I was hoping that I would not think that these are that great and then I could send them back and be smug with either the Bose Companion 2 series III or the Creative T30 wireless. The less expensive speakers sounded great - that is until I received the A2+ speakers. I set them all up side by side and could switch between them, well darn it - the A2+'s were so realistic and clean with a very good bass for their size that I was blown away and returned the other 2 sets of speakers. My setup is a 15" Macbook Pro in a henge aluminum dock and I connect the speakers via the usb port on my desktop dell monitor - it all looks very clean, not wireless clean, but pretty darn nice. Anyway, I have to admit these are well worth the price of admission...

I use these to listen to digital music through iTunes and GarageBand.Sound is good, clear. Pretty good volume. Decent bass for such small speakers. quality constructionFor this price you should have a headphone jack plugin and some equalizer controls to assist in compensating for speaker placement. I have $ computer speakers that have equalizer controls!

Just the Right Size and Reasonable Sound

By B&H Customer

from Southern California

Verified Buyer

Comments about A2+ 2.75" Powered Desktop Speakers (Black):

The speakers are being used as computer speakers having purchased them to replace a cheaper set that had a subwoofer but where the speakers malfunctioned. The mid- and higher ranges are much clearer on these speakers. The slight weakness in the lower ranges makes a small difference in overall aural experience but given that I listen mostly to classical, the general clarity provides a reasonable offset.

The set up instructions should show how to hook up a sub-woofer, when and if ever I wanted to do that.

Very good small speaker system

By Howard

Comments about A2+ 2.75" Powered Desktop Speakers (Black):

Excellent desktop computer speaker system. Compact, sounds great. Would sound better with a subwoofer, but then it would be too big for a desktop. I highly recommend Audioengine's "Perfect Desktop Stand" with the speakers, both for alignment and to put a solid rubber protection between them and the desktop.

Comments about A2+ 2.75" Powered Desktop Speakers (White):

Audioengine has a reputation of a very high quality studio monitor speakers. A2+ are no exception. I own the original A2 and when the need arise for additional set, there was no sought in my mind what to buy.
The newer version of A2 adds a very potent DAC to a legendary speakers.
It is hard to believe, such a small speakers can produce such deep, warm and wide sound stage

Wonderful Little Speakers!

By Baper

Verified Buyer

Comments about A2+ 2.75" Powered Desktop Speakers (Black):

When I first received these speakers, I confess, I wasn't too impressed. But many reviewers said there was a break in period, so I tried to be patient. Sure enough, the more I played them the better they begin to sound, and now I love listening to music through them. I haven't turned on my Bluetooth speakers for quite a while. I would advise buying the small speaker stands also. They enhance the listening experience. In addition to sounding good, the quality of these speakers is first class. I would highly recommend them.

These are small speakers with a very large sound. I bought them for a turntable that did not have any sound coming out of the turntable so the sound comes out of the speakers and the volume control is on the speakers.

        they are connected to my PC. I use it to listen to all my music. For the price range they are good quality including the base sound.

        the installation does require use of screw driver event though directions indicate that you could just use your fingers. However, it is a very very easy installation process

        Comments about A2+ 2.75" Powered Desktop Speakers (Black):

        The reviews don't lie. If you're looking for a pair of desktop speakers that provide superb sound qualities in a small package, don't look any further. These speakers provide clear and warm sound reproduction that rivals, if not beat, many speakers that have significantly larger drivers. Depending on your music preference (hip hop/trap/D&B,etc) lows might not give you what you need, but that shouldn't be as of a surprise coming from 2 3/4" woofers. That's why they have a separate sub for purchase. Nevertheless, it is by far the best desktop speakers I've heard (previously had logitech/creative labs/HK soundsticks).

                  There are computer speakers and there are "real" speakers. These are "real" speakers for your computer. Heavy cables. Quality hardware. Superb packaging. You can tell you have bought something of great quality just from the experience of opening the box, unwrapping them, and setting them up.

                  And then, you turn them on and they look and sound great. I am very happy with this purchase.
