I must say I am blown away by the performance of these speakers! Paired with a good DAC, they sound divine.
I bought a pair of A5+ yesterday and they are significantly better side-by-side than a Zeppelin Air.
I am going to keep it simple; to say I am pleased with this purchase would be an understatement. Please don't start cutting corners. Your product has the potential to shame the entire audio industry into more responsible and forthright behavior. Cheers.
Holy crap! I am a self-proclaimed golden-eared audiophile snob. I listen to ridiculously expensive speakers powered by obscene amplifiers and have for years. The level of performance you have delivered with your products is astounding for the money. You people rock. Thank you.
The A2s we use for my wife's computer are a small miracle and have wonderful tone. I actually prefer their tone to the sound of my own Focal XS2.1 system which is much more expensive.
Great sound from what appear to be exceptionally well designed and manufactured product. Shipping in cloth bags also a nice touch !!
Your company not only makes high-quality products, but also provides first-class customer service and for that, I thank you.
Just a short thank you for producing a remarkable product at an insanely low price. I've paid more for interconnects than these gorgeous little A2s.
You are the Apple of consumer speaker products :)
I have a set of black A2s and am loving them – they replaced a set of M-Audio AV20s and blew them away! I currently have them connected to my PC via a Puresonic 5050a interconnect and the right hand passive speaker connected via CableTalk 3.1 speaker cable.
Fantastic sound from such small units. I listen to classical music all day in an office environment played through a PC with a high quality sound card. Former professional musician. Sound is pure and clean with excellent presence and no distortion.
After listening for 3 days I decided to throw the A2's back onto my desk and was stunned to find they significantly outperformed my Genelecs in virtually every way except for ability to play at stupid loud levels.
I own the A5's, which compare to such great speakers as my Thiel 2.4s, I could happily live exclusively with the A5s and not feel I was missing out. You guys have done some fabulous work with your speaker line.
- Gerry G
When I purchased your product, they were meant to serve as computer speakers for MP3s - but as soon as I got them I realized they were far too good for that menial task. So I then purchased a high end sound card for my computer, ripped my CDs in a lossless format, and began to enjoy music again. Thanks for that. I recommend your speakers every chance I get.
I'm on my second day of maximizing my absolute delight with the Audioengine 5!
For the A2 cost, they are a steal! Instead of just getting a small pair of video monitors that I didn't expect much of, I found myself playing various reference disks and being enthralled with their performance right out of the box. They sound even better after breaking in!
Once I had received my A5's I realized that I simply had never heard music through quality speakers before. For the first time, I found myself simply sitting in the middle of my home office simply listening to music and hearing details that I had not known were present in the music I had owned for years.
The sheer accuracy of this system is just amazing considering the size. The huge system in the living room seems almost silly at this point.
Wow! Absolutely amazing that such a small package could produce such wonderful music. Finally a product that does what it supposed to do. Well done!
I just bought a pair of A2s. Not only do they sound great, but the packaging was amazing! This level of detail shows me that you guys really care about your product and how its presented to the customer.
I love these little speakers! Great pace, clear and just enough bass so you can tell someone is playing a double bass in a jazz combo. How do you do this for $200?
I LOVE the mids, and highs of the A2s. I had almost forgotten what music sounds like coming out of a proper speaker!!!!!
The more I use my A2 speakers, the more I want to bring them with me everywhere.
I'm writing to say thank you for the wonderful W1 wireless audio adapter. Thank you for a simple and simply wonderful way of making my music accessible in ways I didn't previously think possible.
The A5+ delivers! The sound is well balanced and for the size, the bass is amazing. Clean and controlled throughout their frequency range. The dynamics are much better than I expected, must be all the amplifier headroom!
I went through a stage a couple of years ago when I spent a fortune on various active speakers, most of which seemed to sell on their looks and exaggerated performance. Then I came across your Audioengine 5's and they are the best pair of speakers I bought so far. They really do sound fantastic.
The price appears high at first glance when compared to other (big box retailer) speaker systems, but the quality is there along with the performance to more than justify it.
All I can say is WOW. The months of research for big sound that passes the wife test paid off in spades.
I'm a bit of an audiophile but on a budget, so the A2's were priced perfect for me. Thanks for making such an incredibly sounding computer speaker!
I just purchased a set of Sennheiser HD800's and am returning them today. After listening to your speakers, headphones don't cut the mustard.
I've listened to speakers from many manufacturers and the A5's are simply the best. I still may part with the cash and buy your sub-woofer.
These A2 speakers are wonderful. They are finished to a very high quality which makes a huge difference these days. Having the 2 separate inputs without an input selector switch is a touch of genius to make these stand out from everything else.
I just received and set up your A5 speakers. I wasn't prepared for the sound. Wow!!! I have never heard anything like this run through a computer.
A "5 Star" rating doesn't do justice to these speakers (maybe 6 stars). I also have a Bose Companion 5 system that I've been listening to on a 30 day trial basis. Bose is on it's way back to the store tomorrow, their system isn't even a close second.
- Jerry N
Thank you so very much. It' rare to get more than your money's worth in anything anymore, the A5+ speakers are definitely worth more than $399.
After ordering these speakers last week, I received them - they are fantastic! Everything is perfect on them, from the size (not too large), quality of the connectors, quality of the housing to the best part, the crystal clear sound.
Just treated myself to a 2nd pair of A5's (bamboo this time)...incredible - just incredible.
I have only one thing to say. YES! Well worth the greenbacks. PS - As you probably have guessed, I really don't need any support. Too busy smiling.
- John D
I'm one of your new customers, and also a fan, having just purchased A2's and A5's. Having been an audiophile for many years, it's been easy for me to see the value in your product -- they really sound terrific.
I've NEVER commented on a product before but I simply had to write you folks. I just received my new Audioengine 2 speakers and cannot believe the sound quality coming from these tiny boxes.
Thank you for an exceptional product! The sound is genuinely phenomenal. The attention to detail (product quality, packaging, literature & Website) is superb.
These are stunning little speakers. They easily produce a sound that I'd expect a speaker 3x it's size to make. The soundstage and clarity is just fantastic!
I'm one of your new customers with a pair of A2's. First of all, let me just they are fantastic! As an audiophile, I'm pretty critical. That praise may sound faint- until you realize I'm giving an honest critique based on years of comparative experience with multi-thousand dollar reference monitors.
- Silas F
Just wanted to let you know I'm very pleased with every aspect of this order. The customer service was great, the delivery was quick, the product looks and sounds great!
I just wanted to say how great I find your products to be. The A2's on my computer make listening to music there ennoyable - and I'm *used to* good sound reproduction (from my big system of Magneplanar speakers with Classe amplification).
Been using W1 for a while, and all I can say is that it has far surpassed my expectations for what a wireless audio system can do. I just ordered a second one, though i'm not even sure what i'll use it for - it's just *that* good that I'm certain I'll find a way to expand my musical listening enjoyment with it.
After researching a bit, I decided the A2's looked like the best speakers for the price on the market. After receiving them and listening to them for a week, I have not a single doubt. These are my favorite speakers I've ever owned. Keep up the good work!
The "best" speakers I've ever owned were the Bose Companion 2s that I just replaced with your A2s. After listening to them for ten seconds I looked up, smiled, and said aloud: "Now that's how music is supposed to sound!".
Your speakers are mind blowing... thank you guys... great amazing work....
My A5' s are hooked up to my living room computer and they are great for filling that medium size room. I know that you guys have gotten all sorts of good press, but from an everyday consumer: thanks and rock on.
I bought a pair of A5+ in Bamboo from you guys at Axpona in Atlanta and I love them! I own Linn Tukans that are actively bi-amped by Linn LK100 power amps and the Audioengine 5+ speakers rival that sound.
Apparently it's not too much to ask for a pair of speakers that just look like speakers, not tentacles, odd orbs, or other ghastly 'designer' products. They're minimalist, using nice materials - there's nothing excessive about them. You guys just get it. Even the packaging, with the cloth pouches, made me smile. There's obviously a lot of thought and care that went into everything.
It's me again....I got so wrapped up complimenting you on the aesthetics, so I'll keep it short and sweet for the most important bit - they sound better than anything else out there in the same product class. You guys win. There's nothing else to say.
Am writing this email as an appreciation to the wonderful product you have made in your A2 speakers. I am absolutely going Gaga about them and love them to core. Of course, I am hardly an expert in sound and given the wonderful reviews you already have, my email is just a drop in the ocean but still I had to do my bit to laud your efforts for delivering world class speakers.
Tuesday night, after they arrived, we sat in our living room for 4 hours listening to music and saying back and forth to each other, "I can't believe how good these speakers sound!" Sincerely, your newest Audioengine fan...
I just bought your W1 Premium Wireless Audio adapter. Your device Blows me away. I am going to buy for all my friends and give the device to them also. This product is so Cool! WOW! I love this thing.
- Don S
Thanks again for the great product....wish I was there to take your group to lunch.
I recently purchased a set of A5+ speakers. They are incredible and I am very happy with them! From Reggae to Grunge they provide amazing quality sound. I just bought an apple airport express and could not be happier with my set up :) I just wanted to shoot you guys an email to say thanks!
Just received my A2s today and let me just say WOW totally satisfied so far....the build and sound was everything you and all of the online/magazine reviewers said. Very happy with my purchase!!!! Thanks guys for quick order processing and customer service, top notch guys!
Have just installed your A2 speakers alongside my iMac (fed via a Firestone DAC) and they are fantastic - they are giving my main music system a run for its money!
I have the A2 speakers, and what superb quality they are. Forget B&W, etc, these are the perfect price and outperform anything I have heard for the price.
Just wanted to tell you I am totally impressed with these speakers. I just built a new computer and connected these A5's to a Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD sound card....wow!! Lots of fun.
This is the second pair of these amazing speakers that I've bought in the past 2 weeks. My son came into town from LA, heard the speakers and was as amazed as me. I'm buying this second pair as a gift for him. He intends to use them to mix tracks recorded with Logic on his iMac.
- Nick C
I have a pair of the A2 speakers and holy crap, they are incredible. Best sounding speakers of any size I have ever heard. Really unbelievable.
Thank you very much for these speakers, I never knew music could sound this good.
I sincerely hope this message can get to those that have made a difference. I just picked up my new A5's. I have been listening non-stop for four hours of my favourite tunage and they are a sheer pleasure. They are providers of ear candy bliss.
I simply do not have the time to get into audiophile techno talk but I do know what sounds good and can perceive the depth and quality of these speakers without a doubt. This means I can sit back and enjoy my music soooooo much more.
I recvd. my A2 speakers today! Wow........whatta punch........I love them, they made my weekend!!!!!!!!!! I have downsized & gone lean & mean & very zen my sound system now comprises of A2 speakers, an iPod, & Sony Vaio laptop.
I would just like to thank all of you for developing such amazing audio products. I use Pandora and Rhapsody on my PC and your A5 and W1 have made the music come alive, filling my small condo with great sound tight clean bass, no overly sharp highs, perfect mid range just great non-fatiguing sound, from low volume to loud.
In less than five minutes I had opened the package, connected the W1 devices and am now listening to my FLAC library wirelessly via my SqueezeBox Touch. You are to be commended for your quality products and service. It sets a new best of breed for me.
I just wanted to send my kudos and thanks for my A5's and S8. These speakers now join my Grado headphones as the best pieces of audio equipment I have ever owned!!!!
The A5 is just right. I plugged in an Airport Express, turned on the speakers and enjoyed my music immediately. Within 10 minutes I ordered another pair for my family room.
I was prepared to spend 4 or 5 times what I have spent for your products, but the great reviews forced me to give you a shot and I cannot be more pleased. I don't know how you did it, but keep up the great work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been a high stereo buff for most of my life. I'm not quite sure how you guys pulled this off, but for what you charge, these speakers are astounding. And then you go ahead and add a second audio in for another device. That is just so freaking smart.
It is companies like Audioengine that make me smile. And that makes Audioengine a very special company in my book!
I know two people that have the Bose Wave Radio/CD player thats cost three time as much, and these A2's sound just as good, if not better than the Bose at a fraction of the cost - and you can post that on your website! Keep up the good work.
I know this is probably getting old but I want to share my enthusiasm for your speakers. Being a proud owner of Sonus Faber Grand Piano Home speakers I must say I love your drivers choice - crisp, clean, fast sounding without being overly analytical or unmusical. Kudos!
I was never able to enjoy computer sound before but now I can. So much so that I now use Amarra software and Apogee One DAC with the A5+. In a sea of over-hyped and overpriced mediocrity you have produced a fine product at an honest price and you deserve all the compliments for that.
I initially purchased A2's and was so impressed that I passed these along to my daughter and purchased the A5+. They have totally changed my view of the credibility of active loudspeakers.
I hooked up the W1 last week and it works as advertised. I have over $40,000 invested in my stereo/HT setup and this is the first product my wife was
equally excited as the W1 allowed us to get rid of the 15 meter subwoofer cable that had graced my living room floor for years. The W1 is an extremely useful and user-friendly product that I would not hesitate to recommend to others.
I bought the A5+ powered desktop speakers about a month ago and they are amazing. So now I've ordered the P4 passive bookshelf speakers for my living room. They'll be powered by an Arcam Solo integrated amp/receiver. Can't wait to hear them!
I am very glad to report that the A5 are really fantastic sounding. These speakers can hold their own compared to my other speakers such as Rogers LS3/5a and Von Schweikert VR1 driven by all tube electronics. Bottom line......I am a very satisfied customer.
I received my speakers earlier this week (shipped locally from Wilmington, how cool is that!) and have to say they are amazing! I just wanted to say thank you for engineering such a fantastic product, it's unfortunately very rare these days. I will certainly be recommending you to my friends and colleagues.
Crystal clear audio. Plenty of power. I am hearing things in songs I know by heart that I never heard before. That's fun!
I just ordered a second pair of A2's. Great product! I am amazed at the transparency, soundstaging and - more importantly - their organic "rightness".
I just, yesterday, received and installed my new A2 speakers. Just had to tell you... I can' believe what an incredible set of speakers they are. Anyhow, thanks so much for producing fine, but affordable, sound for those of us for whom music is life's passion but budget is life's reality.
I've just hooked up my A2s and the sound is incredible! Working from home just got even better. I'm glad I did some research before just going to Best Buy and getting whatever. Sound quality reminds me of B&W!
- Joe T
Just going thru old receipts and I happened upon a receipt for my A2s. They turn 1 yr old today. Just thought I would write and tell you how phenomenal these things are and that I think I have gotten 4 other people to buy a set. Can't say enough good about them!
Just letting you know that my W1 hook-up was a breeze. I plugged the sender into my Samsung 7000 TV then hooked the W1 receiver to my stereo across the room and it works fine. Watched a movie last night and it sounded awesome. Great product - very pleased. Thanks
Just received my A2 speakers. I'm very impressed with the product and packaging. Top notch. Head and shoulders above typical computer speakers. Thanks again for a great design and product!
I've never heard a speaker sound better in my house. I feel like they're tiny little concert speakers. All my music has this right next to you sound I've come to associate my speakers with that I cannot hear elsewhere. I love em and eventually will be buying more pairs to create a 5.1 system.
The set is amazing, the sound is incredible and it is a pleasure to the listen to the angelic like sound that they deliver. I wanted to thank you again for all your help. Best speakers I have ever owned. Keep up the good work.
As a person who has worked with the public I can attest to the fact that it can be a difficult job, and when I run into an individual who was extremely attentive and patient, I don't mind going out of my way to bring attention to it. As I sit enjoying my new A2's and write this e-mail, I have Marshall to thank.
Just a quick note to say how totally pleased I am with my A5 purchase some 6 months ago. There is no TV in my house, so the music is everything...and the A5's do such a remarkable job. I am simply amazed at the price/performance ratio, so keep up the fantastic work!!
I just wanted to inform you guys that I received my A2s. Anyone can make big speakers but it takes true engineers to get the most out of such a small size. Bose Companion 2 were ok but didn't have as much deep bass extension as A2s. I like small. Great stuff. Very pleased.
I received the A5+ speakers and they are truly extraordinary. The sound is gorgeous, full, with great definition and imaging and I can't imagine the engineering that produces the amount of bass without a sub. Audioengine makes me so happy to listen to my music again.
I have owned a number of near field speakers, Acoustic Research, Boston Acoustic, Yamaha with a receiver - and I thought all of them very good, but they all lose their sonic luster when compared to the Audioengine 5. Your company and your speakers have certainly improved my life.
S8 sub, W1 and W2 arrived in perfect condition. An iPod type unpacking experience! S8 fit and finish? Absolutely flawless and overall cosmetic quality is impeccable. And the W1 and W2? Holy crap. Easy to set up. Performance is outstanding. In short, I couldn't be more impressed. You and your team should be very proud.
After owning a pair of A2's for my Mac, I wanted the passive P4 for my stereo receiver. As usual the product was outstanding. Customer service was first class and value for money for the product unbeatable. I have raved about your products to friends and co workers from some time now. Very much like an Apple product, your speakers are simply the best I have heard at any price range.
WOW! Marshall. I just spent the day evaluating the A5 speakers configured to my vintage McIntosh Laboratories C-26 Pre-amplifier. I am stunned and astounded at the quality of your product.
I can't begin to tell you how much I like my new A2's. The sound clarity is amazing even at low volume. I was very impressed even with the quality of the packaging and especially the rapid delivery!!! I appreciate the minimalist concept and love their appearance.
I bought Bose Companion 2 speakers at Best Buy but returned them due to crappy sound. Googled powered speakers and bought Audioengine. I want to congratulate the Audioengine team for making such great speakers. It sounds cliché now but the Audioengine speakers are the best 2.0 speakers I have ever listened to.
I spent hours in an Apple store auditioning speakers (Bose, Altec Lansing, JBL etc) but left unimpressed and disillusioned. My wife suggested I consult our local audio dealer (Audio Consultants of Evanston, IL). 10 minutes with the A2 and I was sold. What a revelation! My iMac and I am so happy you are producing a quality product for those looking for a true high fidelity experience in a small desktop system.
I bought the A2 and they're just fantastic. While most other companies are concerned with making over-designed, ugly speakers that sound terrible and cost a fortune, what a delight it is to find a company that's concerned with just making good speakers.
- Bishop P
I'm an ex-musician and audiophile of many years. I am completely and utterly stunned by your product. I've been feeding the A2s with a Benchmark DAC1 and after a few hours of initial breakin ALL my preconceptions about how one achieves decent sound quality and a satisfying musical experience have been obliterated. Thanx so much for making this kind of experience available for so little money. Wow!!!!!!!!!!
I am really happy with my new A5s. They sound better than the Bang & Olufsen CD player I retired when I copied all my disks to my computer.
- Barry C.
These A5's are magnificent! I have NEVER heard anything so robust, sonically accurate and articulate as the A5's - for the price! I have B&W 802D x 5 in my theater and will eagerly listen to these in my office for excellent 2.0 "Hi-Fi" w/o hesitation!
As a professional musician/band director/audiophile, let me congratulate you on your fine products. I already have a pair of A2's on my home iMac, but I just finished testing my recent order of the A5's, AS8, and W-1, which provides a simple and perfect wireless connection between the A5's and AS8.
- Ronald J
Highest recommendation! All work perfectly, instant sync. I'm especially impressed with the speakers: great tone and timbre (this from someone who uses Magnepan in main system). Terrific bedroom system. My wife loves them. Great highs, impressive bass for small enclosure.
Just got my A2's (and stands). One word: exceptional. Sound is tight, well-defined. great bass response for such small speakers. Mostly, wanted clarity and definition, and these have that.
Thank you for your fine product. Your speakers sound exacly as promised. I cannot describe the feeling of listening to music as if for the first time. It brought tears to my eyes. If someone is considering buying these speakers, don't wait because you're neglecting your ears and you're missing out.
Wow - this is totally awesome! I set up the W1 and A5 in minutes, GREAT sound - and zillions of music choices from my Mac - just unbelievable. What amazing products!
Thanks for finally making a product that us dedicated audiophiles can use at our desktop! I just received my A2s today and am extremely impressed with the sound (quantity and quality) that manages to come from such a small speakers.
Well, I bought the A5s! They arrived today. Mine and my 2 sons jaws just dropped on cranking up Call of Duty 4. As you said, they fill the room. We heard everything - the rain drops, heartbeats.... Your product packaging and accessories are top rate.
I purchased a pair of A2 speakers 3 months ago from a Mac store in Portland. I'm a baby boomer who used to experience quality and workmanship in
products and am pleased to find that the A2 are a welcome return to the old standand I grew up with. (They're ass'kickin')
Had these for a couple of days now and just love them. I had a Logitech Z5500 system for 3 years and while it had the volume, it seemed harsh on my ears. I decided to dump them and take a leap of faith and get the A5's. Much better.
Am I a satisfied customer? You bet. I am already planning another set of A5's for my bedroom via Airport Express and a pair for my media center in the living room. Thanks Audioengine for making a great product in a world of mediocre offerings.
I have had the white Model 5 speakers for about 3 years now and am so so happy with them. I opened a new business and put in the bamboo speakers. They are so lovely! I love your product.
My W1 and A5s are in a word AWESOME! The range of the W1 is incredible. I have a 1 bedroom with a loft above the bedroom. The W1 works from the bedroom and the loft into the living room. The W1 works great with my regular stereo. The best purchase I've made in a long time!
After 6 months of using bamboo A5, I can totally tell you that it rocks big time. I am a big fan your speakers. I value the time you spent at creating them. I used to have Bose companion 5. I also own a pair of Harman-Kardon Soundstick II. Nothing beats the Audioengine 5. Not even close.
Your speakers rock my socks. I don't know who to send this to, so pretty please make sure this gets to the right dude at your company. And thanks again. You all deserve a raise.
- Little D
Why do I have such a hard-on for these speakers? Because they are the one thing that has made me forget about all the rest of the misery in the world. For only 20 minutes a day, I can sit and be acoustically massaged and made content. All thanks to your beautiful little Audioengine babies. I will name my firstborn after your next speaker series.
Just unpacked my new A5's and I wanted you to know what a good experience it was. The packaging and set up guide etc all very good. And then I plugged them in and have a big smile on my face. I am now hooked.
I ran across the A2 on Head-fi.com. Words fail to describe how awesome these speakers are, I cannot thank you enough for making such a great quality product.
- Andy F
I hooked up my Audioengine 2 speakers and S8 subwoofer and I have to say that I'm 100% satisfied. The S8 compliments the A2s in a way that I wouldn't be able to use the A2's without the S8. Nice job guys! Now this is what money is for!
- Daniel V
I've been using some A5's for 6 months now. I love the sound but mostly the design. Like all good designs they seem so simple, they have everything you need but nothing more. Weird, I usually bitch and moan about stuff.
Pardon my language, but is it acceptable to suggest that your A5s are pure kick-ass right out of the box? I've played these non-stop for days and every passing minute I keep punching myself in the face for even thinking of buying Bose.
I recently became a VERY happy owner of a pair of AudioEngine 5s that are gleefully anchoring the corners of my desk! Thank you for turning me on this excellent product.
Great product. Really really impressive price/performance.
Just received my pair of Audioengine 2 speakers... wow! I have been a hi-fi enthusiast for quite a while but I have never heard any audio product that had such an immediate impact on me before! Truly amazing! Thank you for getting me off the hi-fi upgrading treadmill.
I want to start with WOW! I truly love my A5's! They surpassed what I expected and as of now are used over my $1k+ 5.1 system, so kudos on a job well done.
Hi! I just received my A2 speakers today- wow!! I love their sleek minimal design and easy set up. But most importantly- they sound incredible!!
Your A5 bookshelf speakers are INCREDIBLE! My brother, who produces music, has gone through many pairs of studio monitors costing upwards of $700 and he swears mine sound better than anything he has heard.
I purchased a pair of Audioengine 2 two weeks ago. WOW!! I am amazed with the quality and size of the sound these little speakers produce. The first time I heard them I was blown away. Awesome product.
Just to say a big thank you for producing a superb product (A5). I don't get excited about things easily, and I have never sent feedback to a manufacturer before. It is so rare that you purchase something and feel so happy and satisfied.
I received the A2 speakers Saturday. What a joy!!!. The sound is what I have been looking for. I love your product and have told everyone.
I received the A5 speakers this morning. I am sure you have heard this before but I was expecting to be blown away from the reviews I have read. The reviews cannot possibly put into word how incredibly awesome these things sound!
These A2 speakers are amazing for their size. I was blown away by the crisp clearness of sound...I have to say very close to the quality of my $600 Epos! Nice job. The care and concern for the overall package is way above any other product I have ever bought.
Over the yeas I've owned some pretty decent equipment, e.g. Krell amplifier, Quad electrostatic speakers, etc. But I'm simply amazed by the sound quality of the A5.
These speakers are GREAT! My hour lunch became closer to 2 hours! I couldn't leave the house listening to these speakers!
WOW! I can't stop smiling... What a remarkable, exciting and insanely dynamic speaker system you have created. The numerous accolades you have earned are very well deserved indeed.
The Audioengine's are hands-down the best powered speakers I have, besting the not shabby Aego Ms and the quirky Monsoons.
- Scott A
I just received my W1… you just saved my day (maybe life) for creating the coolest streaming DJ solution with super sound and no cables.
I don't think I've ever written a review on anything, but your speakers are incredible, even more so for the price. The clarity, bass, and imaging make it a lot of fun to really listen to music again.
- John S
I just got the A5 speakers and I must say they sound awesome. I see how you guys have a hard time explaining how the bass is all there without being over the top. I've never owned a quality pair of speakers like this before and I can't tell you how happy I am with the purchase.
I had heard the A2's at Audio Symphony in San Francisco and read a bunch of reviews on the A5, so figured I'd treat myself right. I am so happy with my purchase.
I listened to a pair of A5's last week and I am very impressed… BLOWN AWAY is more like it. I compared them to similar items from M-Audio and Mackie and the A5's appear to offer the best solution in this price range.
After some research and reading countless reviews I thought I'd take a chance on your W1 Wireless Audio Adapter and wow, I'm glad I did. What a pleasure it is to purchase a product that not only performs as advertised, but also performs as stated in said reviews.
- James M
I'm using the W1 to play music through my laptop and home theater gear and set up couldn't have been easier. What (the W1) has revealed to me sounds like wired audio, NOT wireless. Fantastic.
I'm writing to let you know that we really enjoy your speakers. I hooked them up to my TV and also iTunes through Airport Express. They sound better then my Bose system.
I am not often impressed by stereo equipment I can actually afford but I have to say right out of the box these speakers are amazing. At this price point and at 4 times as much, I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
I bought a pair of A2 last week from Echo Audio in Portland and these are some of the most awesome speakers I've heard in a long time. Your product makes me excited about listening to music again!
I was able to order and receive a pair of Audioengine 5's from Hi Def Lifestyle and wanted to tell you your speakers are great… one of the best purchases I've ever made.
- Jamie H
I just wanted to say I purchased a pair of your A5 speakers and hands down they are the best pair of bookshelf/PC speakers I have heard in a long time. They are well worth every penny I spent. I can't wait to purchase the S8 subwoofer to go with them. Keep up the good work.
I wanted to let you know that my recent purchase of a pair of the A2 speakers was a great choice. The sound quality is superb, connecting them to my computer was easy (good directions) and I love the fact that they are self-powered. Great engineering! Great price!
A couple of months ago I purchased a pair of A5 for my IPod... and just one day after they arrived my whole stereo went into boxes and up to the attic. Your stuff is just great!!

My Audioengine A5 speakers arrived today. I couldn't be more pleased with the sound of these great little speakers. They sound awesome! I have varied tastes in music, from classical to hard rock and these speakers handle it all with amazing clarity and presence.
Some of my colleagues bought the Bose MusicMonitor. Bad decision. If you're looking to spend that much money ($350-400) for computer speakers, check out Audioengine 5 - nothing comes close, and the Bose MusicMonitor isn't even in the same galaxy.
The A2's arrived safe & sound. They work perfectly and sound incredible for such small little boxes. Nice touches on the packing and apparent care & thought that has gone into this product. I'll be checking out other Audioengine products in the future.
I just received my Audioengine 2's and I must say...wow. Upon connecting my MP3 player, it was astounding. The imaging just to the sides of my computer monitor is wonderful. Congratulations on an excellent product and I'll be sure to pass the good news all around.
I've never taken the time to write a company about their product unless I have a problem with it, but I'm making an exception in this case. I took the leap and purchased the Audioengine 5 speakers to replace my Klipsch setup on my computer. Thanks for making a great product and selling it for an unbeatable price.
Heard about Audioengine at Huppins HIFi. A salesman recommended them over Bose and I agreed that the Audioengine sounded better.

This is my second set of Audioengine speakers. I first read about them in a review in PC Magazine. I was going to buy the new Bose speakers, but your price (and audio quality) beats Bose.
Incredible! I received my pair of A2's on Wednesday and my jaw is still dragging on the floor. Simply amazing. I listened to a few LP's through a Grado Sonata and DIY phone pre and it just blew me away. I can only imagine how it's bigger brother sounds.

I recently traded up from the A2 speakers to the A5+ and just wanted to express my satisfaction. I am astonished that you could get these little speakers to make music so enjoyable with such an integrated presentation and dynamic range, at least anywhere near this price-point.

I just bought a pair of the A5's yesterday, and all I can say is WOW!!!! These are little audiophile giants, from Beethoven to Zeppelin.
Just got my pair today from Onecall. Bloody hell, these little things are awesome. Just a quick note to say kudos guys. What an incredible product!

I've had my A2s for a couple of months now, connected to my Apple lossless iTunes library via a Fubar III USB DAC, and couldn't be happier. I feel like I have my own personal sound studio in my office. At any volume they offer fantastic clarity and, even some good sound staging from my desk.

I found you guys at a forum I hang out at. One guy has already bought the Audioengine 5's and there are several other people there talking about them. Gotta give you guys props. Not many companies around like yours for sure. THEY SOUND INCREDIBLE!!!
Yesterday I get a pair of the Audioengine 5, and it is impressive what this small speakers are able to perform. I would like to write more about the speakers, but I don't know the English words to describe the A5 :-). Thank you very much for this speaker.
- André S
I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying my speakers! You guys are the future of audio. This product is what I have been looking for for a long time. I have been auditioning speakers for well over 20 yrs using Steely Dan because of their tight production mix, especially the bass and crisp snare drum. My best audio purchase since I bought my iPod.

I purchased a pair of Audioengine 2 speakers from you last week. Words can't describe how thrilled I am with the spectacularly accurate audio, along with the tasteful, low key appearance of these speakers. I have them connected to a Squeezebox Duet and the audio quality approaches that of my Arcam amplifier and Heybrook HB2 speakers.

Aloha, your speakers arrived today and I have hooked them up to my computer. They are wonderful - sound is incredible. I learned that a definition of quality, either product or service, is when you exceed a customer's expectation - and you have definitely done that. The packaging, bags, wires, and especially your speakers. Incredible.
- Jacob P
I read about your great little speakers in Home Theater so I went online to do some research and was very impressed with what I found. EVERYBODY loves your speakers, and that to me is a great selling point. Thanks for your dedication to making great computer speakers, keep up the good work. I love music again.

I just received my A2s this morning. THESE SPEAKERS KICK A**!!! All the reviews I read were true. I am using the A2s in my home office with my laptop. I've been looking for small desktop speakers for a long time. These fit the bill and have incredible sound.
OK, I just received my new A2's and have been listening for a couple of hours. They are getting better as they start the break in process. This was a wonderful investment; I now have music in the office I can actually listen to. Thanks guys for a great product!
I bought the A5's some months ago and I'm still blown away. These A5's deliver in spades. They're worth every penny and more… You should hear Loreena McKennett's "Mystics' Dream", the bass is dynamite and her voice is clear as a bell. Just wanted to thank you guys for creating these little beauties!
I just received my Audioengine speakers. I bought these speakers simply based on the reviews that compared them to all the speaker systems that I HAVE been able to listen to in person, and I'm still blown away. Thank you for such an amazing product at such a killer price!

I heard of your speakers through a friend of mine who highly recommended them. He is an audiophile who owns a pair of B&W high-end speakers and when he mentioned he really likes these, I knew they must be good. Also, the web-reviews I've seen all say nothing but great things.
I couldn't see where I should write a review for the A2, but wanted to give you "mad props". When I hooked it up to my A2s, I swear angels sang… this blows away anything under a grand that's designed for small rooms. The big test I gave it was the 10,000 Maniacs Unplugged CD, and this setup may be nearly as good as having been at the concert itself.

You could not have devised a better product than the A2s to help new customers transition from mid-fi big-box garbage to true high-fidelity audio. As a person in public relations, I know how to spread news, and I will spread nothing but good news about your product.
- Matt T
WOW is all I can say! After about 24 hours of break in so far, the A5's sound incredible, and look great (almost retro) in their bamboo enclosures. By far the most analog and full sound I've ever heard from an iPod, an iPhone, or a computer...

I've been fed up with my computer speakers for some time now. I read Robert Reina's review of these speakers in Stereophile and was very impressed. I spent a considerable amount of time looking for a product like this – you guys are filling a crucial gap in the industry.
WOW! All I can say is WOW. Santa (aka FedEx) delivered my A5s and I cannot believe the sound that is coming out of these speakers. To make a long story short, I sold ALL my equipment; Bel Canto, Rega, Totem, and Rotel - and pretty much figured my days of quality audio were over. Thanks for allowing me to still have high quality sound without having to break the bank.
I bought a pair of A5s for my new wireless set-up in my house, playing iTunes audio from computer to different speakers in different places in my house. First, I have to tell you: I LOVE the A5s. They sound spectacular, from bottom to top, their response is fantastic, and they look great too. Excellent product, and I don't say that lightly.

I was shopping for home theater speakers in San Francisco from a store called Audio Vision SF. At that time, I was also looking for a good overachieving pair of speakers for use in either the bedroom or study and the salesman showed me the Audioengine 2. I was impressed by the clean and powerful sound from such a small speaker! Thanks again and keep making high value awesome sounding giant killing speakers.
I mentioned to my wife that I would like a pair of your "A2" powered speakers. Well, I just hooked them up to the computer and I am absolutely blown away. I feel a little funny because I'm sitting here at the computer, listening to uncompressed music like I was in the music room with the Audio Research system. Crazy… Nice job guys.

Although I just placed an order for the 2's (the Mrs. is finally going to get some decent sound for her desktop), I wanted to tell you how impressed I am with your operation. Your website is well done, your product design is brilliant, and of course your pricing is unbelievable!
I got my A2's Wed. night and haven't stopped listening since (except for going to work!). They absolutely blow away the $250 Bose Companion 3's I replaced. I am very pleased with the purchase.
Thought you might like to know that I just auditioned the new desktop speakers from Bose - two tiny boxes for the INSANE price of $400! Bottom line: your A2 speakers have much better bass and mids, the Bose have slightly better highs. Conclusion: the Bose go back, your speakers stay.
(The A2's) have assumed the prestigious position as my office speakers! I listen to music for 8-14 hours a day sometimes. They trumped my previous setup consisting of a great little pair of Mission speakers and an old-school Denon receiver.
I love the Audioengine A2! I am a band director and have been a long time audiophile and do a lot of recording of bands, orchestras and choir. When I first setup the speakers I was struck by the tone qualities of all the instruments. They were very close to what I heard on stage while conducting.
Today is the day I plan to mark on my calendar as one of those hard to believe but true events. Why you may ask? Well, it is because today I received your speakers.
