An Experience That Will Take You Far Beyond the Desktop
On one end of the spectrum, some speakers sound amazing but cost as much as all the bling in L.A. On the other, some speakers are reasonably priced but aren’t much better constructed than the box they came in. And in the center, there’s Audioengine.
We designed the A2+ to exceed your expectations for sound while not exceeding the limits of your budget.
With bass you’d expect from a nightclub and a cabinet that fits both your desktop and your aesthetic, the A2+ has found a middle ground that’s miles beyond the rest.
Big Sounds Come from Small Speakers
Don’t let their size fool you. These little speakers are packed with much more sound than you would expect. Clear, full, and powerful audio ideal for your computer and smaller rooms. The A2+ Wireless Computer Speakers are constructed with custom Audioengine components: aramid fiber woofers, silk tweeters, extended-range wireless aptX Bluetooth, and built-in power amps wrapped in precision-tuned, hand-crafted cabinets. In other words, we put a lot of thought into these speakers.
The sound will fill almost any room. The speaker itself won’t.

Yes! We incorporate all the relevant functions and features from Bluetooth 5.0 that apply to our products! These features include; extended range, low latency (so that video and audio sync properly), as well as higher level aptX-HD, aptX, and AAC codecs (with the exception of our 512 portable speaker which supports SBC only). Keep in mind that the capability of the source is what controls the Bluetooth experience.
All turntables require a phono preamp stage before connecting to Audioengine speakers. Many turntables have this built-in , while others do not and would require an external phono preamp. Check the turntable manufacturer’s website or user manual. Some turntables may even include Bluetooth, in which case you can pair and connect them to the speakers wirelessly!
Not necessarily. Audioengine speakers and amplifiers are very efficient. Also, we designed them together as a system; so, we therefore get more volume output than stereo receivers or amplifiers that might have higher wattage or power numbers. Due to this tuning, we achieve big sound outputs with a fraction of the power required by other systems.
Yes, you can. The A2+ Wireless speakers use a switching power supply so it will automatically convert to the different voltage. The power cable is also detachable which makes it convenient to replace the AC plug with a different type if you don’t want to use an adapter plug.
Absolutely! You will need to pick up Apple's Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter, which allows a USB connection to the iPad (and, as of iOS7, the iPhone). Then just hook up as you would from a computer. You can even charge your iPhone or iPad while you use it this way!
Our woofers are made of aramid fiber and the tweeter domes are silk. Both of these materials are very robust and can handle quite a bit of abuse. For our A-series speakers we decided against grill covers as they do tend to color the sound a bit. However, without speaker grills they are more cat and kid-friendly! If you do prefer speakers with grills, you can check out our HD3 speakers here:
No. The Bluetooth and USB inputs both share the internal DAC for processing, so you can only listen to one at a time, with Bluetooth taking priority. If you're using USB for example, and start using Bluetooth, the USB signal will cut and Bluetooth will take over. Depending on your source, if you pause or disconnect from Bluetooth the speakers may automatically switch back to USB after a few seconds.
Though overall latency can be affected by some external factors (including but not limited to signal strength, and even simply being physically further away from the speakers), Bluetooth on the A2+ Wireless generally has a delay of about 30ms (milliseconds) so you should be able to watch videos from Youtube, for example, and stream out the audio to the A2+ Wireless without any significant or noticeable lag between the video and audio.
Once your A2+ Wireless is paired and connected via Bluetooth, then any app (TIDAL, Music, Spotify, etc.) will automatically play your music through Bluetooth.
No extra software or drivers are needed. The A2+ Wireless is compatible with any device that supports Bluetooth, and the A2DP profile for streaming stereo audio. This includes most smartphones, tablets, and computers. For computers that don't include BLuetooth support out of the box, you can simply add a USB Bluetooth adapter.
The same is also true for the USB connection on the A2+, which uses plug-and-play drivers provided by your computer's OS. The A2+ USB input is compatible out of the box with Windows and Mac computers, iPhones and iPads when using Apple's lightning USB 3 adapter along with a fast wall charger, and should work with most Android Smartphones and Tablets as well.
In most cases, Yes! The overall range you can expect will vary depending on the device you use with the A2+ Wireless, as well as things like the type of construction used in walls you'll be transmitting through. In our testing, most mobile devices like smartphones and tablets will have the best range, some of which can exceed 100 ft in good conditions, even through one wall. Laptops and desktop computers in our testing generally had less overall range with an average of around 70 ft in similar good conditions through a single wall.
The A2+ Wireless work excellent via Bluetooth, but they can also be used wired, with more traditional source devices like Turntables, CD players, or anything else with a standard analog audio connection like RCAs or 3.5mm stereo-mini. They also include a USB port for use with a Windows or Mac computer, as well as many Smartphones and Tablets with the right USB adapter cable.
You can absolutely still use the A2+ Wireless and it will sound great. AptX is a high-quality Bluetooth audio codec that works really well. In addition aptX, and the default Bluetooth codec SBC, The A2+ Wireless support other high quality audio codecs, like AAC for use on Apple iPhone and iPads, as well as Android devices that do not include aptX.
Yes they do! They are equipped with a power-saving circuit that turns off the speaker's final stage amp. This idle mode activates right after you stop playing music. Due to this power-saving function, it's perfectly fine for the speakers to stay on all the time!
