Audioengine 2+ (A2+) Premium Powered Desktop Speakers - The new standard for multimedia sound and closes the gap between computer speakers and home audio. Audioengine 2 is the perfect upgrade for your computer, iPod, and all your music. Upgrade your Audio Creating powered multimedia speakers to follow the Audioengine 5 was a challenge, but we feel we‘ve managed to duplicate the signature sound of the Audioengine 5‘s in a much smaller package perfectly suited for your desktop or a smaller space in your home or office. The Audioengine 2 is a great introduction to high-quality audio and the perfect upgrade for your computer or iPod. Brotherly Love The Audioengine 2+ (A2+) is about one-third the size of our flagship Audioengine 5 system and is an excellent computer audio upgrade or small room speaker. We used the same custom tweeters as the Audioengine 5, matched them with newly designed compact Kevlar woofers and then added high-performance amplifiers with gold-plated speaker connectors. All this great engineering is wrapped in wood cabinets with a hand-polished finish to create a premium quality desktop multimedia speaker system that puts all those sad plastic computer speakers to shame! Smaller Speakers, Still Big Bass To say that the bass on the Audioengine 2 is substantial for their size may be an understatement, but you should be the judge. The bass was coaxed from the A2+ with some very clever acoustic and electrical design and without using any DSP or fake bass boost circuits. Wood remains a preferred speaker enclosure material for its stiffness at higher volume levels and the sealed cabinet focuses just the right amount of low end from the tuned front port slots. Versatile and Efficient The A2+ was designed for your desktop but is also perfect for smaller rooms. Well-suited for all types of music, movies, and videogames, the A2+ sounds great with or without a subwoofer. Using a similar design as the Audioengine 5, the A2+ power amplifiers are built inside the left speaker, providing a very efficient system. An auto-sleep standby feature is also included to conserve power when you're not playing music. Easy Connections We’ve included 1/8 mini jack and RCA inputs so connecting A2+ is easy. No software installs, plug-ins, or sound card upgrades. Just connect the audio output (or headphone jack) from your computer, iPod, Airport Express, Sonos system, PSP - or any other audio device - into the A2+ rear panel input. All cables that you may need are included. Connecting your Computer The A2+ now features a USB DAC now playing music from your computer has never been easier - or sounded better! Minding the Gap The Audioengine 2 sets a new level of audio and aesthetic quality for Powered Multimedia Speakers and further closes the gap between computer speakers and home audio. Even if you're not an audio enthusiast, we guarantee you will still hear a difference! Upgraded Features
  • USB digital-to-analog converter (DAC) built in.
  • Variable RCA output (connect a subwoofer or wirelessly send audio to other speakers with the W3 wireless adapter).
  • Standard 1/4" threaded inserts for wall mounts.
  • Upgraded binding posts.
  • Upgraded power connection and power supply.
  • Upgraded accessory cables. Stereophile Review I have never been more impressed with or more stunned by a component I've reviewed for Stereophile than I was with the Audioengine 2. The level of sound quality produced by this uncolored, detailed, articulate, and dynamic speaker, in all situations, was beyond reproach, and its ratio of value to cost borders on the criminal. Apple Phone Show Review These are a solid $199 investment. I’ve tried many different speaker systems. These A’s, by far, are the best value for the dollar.

    Sweet. Really powerful, great balance, presence and sturdy sound. Replaced some Bose desktop speakers and I am a big Bose fan.

    I Love my A2 's! I've had them for two years now. Before that I had the A2's. They're a perfect speaker for a small computer setup, or even a small vinyl setup. No need for external amps. Just find an inexpensive turntable with built-in phono stage and you're good to go.
