Questions & Answers
Just how easy is it to set up the HD6?
It's pretty easy! 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 powered speaker to the right passive speaker using the included upgraded speaker wire with banana plug tips. Finally, plug in your music (cell phone, turntable, computer, laptop, etc.) with the supplied cables or via Bluetooth and you're ready to go!

Is the HD6 designed only for use with Bluetooth devices?
Even though the HD6 has a built-in Bluetooth receiver, the HD6 are extremely versatile and can be used with a number of different devices, both digital and analog. There two analog inputs, a mini-stereo and RCA input, on the rear panel so you can directly connect any product with a line-level/preamp audio output, such as a turntable. The HD6s also have an optical input that utilizes the speakers' built-in DAC, so any source that has a digital optical output can be used directly with the speakers, such as the optical output of your television or computer.
What's the difference between the HD6 and the A5+?
The HD6 include some pretty significant upgrades over the A5+s. Among these are:
- Larger redesigned woofer with die-cast aluminum frame for extended bass response with fast dynamics
- New larger custom 1” tweeter for an open and realistic high end and an extraordinary soundstage
- Thicker, low-resonance cabinet
- Upgraded crossover components
In addition to the performance related upgrades, the HD6s also feature:
- Bluetooth aptX and digital optical inputs
- Real wood-veneer cabinet finish options
- Removable magnetic grills
- Solid aluminum remote control
If HD6 is paired and connected to my phone, do I need to do anything else to play music?
Once your HD6 is paired and connected, then open any app (iTunes, Spotify, Amarra, etc.) - or online players such as Youtube - and it will automatically play your music through Bluetooth once you've selected what you want to hear.
Do I need to install any special software apps or drivers for the HD6?
No extra software or drivers are needed. The HD6 is compatible with any device that supports Bluetooth, and the A2DP profile for streaming stereo audio. This includes most smartphones, tablets, and computers.
How would I connect a subwoofer to the HD6 speakers?
For starters, you will need to use a powered subwoofer with analog inputs (either RCA or 3.5mm). Simply connect the subwoofer to the RCA outputs found on the back of the HD6 speakers. If your subwoofer only has a 3.5mm input, you could pick up a 3.5mm to 2-Male RCA Adapter cable to bridge the connection between your subwoofer and the HD6 speakers.

What speaker stands work well with the HD6?
The HD6s are slightly too big for our DS1 desktop stand, so we wouldn't really recommend them with the speakers. We've been using the IsoAcoustics as desktop stands for the HD6 and they've been working pretty well. Here's some information about them:
I have an Android phone that includes an IR transmitter. Can I use my phone to control the A5+s/HD6s?
Yes! We've been notified that the Android App ZappIR supports the A5+s, so if you have a phone with an IR blaster like the HTC One or the Samsung Galaxy S4 you can use the App to raise or lower the volume of your A5+s or HD6s with your phone!
What if my source doesn't support aptX? Can I still use HD6 and if so, how will it sound?
You can absolutely still use the HD6 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.
Some people want to upgrade the audio on their TV's but aren't necessarily interested in surround sound. Can I hook up Audioengine speakers to my TV instead of buying a surround sound system or soundbar?
Audioengine speakers can be easily connected to your TV set as long as there are analog outputs available. Any of our speakers will provide a greatly enhanced TV audio experience with a wider soundstage and better imaging than most sound bars.
Do Audioengine speakers have an auto-sleep, idle, or auto-power-off function? Can I leave them on all the time?
Yes they do! They are equipped with a power-saving circuit that turns off the speaker's final stage amp. This idle mode activates right after you stop playing music. Due to this power-saving function, it's perfectly fine for the speakers to stay on all the time!
Can I connect Alexa to my wireless Audioengine speakers?
Absolutely! To do so:
- Open the Alexa App on your smartphone or tablet (Apple link | Google Play Link)
- Tap the “Devices” icon and select the Echo/Alexa device you want to connect to speakers
- Select “Bluetooth Devices”
- Select “Pair New Device”
- Find your Audioengine wireless speaker on the list of available Bluetooth devices, and select it
Can I use Audioengine speakers with an existing Sonos setup?
Are Audioengine products compatible with Bluetooth 5.0?
Yes! We incorporate all the relevant functions and features from Bluetooth 5.0 that apply to our products! These features include; extended range, low latency (so that video and audio sync properly), as well as higher level aptX-HD, aptX, and AAC codecs (with the exception of our 512 portable speaker which supports SBC only). Keep in mind that the capability of the source is what controls the Bluetooth experience.
If I connect my turntable to Audioengine speakers, do I need a phono preamp? Or can I simply connect the turntable directly to the analog input?
All turntables require a phono preamp stage before connecting to Audioengine speakers. Many turntables have this built-in , while others do not and would require an external phono preamp. Check the turntable manufacturer’s website or user manual. Some turntables may even include Bluetooth, in which case you can pair and connect them to the speakers wirelessly!
