Summary: I consider the A2+ a real bargain overall. Perfect size footprint, Placement is a snap where ever you plunk them down because of it's front port. In addition, you get a decent 16-bit 48KHz DAC, subwoofer out & can use headphones via the rear input (use monoprice #5612 @ $1.76 2RCA to 3.5mm Female 6" cable) Not bad for $249.99 Plus you get all the cables in the box.
For under 200 bucks, a great value for a well rounded sound.

Summary: I bought this product to replace my old logitech z506 speakers. These speakers, along with my audioengine d1 dac/amp, provide a very well rounded sound. Without a dac or amp, they still provide a fairly strong bass, but with one the bass response is strong with clear treble and mids. Of course there are better speakers, especially for bass, but they are also going to cost about 150 dollars more.
It's not the size of the speaker, but the size of the music coming from the speaker

Summary: These little speakers are AMAZING!!! They provide excellent sound, excellent clarity & good bass. I do have them hooked up to a DAC, but even when I didn't the internal DAC was good enough. I got another DAC for my A5's which allowed me to connect the A2's to the Audioengine D1 DAC. These run great without a DAC from your PC or from headphone jack of your laptop or phone.
Clear sound, no noise, convenient three inputs (USB, RCA, 3.5mm).

Summary: I was looking for a good computer speaker, and finally found a real good one. I normally listen to music at a low level, and don't look for too much bass. I don't want to have huge speakers on my desk so I was looking for a good 2.0 system. First, I bought Bose Companion 3 Multimedia II ($180) from Costco. When not playing anything, they made a shhh noise. I thought it was my computer fans but was surprised that the noise came from Bose(!) speakers.
Summary: I have a speaker on both sides of a long sofa in a living room with vaulted ceilings. I was a little concerned that they'd be too small to fill the room with sound, but I was wrong. They're great! I'm not using them for loud dance parties or anything like that. I'm just using them to casually enjoy some music upstairs in the living room / dining room / kitchen via an Airport Express and Airplay. I'm hearing parts of songs that I've never heard before.
Summary: The set up is this– a lowly pair of aging computer speakers complimented by a nice eight inch 100 W sub woofer, both controlled by an inexpensive but wonderful pre-amp (Gemini 7000). Now just imagine how stunned I was when I needed to lower the sub's crossover from 160 cycles down to 70 maybe 75 -- and the sub's volume almost as low as it would go. What this says is, these little guys have some real bass. And they will definitely crank to surprising volumes.
Summary: A few months ago I purchased these speakers to have higher quality speakers and they rock! They give off a nice full sound, easy set up, and well built. All the cords it came with were long enough for me to move around as needed and not need them right next to a plug. My one slight problem that I've noticed is you need to have it turned up to get the most out of them. If it is low the bass really trails off, but if I turn it up a bit these sound beautiful and amazing.
Summary: The only dislike is the volume control in the speaker rear. Everything else is real good. For this range of price they sound amassing. Small size, elegant design, good construction materials and powerful enough for a standard room size.
Summary: These speakers sound great most of the time, but lack the bass expected at this price point. There is an add-on sub that can be purchased, but it is over $600. These speakers are good on the highs and I would advise you to purchase the speaker stands to reduce vibration.
Summary: The speakers I received were defective. Bass heavy songs caused horrific distortion with speaker flutter at very low volumes (I could get them to stop distorting by blocking the front ports, so I don't think I was over-driving them; but when I hooked them up to my 10" sub they caused it to produce the same fluttering sound, even with the speakers at low volume and the sub also at very low volume so it's definitely not because I was driving the speakers below their cut...
