I bought these Submitted by warpdrive on January 8, – Audioengine had their A2 and A5 models already on the market by then but they looked decidedly more like traditional speakers and therefore reached for a different audience. Email us and tell us why you think this product should receive a higher rating. The balanced, pure and vital sound has won me over completely and the beautiful enclosure is the cherry on top.

In fact I’d say they are probably one of the most well known higher quality brands among the general non-audiophile public.
In this case, guys who wear suits and schwanky offices and still want something that sounds good. Wedding Wil,ins in Nagpur This adds a fun component to the evening.

Although Bose M2 has been my favorite desktop speakers great sound as long as proper toe-in, and. The battery cover is also quite hard to remove and the chrome piece is plated plastic.

Audioengine had their A2 and A5 models already on the market by then but they looked decidedly more like traditional speakers and therefore reached for a different audience. A slightly missed opportunity is with the remote. Ask random folks on the street if they have heard wil,ins Wilson, Sonus Faber, Rockport, or Harbeth, and the answer will almost certainly be no.
And I could always locate the sub no matter where I placed it, probably due to the crossover point being so high. Build quality and appearance were clearly prioritized by the design team.
Underneath that speaker we find a USB port for connection to a computer, a jack for the outboard switch-mode power supply, and a plug for the umbilical which connects to the left speaker. The midrange is very musical and decidedly non-digital sounding despite the MM-1’s all-digital build and design.
I really do think throwing all the money at 2 speakers instead of 3 makes more sense at this price range. Had the Focal XS Book been around, I might have chosen those instead because they have better bass extension. One of the few issues I have with the speakers is the cables.

They look great on my desk, take up no room at all, and have better clarity and detail than the Audioengine A2 I had before.
