Audioengine A2+ Black (Pr.) 2-Way Powered Speaker System Review


Welcome to the Audioengine family and congratulations on the purchase of this high-end A2 + powered desktop speaker. The Audioengine team strives to provide you with the best listening experience of the highest quality possible. The A2 + is designed with the same attention to detail and operational simplicity as other Audioengine products. Our goal is to integrate your music in the simplest possible way without all the "touch-ups" of gadgets that usually require other products.

Audioengine was created in 2005 with a simple goal: to create a great speaker, is easy to install and use, and users want to listen to music every day.

The main products of Audioengine are self-powered speakers; all-in-one music systems that allow you to connect all your Wireless options (or cable) for optimal stereo sound. They started with a single speaker, the a5; beautiful and straightforward, but versatile enough to be used in your workspace as computer speakers, on stands in your living room or a home theatre installation.

But the Audioengine team wanted to offer even more for its customers. After years of hard work, the versatility of its products has been further enhanced by the offering of a suite of additional audio products that can be used with existing music systems.

Her passion is to help people listen to all their favorite songs because they are supposed to be heard, to discover new music and enjoy it with the best sound quality. And they do exactly what they planned: change the way people listen to music. Today, Audioengine is proud to offer a full range of products that deliver the sound quality of professional studio monitors directly into your living room, without the inconvenience of multi-device stereo receivers or large passive speakers.

  • Check that the ac power cord is correctly connected to the power source and the ac outlet. The speakers do not sound:
  • Check that the power cable is plugged into the rear panel and that the power supply led is on.
  • Check that the volume/power button on the back panel is lit. It is not set to minimum volume or off (we recommend a position of at least 10 hours).
  • Check that the volume level of your audio source is not at minimum or off. And ensure that the cable that is connected to your audio source is correctly inserted to the correct port (sometimes the 1/8 "cables appear to be fully inserted, but they are not.) If the speakers produce a sound from the left speaker, check that the speaker cables, whether they are correctly connected between the left and right terminals of the speakers. Make sure that the cable connecting your audio source to the speakers is connected adequately if the sound is distorted: decrease the volume of the input audio source and increase the capacity of the speakers.

We recommend that you keep the original box and packing material for future shipping.

Your A2 + speakers are designed to be used for years without maintenance, as long as they are not exposed to moisture or high temperatures. Hand-finished MDF wood cabinets are very durable and can be easily cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. We do not recommend the use of cleaners or solvents.

Be sure to keep at least 3 inches of free space at the back of the cabinet for good air circulation.
