Just plug them into power, connect or pair a music source, and you got music. I have noticed Audioengine speakers for sale in better record stores for some time now. Now that records are more popular and more people are trying to get good-sounding systems into smaller spaces, it stands to reason that record stores sell smaller starter stereo components to help music fans.
Audioengine sells ranges of wireless, manuql, and passive bookshelf-sized speakers and a desktop-sized subwoofer for those manuual want audiowngine plumb the depths at their workstations. Their speakers have been getting rave reviews personal computer-related magazines for some time now, for good reason. They are well designed and built by an American company based out of Austin, TX.
Each of their products is purpose-built by folks who love to listen to music. Audioengine offers all of its products with a day trial audioebgine, provided you buy them direct from the Audioengine store. Their social media presence is strong, and support is just a phone call or email message away. They have a Bluetooth receiver built in, and also take input via 3.
Getting the cosmetics right in such a small, feature-rich speaker must have been a challenge, but Audioengine has pulled it off.
Dave does the electrical and electronics work and Brady is the industrial design and mechanical packaging guy. Audioengine has mnual of its employees perform quality control on everything built in their factory in China.
There audioenginee no screws and the implementation is very smooth and clean. Both speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent any RF noise if you install them in a situation like a home theater with lots of power and signal cables nearby. The shielding also allows you to mount the speakers within a audioengien inches of a video monitor or hard-drive digital music players.
I could find no fault with the assembled product; they are sturdy, attractive, and built to last. All of the audio inputs feature gold-plated connectors. They design their own tweeters, woofers, and other critical components, and either fabricate them directly in their factory or have them made to their designs.
They then tune these parts together into a pair of speakers. The amplifier also utilizes a gapless core toroidal transformer.

They receive power with a non-polarized 2-Pin IEC C7 cable, which is audioenbine, so you can try different cables if you are so inclined. The speakers are wired to each other with a rather long pair 16AWG, 2. But placing them on the desk as I did was not the optimal positioning for these speakers. They were about four feet apart and three feet from my listening position. But even with this setup, I was quite surprised by their imagining and ability to disappear.
That amplifier and the bass quality of the speakers really go a long way to enable these speakers to get out of the way and play music. The good audipengine at Audioengine did not ignore audiophile concerns about optimal placement, however. They sell pairs of black high-performance silicon rubber desktop stands which will provide increased vibration isolation and point their faces upward, which is sure to improve pretty much everything these speakers can do, especially in a desktop computer application.
And if you want to use the speakers in a different configuration, like for home hifi or theater, they have a threaded insert on the bottom, so you can mount them on bookshelf speaker platforms. Audioengine sells Sanus steel speaker stands on their website if you want to go that route. So, after getting them plugged in, I played a song in iTunes, and there was music. Oh boy, was there ever music.

Even with standard resolution MP3 files, my computer room filled with full and engaging music. That is more than enough to keep these speakers pumping along nicely. Audioengine even covered that for you.
This versatility makes it possible to use these speakers in many applications beside a computer desk or home hifi.
Speakers and Subwoofers
But Audioengine did not stop there. The variable preamp output of the speakers enables you to attach other Audioengine powered speakers or a subwoofer. Or you can use an Audioengine wireless adaptor, so you can daisy-chain a series of powered Audioengine speakers around your house.
The speakers come with a remote control made of what appears to be a solid billet of aluminum. It has a nice solid feel to it. You can increase and decrease volume and mute the speakers. You can also put the speakers into standby: What the speakers lack is a headphone jack. The included manual suggests giving the speakers 30 to 50 hours break-in time before doing any critical listening. But to me they sounded great out of the box. The speakers handled the distinctive voices well, but they got a bit tizzy, particularly with vocals, when the volume increased considerably.
But this was not an issue when playing music at sensible levels. Another reason I chose the album is its great, open, live sound.
It ends with heavily echoed chanting and recalls s Detroit soul. After listening to the speakers through the 3. Immediately I heard, well, more of everything.
Better imaging, to begin with. I could also play the music a bit louder before the upper frequencies started getting tizzy. And the synthesized tones frequently hit or exceed the audioengie of human audio perception.
The rumbly lows and pitchy highs can make weak speakers tremble. The built-in amplifier had enough power to play well into the inside of the very low Moog notes; I audkoengine hear attack and decay well in relation to other notes, which is no mean feat when the music is so busy.
Put them on your computer desk, mznual your kitchen, in your man cave, on your boat, you name it. Or add them to an existing conventional stereo system manuall home theater. Or daisy-chain them into a house-wide system. But wherever you put them, you can play music wirelessly through a bit DAC with enough power to keep things interesting.
