I have no qualms in recommending the Audioengine A2+ to anyone needing a small pair of speakers.
Of course, there are caveats. For one, there is no option to get the speaker set without a built-in DAC. So if you already have an existing DAC and wish to save a few bucks you will have to scrounge the internet to search for the discontinued Audioengine A2 speakers. Lastly for those looking at playing electronic music they may find the sub-bass to be inadequate. However, there is a provision to add a powered sub woofer if you so wish.
That said the built-in DAC is pretty good, the speakers are well built, sounds great and they come with everything necessary to use them right out of the box.
The price may seem to be a bit high considering lower-priced alternatives from Creative, Logitech and others, but the Audioengine A2+ are in a different league altogether and can’t be compared.
For those looking at better bass the bigger brother the AE5+ is also available which has bigger drivers which should solve the sub bass problem, but they come in a much bigger size.
All in all the, Audioengine A2+ gets a hearty recommendation from me and a silver award!
The Audioengine A2+ have no real competition in India as there are hardly any brands offering powered 2.0 speaker systems at this price range.
For the price the Audioengine A2+ offer excellent build quality, very good sound quality in very small package.
For the price they are easy to recommend.
