iHi-Fi Music System Five
iHi-Fi Music System Five
You may wonder how a product that appears to be "only a pair of small speakers" is included in iHi-Fi's list of Music Systems. This product became the smallest gear configuration worthy of the name "Core System" when the designers put a 16-bit DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) inside the Speaker with the electronics. Simply set them up, add a USB source device, and hit "Play." You get stellar, CD quality music without accessorizing.
To make a personal stereo, plug in a portable music player, a CD player, a turntable, a TV, etc., -- up to two audio devices with Line Out connections -- directly into the analog inputs on the back of the Speaker with the electronics. All inputs are active so you hear whatever is playing. To add a Subwoofer for more extended bass, simply connect its input to the A2+ variable Line Out jacks.

The World's Best Computer Speakers
There are many good reasons why these Speakers are the most popular product from this manufacturer. They stand out among many high-value speaker systems. What's their secret? They simply deliver like champions, sounding fabulous with any good music you send them, including songs that need strong bass and crystal clarity to achieve the musicians' best intents.
At iHi-Fi, we think these A2+ Speakers are the best-sounding, highest quality, most extreme-value computer speakers ever made -- meaning speakers specifically intended to sit on a desk beside a computer monitor or laptop. They are also the most versatile member of that class, so they are useful in larger roles. As a personal stereo, they easily fill a whole room with great-sounding, accurate music.
The A2+ Pair outperform ordinary computer speakers by far. That's a tall order in such a competitive arena. But then, these speakers are an uncommon, second-generation product from talented speaker designers who went one-up on everything they learned on the first-round, A2 product version (now retired.)
Now for some revealing comments from serious reviewers about the A2+ Speakers:
Sound&Vision - A2+ Review
S&V Top Pick of the Year - “Easily one of the best deals in high-end audio, the Audioengine 2+ powered speakers are simply incredible.”
The Absolute Sound - A2+ Review
“...for $249 you get such quality sound it’s ridiculous. And what’s more, they sounded so good that I started listening to them instead of my main stereo - that’s how much I liked the A2+.”
The A2+ made the 2014 Absolute Sound Editor’s Choice Recommended Products List
Audioholics - A2+ Review
"Sound quality with Audioengine products has always been their strong point but we were frankly stunned by the soundstage and imaging of these little speakers.”
Truly Net - A2+ Review
"Your music will fill the room, with much deeper lows than you might imagine possible from a 2.0 speaker system that can fit on your desk."
Apple Daily Report - A2+ Review
"Even without a subwoofer connected, the bass is impressive, and the high ends, low ends and mid-tones on the A2+ are pristine and crisp."
PC Magazine - A2+ Review
“...the A2+ brings the clarity and dynamics audiophiles crave to a relatively affordable realm that audiophile gear rarely visits."
My Mac - A2+ Review
"Jazz benefits very well from these Audioengine speakers, and the music becomes immersive in a way most speakers in this price range can not deliver."

Anti-vibration is a master strategy for best-sounding audio.

They make a difference a listener can hear and appreciate to top off the A2+ performance with even more articulation and sonic realism.
If you prefer to send music wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet, get the optional B1 Bluetooth aptX Receiver and plug it into an A2+ analog audio input. Or you could choose the W3 Universal Wireless Audio Adapter that will connect any audio device with an output to your A2+ Speakers.
