Audioengine A5+ wireless speakers review

 

As with any wireless take on a great set of speakers, the Bluetooth-connected variant of Audioengine's A5+ speakers had us very excited when they arrived in our A/V testing room. How do they compete with the superb original model, and could the...

Superb treble definition ; Punchy bass ; Wide stereo image ; Excellent wireless performance

No input switch between Bluetooth and RCA

The Audioengine A5+ Wireless bring vibrant and lifelike sound to small and medium sized rooms, adding the convenience of wireless connection while maintaining the same outstanding audio performance we’ve loved for over a decade.

Audioengine A5+ Wireless

 

Audioengine's A5+ Wireless speakers deliver a stellar sonic experience aimed at audiophiles with 24-bit upsampling to ensure high-quality Bluetooth audio.

Excellent audio performance with solid bass depth and clarity throughout the frequency range. High-quality Bluetooth streaming with 24-bit upsampling. Wired connectivity options. Can be used with a subwoofer.

No source knob. Limited remote control.

If you want a good-looking, high quality all-in-one wireless speaker system, perhaps with a companion app or voice assistance, you have strong options in the Google Home Max, the Sonos One, and the Urbanears Baggen. But not everyone wants a "smart"...

Audioengine A5+ review: Audioengine A5+

 

Audioengine A5+

The ; powered speakers deliver phenomenal sound and offer simple, attractive styling. They feature two audio inputs and an integrated USB port for charging source devices (phones, iPods). The two speakers can be placed as far apart as needed to...

The speakers aren't cheap, and many will find them to be too large and bulky compared with standard PC speakers. The AC power port found in the earlier model is no longer present, and you can't switch between the two inputs--both are always active.

The Audioengine 5+ powered speakers deliver excellent sound quality and provide a clutter-free way to listen to smartphones, iPods, or any other audio source.

Audioengine 5+

 

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

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.

Before we discuss the A5+'s audio performance, let's briefly discuss the differences between it and the older A5, which is $50 cheaper and still available from Audioengine. The A5+'s most notable upgrades are the inclusion of a remote control, the...

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

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 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 review

 

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

More expensive than many are willing to pay ; Large for desktop use ; Extra AC outlet (as on original A5) removed ; Not the clearest audio out there
