The Speakers

Speakers are the most important element of any music playback system. That is why we include speakers of exceptional quality in the Audio 359 Set One: AudioEngine's top of the line A5+ Premium Powered Speakers. Since the A5's appeared in 2005 they received rave reviews all over the world. The A5+ model came out in 2011 and managed to further improve upon this classic. Prepare yourself to be amazed and to fall in love. Yes, these speakers are that good.

WHAT HI*FI?

A timely upgrade has made the A5+ speakers slightly bigger, noticeably better and far more flexible than the originals. Tight, well-marshalled bass. Good sonic detail.

WIRED

8 / 10

Rich, detailed, room-filling sound that bests speakers costing twice as much. Once you listen to them, you’ll wonder how your ears tolerated anything else.

Positive Feedback

An Epic Mini-System

This tiny system really trumped some of the larger systems out there costing thousands more. The bass that comes from these speakers is tight, controlled and accurate. If you're on the fence about jumping into this hobby, this is a great place to start. Hell, it's a great place to finish, too.

AudioStream

No Reservations

I'd say that the Audioengine A5+'s give you more than you've given Audioengine. They strike me as the proverbial audiophile bargain capable of delivering musical satisfaction on most levels that count.

If you listen to a wide variety of music in terms of sound quality from streaming services to HD downloads and you like to listen often, paying attention to what and how musicians do what they do, and you enjoy being carried away by the sum of all that goodness (meaning you're also not doing anything else while you're listening), add a DAC.

Macworld

I’ve been a fan of Audioengine’s A5's since I first laid ears on them in 2006. The A5+'s are worthy successors to the original. I enjoyed their lower-end punch when listening to rock and pop tracks. At the same time, the lows and lower-mids don’t overshadow the highs — the higher frequencies are clearly present.

The fantastic, audiophile-friendly Audioengine A5+ speakers sound powerful without a thunderous subwoofer or booming bass.

The Stands

Speaker placement and room accoustics decide whether your system reaches its full potential. Putting compact monitor style speakers on stands, away from back and side walls and out of corners, makes them sound at their best. Using stands you can create the perfect listening triangle so that everything sounds just right. Experimenting with speaker placement will furthermore encourage you to take some room accoustics into account. The matching speaker stands included in the Audio 359 Set One are an essential element to achieve true high end sound.

The Player/Streamer

Today, digital audio files and streams offer the best possible sound quality combined with unparalleled ease of use and flexibility. The Audio 359 player/streamer unit is the heart that processes digital audio and converts it to an analogue signal that is fed to the speakers. It controls what you hear. It works together with all your existing devices, computers, tablets, smartphones and others, playing music stored on them or streamed through them. But the player also operates fully autonomous, playing the music stored locally on it, or streaming network streams directly. The Audio 359 unit is based on open hardware and open software, carefully constructed out of perfectly matching components.
