Audioengine A2+

Fred, Crutchfield
23 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

  • 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.

Audioengine A2

  • Excerpt: The speakers I purchased were advertised as an open box item but when they arrived they looked like they were brand new. I could not tell the box had ever been opened. The problem was when I plugged them in the master speaker was defective. The slave speaker sounded great but there was no sound from the left speaker at all.

Not great

harrisd, Amazon
26 December 2010
  • 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.

Well I thought they were poor

JH "jh27", Amazon
29 July 2010
  • 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. A bought the ALs a few years ago and since then broadband has got faster, the iPlayer has been introduced and I'm now listening to streamed music and watching the iPlayer, so a decent pair of speakers seemed like a good idea.

Ganska dålig

AIMMOTH, Prisjakt
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Uppdaterat: Efter tre år har vänstra pajat. Riktiga datorhögtalare som är snygga och som känns genomgående kvalitativa. Enda negativt skulle vara att det är _för_ mycket bas!
