I'm contemplating getting these but I'm a bit concerned they don't have grilles/cloth covers at all. I'd like to hear from owners, and disaster stories if any.
Hi Bill, to be correct they're the Audioengine 2 speakers not A2. I am quite careful with my speakers but I was wondering whether they're fragile when other people with itchy fingers touch the grill-less tweeters etc :-)
A2 stands for Audioengine 2. They're called both A2's and Audioengine 2's AFAIK.
This thread also should probably be in the computer audio forum. OT: I own a pair of Aktimate Mini's which also don't have grilles/cloth covers and they're just fine.
Yeah, wasn't sure if OP meant the A2's as this isn't the speaker forum. That said, again, My Audioengine P4's are built similarly and I haven't had an issue although I never let the roomate's cat in my room unattended. I haven't heard the A2's but the reviews are unbelievable. As for Audioengine in general I have nothing but good things to say about the Audioengines that I do have.
