  • Summary: WEBLOG: While staying at our temporary apartment in Sacramento, California (we’re here shopping for a new home), I badly needed a pair of small desktop speakers for my laptop. After much research online, comparing reviews and assessing the specifications, I ended up with the Audioengine A2‘s.
  • Pros: Attractive looks that oozes quality, great mids and treble, can go down to 60Hz, had auto-sleep function, size vs. performance is among the best
  • Cons: Bass is exaggerated by 6+ dB at around 160~180Hz, volume knob in the back, heavy for their size, no protective grill

  • Summary: * September 2012 * Previously I owned a Logitech 2:1 set up that packed some powerful bass, but after 6 years it was time for something new. I did lots of research on small 2:0 and 2:1 speaker setups that had good audio quality and it was Lunatique's review of them that persuaded me to purchase the...

  • Summary: Hi guys, Now I am not a speaker guy by any means and mostly have crappy stock speakers around here (although I just upgraded my surround speakers for my NAD T747 to some Harmon Kardon 30BQ's) and this will be my first attempt at reviewing speakers.
  • Pros: Incredibly neutral sound with excellent clarity and imaging
  • Cons: None at all from what I've heard thus far

  • Summary: I use these with my Audioengine D1 DAC (which is an excellent value DAC btw) and they really sing. The speakers have beautiful mids and highs for the size and price and although the bass is a bit lacking, it is of high quality. You can pair them with a sub if you want down the road.
  • Pros: Great mids and treble. Bass is surprisingly good. Fair price. Great build quality, really solid.
  • Cons: Could be a bit cheaper.

  • Conclusion: The audioengine A2 speakers are a powerful 2.0 audio option for casual, office and home theater use. The bass is powerful while the overall sound quality is robust and statistically close to ideal.

  • Excerpt: If you think a 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 at least need cabinets as big as those of the A5, you haven’t heard the diminutive Audioengine A2.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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
