The A5+ 5" Active 2-Way Speakers (Pair, Black) from Audioengine provide high-quality audio in a compact and stylish design, ideal for use with a variety of audio sources and devices. 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 speaker has a hand-built cabinet made from 0.75" thick MDF wood. 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 cabinets have rear-facing bass ports to extend low frequency response and tweeter waveguides to provide a wide dispersion pattern and realistic stereo imaging. The left speaker has internal Class-AB amplifiers that provide a combined system power of 150W to deliver a strong performance with low distortion. The rear panel offers 3.5mm and RCA inputs, allowing you to connect computers, MP3 players, smartphones, and any other product with 3.5mm or RCA outputs. 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.

    Audioengine A5 reviews

    A5+ 5" Active 2-Way Speakers (Pair, Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ugly, Large, Heavy and Amazing Looking for PC speakers after my Klipsch 5.1 finally died I bought some M-Audio AV40 and was underwhelmed with them. I moved them to my media center pc and bought the Audioengine A5+ for my primary computer. The Audioengine A5+ have impressive sound, solid and full bass (if one is not looking for too much bass) and bright sharp highs. The A5+ don't meet in the midrange perfectly but the other reviews tell me to give them time to break in. Physically they are the least impressive looking speaker I have had on my desk. The important part, I have no complaints with their sound and am very satisfied with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Speakers, no boxy-sound I was upgrading from a small cheap pair of speakers, and looking for something that had some solid bass without sounding boxy. The AugioEngine's are fantastic. They sound great, full of bass and very clear and crisp. Powerful too. Very happy with them. My set up is somewhat odd. A Mac going to a Denon receiver view NuForce DAC. Turntable into the same receiver. Using the RECORD OUT from the Denon to go into the AudioEngines. Works fine, thought it makes me laugh that when i'm listening to audio from the Mac I have about 5 different places to adjust the volume! The sub-woofer might be a nice addition, but so far I don't see really needing it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT!!!!!Another home run from B & H Great, clear sound top to bottom. Use it for listening to all of my digital music from pop to classical to choral and everything sounds terrific. Almost to clear as you can pick up occasional background sounds. But this is just what the doctor ordered for listening in a smaller space (approx 12 X 15) room. Volume level is irrelevant as it sounds very good at all volume levels without any booming bass, so long as you follow the directions for placement. Went for the bamboo over the other models as I really liked the appearance and the more solid wood probably adds a touch more warmth. Love my AT headphones that I was using but you just can't beat the sound quality from separated speakers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Purchasing a new iMac meant having to upgrade my ancient Dell computer speakers so music listening could be appreciated. There are many options out there, for sure; but I am coming from a listening experience that left nothing to chance, I needed something that was fulfilling. These certainly meet that need. I LOVE that you can tailor your sound with the crossover option with the bass unit. Plus the volume control on the satellites allow that blending to be extended to suit your needs. I'm sure there are less expensive units out there, and they probably would work for most people. When you want concert level.....these most likely will be just the ticket. Be careful, though, if you have neighbors who live close by!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredible These speakers are amazing! The bamboo finish makes them look so incredible, I'm really glad I spent the extra dollars to get this finish. The sound on the A5+'s is out of this world. While these aren't considered studio speakers the sound that they produce is crystal clear and is literally like hearing angels sing. You have not experienced your music and audio till you hear them on these speakers. The only down side of these speakers is of course the size. These aren't typical small speakers, you will need a good amount of real-estate on your desk to fit them. The other thing is they lack enough base without a sub-woofer. I would definitely get a sub-woofer with them if you like a lot of base. Audioengine makes one called the S8 powered subwoofer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice sound I'm pretty impressed with these speakers. They are very clean, get plenty loud when you need them to, but even at lower levels, they reproduce audio faithfully. They're a big step up from what I've used previously, and I feel that, with the A5+, I'm getting accurate enough audio to do voice-overs and audio mixing. Per the instructions, don't draw conclusions about their final sound until they've been in service for 30-50 hours. They sound great out of the box, but improve noticeably after they've broken in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't think, Just Buy Don't think any more. You will love these speakers. Thats the bottom line. I was wondering if I should get the a2 or the a5 and I couldn't be happier with the a5. These are also great because you can upgrade in the future with the addition of the subwoofer and the audio dac. Also, I got the stands with these. Audioengine should include the stands in there packaging as a standard accessory. The speakers will sounds much much better with the stands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely wonderful speakers. Like many who buy these speakers I read lots of reviews first, both in journals and on websites and from customers who bought them. Yeah, they are expensive but if one considers them high-quality bookshelf speakers rather than high-quality computer speakers they are a bargain. Yes, I am using them as computer speakers but only because I already have large, dedicated sound-system floor speakers. While the A5+ speakers are inspired by studio monitors they are more versatile. First of all, like monitors they will not improve a bad recording. I noticed right away how poorly engineered and recorded some of my favorite 60's rock songs were. And like monitors I can hear things on the recordings such as coughs, dropped objects, and percussion instruments I'd never heard before. But unlike near-field monitors they have a wider stage presence. I have my speakers about ten feet apart and could certainly separate them more without losing that presence. The sound quality is incredible - clean and crystal clear. Some buyers might consider a sub but I am perfectly happy with the bass they produce. I'd rather hear the music the way it was intended to be heard. No messing with equalizers or tone dials. Build quality is incredible. Some folks might not think the design is modern enough, but for me, the understated, matte finish and simple design is exactly what I wanted. The main speaker is heavy, but when you consider what Audioengine put in it, I am amazed it's not heavier. As for the cooling fins, I have not yet noticed them getting even slightly warm. So am I happy with this purchase? Absolutely. Love the speakers and love the service B&H provides.
