Audioengine A5, Best Speakers I’ve Owned

Pleasant sounding, first rate base from reasonably small speakers.

Breath using seem that belies the sizing of these speakers. Deep limited bass, distinct crisp mids and major end that stay precise as you enhance the quantity – no necessarily mean feat thinking of how loud they go. Would recommend at minimum cd excellent input if you want to hear the whole capabilities of these speakers.

Superb sound and gorgeous style. I am even now in the 1st ten hrs of the breakin time period for these speakers, but i can properly say i’m currently hugely amazed. I have tested them with a variety of seems, from action movies, to acoustic guitar audio, to drum and bass, these speakers do them all really very well. You will find no question these speakers have a bit far more kick to them on the very low close, but it is really subtle, not extraordinary or overdone like other manufacturers (i’m wanting at you beats). The develop of these is good, few of reliable inputs, superior volume command on the entrance and although the controller is very simple, it’s really appreciated. Audio high quality is excellent, superior stable bass from the massive 5′ woofers but nevertheless retains incredibly great clarity in the greater registers and midtones. As i go on by way of the melt away in period, i’m guaranteed this will go on to increase. I fiddled about questioning irrespective of whether to get these for a though, my suggestion. Just go for it, you will not likely be dissatisfied.

Those left a wonderful impact on me. Individuals left a fantastic impact on me. Coming from a track record of laptop speakers male these two carried out exceptional to all other speakers just before. The best sound gets clear when you elevate the volume.

I have owned a truthful bit of hifi over the many years, a good deal of naim, rega, atc, pmc, chord and regrettably cyrus have been recruited to let the neighbours to share my really like of new music. On the other hand i am not guaranteed i have nevertheless expert these types of pound for pound worth as i have with these units. When properly positioned they boast wonderful detail, speedy and precise decreased frequencies and a variety of connectivity that really should allow for most users to effortlessly present a source machine. Establish good quality is quite spectacular for the rate also. Completely advisable, and i feel you would be difficult pushed to obtain a much better separate amplifer, speaker and interconnect option for the same rate. A wonderful products in my belief.

Audioengine A5+ Powered Multimedia Speakers Pair in Satin Black : I bought these because of my frustration with the low quality inbuilt speakers on the apple imac. I wanted to play music at a high volume but also with a lot of quality and these fitted that description perfectly. Unlike other powered desktop speakers these also looked great next to the stylish imac.Absolute must for anyone wanting to play high quality music. Thinking about buying another pair for a christmas present.

Now that i have owned these for a good period, i feel i that can give an honest and comprehensive review of these speakers. Out of the box they immediately impress as they are shrouded in their own cloth bags and they look very impressive. All the cables are present to allow for a quick set up. I have placed these either side of my pc monitor and hooked them up via an arcam rpac using the usb in and rca out connections. Although i have not the funds nor probably the best ‘audiophile’ ears, i certainly appreciate the depth of sound that these produce and i would bet that these would challenge speakers at twice the price. I have used these as a hasty party set up and even just using an iphone cabled into the 3. 5 jack the sound is most impressive.

    Happy with these for 3 weeks. I was very happy with these for 3 weeks until a fault developed. They sounded thick, with sufficient bass and clarity for a 2. 0 set-up and i was very impressed with how they handled everything i played through them. Then i noticed the right passive speaker was considerable louder and punchier than the left powered one. This could be rectified by turning the volume up high, causing a crackling sound that seemingly re-engaged the speaker to full output, however after around 10 minutes the left speaker gradually lost volume again. I tried using different cables and inputs but nothing solved the issue. Very disappointing considering the cost and how i initially felt about them. I wasn’t willing to get a replacement so opted to exchange them for another brand. Still, if you receive a working set, i’m sure you will be happy.

    I dont think you can get any better. Bought smsl sd 793ii dac and isoacoustics l8r155 stands for these speakers and. Before that i was a bit dissapointed, but with this setup and having them properly positioned on my desk, they sound just great. I dont think you can get any better with any other active/powered speakers. The next level is amp+pasive monitors.
    • Breath taking sound that belies the size of these speakers. Deep tight bass, clear crisp mids and top end that remain precise as you increase the volume – no mean feat considering how loud they go. Would recommend at least cd quality input if you want to hear the full capabilities of these speakers.

    The a5+’s are a fantastic set of 2. 0 speakers, that are both bookshelf and/or desktop speakers. The bass is really dominant, maybe too much, but not so that the rest is drowned out, there is fantastic clarity in vocals and the mid to high range, and was even better when i have played with the eq settings on my pc. I use the a5+ with the d1 dac from audio engine as well. I got mine in solid bamboo, and the build quality is absolutely outstanding, with not imperfections at all, it looks fantastic. The £330 i paid at the time is totally worth it and i could not be more happy with this purchase.

    Extremely good bookshelf/desk top speakers with built-in amplifier. I use these to listen to hires music from my laptop when ‘on the road’ and they produce an impressive full sound. Due to their solid build quality and built-in amplifier, they are not light to carry but when fed a good signal (via an audioengine d1 dac in my case) they sound almost as good as our much more expensive and bulkier hifi speakers. I have played everything from harp solos, full orchestral, prog rock, female vocals and blu-ray soundtracks through them, all with stunning clarity and good extended bass response (don’t expect the ultra-low bass of a sub-woofer). They are supplied with a good length of reasonable quality 2-channel speaker cable so positioning for a good stereo soundstage is not a problem. Very highly recommended especially if you can purchase for under £200 (i would have prefered the bamboo finish but that was £100 more at the time of purchase, so i chose the white).
    • Those left a great impression on me. Those left a great impression on me. Coming from a background of pc speakers guy these two performed outstanding to all other speakers before. The perfect sound becomes obvious when you raise the volume.
      • These are truly amazing speakers. Without a doubt they have higher sq. Ok so im new to speakers so to speak but earphones i have some more experience with. These are truly amazing speakers. Without a doubt they have higher sq than any set of earphones i have heard. My previous set was a pair of senheiser ie80s and some logitech speakers. Oh my the bass its so rich and deep continues through and battles for the centerplace of any track along side the highs wich are bouncy and clear. The highs and bass do make the curve a large bass hump and high hump in my opinion, wich is absolutely fine because they do both tremendouslythe construction is very good. They have a sheen clean cut look to them and will blend into and modern space seamlessly. The knob controls all of the speakers functions.

    When you buy these speakers you know that you make a trade-off between look and substance: for the same price there are better speakers out there, albeit ugly. But this trade-off is minimal, the a5+ are really good, clean, very fun to listen to and can play awfully loud. And you get a lovely finish to boot. I was a bit anxious about one thing: some people, on hifi fora, say that they tend to be bright sounding. Although it’s not a fault, a lot of people like bright sounding speakers, i certainly don’t. After a whole afternoon of listening at very high volume (i’ll probably be homeless by tomorrow), i can say that i don’t find them bright, and i haven’t suffered from listening fatigue (yet).

    Excellent sound and beautiful design. I’m still in the first 10 hours of the breakin period for these speakers, but i can safely say i’m already hugely impressed. I’ve tested them with a variety of sounds, from action movies, to acoustic guitar music, to drum and bass, these speakers do them all very well. There’s no doubt these speakers have a bit more kick to them on the low end, but it’s subtle, not dramatic or overdone like other brands (i’m looking at you beats). The build of these is great, couple of solid inputs, good volume control on the front and although the controller is simple, it’s very appreciated. Sound quality is brilliant, good solid bass from the large 5″ woofers but still retains very good clarity in the higher registers and midtones. As i continue through the burn in period, i’m sure this will continue to improve. I fiddled about wondering whether to get these for a while, my suggestion. Just go for it, you won’t be disappointed.
    • Saving up for the subwoofer. As if it’s as good as these are already. I should be left with an amazing set. I am considering buying another set for my bedroom.
      • Customer experience * ;customer service **** ;speakers *****. Customer experience:very poor, i paid extra to get these delivered at a certain time as they were a gift for my husband. Something went wrong seriously with quality standards of the set of audioengine a5+’s i received, they should never have been delivered to a customer but been chucked in the skip. Mine were missing the remote control, mini-jack audio cable, rca to rca audio cable, setup guide. Furthermore, there was a big blob of blu tac residue on the side of one of the speakers as well as an unwanted scratch. To cap it all they did not even work. I eventually received a pair of speakers 2 days after our special day. However, we then had the hassle of having to wait in over the next two days for pick ups and drop offs. Not great as we had both booked two days off of work for a long weekend to celebrate.
  8. Excellent sound – pity about the quality control. Speakers arrived quickly, were easy to set up and sounded fantastic for about 20 hours – then they blew a fuse. The circuit was surge protected, the music wasn’t particularly loud and the speakers weren’t even warm but from then on every replacement fuse blew as soon as they were switched on. Lodged a complaint with amazon and they sent round a replacement set the following morning and took away the dead ones the same day. Cant really fault the customer service here – within 24 hours i was back to having functioning speakers. They are still working fine and sound brilliant. The sound is lively and detailed with excellent stereo imagery. There is a cleanliness to the sound typical of high quality monitors and the bass is remarkably clear and firm. They are plenty loud enough and fill a medium sized room confidently. The only drawback i can see is that having rear bass ports they need to have some space behind them.

    Using them with my tv (flat’s too small for surround sound imo and i didn’t fancy a sound bar) and they’re perfect. I was lucky enough to pick these up for quite cheap due to finding a set on amazon warehouse. But i would be pay for these at full price again in a heart beat.
