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.
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
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.
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.
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
