What do you all think of the new audioengine hd3 speakers? They're essentially the A2+ with nicer cabinet, a grill, front volume control, a supposedly robust headphone amp, and wireless built in. Apart from the wireless which I don't really need, those specs match up pretty much exactly with what I'm looking for in desktop speakers. I want small (but don't have to be this small) good looking powered speakers with front volume control, at least two inputs, and grills to match with a small subwoofer in my home office. But $400 seems like an awful lot for such a tiny low powered speaker. Are they a ripoff? I've never heard the A2/A2+s before so not sure if their build quality is enough to compensate for being so puny/toy-like.
