The Audioengine A2+ Active Speakers is a fine example of how far your money can go. Audioengine took the fabulous award-winning A2 speakers, kept that powerful sound and included more connectivity and a great DAC. Now you can plug directly into the A2+ speakers via your computers USB output bypassing the mini jack headphone output. Now your signal conversion to analogue is done on board of the DAC inside the A2+ resulting in far better sound quality. Choose from the gloss white finish here or a seductive satin black finish.

The Audioengine A2+ Active Speakers is a fine example of how far your money can go. Audioengine took the fabulous award-winning A2 speakers, kept that powerful sound and included more connectivity and a great DAC. Now you can plug directly into the A2+ speakers via your computers USB output bypassing the mini jack headphone output. Now your signal conversion to analogue is done on board of the DAC inside the A2+ resulting in far better sound quality. Other analogue connections still remain there for other sources if required.
Not only do the A2+ speakers now have a digital input, Audioengine have also added an output to connect a subwoofer too. The A2+'s still command a pretty meaty low-end frequency range anyway but if you're into dance, R&B or reggae genres which rely on a heavy amount of bass it's great that they've included this to up the ante.
At around a third of the size of Audioengine's flagship A5+ speakers, the A2+ pack quite a punch and won't dominate your sideboard or desk. They have the same custom tweeters as the A5+ but with slightly smaller Kevlar® woofers with a high performance amplifier inside one of the loudspeakers (the other is passive). The A2+'s also include a standby mode to conserve power when they aren't in use. As for finishes, choose from the gloss white finish here or a seductive satin black finish.
To say that the bass on the Audioengine 2 is substantial for their size may be an understatement, but you should be the judge. The bass was coaxed from the A2+ with 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 feature is also included to conserve power when you're not playing music.
Included 3.5mm 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 A2+ 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!

Maintains the larger cabinet and driver style of traditional speakers, these are more efficient leading to a bigger more open sound stage and superior performance.
Home Cinema in a box. No bulky separates needed here, just unpack, plug in and go!
Smaller sized and less conspicuous yet still delivers excellent sound.
Active speakers are powered by their own internal amplifier so they don't require any external amp to work, simply connect to the mains and a source and go.
