  • Excerpt: I use these to listen to digital music through iTunes and GarageBand.Sound is good, clear. Pretty good volume. Decent bass for such small speakers. quality constructionFor this price you should have a headphone jack plugin and some equalizer controls to assist in compensating for speaker placement.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Lack Of Basstrebbal Ctr

Not quite

Gadget Junkie, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm really confused by all these 5 star reviews. I had high hopes for these and love the way they look. I've heard the A5s and loved those, but they were too big for my desktop, so I thought these would be a smaller but have somewhat of a similar sound.

Great sound but needs better build quality/durability

  • Summary: Fanstatic sound for little dollars. Unfortuanely they last about 5 years then amp goes. Got lucky and bought a single powered speaker to replace speaker whose amp went. Only one speaker is powered. The other speaker is passive connected to powered speaker w/ speaker cable.

Very good speakers

LThomas, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: These speakers are very good and reproduce sound beautifully with clear highs and lows. I would have given it a 4.5, except for Audioengines policies that are customer un-friendly, bordering on daylight robbery. These speakers cost me $249, so they are NOT cheap.

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.

Highly Unbalanced

S. Pathak "Reluctant Consumer", Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: These speakers sound great if you have equalization control, without it, though, they are low-heavy and imprecise. I use a pair on a Hackintosh running 10.7.2. Considering most of my Audio/Visual consumption on this machine happens in iTunes (where I have eq control), they sound great when you...

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.

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.

The Good and Bad

Rebel at Heart "Dean", Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: Good: The mid-high range has a very nice sound quality, exceptional, uncolored clarity. Build quality is excellent, as is attention to detail. It has RCA outputs, which you will need for a sub-woofer. BAD: You WILL, I repeat WILL need a sub-woofer. Also, given that fact, I consider them overpriced.
