Audioengine A5 : Good quality Products!!!!

Superb functionality at a great selling price. Acquired these to give good seem to a tv set, blu-ray participant and apple tv set up (also demanded a £40 lindy dac, also from barletts). The resulting set up offers wealthy, space filling seem from all 3 equipment, at a really superior price tag. Songs has rich bass notes and perfectly fixed increased frequencies, with superb clarity. Audio from the tv set is incredibly crystal clear which suggests the quantity can be turned way down. The two sets of inputs on the back again of the a5+ allows relationship of the two audio streams (a single from the apple tv set, the other from the television set/blu-ray combo) without the need of manual switching. The program operates fortunately with getting distinctive audio streams from different gadgets at the exact same time, combining them with out complications. This works amazingly nicely when you perform a film from the atv to the television set, as both equally audio outs mail an similar signal, but with a small latency among them.

Exceptionally good bookshelf/desk top speakers with built-in amplifier. I use these to hear to hires tunes from my laptop when ‘on the road’ and they create an extraordinary full sound. Owing to their solid create excellent and crafted-in amplifier, they are not gentle to have but when fed a superior sign (by means of an audioengine d1 dac in my circumstance) they audio virtually as great as our significantly more pricey and bulkier hifi speakers. I have played almost everything from harp solos, full orchestral, prog rock, woman vocals and blu-ray soundtracks by them, all with breathtaking clarity and superior prolonged bass reaction (will not count on the extremely-very low bass of a sub-woofer). They are provided with a good size of acceptable excellent two-channel speaker cable so positioning for a good stereo soundstage is not a problem. Extremely very suggested specially if you can purchase for beneath £200 (i would have prefered the bamboo complete but that was £100 a lot more at the time of order, so i chose the white).

I initially owned and continue to have the a2+ speakers which i made use of at dwelling day in day out with my pc for about 6 months and was overwhelmingly amazed by the audio the small a2s could create. I have considering the fact that moved into my possess office environment at operate and therefore made a decision to benefit from the excellent audio there also. As an alternative of ordering the exact speakers yet again for household, i decided to update and attempt their massive brother the a5+. Wow wow wow – what a huge jump in audio. These points can definitely give out some effective sound. Really don’t be fooled that these will distort and give you inadequate high-quality – sound stays crisp and thorough all over the entrie audio spectrum. I was thinking these would be a superior alternative and move up from the a2+s but i am actually heading to get rid of my hi-fi procedure as these are just a great deal far better in all ways. Do not be reluctant to get these – wager acquire of the yr so significantly.Here are the specifications for the Audioengine A5:

  • Custom Kevlar woofers
  • Silk dome tweeters
  • Hand-built cabinets
  • Enhanced thermal management
  • Works with any computer

Now that i have owned these for a good period, i really feel i that can give an. Now that i have owned these for a good period of time, i truly feel i that can give an genuine and detailed evaluation of these speakers. Out of the box they promptly impress as they are shrouded in their have fabric luggage and they appear quite amazing. All the cables are current to allow for for a brief set up. I have put these possibly facet of my computer monitor and hooked them up via an arcam rpac making use of the usb in and rca out connections. Even though i have not the funds nor probably the very best ‘audiophile’ ears, i surely value the depth of sound that these produce and i would bet that these would obstacle speakers at two times the cost. I have made use of these as a hasty bash established up and even just applying an apple iphone cabled into the 3. 5 jack the seem is most outstanding.

Excellent sound and lovely design. I’m nevertheless in the very first 10 hours of the breakin time period for these speakers, but i can securely say i’m presently massively impressed. I have analyzed them with a selection of sounds, from motion motion pictures, to acoustic guitar music, to drum and bass, these speakers do them all pretty effectively. You will find no question these speakers have a bit a lot more kick to them on the low stop, but it is refined, not spectacular or overdone like other brand names (i’m looking at you beats). The develop of these is excellent, pair of solid inputs, very good quantity control on the front and though the controller is basic, it can be very appreciated. Sound top quality is fantastic, good solid bass from the large 5′ woofers but nevertheless retains incredibly very good clarity in the increased registers and midtones. As i continue on by way of the melt away in period of time, i am certain this will carry on to strengthen. I fiddled about wondering no matter whether to get these for a while, my recommendation. Just go for it, you will not be dissatisfied.

Buyer working experience * customer support **** speakers *****. Purchaser experience:incredibly lousy, i paid out further to get these delivered at a particular time as they had been a gift for my partner. Some thing went wrong significantly with excellent requirements of the set of audioengine a5+’s i obtained, they should really in no way have been sent to a purchaser but been chucked in the skip. Mine were lacking the remote command, mini-jack audio cable, rca to rca audio cable, set up information. Additionally, there was a large blob of blu tac residue on the side of just one of the speakers as nicely as an undesirable scratch. To cap it all they did not even do the job. I sooner or later received a pair of speakers 2 days after our distinctive day. Nevertheless, we then experienced the trouble of having to hold out in above the upcoming two days for decide on ups and drop offs. Not excellent as we experienced both booked two times off of operate for a prolonged weekend to celebrate.

Pleased with these for three months. I was incredibly pleased with these for 3 months right up until a fault produced. They sounded thick, with enough bass and clarity for a 2. set-up and i was very impressed with how they taken care of all the things i played as a result of them. Then i noticed the suitable passive speaker was sizeable louder and punchier than the left powered one particular. This could be rectified by turning the quantity up substantial, producing a crackling audio that seemingly re-engaged the speaker to entire output, nevertheless soon after all over ten minutes the left speaker steadily dropped volume once again. I tried using utilizing different cables and inputs but nothing solved the challenge. Very disappointing looking at the price and how i originally felt about them. I wasn’t inclined to get a substitute so opted to exchange them for a further brand name. Nonetheless, if you obtain a functioning established, i am confident you will be delighted.

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.

    • 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.

    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.
