Audioengine 5+ (A5+) Premium Powered Speakers

Audioengine 5+ (A5+) Premium Powered Speakers deliver audiophile-quality sound and features at a price that continues to set the standard for affordable high-quality audio. Connect your iDevice, computer, TV, or any other audio component for great stereo sound in any room.

Affordable Audio

The goal of Audioengine is to provide a high-end listening experience at affordable prices with easy to use, high-quality products. The Audioengine 5 powered speaker system was Audioengine's flagship model and has become a best seller. The new A5+ has the same award-winning signature sound as the original A5 but includes customer-requested upgrades and features.


With custom Kevlar woofers, silk dome tweeters, and hand-built cabinets, the Audioengine 5+ includes a remote control, dual audio inputs and enhanced thermal management. You can charge your iDevice via the USB power port and also add a subwoofer to the variable output. Connect Audioengine 5+ to your computer's headphone jack or pair with a USB DAC to achieve an even higher level of sound quality. The Audioengine 5+ works with any computer and there's no software to install or settings to change.

Easy Setup

Built-in power amplifiers save space and eliminate the need to connect Audioengine 5+ to a stereo receiver or external power amp. Simply plug the left speaker into an AC outlet and connect the included speaker wire from the left to right speaker. All internal components of the A5+ are tuned together, providing a more efficient system requiring less power than passive speakers and amplifiers. With superior stereo separation and incredible imaging, A5+ has a clear sonic advantage over boomboxes or all-in-one systems.

Small Speakers, Big Bass

You won't hear any enhanced super-mega-hyper-monster boomy bass from these powered speakers. As with the original A5, the low end from the A5+ is real bass, very near to the originally-recorded music. From rap to classical to movies, you'll get tight, punchy bass with an awesome growl that will make you smile - regardless of the volume level.

Hear the Difference

The Audioengine 5+ Premium Powered Speaker System delivers the audio performance and aesthetic quality expected from Audioengine and continues to close the gap between your computer music and home hi-fi. Even if you're not an audio enthusiast we guarantee your music will sound better!

Custom Built

Audioengine designs and manufactures our own tweeters, woofers, and other critical components. In other words, these are not "box built" speakers with off-the-shelf parts but custom-designed to our specifications. What we do not fabricate directly in our factory we have made to our designs (parts such as transformers, magnets, and wiring harnesses, for example). The cabinets, drivers, bass port designs, amplifiers, and crossovers are all painstakingly tuned together for each Audioengine model. This, in turn, makes for a much more efficient system that requires much less power than passive speakers and a separate integrated amplifier or similar A/V components.


Audioengine uses audiophile-quality, ferro fluid cooled silk dome tweeters with neodymium magnets. Silk tweeters hold up well under high power and the edge-driven design gives very smooth response. The woofers are Kevlar woven glass aramid composite with rubber surrounds. Kevlar is obviously very strong, which means that the woofer retains its shape when being driven at high levels. The speaker materials and construction are robust enough to stand up to some serious thrashing, so speaker grills aren't needed and they will sound and look great after many years of use.

Power Amplifiers

The amplifiers in Audioengine speakers are located in the left speaker and are a conservatively rated analog design. All components are tuned together for each model, which provides a much more efficient system requiring less power than passive speakers and separate amplifiers. Circuit boards for the power and preamp sections are mounted for maximum mechanical shock protection.

Power Transformers

Power transformers are a large contributor to the overall audio performance, especially in the low end. Again, no off-the-shelf parts. Audioengine uses gapless core toroidal transformers which have a tighter radiated magnetic field, directly translating to lower noise. They are lighter than standard, lower-cost "EI" transformers and also generate less heat.


Both drivers are directly video shielded and allow the user to place the speakers within a few inches of a video monitor. This shielding also offers protection for hard-drive digital music players.

USB Power

The Audioengine 5+ includes a 5V, 500mA USB power supply that powers later generation iPod, iPhone, and most other USB "bus-powered" devices. The USB port is for power and charging, not for data transfer or music syncing.

Clear sounds, simple/elegant setup.
Lose quality/clarity at low volumes faster than I expected.
These are indeed nice speakers, but I don't really have much to compare them to, so I can't say much.

Experience: 1 Months

- Sound quality, accuracy
- Build quality
- Dual active inputs and RCA output
- Convenient USB power
- All required cables provided, fabric bags for transport
- Banana plug compatible speaker connectors
Price considered, nothing.
Using these as a simple, compact solution for living room music listening. The inputs make it very versatile for any device.

These things sound as good, if not better, than a solution at over double the price with a receiver, two good Mission speakers and a powered subwoofer. Had trouble believing what I was hearing. Sound fills a large room very well. Bass is spot on without being exagerated. The "sweet spot" is where you'll appreciate the quality most of course.

Highly recommended, especially if you categorize these as computer speakers. They blow anything Logitech (or other similar competitor) out of the water, and I'm a fan of their other computer peripherals.

Great speakers for computer, games, music and movies! Very good voice clarity. Just the right amount of bass.
It take some space on a table. The remote controller is basic but usefull. For bass lovers, you may need to purchase an amplified subwoofer later.
Those speakers are robust and nice looking. They are very good for movies. Listening to voices over bass was not easy on my old setup. The bass is present but it start to dim at less than 50-45Hz. There is no headphone jack but it's better to plug headphones directly on the computer to keep signal quality.

There is not auto-sleep mode. You have to press on the knob or use the remote to turn on sleep mode. But I keep them active anyway and without signal, they are quite silent.

They do take some place on my table. But it's not an issue for me because i use a very large table with my 32" 1080p pc monitor. They also have 1/4" threaded inserts so you can mount them on speaker stands.

- Astonishing sound quality for mid-high frequencies.
- Nice sound quality for bass, but it lacks a bit
- Price a bit high, but really a bang for the buck if you purchase it on sale!!!
Those speakers deliver really great sound quality for the price and can go surprinsingly loud without any distorsion. They can be similar to some KRK Rockit as long as you don't push the power too high (well it's normal). They can easily fill a big room.

There's sufficient bass for a normal use, but the lack of subwoofer is noticeable (but I listen to a lot of bass music). What's great though is that's it's really simple to add one in the future.

I highly recommend those speakers to any music lover. Best PC speakers I've ever heard and they could easily match some studio monitors!

incredible sound clarity, loud, beautiful
could use a sub, but still provide better bass than any cheap logitech 2.1 or 5.1 speaker + sub designs i've owned and enjoyed.
single best component in my new build. stunning quality. if you have/are building a nice rig, absolutely invest in these premium quality speakers. you will love them!

Experience: 2 Weeks

Awesome sound quality
Could use an off button on the front
Best Computer Speakers for the money I got, paid them 300$. Amazing sound paired with Asus Xonar STX Essence

-Very good sound
-Powered USB
-Remote control
-Bass can be a little heavy at times
These speakers are really good. It is one of the best powered speakers I've ever owned.

Very solid built and good sound clarity.

The bass can overwhelm at times and wish there were controls for that. But the manual said to break it in first for about 50 hours of playtime.

So far it is worth the investment.

Experience: 1 Weeks
- Very clear and full of detail. You will hear things you never heard before from your favorite tracks.
- Loud and I mean rattle your neighbors kind of loud.
- Audio input and USB charging port at the top of left speaker for iPods and other portable media players.
- Might not have enough bass for bassheads.
- Might be too big for people with small desks.
Best computer speakers I have ever owned. Difference is night and day from anything Logitech or Creative has to offer.
