Audioengine A5+ Powered Multimedia Speakers Pair in Satin Black, Excellent sound and beautiful design

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.

Most impressed compared to creative t20s. I had a pair of creative t20s plugged into the tv for years to provide better sound, but now with an amazon fire box i am streaming all my music and prime films so wanted better speakers with a bit more bass and oomph. I have more bass and oomph by the truck load with audioengine a5+ and they don’t take up much more space than the t20s. Just playing tilted by christine and the queens demonstrates what these speakers can do compared to the t20s. Most impressed with these lovely speakers.

Those speakers must have been designed by audiophiles, and they do a great job. Suprising sound for the size, it is way enough to play my records in my small living room (about 20 square meters).

Its not too good especially for the price. . I like it for its aesthetic and easy control. But i hate to say this first the volume level you do not know how much you have as a white only flickers when the volume know is turned thats it also i hate the lack of bass. I switched from a 8 year old home cinema dvd player thinking to make it sound better and my setup look better. Unfortunately i was disappointing with it and now stuck with ok sound quality with little to no bass which sucks. I also had a issue as then the volume of the speakers was too high it wood make a pop sound every 10 seconds which was very annoying also without knowing what volume it is so i can adjust it.

Great sound quality, but a few tiny niggles. First of all – the reasons for the 4 stars:-it’s very hard to know how loud the speakers are set to. As the volume knob turns infinitely the only indication volume levels are being changed are by a small flashing light on the front. There is no actual level markings to see how loud you currently are. -the speakers are designed to be sat on a desk and so the tweeters at the top should be at eye level (or angled at) to get the best sound however as there is no stand/ledge type thing included you will need to provide your own to enjoy these speakers at their best. -low volume bass is a bit weak which is why i guess they produce the optional subwoofer as at louder volumes the bass response is more that adequate. I purchased these speakers as a replacement to an awful tv surround sound system that i was using for music playback and i must say the sound quality is incredible. The speakers and associated cables come wrapped in microfibre drawstring bags which are very nice for shipping but i don’t really see a used for them after you opened that box. The speakers are very simply laid out one speaker being powered with the amp inside and the second speaker just being passive with a single speaker wire going to it from the powered (left) speaker. The speaker wire provided is very nice quality and around 2m in length so there is plenty of it even for the widest of desks.

Great quality at low and high volumes. Went for the bamboo finish and it’s definitely worth the extra money – they look stunning.

This review is written with the speakers used for just a few hours, so not ‘run in’ as they should be. I’m also running them through the audioengine d1 dac (digital analogue converter) via a usb port. Firstly – they’re quite a bit bigger than desktops speakers – they are definitely for shelf or wall mounting. The finish is of high standard and looks modern but quietly understated. Set up is easy – the quick setup guide for all the products is included and from the box to the fist sounds took around 15 minutes, including cable running and placement etc. Music and sound quality is important to me so i was highly critical in my selection and took time to read lots of reviews. Using the dac, these speakers deliver a clarity of sound i haven’t heard from a computer speaker before – they are comparable to mid-range hi-fi units from wharfedale etc. My music tastes are wide and varied – i’ve listened to most things from classical piano, violin through to heavy guitar rock, acoustic sets and electronica and they deliver flawlessly.

What can i say, i received these about an hour ago and they sound stunning- and that’s before i’ve even begun to burn them in properly. The highs are on point, mids are solid and the base is at the right levels and beautifully separated. Sound stage is also the best i’ve ever experienced for a speaker set. Worth noting that this is with spotify as well- so even poor quality sound streaming sound great with these speakers. I live in a terraced shared house with families one either side so i was worried about how the sound quality would be effected on low volumes- but so far all i’ve done on low volume is *inset some polite way of saying i’m soundgasming*. I also bought some pads to go under the speakers to reduce the base vibration which has also helped- the lyxpro mns-4’s do the job, fit well and look great with the speakers. So yeah, i’m one happy audiophile. I’d like to say a special thank you to the british tax payer for funding this through my student loan. ********one year on**********after burning them in and fiddling around with various configurations, the system still blows me away every time i press play.

There are a great number of computer speakers, especially on amazon. After careful review and consideration i popped for the audioengine a5+, which lived-up to my expectations. Very well packaged, easy to set-up, and the sound and build quality were exactly as advertised. Certainly at the high end of the price range, but money well spent.

Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics 2020i Graph : For the price 5 Star

If you want the audiophile review you should probably read a different website, but they sound very good. You need to be aware that they really are quite deep speakers, check the measurements. I’ve wall mounted them and you wouldn’t want to do that in a small room. The binding …

Fantastic speakers for the money. Obviously due to the there size they require a subwoofer for lower frequencies (i’d say. They are built well and include wall mounts (however many have said these are not very good). For creating a home cinema setup these are perfect. Perfect for your outdoor …
