Due to the global pandemic, those of us who have been unexpectedly thrust into working from home have had to figure out how to get our work done while sheltering in place. We wanted to share some of the things that have helped us stay productive and more-or-less content since we began physically distancing ourselves from our loved ones and friends who live outside of our homes.
The first hardware I ever reviewed was a set of Audioengine A2 speakers; they were small, powerful and sounded amazing. In fact, the only knock I had was their lack of wireless capabilities that required me to get a Bluetooth adapter. Now Audioengine has released the Audioengine A2+ Wireless Desktop Speakers, and all I can say is “wow!”
My first website was an iPhone app review site. When we expanded into covering hardware, I was fortunate enough to get a pair of Audioengine A2 speakers as my first review item. Now Audioengine has refreshed the line and added Bluetooth. The new Audioengine A2+ has a classic look, but they are an entirely new offering from a fantastic company.

I think I’ve made it clear over the years that I love Audioengine products. I’ve reviewed many of the company’s speakers and have always been impressed. Honestly, I’m not sure why they aren’t a household name. Now they have released the Audioengine A5+ Wireless Speakers. An update to their impressive A5 speakers, their new offering once again impressed me.
Audioengine makes some of my favorite speakers; I’ve reviewed a number of them and use them daily in both my home office and bedroom. Now Audioengine has announced the A5+ Wireless speakers. With pricing starting at $399, the A5+ won’t take up a ton of space but will fill a room with quality sound. That, however, is just the beginning.
As I’ve previously noted, I’m a huge fan of Audioengine products. The HD6 are among my favorite speakers and the B2 resides in our bedroom. So color me surprise that I think the HD3 Wireless Music System is AudioEngine’s best offering yet. These may look like simple desktop speakers, but they’re a complete music system packing Audioengine’s best audio tech.
I love Audioengine speakers. The HD6 are among my favorite speakers. So I was excited to hear about the new HD3 Wireless Music System. They look like AudioEngine’s familiar desktop speakers but they’re something new. As the company explains, “the HD3 is a complete music system that allows you to listen to all of your music from any source.”
The first time I went to visit Raina, I made fun of the huge speakers attached to her stereo. “Those are freaking huge!?” I said. Fast forward a year, and I’m using the AudioEngine HD6 Powered Speakers. These speakers are fairly large bookshelf speakers. They are also the best speakers I have heard in a long time.
There are Bluetooth speakers, and then there are Bluetooth speakers. Wow, is the AudioEngine B2 Bluetooth speaker ever an amazing Bluetooth speaker. Not only is the walnut cabinet on the speaker absolutely gorgeous, but it puts out a whopping 60W of sound. More importantly, the sound it puts out is fantastic. And… it is under $300!
If you care about your music, then you simply must check out the $189 Audioengine B1 Premium Bluetooth Music Receiver. And since Audioengine offers a no-strings attached “30 Day Audition”, there’s no reason NOT to check it out and add high-quality Bluetooth streaming to your current sound system. Easy to set up, it will be music to your ears.
How do you feel about the audio coming out of your laptop? If you have ever used a headset with USB audio you know the quality difference an outboard DAC can make. Now AudioEngine is offering the D3 Premium 24-bit DAC system as a way to simply plug in a USB device and enhance your audio experience!
My buddy Dimitri recently had the chance to review Audioengine’s A5 speakers over on WhatsOniPhone. He loved the big sound and excellent build. I’ve recently had a chance to take a look at the far smaller A2s; at about 1/3 the size of the A5s, the A2s are like the smaller sibling and while they don’t pack the SAME punch, they hold their own rather well. Let’s take a look…
