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").

Audioengine 5+

 

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.

Review: Audioengine A5+ Powered Speakers

 

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

Rich, detailed, room-filling sound that bests speakers costing twice as much. New quarter-inch threaded inserts on the bottom of each speaker for easy stand mounting. Dead simple to set up. USB power port keeps your iPhone/iPod charged and the music...

The convenient, top mounted 3.5mm AUX input and USB port are now moved to the back. Still a bit bulky for a lot of desks. Baked-in AirPlay compatibility would be nice

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+ 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.

Audioengine products may not be for sale in every retail outlet or even known by many consumers, but anyone who is looking for a pair of quality desktop speakers should give Audioengine a serious look – especially their A5+ speakers. I have owned the...

Massive sound for the size ; Accurate sound - good bass and detail ; Well made ; Affordable for what they are ; Look good on a desktop ; Added heat sink for efficiency

The Audioengine A5+ represent an uncommonly good value in today's fractured consumer audio marketplace, and a bonafide entry-level high end product. The integration of all the various components in the A5+ is outstanding, especially at the $399 asking...
