gem. Its tiny size, appealing simple looks and operation, and well-thought out details exude an impressive level of quality. The real reward is when they're plugged in and the music turned on. It's hard to believe so much good sounding music can come from such wee speakers.
  • Pros: Great sound, Tiny size, Built-in amps, Attractive cosmetics, Modest price
  • Cons: *, Supplied speaker wire a bit short, Power supply has low power factor, Can't wait to try the new stands, Not wireless

Audioengine A2 review

Techworld
9 May 2008
  • Summary: The Audioengine A2 speaker set should be on the short list of anyone who values good musical reproduction over chest-thumping bass. If you're not sure into which camp you fall, you can order directly from the company, audition the A2s for up to 30 days, and return them for a refund if you're dissatisfied.

  • Summary: While an all-around solid system, the A2’s volume control would be much handier if it were located on the front of the cabinet, and we miss the convenient USB charging port that the A5 boasts. But we have no complaints with the A2’s sound—it rocks, delivering spectacular sound with a wide variety of tunes. These speakers don’t get as loud as some larger systems we’ve auditioned lately, but that’s the only thing that holds us back from giving them a Kick Ass award.
  • Pros: Amazing sound in a tiny form-factor. No subwoofer necessary.
  • Cons: Lacks the front-mounted volume control and USB port charger of the A5.

  • Excerpt: “When the folks at Audioengine offered to send me their new A2 powered speaker system for review I have to admit that I hesitated for a couple of days in saying yes. In photos the A2’s looked very similar to the company’s larger, more expensive speaker system, the A5, which I had already reviewed (and ended up buying). How different were they going to be?

  • Summary: That’s a nice touch, but we’d rather have a volume control on the front of the cabinet; we also miss the handy USB charging port that the A5 boasts. But we have no complaints with the A2’s sound—these little puppies rock, delivering spectacular sound with a wide variety of tunes. They don’t get as loud as some larger systems we’ve auditioned lately, but they’re easily the speakers to beat at this price point.
  • Pros: Amazing low-end frequency response from very small boxes; Kevlar woofers and silk drivers; MDF cabinets.
  • Cons: Lacks two of the best features found on the Audioengine A5; amp is adequate only for near-field listening or small rooms.
