Average User Rating:
3.875/5,
  • Audioengine 5 is a full size speaker system in a bookshelf-sized package. Internal power amps eliminate the need to connect the Audioengine 5 to a bulky stereo receiver or power amplifier. And with built-in subwoofer ports, the Audioengine 5 adds incredible low-end bass without the need for an external subwoofer.

    "Good speakers."
    Pros - Loud, clear, not made out of cardboard
    Cons - almost too loud for small rooms/apartments,
    Owned these for about a year until i downsized to the A2s, these sound good, excellent warranty. Worth getting.

    "Powerful but Lacking"
    Pros - Powerful
    Cons - Lacks any real definition or clarity
    They're better than any other PC Speakers I've ever heard, and are powerful enough to fill a small room. But that's about all the praise that I can give their sound, and it's not like PC speakers set a high bar.
     
    The sound out of these speakers is very disappointing considering their price and all the rave reviews they've gotten. The bass is extremely muddy and lacks anything that even resembles accuracy. Mids and highs are distorted to hell and back. There's no detail in any part of the spectrum. Music just doesn't sound...well..."musical".
     
    I really can't recommend these speakers to anyone. For only 2/3rds of the price (or less) you can get a pair of cheap Polk Monitor 30's (or similar) bookshelf speakers and a vintage Marantz or Pioneer receiver/amp to drive them. No matter what sort of music you listen to, a setup like that outdoes these speakers by leaps and bounds, and for less money.

    "As good as pc/ipod speakers can be"
    Pros - sound quality/quantity....in that order
    Cons - limited source limits speakers, finish
    These are as good as it gets in terms of pc speakers imo (speakers connected via the mini plug).  I prefer stereo and these do sound quite good and can really fill a reasonably sized room pretty well.  They've provided more then was/can be expected. Very versitile as well.  Finish is kind of cheap, especially the gray ring around the woofer/tweeter. The bamboo ones do look awesome but still have the cheap looking gray ring. Minor quivels with great overall product.
