Audioengine 2

PC Magazine
26 December 2008
  • 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.

  • 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

Review: Audioengine’s A2 speakers

Macenstein
5 November 2007
  • Conclusion: The A2’s are a great choice for those looking for a space-saving home office/bedroom bookshelf system and who do not want to skimp on power. Unfortunately, due to the similarity in looks, the A2’s suffer a bit by the inevitable comparison between their larger siblings, the A5’s.
  • Pros: Great sound, small size, available in both black and white
  • Cons: No extras, such as remote, iPod docks, etc. make these a bit pricey given the competitive speaker market

Audioengine A2 Review

Digitaltrends

  • 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.
  • Pros: High quality finish; compact design; connects to multiple sources
  • Cons: Thick bass can overpower mids & highs unless EQ corrected; a bit pricey

  • Excerpt: Audioengine has recently released the "little brother" of its popular A5 speakers - the A2 Desktop Speakers - and we have today a pair of the Audioengine A2W (White) speakers. They are marketed as the "little brother" because they are smaller, less expensive and deliver less power.
  • Pros: Accurate and clear sound, high-quality construction and design, all needed accessories included.
  • Cons: Relatively limited power, directional sound.

  • Summary: The Audioengine A2 speaker set should be on the short list of anyone who values good musical reproduction over chest-thumping bass.
  • Pros: Accurate music reproduction
  • Cons: Need a subwoofer if you're after tooth-rattling bass for movies and games
