Audioengine 5 review: Audioengine 5

 

Audioengine 5

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 5

 

The Audioengine 5 is a very good two-speaker alternative to the Apple Hi-Fi, but doesn't have a dock.

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

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

Audioengine A5 Powered Speaker System Review

 

As a reviewer, one gets a chance to see, hear and play with a variety of equipment - some good and some not so good. Every now and then a product comes into your hands that takes you by surprise. The

Superb High End Sound Quality ; Superb Build Quality ; Beautiful Finish ; High Quality Drivers

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 A5 Powered Bookshelf Speakers Review

 

When I first began reviewing audio equipment I took the approach that performance came first, price came second. It didn't matter if a piece of gear cost $50 or $5,000, if its performance and build justified the MSRP and could enhance my audio...

Sweet Sound of Audioengine A5 Speakers

 

Audioengine might not be a company you've heard of, but they're one of the best-kept secrets in audio: the A5 is their first, and flagship, product and it sets the quality bar for the company. These speakers, while expensive compared to mainstream...

Crisp, clear, powerful sound ; Decent bass response despite a lack of subwoofer ; Dual audio inputs and USB device charging

The lack of a sub-woofer will be missed if you're a bass head ; Weight and size pushes the limit of what would be considered a "bookshelf" speaker

The song has lush acoustic guitars, but it was also recorded in such a way that all of the natural sounds of playing acoustic guitar are there: the sound of fingers moving to different positions, the sound of the pick (or fingernails) hitting the...

Audioengine 5 Speaker System

 

The Audioengine 5 system represents a new breed of stereo systems - standalone systems with integrated amplifiers that are specifically designed to produce the highest sound quality possible from MP3 players and other sources of digital music (such as...

Amazingly good sound quality, sleek and compact styling, multiple audio inputs, built-in amplifier, 30-day money back guarantee

Steep price tag may be too high for some, no digital audio inputs

I have spent dozens of hours listening to the Audioengine 5 speaker system and continue to be surprised by just how good they sound with MP3s. In a number of my favorite songs, I have been able to pick out specific points in the song where I can now...

Weive already reviewed the Audioengine5 speaker set at iPodObserver.com as an iPod companion, but these speakers are so good, they also need to be reviewed as desktop monitors. When it comes to listening to and recording music, there are no other...

Audioengine 5 Amplified Speaker System

 

Notwithstanding, some folks who seek home ports for their iPods may dismiss the Audioengine 5 as an also-ran, a curiosity, a mere footnote in the history of the Apple steamroller. They shouldn't. This is a great-sounding system.
