AudioEngine HD6 Powered Speakers : Sounds fantastic but several irritating small issues

Have been using them on a regular basis since over a year. The bluetooth connection with computer works smoothly, has almost no quality loss and has no latency. The sound definition is absolutely amazing for music as well as movies and is ideal for a good mid-range home cinema.

The is nothing more to be said about these speakers from audioengine they’re very good in sound & manufacturing quality and a real pleasure to listen too for hours. Compatible with brennan b2 bluetooth.

These speakers look great and sound excellent. Good bass even without an external sub, and nice crisp highs and mids. Bluetooth connectivity is a nice addition, and they seem to handle multiple inputs (optical and bluetooth) well.

So i’ve had these for a several weeks so far. A couple of small issues1) no optical cable, i knew that already but still annoying2) the power cable is a two pin so not standard uk plug so had to buy adaptor3) the current bluetooth device needs to be manually disconnected before next device can connect, really annoying, any cheap device allows you to override the first with a second4) sound gets mixed if you play two devices eg bluetooth about auxiliary in at the same time5) as there us no volume indicator can’t tell where you are at is it 25% 80% can never know having gauge helps6) i didn’t see any security on the bluetooth- means anybody can connect to the speaker if i’m not connectedi haven’t played them to the recommended 40hrs yet but sound and music is fantastic so far will come back with a proper sound review later. Because of the loads of small issues i’m gonna give it 4update: after a listening extensively i’m coming back and giving it a 5 based on sound alone. Though for certain types of base sounds you will need a subwoofer.

  • Versatile connectivity
  • Retro-forward design
  • Easy setup
  • Quality sound

Pros: easy for bt-audio connect, nice stereo image and sound quality, elegant design, multiple input options. Cons: the bass performance is a little bit too strong. For the powered speakers in terms of the price level and performance, it is an excellent choicehighly recommend.

I have the a2+ speakers, as much as i love them these are simply on another level entirely. The most important thing is to run them in for a couple of days as this really seems to improve the sound.
