Unhappy with the sound quality.

Rayman, Amazon
24 August 2014
  • 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. Unless you end up springing extra for the separate stands, it can be something of a hassle to make your own that not only work, but also look halfway decent.

Popping sound occurs during games, movies, youtube and sound goes away

AJ "Ajurdi", Amazon
26 May 2014
  • 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. Ive even tried them on my windows 8 partition and its even worse.Not worth the price and I regret buying them. They're only 2 months old.

Audioengine A2+

Fred, Crutchfield
14 January 2014
  • 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. My cheaper Klipsch computer system created a better sound stage with the vocals clearly identified in the center of the sound stage.
  • Pros: Great detail
  • Cons: poor sound stage

Too many flaws for such a high pricetag

AZ258, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • 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.

Great build quality, Poor sound

William C., Amazon
2 January 2013
  • 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. I put my ear up to the tweets and they were indeed attempting some sound production. Even after letting them burn in for three days, the sound never opened up.

Not a full experience

carvermon, Crutchfield
15 June 2008
  • 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. No amount of repositioning or fiddling with the equalizer allowed me to fill that important part of the stage and ease the disharmony that I experienced. Perhaps proximity was the problem (sitting at the desktop with them), but that is how I will be listening.
