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.

Versatile

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.

Drivers

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.

Shielding

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.

Pros
Audiophile quality sound.
Three different finishes to choose from.
Build quality seems to be on par with some of the higher end setups.
Cons
Overpriced
Bass is lackluster (for obvious reasons)
Summary
I purchased these on sale for $379.99.
So far, I'm very pleased with the purchase. If you're in the market for speakers, forget the traditional 5.1 setup and get these instead.

Pros
-Fantastic sound quality
-Built-in Amp makes these extremely versatile
Cons
-No automatic sleep mode
Summary
Superb speakers at a great price ($329 on sale). They replaced my Logitech Z680 5.1 and what a difference... Sound clarity, not over the top bass and no distortion even when raising the volume to the max. The piano white finish with Kevlar woofer complements these premium quality speakers.
If your budget allows it and looking for a set that does music, gaming and movies, look no further than the A5+.
I will be adding the S8 sub shortly along with Creative Zxr PCIe Sound card.

Pros
Excellent sound quality
Has both 3.5mm and RCA inputs as well as an option RCA out for a sub
Cons
Sleep mode not automatic and has a vampire draw of 4 watts
Summary
Best desktop speakers I have owned so far. Using them with a Xonar Essence ST. These replaced an old Logitech Z5300 5.1 system which pale in comparison. The A5+ have much clearer sound allowing you to pick out individual instruments. The bass is good and not boosted like they are on Logitech subs.

Powerswitch is at the back but the front volume knob acts as a sleep button. Would have been nice if it automatically went to sleep. There is a 4W draw in sleep though.

Awesome set of speakers
Cons
None at all
Summary
I bought this set and I got it yesterday. They are awesome and I love them. I have owned many sets before and this has to be the best of them all. I intend on adding the S8 sub to the setup soon.

Pros
Great sound clarity (highs, mediums, and lows), Variable output RCA jacks for subwoofer, convenient USB port
Cons
A bit bulky. Also a steep price
Summary
I was blown away by these speakers. I had upgraded from an old logitech z-5500 5.1 system, and oh boy did the sound clarity on these audioengines surprise me. I was skeptical at first about hearing a big difference between the logitechs and this, but it's really obvious. Music, games, and movies sound much more crisp and every minute audio detail can be heard. Highs and mids sound fantastic, and the bass is surprisingly good. It won't rumble the room, but the bass is clear, tight, and feels really pleasant.

I plan on using the variable outputs on these speakers to hook up an active subwoofer. The fact these speakers have this variable output is VERY convenient. Awesomely convenient.
Compared to the audioengine a5, I hear these a5+ have better sound, are slightly more powerful, and have better thermal management for the amp. I do not really know if these claims hold true, as I have not owned the a5 myself. A big difference that is present for sure, is that there is no ac outlet.

Would I recommend these? Absolutely. You truly get what you pay for: Awesome quality sound.

Pros
Beautiful finish
good sound quality
Cons
none so far
Summary
I think this speakers are great. They fill the room quite nicely and the color matches with my computer case. The sound quality that this speaker deliver is excellent and great. The highs are very clear and the mids are pretty good as well. The bass is not too bad, I adjusted my EQ to my liking and the bass just sounds great. Overall it is a high quality speaker and should last you for a while. I hear break-ins are about 50 hours, but then again, some say that break-ins are just myths.

Pros
Absolutely stunning sound reproduction.
Cons
none
Summary
I replaced an Edifier S330D set with the A5+ and my expectations have been exceeded. They are able to reproduce musical elements that where simply omitted by any of the 2.1 systems I have used so far. I am about 1/3 through the estimated burn in phase, which means that these speakers will only get better.

Pros
+balanced
+sleek design
Cons
-price (but to be expected for such fine product)
-break-in period
Summary
these speakers are absolutely wonderful to my ears out of the box, despite the stiffness that i observed. it was expected, though as the speakers need to be broken in, and i noticed improvement even after several hours (few days). for anyone looking for a good set of 2-2,1 speakers for audio playback i would definitely suggest considering these.

Pros
-Sound quality
-Build quality
Cons
-At the sale price, absolutely none
Summary
These are fantastic little powered bookshelves, with ability to hit all but the lowest notes on a double bass.

The amplifier and speakers are of very good build quality, you're definitely getting more than what you paid for.

Pair this with a decent DAC and you have a very good desktop system.
