audio upgrade for your PC or Mac! Free cables and 3-year warranty.
Weve managed to duplicate the signature sound of the Audioengine
5s 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 those plastic computer
speakers to shame!
Speakers, Still Big Bass
To say that the bass on Audioengine 2 is substantial for their size may
be an understatement, but you should be the judge. The bass comes from
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 port slots.
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 circuit was also included
to conserve power.
Weve 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.
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 difference!
