Throughout this time Linn has championed the position that the most important component in the musical chain is the source, since the signals produced by the source determine the ultimate quality of the rest of the reproduction chain. This was true...

Audioengine 5 Speaker System

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...
