MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – October 1, 2011 – Audioengine today announced the release of the Audioengine 5+ Premium Powered Speaker System.
The Audioengine 5+ (A5+) active speakers deliver audiophile-quality sound and features at a price that continues to set the standard for affordable high-quality audio. Connect your iDevice, computer, TV, or any other audio component for great stereo sound.
The goal of Audioengine is to give our customers a high-end listening experience at affordable prices with easy to use, high-quality products. The Audioengine 5 powered speaker system was Audioengine’s flagship model and has become a best seller, winning numerous awards along the way. The new A5+ incorporates the same award-winning design as the original A5 but includes customer-requested upgrades and features.
With custom Kevlar woofers, silk tweeters, and hand-built cabinets, the Audioengine 5+ includes a remote control, dual audio inputs and enhanced thermal management. You can charge your iDevice via the USB power port and add a subwoofer to the variable output. Connect Audioengine 5+ to your computer’s headphone jack or pair with a USB DAC to achieve an even higher level of sound quality. The Audioengine 5+ works with any computer and there’s no software to install or settings to change.
Built-in power amplifiers save space and eliminate the need to connect the Audioengine 5+ to a stereo receiver or external power amp. Simply plug the left speaker into an AC outlet and connect the included speaker wire from the left to right speaker. With superior stereo separation and incredible imaging, A5+ has a considerable sonic advantage over boomboxes.
“The Audioengine 5+ Premium Powered Speaker System continues over 5 years of audiophile-quality product engineering and includes new features at an attractive price.” said Brett Bargenquast, Audioengine Sales Director. “The A5+ paired with other Audioengine wireless solutions and digital converters gives you superior sound from your computer to anywhere in your home.”
