Small Speakers, Big Sound

These handsome bookshelf speakers are ready to roll out your music, movies, sports and other pleasures with audiophile-level quality in a tidy package. All the toys you want are here, including real low-end bass, built-in power amps, custom woofers and tweeters, gold-plated connectors, dual RCA and mini-jack audio inputs, and heavy-duty cabinets to protect your investment. 

You will really improve your computer-based listening when you connect your bookshelf speakers to the headphone jack or even add a USB digital to analog converter for a game-changing sound upgrade. There is no need for an external amplifier or receiver, but you can add a subwoofer to the variable output if you like to bump up your bass for big tunes or action films.

Quality Components Make Quality Sound

The A5+ speakers are manufactured with top-level materials and pleasing conveniences such as a remote control, front-panel volume control and USB power/charge port. The five-inch Kevlar woofers with advanced voice coils are strong enough to eschew speaker grills and will not distort or stretch out of shape with ongoing play, and the silk dome tweeters are responsive and resilient. 

The A5+ speakers also have variable preamp audio output for connecting a subwoofer, powered speakers or a wireless adapter to move music to another space. Thermal management ensures a long life for your built-in power amplifiers. Sound is carefully managed thanks to strong cabinet walls with rear-ported waveguide and rounded edges to reduce high-frequency diffraction effects, and internal sound-damping and bracing to absorb unwanted resonance and distortion.

Hook the high-end bookshelf speakers up to your Mac, PC computer or other device, such as a smartphone, wireless audio adapter or digital to audio converter, and stream great sound from any media player. You can also link your speakers with your stereo using a mini-jack or RCA audio outputs.

Versatility and Style To Suit Your Space

These high-end bookshelf speakers are sleek and styled to blend with your space. The shape is distinctly rounded and custom finished to furniture grade. These compact speakers can be placed in a range of locations including on speaker stands, wall shelf or desktop. You can also wall-mount your speakers with built-in inserts on the back and bottom of the cabinet positioned for standard bracketing systems. You can place the speakers beside other electronics because the Neodymium magnets in the drivers are shielded.

You will love the sound straight out of the box; however, the 30 to 50 hours of break-in time will develop peak sound that is ready for critical listening. Set up your soundstage with the right balance, placing the speakers about six feet apart and equally offset from the side walls. Place one closer to the back wall, if you can, and try to keep both speakers fairly close to the front of the surface. Tweeters are ideally place at eye-level and, if you place a speaker on its side, make sure the tweeters face outward. Always try to keep the bass port slots unobstructed to attain the best bass response.

Quality Manufactured in America

Audioengine is a quality Texas-based manufacturer with a reputation for affordable quality audio components. This is a company that builds their critical components in-house and only sends out custom manufacturing to their trusted suppliers. The final product is hand-built, assembled and finished to create a consistent, signature sound.
