Great at higher volume, poor at low volume

Snouter, Crutchfield
28 October 2015
  • Summary: I bought these to listen to music rather quietly in my office (didn't want to disturb anyone else) . At low volumes, they were muddy sounding. Song lyrics didn't even sound as clear as with the little speakers in my iMac; the upper and middle frequencies were just not there.
  • Pros: Great sound at higher volumes
  • Cons: Muddy sound at lower volumes, no speaker grills or other protection for cones

Bittersweet

Lucky13, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Purchasing these speakers without researching them on the internet proved to be a valuable lesson. These were purchased as an anniversary gift and I hated having to send them back, but had I done the research beforehand I would have learned that there are numerous complaints that the A2+ speakers...

In my opinion the Kipsch sound better. The Klipsch fill up a room

Good but not THAT good

Charles Platt, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: Don't be misled by reviews claiming "absolutely fantastic" performance. These speakers are good for their size, but, they are small speakers, with typical associated problems. The low frequencies are limited and boxy, just as you would expect.

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.

Suitable for bedroom tv cable and blu ray set up

Eliana Fu, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • 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.

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.

Exceptional speakers if you don't care about BASS at all

Aaron Y Chung, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: On paper, these seemed like the perfect speakers for me. The A2's always had rave reviews and the newly added built in USB DAC is a very nice update. I ordered these right away and was fairly certain these would be keepers due to all the great reviews. Well, that wasn't the case.
