Good Speakers, Static on the line

Michael Kehoe, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought these with the hope that the static from the set of speakers I had (which were not very good), would be eliminated. After a great deal of fiddling with placement of wires, speakers etc. I was not successful. I resorted to a direct connection from my iPhone to the A2+ speakers. Speakers are excellent in this configuration, but the inefficiency of this layout is frustrating.

Suitable for bedroom tv cable and blu ray set up

  • Summary: These little bookshelf speakers are good for what they are. I have connected mine via RCA output from my 37" Vizio tv, which has always had terrible sound. These little A2s dont have a remote control, which is a pain. However for a bedroom tv set up with HD cable box and blu ray player, the sound fills the room very well with no need for subwoofer.

Be prepared for less bass response than expected.

Michael Donnelly, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: First (and this is not part of my rating score), because these are magnetically shielded, the reseller had to ship via ground. No two day delivery for prime. The built-in USB DAC is at 44khz; which is OK but not great compared to other options that are out there. I was looking for a reasonably priced set of speakers with audiophile-level response and range. Sound is pretty good altogether, except at the low end.

Pretty good sound!

BillG, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I think the sound of these little guys is pretty good. Frankly, my expectations were set pretty darn high based on the reviews I read online. First thing I did after connecting to my Macbook Pro was to play a high definition song from HDTracks.com. This is a song I have heard a thousand times and know what is sounds like. The little stands do a great job of pointing the tweeters toward me instead of at my belly. They are near field, around 18-20 inches away.
  • Pros: good near field monitors, nice soundstage.
  • Cons: voice a little nasally, base a little bloated. bass is rolled off but what can you expect from a 4" woofer?
