SMALL SPEAKERS BIG SOUND
FILLS ANY ROOM
Clear, full and powerful audio that fills any room. The A5+ Wireless Speakers are constructed with custom Audioengine components: aramid fiber woofers, silk tweeters, high-fidelity Premium Bluetooth aptX-HD, and built-in power amps wrapped in precision tuned, hand-crafted cabinets. Perfect for any size space.
Audioengine wireless speakers are special. Their traditional analog amplifiers sound incredible compared to lower-cost digital amps found in other mass-produced brands.
A whole new music experience, guaranteed.
Our powered speakers are an all-in-one solution with no extra amps or components needed! All you need to do is unpack the speakers, place them where you want, and then plug in the AC cord. Next, connect the included speaker wire from the active speaker to the right passive speaker. Then plug in your music (iPod, CD player, computer, etc.) with the supplied cables and you're ready to go.
The A5+ Wireless uses the same amplifier design and woofers that the A5+ Classic does, so both the A5+ Wireless and the A5+ Classic should sound virtually the same. The biggest difference between the two is the added Bluetooth receiver built into the A5+ Wireless; we’ve added a 24-bit DAC built inside that connects any bluetooth capable device (whether be your phone, tablet, or computer) to the speakers so you can stream high-quality music directly without having to use audio cables. The A5+ Wireless also features a minor cosmetic refresh; the most obvious of which includes centering the tweeters, as opposed to the offset tweeters featured on the A5+ Classic.
You can absolutely still use the A5+ Wireless and it will sound great. AptX is a high-quality Bluetooth audio codec that works really well. In addition to mandatory support for SBC, Bluetooth also includes optional support for many other codecs, like MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and AAC, all of which have their own advantages, and some of which sound very close to AptX.
There is an auxiliary input on the rear panel so you can directly connect any product with an audio output.
Once your A5+ Wireless is paired and connected then any app (iTunes, Amarra, etc.) - or online players such as Youtube - it will automatically play your music through Bluetooth.
If the left speaker is in an easy to reach location, you can certainly use the physical knob. If not though, we generally recommend setting the A5+ Wireless at around 50% and adjusting from your source device, or the remote provided with the A5+ Wireless.
The A5+ Wireless is not officially supported by any universal remotes. However, you can use a learning remote to copy the signals being sent by the A5+ Wireless's remote. Check with the manufacturer of your remote to find out if it supports learning IR codes.
Yep, an AC wall outlet near the A5+ Wireless is all you need to power the AW3 wireless Receiver. Simple.
Yes, there are 2 audio inputs on Audioengine powered speakers so connect the Airport Express to one input and the variable output from your TV into the other. Both inputs are "open" or active so you can leave 2 audio sources plugged in at the same time with no need to flip any switches.
All you would need to do is connect the variable output of the A5+ Wireless into the input of your sub using RCA cables.
Yep, an AC wall outlet near the A5+ Wireless is all you need to power the W3 or D2 wireless Receiver.
The USB port on Audioengine 5+ speakers was designed to be for power charging only, but don't despair - we've also included an audio input next to the USB port to plug your music into.
No extra software or drivers are needed. The A5+ Wireless is compatible with any device that supports Bluetooth, and the A2DP profile for streaming stereo audio. This includes most smartphones, tablets, and computers.
Some turntables will need a preamp before being connected and others may have one built-in. With that in mind, it is best to check the turntable manufacturer’s website, the turntable’s user manual, or you can even try your turntable without the preamp first to see how it operates.
Some turntables do not have a built-in preamps and as a result you will need to add an external phono preamp between your turntable and the speakers. Many turntables, however, (such as the Music Hall USB-1 or Audio Technica AT-LP120) have a built-in preamp and include a switch on the back for "line" or “phono”. For Audioengine powered speakers select "line".
If you have a Mac running Snow Leopard or later, you can create a multiple output device to accomplish this. See the link below for how-to instructions on Apple’s site: http://support.apple.com/kb/PH5178
The short answer is yes! You can use TIDAL on any compatible source device (PC, Mac, iPhone Android, etc.). The A5+ Wireless is compatible with most all of these devices as well since they almost universally also include Bluetooth.
From what we understand the devices listed on TIDAL’s website are network media servers with the TIDAL app already installed on their operating systems, that’s all. No difference in audio quality or anything else as compared to their downloadable app, just that TIDAL comes pre-installed on those devices. The only notable exception is that if you're listening to TIDAL on a computer, the only web browser that supports the full audio quality is Google Chrome.
Bluetooth has a delay of about 30ms (milliseconds) so you can watch videos and stream audio without any noticeable lag.
