Audioengine A2 Speakers

 

If you think deploying a subwoofer is a prerequisite to obtaining big-time bass, you haven't heard Audioengine's A5 speakers. And if you're convinced you need huge cabinets for thumping bass, you haven't heard the company's new diminutive A2 system.

Amazing sound in a tiny form-factor. No subwoofer necessary

Lacks the front-mounted volume control and USB port charger of the A5

While an all-around solid system, the A2’s volume control would be much handier if it were located on the front of the cabinet, and we miss the convenient USB charging port that the A5 boasts. But we have no complaints with the A2’s sound—it rocks,...

If you think a deploying a subwoofer is a prerequisite to obtaining big-time bass, you haven't heard Audioengine's A5 speakers. And if you're convinced you at least need cabinets as big as those of the A5, you haven't heard the diminutive Audioengine A2.

Amazing low-end frequency response from very small boxes; Kevlar woofers and silk drivers; MDF cabinets

Lacks two of the best features found on the Audioengine A5; amp is adequate only for near-field listening or small rooms

But we have no complaints with the A2’s sound—these little puppies rock, delivering spectacular sound with a wide variety of tunes. They don’t get as loud as some larger systems we’ve auditioned lately, but they’re easily the speakers to beat at this...

These small, elegant-looking speakers serve up musical bliss.

Small, elegant-looking speakers ; Fantastic music reproduction

Bass-heads need not apply ; Volume control resides on back of left speaker

The Audioengine A2 speaker set should be on the short list of anyone who values good musical reproduction over chest-thumping bass. If you're not sure into which camp you fall, you can order directly from the company, audition the A2s for up to 30...

Audioengine recently announced the little brother to the A5, the A2 desktop speaker set. The A2 speakers are roughly half the size of the A5 and they don't put out quite as much power, but they seem to have just as much intensity per cubic inch as the...

High quality finish; compact design; connects to multiple sources

Thick bass can overpower mids & highs unless EQ corrected; a bit pricey

The audioengine A2 speakers are a powerful 2.0 audio option for casual, office and home theater use.

Review: Audioengine A2 Portable Speaker System

 

With small dimensions, a pretty finish, power to spare, and two accommodating inputs, Audioengine's Desktop A2 speaker system can augment several of your audio sources.

High treble, but not loud enough ; Inconvenient volume knob placement ; No speaker covers

Why try so many connections? Because the speakers have two types of inputs and I wanted to hear what each piece of equipment would sound like making note of any differences.

There's little doubt that the Audioengine A2 is a gem. Its tiny size, appealing simple looks and operation, and well-thought out details exude an impressive level of quality. The real reward is when they're plugged in and the music turned on. It's hard...
