Audioengine A2 - Speaker System - WHITE
Audioengine A2 Speakers
Upgrade your Audio
Audioengine managed to duplicate the signature sound of the Audioengine 5s in a much smaller package perfectly suited for your desktop or a smaller space in your home or office. The Audioengine A2 speakers are a great introduction to high-quality audio and the perfect upgrade for your computer or iPod if your budget does not allow you to go for it's big brother the A5.
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 those plastic computer speakers to shame!
Smaller Speakers, Still Big Bass
To say that the bass on Audioengine 2 is substantial for their size may be an understatement, but you should be the judge. The bass comes from 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 Audioengine A2 was designed for your desktop but is also perfect for smaller rooms. Well-suited for all types of music, movies, and videogames, the Audioengine 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 circuit was also included to conserve power.
Weve 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, Sonos system, PSP - or any other audio device - into the A2 rear panel input. All cables that you may need are included.
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, you will still hear a difference!
