Audioengine A5+ Powered Speakers Review

 

Wow. How did five years go by so quickly? We first became aware of Audioengine in early 2007, when the company asked if we'd be interested in evaluating its A5 self-powered speakers. It's now 2012, and we have the revamped A5+ self-powered speakers on...

Audioengine A5 Speaker System

 

The Audioengine 5 Speaker System has us all giddy. It's the closest thing to perfect we've seen--er, heard--in awhile.

Incredible sound from small packages; built-in USB charger for your MP3 player; AC-outlet in back for a wireless audio streaming box

They're a bit large for a crowded desktop

UPDATED 2/8/2008:  While referencing this review for an upcoming review of the Audioengine A2, we noticed that the online review had the incorrect verdict (a "9" versus a "9 Kick Ass").

Primo - yes,

Fantastic sound and build quality. No receiver needed. Well-thought-out design ; Costs more than other speaker systems. No digital input, dock, or remote

Costs more than other speaker systems. No digital input, dock, or remote

If sound quality is your main concern, you can't go wrong with the Audioengine 5 speakers.

Audiophile-quality performance. Flat response speakers that provide refined bass performance. Attractive design.

Remote has very few controls on it. No ability to adjust treble or bass. Not for bass lovers.

The fantastic, audiophile-friendly Audioengine 5+ speakers sound powerful without a thunderous subwoofer or booming bass.

Audioengine's new A5+ speakers keep what was already great about the company's original A5s, while adding a number of small refinements.

Easy to setup; excellent sound; good construction; comes with lots of extras

The price tag could be a tad too high ; but with quality this good ; its worth it

The Audioengine 5 speakers simply rock. When properly set up, the A5's provide crisp, powerful, life-like audio.

Excellent sound quality. Integrated power supply and amplifier. Auxiliary power jack.

No digital input. Speaker wire could be a bit longer.

The Audioengine 5 has impressive-sounding powered speakers that don't require a receiver. They have some interesting features, but I'd like to see some type of digital input.

Audioengine A5 (black)

 

Editors' note (February 21, 2012): The speakers reviewed here have been replaced by the newer Audioengine 5+ speakers .

The powered Audioengine 5 speakers deliver phenomenal sound and offer simple, attractive styling. They feature two audio inputs and two integrated charging options (one USB port, one AC plug). Speaker wire connections mean that you can optimize stereo...

The speakers aren't cheap, and many will find them to be too large and bulky compared with PC speakers. There's no remote control, and no way to toggle between inputs.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a pair of powered stereo speakers at this price point that sounds better--and offer more flexibility--than the Audioengine 5s.

AudioEngine A5+ Speakers Review

 

For multimedia speakers, the extension of the AudioEngine 5+ speakers are going to give you some excellent real-world low end not found on most 2.0 systems-and you can always add a subwoofer.

There is no doubt that the Audioengine A5+ speakers are going to be a hit. At $400, you are getting a lot of speaker for not a lot of money.
