Appearance, design and setup
Audioengine A2 speakers are not gigantic at the first sight, as most of the 3rd gen audio-stereo gadgets seem to be these days. However, don’t let their appearance trick you as they can reach frequency ranging from 65Hz to 22 kHz. For those non-familiars with “techy” expressions, this is more than enough to wire your living room, bed room, office and dorm room with a sound to disturb you neighbors without amplifying at the maximum.
As for the design, you will notice they have paid certain amount of attention at the design of these speakers at Audioengine. They are compact with appealing design coming in two basic colors – black and white. Surface of the speakers is covered with 18mm thick medium density fiberboard, also known by abbreviation of MDF, which is made of resin bound woodchips. The connectors at the back of the left speaker, sporting 60 Watts strong RMS, are well laid out with 17.5 VDC power adapter jack, two wiring posts, and a volume control switch.
Talking about the volume control, we can check one downside for Audioengine A2 speakers. The fact you have to reach the rear of your left speaker to put your volume up or down, will not be found entertaining by many people; unless you keep your speakers facing the wall in front of you.
Audioengine A2 premium powered speakers are great investment if you want to get yourself pair of strong, convenient and neatly designed speakers for your house or office. They are great to be used within the bedroom or as mobile support for your poorly-amplified laptop speakers. Average price of $199.00 seems to be fair for these little devils with whole series of features and great sound quality packed inside so small space.
