Audioengine 5+ (A5+) Premium Powered Speakers


Audioengine 5+ (A5+) Premium Powered Speakers deliver
audiophile-quality sound and features at a price that continues to set the
standard for affordable high-quality audio. Connect your iDevice, computer, TV,
or any other audio component for great stereo sound in any room.

Affordable Audio

The goal of Audioengine is to provide a high-end listening
experience at affordable prices with easy to use, high-quality products. The
Audioengine 5 powered speaker system was Audioengine’s flagship model and has
become a best seller. The new A5+ has the same award-winning signature sound as
the original A5 but includes customer-requested upgrades and features.


With custom Kevlar woofers, silk dome tweeters, and
hand-built cabinets, the Audioengine 5+ includes a remote control, dual audio
inputs and enhanced thermal management. You can charge your iDevice via the USB
power port and also add a subwoofer to the variable output. Connect Audioengine
5+ to your computer’s headphone jack or pair with a USB DAC to achieve an even
higher level of sound quality. The Audioengine 5+ works with any computer and
there’s no software to install or settings to change.

Easy Setup

Built-in power amplifiers save space and eliminate the need
to connect Audioengine 5+ to a stereo receiver or external power amp. Simply
plug the left speaker into an AC outlet and connect the included speaker wire
from the left to right speaker. All internal components of the A5+ are tuned
together, providing a more efficient system requiring less power than passive
speakers and amplifiers. With superior stereo separation and incredible
imaging, A5+ has a clear sonic advantage over boomboxes or all-in-one systems.

Small Speakers, Big Bass

You won’t hear any enhanced super-mega-hyper-monster boomy
bass from these powered speakers. As with the original A5, the low end from the
A5+ is real bass, very near to the originally-recorded music. From rap to
classical to movies, you’ll get tight, punchy bass with an awesome growl that
will make you smile – regardless of the volume level.

Hear the Difference

The Audioengine 5+ Premium Powered Speaker System delivers
the audio performance and aesthetic quality expected from Audioengine and
continues to close the gap between your computer music and home hi-fi. Even if
you’re not an audio enthusiast we guarantee your music will sound better!

Custom Built

Audioengine designs and manufactures our own tweeters,
woofers, and other critical components. In other words, these are not “box
built” speakers with off-the-shelf parts but custom-designed to our
specifications. What we do not fabricate directly in our factory we have made
to our designs (parts such as transformers, magnets, and wiring harnesses, for
example). The cabinets, drivers, bass port designs, amplifiers, and crossovers
are all painstakingly tuned together for each Audioengine model. This, in turn,
makes for a much more efficient system that requires much less power than
passive speakers and a separate integrated amplifier or similar A/V components.


Audioengine uses audiophile-quality, ferro fluid cooled silk
dome tweeters with neodymium magnets. Silk tweeters hold up well under high
power and the edge-driven design gives very smooth response. The woofers are
Kevlar woven glass aramid composite with rubber surrounds. Kevlar is obviously
very strong, which means that the woofer retains its shape when being driven at
high levels. The speaker materials and construction are robust enough to stand
up to some serious thrashing, so speaker grills aren’t needed and they will
sound and look great after many years of use.

Power Amplifiers

The amplifiers in Audioengine speakers are located in the
left speaker and are a conservatively rated analog design. All components are
tuned together for each model, which provides a much more efficient system
requiring less power than passive speakers and separate amplifiers. Circuit
boards for the power and preamp sections are mounted for maximum mechanical
shock protection.

Power Transformers

Power transformers are a large contributor to the overall
audio performance, especially in the low end. Again, no off-the-shelf parts.
Audioengine uses gapless core toroidal transformers which have a tighter
radiated magnetic field, directly translating to lower noise. They are lighter
than standard, lower-cost “EI” transformers and also generate less


Both drivers are directly video shielded and allow the user
to place the speakers within a few inches of a video monitor. This shielding
also offers protection for hard-drive digital music players.

USB Power

The Audioengine 5+ includes a 5V, 500mA USB power supply that
powers later generation iPod, iPhone, and most other USB
“bus-powered” devices. The USB port is for power and charging, not
for data transfer or music syncing.
