The best computer speakers I've heard at any price


These are the best computer speakers I've ever heard or owned at *any* price, and I had a pair of Altec-Lansings that cost me $700 USD in around 1998-99.

The Audiosphere A5+ are handling the opening bass solo on George Michael's "Hard Day" off the album "Faith." That track stress-tests bass handling like nothing else I've ever heard. If your speakers are going to lose control over the bass notes, this track will expose that flaw in spades. But the A5+ are just pumping out rich notes without a stutter whatsoever.

George Michael's "Kissing a Fool" from the album "Faith" exposes any flaws in the execution of midrange and highs in any speaker. George sings at the lower end of his range, providing a rich, natural tone that should just sound *real.* A piano fills out the mid-highs, and the snap of a cymbal and snare exercise your high frequencies.

The recording quality on this track is stellar for a CD. Only the 192/24 audio tracks I've heard sound better.
Flawless execution. Although I got a refurbished pair from another website, I wanted to add my testimonial to the quality and value of these amazing speakers.

Experience: 4 Years

Greatest speakers ever!


Great sound separation.
Bass isn't too strong but very much present and accurate
Pushes loud volumes!
Kevlar woofers
volume knob has issues. turning counterclockwise is suppose to lower volume, but for the first 30 degrees in rotation, it increases the volume immensely before proceeding to decrease volume.
Been using these speakers for 4 years now and have no issues with them whatsoever. Just wished the volume knob wasn't a bit faulty so my ears wont have to die.

Experience: 3 Years


Balanced and Neutral, Clean
I originally bought the A5's and was experiencing a persistent hum like many people in outside forums had mentioned. Instead of abandoning Audioengine for something else I gave them another chance and I'm really glad I did. Everything about these speakers is top notch. Audioengine is obvious a company that takes tremendous pride in what they build dare I say in even an Apple-like way. The improvements over the original A5 (beyond for me personally the elimination of the hum which most A5 owners probably did not have) are 1) the minimalistic rubber backed remote, 2) the volume control allows for much finer control at low volumes, 3) the awesome bamboo enclosure is no longer defaced with a usb and audio in jack on top of the powered unit - this made no sense for something so beautifully crafted - these are on the back where they belong. 4) The powered enclosure has a heat sink to protect the electronics. Other changes are the enclosures are slightly larger than before and there is no auxillary power outlet on the back. The latter change is no problem for me since I run an extension cord with multiple sockets to the back of the powered unit anyway (for the Airport Express). And, of course, the most important thing is that the sound is absolutely amazing for speakers of this size.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Amazing sound!
Do not hesitate to buy!

Experience: 5 Days


Audiophile quality sound.
Three different finishes to choose from.
Build quality seems to be on par with some of the higher end setups.
Bass is lackluster (for obvious reasons)
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.

great build quality
none when on sale
classy white look. great clear clean sound quality

-Fantastic sound quality
-Built-in Amp makes these extremely versatile
-No automatic sleep mode
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.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Excellent sound quality
Has both 3.5mm and RCA inputs as well as an option RCA out for a sub
Sleep mode not automatic and has a vampire draw of 4 watts
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.

Experience: 2 Days


Awesome set of speakers
None at all
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.

Experience: 14 Days


Great sound clarity (highs, mediums, and lows), Variable output RCA jacks for subwoofer, convenient USB port
A bit bulky. Also a steep price
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.

Features [ Edit | History ]

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.
