Excerpt: There are computer speakers and there are "real" speakers. These are "real" speakers for your computer. Heavy cables. Quality hardware. Superb packaging. You can tell you have bought something of great quality just from the experience of opening the box, unwrapping them, and setting them up.
Summary: I enjoy Hi-Fi Audio quite a bit I do own mostly Dynaudio / Roksan integrated... anyway, the purpose of this review is not to compare the Audioengine A2+ but give you my honest opinion from an audiophile standpoint.
Summary: I delayed buying because of the reviews talking about lack of bass -- very happy I bought them. The bass is quite good. Sure, it's not going to hit you in the chest like big drivers, but you can't expect that from small speakers. What you do get is good, solid bass and clean, clear sound.
Summary: I set these up on my desk top and plugged them into my PC's Xonar STX card. <br /> <br />The clarity and punch were immediatley obvious! These little guys sound terrific, actually <br /> <br />better than my Sennheiser headphones.
Pros: Great clarity. Mids and highs are superb.
A little pricey but well worth it. These are not your
typical PC speakers and are great for playing high bitrate
flac files and concert DVD's on the pc.
Summary: I bought these to listen to music rather quietly in my office (didn't want to disturb anyone else) . At low volumes, they were muddy sounding. Song lyrics didn't even sound as clear as with the little speakers in my iMac; the upper and middle frequencies were just not there.
Pros: Great sound at higher volumes
Cons: Muddy sound at lower volumes, no speaker grills or other protection for cones
