Audioengine announces 512 Portable Speaker

Not Just Another Portable Speaker
Many similar-looking speakers have fake bass, washed-out mids, annoying highs, and are just plain boring to listen to. But the 512 Portable Speaker has a warm and inspiring voice, surprising imaging and a very large soundstage. Yep, sounds strange to write about things like soundstage and imaging with a little mouse speaker, but we wanted to bring something special to the portable speaker market.

best portable speakers

Tight, firm bass, solid midrange, and clean, singing highs are what we worked for and we know you’ll agree the 512 is more than just the typical battery-powered Bluetooth speaker.

Surprisingly Loud 
Don’t let its size fool you as this tiny portable speaker is packed with much more sound than you would expect. Created by a company with deep roots in audiophile design, the 512 is surprisingly powerful and was made to reproduce sound better than any portable speaker of its size.

Audioengine portable speaker

Pricing and Availability
The 512 Portable Speaker has a retail price of $169 and available now from over 400 authorized worldwide resellers or online direct.

About Audioengine
Since 2005 Audioengine has designed innovative, easy-to-use, and affordable audio products for all your music. Great sound, beautiful design, and useful features.

 

Audioengine announces A2+ Wireless Powered Desktop Speakers

Versatile and efficient
The A2+ Wireless Speakers were designed for your desktop but their superb soundstage and imaging also makes them the perfect choice to fill a room.  Premium analog power amplifiers are built inside the left speaker, providing a very efficient system and an auto-standby idle mode is also included to conserve power when you're not playing music.

Why Bluetooth?
Audioengine home speakers utilize cutting-edge Bluetooth, aptX, that allows a solid transmission of up to 100 feet (and sometimes more) with no drop-outs and no blips. This range is not reliant upon the ebb and flow of your wi-fi strength at any given point. Bluetooth audio has come a long way in the past few years as well, and the implementation of the aptX codec allows for near lossless audio transmission that rivals the sound of many wired music systems.

New A2+ Wireless

Life is complicated. Listening to your music shouldn’t be.
A2+ is simple to use and designed for the way people listen to music today. Connect any way you like:  Wireless or wired, digital or analog. Play your music library or stream TIDAL, Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube from just about anywhere in your house without dropouts.  A2+ works seamlessly with all your favorite audio players and streaming music services, so no matter how you connect and listen, Audioengine has you covered.

Easy setup
Amplifiers are built inside the left speaker for an efficient mini stereo system that makes setup a breeze. We’ve included connections for your phone, tablet, computer, and turntable - and you can even add a subwoofer. Wireless setup takes about a minute and no apps to download or wi-fi passwords to enter. If you’re using A2+ Wireless at your desk, connect directly to your computer with a USB cable for a high-end listening experience.

a2+ Wireless Speakers

Audiophile-inspired design and construction
A2+ Wireless was designed with the same philosophy as our other products - great sound and simple setup and operation. Unlike most smaller computer speakers, Audioengine 2+ Wireless cabinets are constructed of 18mm-thick high-density fiberboard, rather than plastic. The woofer cones, of high-quality Aramid fiber with custom voice coils and magnets, produce surprisingly low, smooth bass and mid-range.  The tweeters, silk-dome and neodymium fluid-stabilized, provide sweet highs. The amplifier is a class A/B design, for premium sound reproduction.

Pricing and availability
A2+ Wireless has a retail price of $269 per pair and available now from over 400 authorized worldwide resellers or online direct.

About Audioengine
Since 2005 Audioengine has designed innovative, easy-to-use, and affordable audio products for all your music. Classic speaker design with no plastic, full stereo sound, long-range premium Bluetooth and no setup hassles make A2+ Wireless the ultimate mini music system.
