The system consists of an active left speaker and a passive right speaker, which are connected together via full-size gold-plated 5-way binding posts.

Each cabinet contains a custom 5" Kevlar woofer and a 0.8" silk tweeter to provide clear, detailed audio with a wide frequency response and excellent realism.

The speakers are also compatible with Audioengine wireless audio adapters, and Apple's Airport Express and AirPlay.

The active speaker also has a stereo RCA output so you can connect an additional device, such as a subwoofer. A USB power/charging output allows you to charge small devices such as MP3 players or mobile phones while you listen to music. A convenient front-panel volume control lets you make quick adjustments. Protection circuitry includes output current limiting, thermal over-temperature, power on/off transient protection, and a replaceable external main fuse for lasting reliability. The speakers are also magnetically shielded for safe use near video monitors and other electronics.

The bottom of each speaker has a high-density isolation pad to reduce vibrations and reflections when used on a table or desk. There are also 1/4"-20 inserts so you can mount the speakers on stands. The system has a selectable operating voltage for international use. A convenient remote control is included for controlling the speakers. You are also provided with connection cables and carrying bags for quick and easy setup.

"The best...Love them...They lack some bass output as other speakers of this size can do much more bass, however, it is not a true sound... so I would rather have these that are accurate and then get the bass from the sub....Also I upgrade all the cables for RCA I used AudioQuest and Speaker Wire I got 10' of Canare 4s11 everything works great but sound quality could be a bit but they said something about 40-50 Hours of burn in time so I hope after some time I can hear some crisp mids and highs so on"
