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...

Wonderful Little Speakers!

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.

                      I wasn't sure about getting this or B2+ which has Bluetooth. I preferred this one because of my desk setup. Good news is that it DAC usb input works with recent Android versions when connected with a Micro USB OTG. It is supposed to work with iPhone as well but only certain cables work because of Apple's xenophobic policies.

                            I bought a pari of A5+, A2+ and Bose speakers to try them out side by the.
                            Kept the A2+. Very clean, perfectly balanced sound. Much warmer than the Bose. The Bose sounded like the music was in a tunnel when comparing them.
                            For our living room which is probably 10x15 they are perfect. I mean, if you want to throw a raging party where you can't hear your voice then then A5+ will do a better job, but the A2's get plenty loud and don't distort.
                            The more you play them the better the sound gets. They do need a bit of "breaking in".
                            It feels like a very high quality product. Even down to the way each speakers comes in a velvety sack fro protection.
                            Couldn't be happier with the sound these produce.
                            (I have them set up attached to my airport express to use as an airplay set of speakers...NOT as computer speakers)

                            I bought these speakers for a turntable setup. I wanted something small enough that I could quietly listen to my music while not bothering my roommates late at night. After ordering, I began to worry about these not being loud enough. After combining them with a phono preamp, I was relieved to find that these are good speakers for my needs and can actually be turned up way louder then I expected.

                            Only downsides are the speaker risers are sold seperately and are kinda pricey for what they are (just pieces of plastic to cut out any speaker vibration). Also some people have reviewed them and have said that it lacks bass, I did not notice this but I am also not a audiophile.

                            All in All, I am very happy with purchasing these bad boys.

                              Small but not lacking in power, they have greatly enhanced the sound experience from my computer.

                              These speakers sing like Barbara Streisand. Well worth the price. Perfectly sized too.
