I have owned a fair bit of hifi over the years, plenty of naim, rega, atc, pmc, chord and unfortunately cyrus have been recruited to allow the neighbours to share my love of music. However i am not sure i have yet experienced such pound for pound value as i have with these units. When properly positioned they boast great detail, fast and accurate lower frequencies and a range of connectivity that should allow most users to easily provide a source device. Build quality is very impressive for the price also. Thoroughly recommended, and i believe you would be hard pushed to find a better separate amplifer, speaker and interconnect solution for the same price. A great product in my opinion.
Extremely good bookshelf/desk top speakers with built-in amplifier. I use these to listen to hires music from my laptop when ‘on the road’ and they produce an impressive full sound. Due to their solid build quality and built-in amplifier, they are not light to carry but when fed a good signal (via an audioengine d1 dac in my case) they sound almost as good as our much more expensive and bulkier hifi speakers. I have played everything from harp solos, full orchestral, prog rock, female vocals and blu-ray soundtracks through them, all with stunning clarity and good extended bass response (don’t expect the ultra-low bass of a sub-woofer). They are supplied with a good length of reasonable quality 2-channel speaker cable so positioning for a good stereo soundstage is not a problem. Very highly recommended especially if you can purchase for under £200 (i would have prefered the bamboo finish but that was £100 more at the time of purchase, so i chose the white).

These bad boys pump out pitch perfect, beautiful sound. Yes, you’ll feel the bass in your chest, but there’s more to great sound than that. Every note will resonate, crystal clear. When i splashed out and spent a fortune on speakers, i had high expectations.
Wanted next day delivery and late sunday afternoon arrived unpackaged and working in 10 minutes. Full sound test will have to wait until breaking in hours have been completed. Works with ipad, iphone and samsung before connecting to pc. Makes guitars sound as good as my playing allows very happy.
I initially bought the gloss white a2’s for my home office about 4 months ago and were totally blown away by them. I moved into a new office with my work and thought i’d treat myself to the bigger a5’s and boy am i glad i didat home i have the smaller a2’s running off an asus d2x soundcard so i was worried that i may be wasting the larger a5’s on my work pc with no fancy soundcard but to be honest they sound just as good as i’d hoped and are money well spent. Perhap’s ill get the dac later but don’t really see the need now. The music sounds fantastic even at very low volumes which is how they play throughout the day till everyone else leaves and then i crank them up a bit.
Audioengine A5+ Powered Multimedia Speakers Pair in Satin Black : Would be 5 stars but i blew a driver. These speakers are great, i’m on my second pair because the first ones popped a driver after just a few months. I hope these ones hold up longerthey are bass heavy, so for hiphop heads you are going to be in for a treat. Update: they held up longer and audioengine did a great job of replacing foc. Wish you did some floor standing active speakers.
