Audioengine A2+: Excellent PC speakers go digital

CNET
6 December 2013
  • Summary: While they'll cost you $50 more, Audioengine A2+ multimedia speakers improve on an already great product (the A2) with slightly better sound when hooked up to your computer via a new USB connection.
  • Pros: The Audioengine A2+ is compact set of attractively style powered stereo speakers that delivers impressive sound for its size. This new "plus" version adds a digital USB connection, an output for an optional subwoofer to the existing two audio inputs, and a redesigned smaller power connector.
  • Cons: The speakers lack a remote control, the volume control is inconveniently located on the backside, and there's no way to toggle between inputs. The Audioengines are also a bit pricey compared with less refined PC speakers.

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.

Audioengine 2 Speakers

Tech2
17 January 2009
  • Excerpt: It’s the era of the iPod and compressed music; of small speakers that look better than they sound, and of course the gradual diminishing of pure audio applications. While audiophiles have isolated themselves from the consumer market and created a niche of highly expensive but great products, the unassuming casual buyer is more than happy purchasing some flashy device that 'sort of' reproduces sound.

  • 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...

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.

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.

Audioengine A2 Speakers

maximum pc
11 April 2008
  • Excerpt: If you think deploying a subwoofer is a prerequisite to obtaining big-time bass, you haven’t heard Audioengine’s A5 speakers. And if you’re convinced you need huge cabinets for thumping bass, you haven’t heard the company’s new diminutive A2 system. We’ve been using Audioengine’s A5 speakers as our reference point for speaker evaluations for many months—and they’ve been on our Best of the Best list ever since we laid ears on them—so we couldn’t wait to see what the...
  • 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.
