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!

All of the simple but useful features and same signature sound of the award-winning A5+ wrapped in rock solid and beautifully hand-finished bamboo. Bamboo is an excellent alternative to hardwoods and the dark bamboo used for the Audioengine A5+N cabinets is not a stain, but achieved through a specialized heating process. As the wood is pressure heated, the sugar compounds inside the bamboo are "carbonized" which in turn darkens the bamboo to a rich caramel color. Awesome sound, great looks, eco-friendly, and panda-safe.

A5+N Eco-friendly features

Made from renewable and sustainable solid bamboo - no veneers
No stains or paint used - naturally "carbonized" finish sealed with hand-rubbed water-based satin polyurethane

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
great build quality
Cons
none when on sale
Summary

Experience: 10 Months
Pros
Pretty good sound, nice look. Bigger and more powerful but not as refined as (more expensive) Bowers & Wilkins MM-1.
Cons
Ultra cheap remote (died within a week) and volume button on unit, no optical input, can't be powered on or off with remote (switch is on the back of one of the speakers).
Summary
Overall disappointed. For that price, manufacturer should include a decent remote and optical input.

Pros
dynamic music to my ears
Cons
none
Summary
Break these beauties in for 40 hrs or so.....high end sound opens up after run in period and lots of pure power volume....as good as separate receiver/speakers.....no need for subwoofer...I'm enjoying music and construction ie. bamboo wood of these beauties.

Experience: 3 Months
Pros
- 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
Cons
- Price premium for bamboo finish is high
- Does not go to sleep automatically
Summary
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 subwoofer. Had trouble believing what I was hearing. Sound fills a large room very well. Bass is spot on without being exaggerated. 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 out of the water, and I'm a fan of their other computer peripherals.

Experience: 8 Months
Pros
Great sound, good features, look great
Cons
Not enough bass
Summary
To really make the best of these, you need to turn up the bass on either your computer or a mixer.
At low volume, they're pretty basic, for best listening results, crank them up.

Pros
Good looking
Cons
Really big for a desktop
Summary
I have had them a month and the clarity is better then my home system. When I'm gaming the sound is very crisp. I found with out a sub it wasn't full enough though. So I bought an audioengine sub. Now I rather listen to music in my room, off my computer. Worth the money if you can afford it.

Comment: The Audioengine A5+ represent an uncommonly good value in today's fractured consumer audio marketplace, and a bonafide entry-level high end product. The integration of all the various components in the A5+ is outstanding.
