Audioengine 2 Speakers

 

It's the era of the iPod and compressed music; of small speakers that look better than they sound, and of course the gradual diminishing of pure audio applications. While audiophiles have isolated themselves from the consumer market and created a niche...

It's been a while since a product has come my way that I was seriously impressed with. The price of the Audioengine 2 speakers is very good considering the quality, living up to the marketing claim of 'bridging the audiophile gap'. Yes, this is the...

Audioengine 2+

 

What the Audioengine A2+ stereo speakers lack in extra features, they more than make up for in accuracy and overall performance.

Dynamic, audiophile-quality performance. Sounds clear throughout the frequency range. Uses internal DAC and USB connection for purer audio playback

Wireless streaming only available with an additional, optional accessory. Not for big bass lovers unless you add the separate subwoofer

While most of the consumer audio world has turned its focus to docks and wireless systems, Audioengine remains steadfast in its commitment to the standard two-piece, stereo, bookshelf-style speaker setup. When we reviewed the original Audioengine 2, no...

Audioengine A2+ ( white)

 

We're fans of Audioengine's original 2 series speaker, the A2 , which came out a few years ago and retails for $199.99. Now the company's released the A2+, an enhanced version of the same speaker that adds a USB digital converter, so you can plug the...

The Audioengine A2+ is compact set of attractively style powered stereo speakers that delivers impressive sound for its size. This new "plus" version adds a digital USB connection, an output for an optional subwoofer to the existing two audio inputs,...

The speakers lack a remote control, the volume control is inconveniently located on the backside, and there's no way to toggle between inputs. The Audioengines are also a bit pricey compared with less refined PC speakers.

While they'll cost you $50 more, Audioengine A2+ multimedia speakers improve on an already great product (the A2) with slightly better sound when hooked up to your computer via a new USB connection.

Audioengine A2 Desktop Speakers

 

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

Fantastic music reproduction, Small, elegant-looking speakers

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

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 2 (white)

 

We've been a little tardy in reviewing Audioengine's PC speakers, but we're glad we finally got our hands on both the 2 series ($199) reviewed here and the step-up Audioengine 5 series (about $325 online) because they really are quite impressive.

These compact powered speakers deliver phenomenal sound for their size. They offer simple, attractive styling, and two audio inputs.

The speakers lack a remote control, and the volume control is inconveniently located on the backside, and there's no way to toggle between inputs. The Audioengines are also a bit pricey compared with less refined PC speakers.

Though they're not cheap, the Audioengine 2 speakers are an ideal combination of compact size and good looks, delivering great sound for their size.

Audioengine 2

 

Audioengine makes relatively affordable speakers for audiophiles, but the Audioengine 2 represents something of a break: $200 computer speakers for sound snobs. There's no fancy styling, no subwoofer, and no remote controlall you really get is stellar...

Accurate, pristine audio performance. Full-bodied but not overpowering bass. Handles high volumes well. Attractive design.

Large footprint. Not for those who seek subwoofer rumble. No remote or extra features.

Audiophiles looking to amp up their PC sound should look no further than the Audioengine 2, but bass buffs should look elsewhere.

Audioengine 2+ Premium Powered Desktop Speakers Preview

 

Preview: Basically it looks like Audioengine read all the reviews the A2 speakers have gotten and took the biggest complaints and fixed them with the A2+. That just sounds like good business to us.

If you wanted a direct connection from your computer to your Audioengine speakers, the A2+ have what you need. While they are still lacking a headphone output (maybe they are saving that for the A2++), the USB connection is now available. For those...

Audioengine A2 Desktop Speaker Review

 

The Audioengine A2 is a compact two-way desktop system that offers amazing bass, good sound and a pretty finish with a 3-year warranty. Recommended!

Beautiful appearance ; Great frequency response ; Strong bass output ; Nice warranty and return policy ; Portability

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

Audioengine A2+ Desktop Speakers Review

 

I have been into computer audio since the time it meant ripping your CDs into lossy files to either load them up on your mp3 player or to play them back over plastic computer "speakers." The evolution of digital file playback has rendered that scenario...

Review: Audioengine 2 Desktop Speakers

 

Compact, nicely designed speaker system provides good sound.

Excellent sound quality, especially bass ; Good volume capability ; Dual input options ; Compact design ; Rear connectors well laid out

Volume and power switch on the back ; For price, should include speaker wire with banana clips, not bare stripped wire

The Audioengine 2 Speakers are Hong Kong-based Audioengine Corp.’s effort to bring a higher quality listening experience for music played on digital audio equipment. Dubbed as “Premium Powered Desktop Speakers,” the company positions the Audioengine

Product Specifications

The Audioengine 2 is a great introduction to high-quality audio and the perfect upgrade for your computer or select play. The Audioengine 2 (A2) is about one-third the size of Audioengine's flagship Audioengine 5 system and is an excellent computer audio upgrade or small room speaker. Audioengine used the same custom tweeters as the Audioengine 5, matched them with newly designed compact Kevlar woofers and then added high-performance amplifiers with gold-plated speaker connectors. All this great engineering is wrapped in wood cabinets with a hand-polished finish to create a premium quality desktop multimedia speaker system that puts those plastic computer speakers to shame! To say that the bass on Audioengine 2 is substantial for their size may be an understatement, but you should be the judge. The bass comes from some very clever acoustic and electrical design and without using any DSP or fake bass boost circuits. Wood remains a preferred speaker enclosure material for its stiffness at higher volume levels and the sealed cabinet focuses just the right amount of low end from the tuned front port slots. The A2 was designed for your desktop but is also perfect for smaller rooms. Well-suited for all types of music, movies, and videogames, the A2 sounds great with or without a subwoofer. Using a similar design as the Audioengine 5, the A2 power amplifiers are built inside the left speaker, providing a very efficient system. An auto-sleep standby circuit was also included to conserve power. Audioengine has included 1/8 mini jack and RCA inputs so connecting A2 is easy. No software installs, plug-ins, or sound card upgrades. The Audioengine 2 sets a new level of audio and aesthetic quality for powered multimedia speakers and further closes the gap between computer speakers and home audio.
