Audioengine A5+ Powered Bookshelf Speakers

The top of Audioengine's speaker lineup, the A5+ improves on the award-winning A5 design with improvements such as a variable line out, rear-mounted USB power and mini-jacks, 5-way binding posts, RCA inputs, and even a remote control. We have a soft-spot in our hearts for the over-performing A2, so we were expecting the A5+ to sound the same, just bigger. We were shocked to discover that the A5+ does everything that the A2 does, only better! The A5+ throws a bigger soundstage with a more stable image; has a richer more natural tonal balance; feels like it plays a good octave deeper than the A2 and has a bunch of very cool features.

The A5+ throws a very good soundstage with surprisingly good imaging. The A5+'s custom tweeter cups focus their energy to the listening position, offering excellent inner detail and good sense of depth. The soft dome tweeter's sweetness is hugely appealing, making the A5+ all-day listenable. The A5+'s custom-made Kevlar woofers have great speed and dynamic range, with a neutral tonal balance. The A5+ produces bass that is firm and taut, if a bit rounder than might be found on more "audiophile" designs, but this is intentional, not a flaw, and makes most recordings sound a lot more exciting. Overall, considering the price and even taking the price out of the equation, the A5+ offers a ton of musical satisfaction for a very reasonable price!

There are three finishes available for the A5+, Matte Black, Gloss White, and Carbonized Bamboo.
  * The Carbonized Bamboo used on these A5s is extremely durable, gorgeous, sounds fantastic and is a sustainable wood. Bamboo is an excellent alternative to hardwoods and the dark bamboo is not a stain or veneer, but achieved through a specialized heating process. As the bamboo 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!
  * Gloss White complements Apple and Sonos products. The high-gloss finish requires no maintenance, but do not use abrasive or harsh chemical cleaners. A soft wipe with a micro-fiber cloth will be sufficient to remove any dust.
  * Matte Black is a soft, silky finish which hides both dust and fine scratches exceptionally well.
