Summary: I concur with and will echo the lone 2 star reviewer here. These certainly are capable of a certain punch - but only at the top and very bottom, leaving what little middle there is muddled and lost somewhere.
Summary: Hate to be a dissenter, but I don't think that the sound reproduction is all that great, especially compared to the purchase price for the product. Like others, I found that the sound does greatly improve, although not enough, when the speaker is tilted up at an angle.
Popping sound occurs during games, movies, youtube and sound goes away

Summary: I have a Mac Pro desktop and wanted to purchase a good pair of speakers. These are very nice looking and deliver great sound, but I can not watch a movie or play a game or let alone watch a full youtube video without the speakers popping and sound is lost.
Summary: Great Detail, and clarity, but no matter how I positioned the speakers I was unable to created a proper sound stage or imaging. Its sounded like I was listening to a very good system in a large arena or stadium.
Summary: These speakers are beautiful and solidly built. However they are tuned to be bass heavy, which is fine if the tweeters produced some highs as well. Unfortunately the tweeters are excessively muted. So much so that I thought they were not connected and that I was just hearing the midbass driver.
Summary: decided to buy into the audioengine a2 after hearing lots of hype. +small size +discreet, understated looks +volume to fill medium sized room +very nice quality build (body, volume knob, connections) -rear volume control -limited low frequency response (lower than stated) -low detail -MUDDY unboxing...
Summary: After reading many of the five star reviews of these speakers I thought that they were for sure some of the best speakers that $200 could buy. Unfortunately, after receiving them, I was quite disappointed. Note: I came from an older Logitech Z-2300 speaker setup (2.1) Pros: They look gorgeous.
Summary: Have had these a couple of months now and have tried them with different sources and in different places to try and get some decent sound out of them. Have given up on them now. Yes they are small and they can go loud but that seems to be it. For me they give too much bass and just don't sound good.
Summary: I'm a little nervous of reviewing these speakers as I seem to be the odd one out - I don't like them. I was looking for a new pair of speakers for my pc to replace my ancient, and cheap, Altec Lansings.
