    To get the best sound, you need the best parts. That’s why we’ve built the B2 with custom Audioengine components: aramid fiber woofers, silk tweeters, high-fidelity Bluetooth aptX, and built-in power amps wrapped in precision tuned, hand-crafted cabinets. And it’s sized to move where you need it most, whether it’s your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, or patio.

    No matter how you listen, or what devices or platform you use, the B2 Home Music System w/Bluetooth aptX has you covered. The B2 integrates perfectly with all your music, TV and movies, devices, and apps, whether you’re rocking TIDAL, Spotify, Pandora, or any other streaming music app.

    A Few Reasons Why the B2 Rocks

    • Easy setup, connects in seconds
    • No network setup, no passwords, no hassle
    • Wireless Bluetooth aptX-HD, means CD-like audio quality with extended range
    • Walnut finish: The B2's real wood veneer provides improved acoustics, enhanced aesthetics and greater durability than synthetic materials
    • Magnetic Speaker Grill: Crafted from high-quality materials, our magnetic speaker grille securely attaches to your speakers without screws. The grille protects your speakers from damage and minimizes distortion for an optimal listening experience.

    One-of-a-Kind That Beats a Pair

    The B2 is that rare breed of home music system that offers true stereo sound in a single cabinet. Plus, since it’s easy to move, you’re taking true stereo sound anywhere you go. An IOT unit, Alexa, or even Siri can easily join the party, too.

    Easy to Set up, Easier to Love

    The B2 Home Music System is a compact, single-cabinet system that packs a big enough sound to fill most spaces. Nobody has time for network setups or passwords to enter, so we’ve kept it simple, and now you can get to the music quicker.

    Questions & answers about the B2 Home Music System w/ Bluetooth aptX

    Absolutely!  You can connect any Audioengine speaker with an analog output to any Sonos product that has the Line-In feature.  You can also connect any Audioengine passive speakers into an existing Sonos system using the Sonos Amp.

    Absolutely! To do so:

    • Open the Alexa App on your smartphone or tablet (Apple link  |  Google Play Link)
    • Tap the “Devices” icon and select the Echo/Alexa device you want to connect to speakers
    • Select “Bluetooth Devices”
    • Select “Pair New Device”
    • Find your Audioengine wireless speaker on the list of available Bluetooth devices, and select it

    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.

    You can absolutely use a turntable with the B2. Some turntables will need a preamp before being connected and others are OK, therefore it is best to try your turntable without the preamp first to see how it operates.

    The short answer is yes! You can use TIDAL on any compatible source device (PC, Mac, iPhone Android, etc.). The B2 is compatible with most all of these devices as well since they almost universally also include Bluetooth.

    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!

    The overall range you can expect will vary depending on the device you use with the B2. We tested using mostly a variety of smartphones though, and found 30 to 40 feet to be a realistic expectation through one or two walls and 100ft or more in an open space.

    There is an auxiliary input on the rear panel so you can directly connect any product with an audio output.

    Our B2 is an all-in-one system with no extra components needed except your phone or computer. All you need to do is unpack the speakers, place them where you want, and then plug in the AC cord. Then connect your music source using the supplied cables - or go wireless with any Bluetooth enabled source device, like a computer, smartphone, or tablet.

    Here is a quick video that can be used as a reference:

    B2 Setup Video

    (Please note - there is no audio associated with the video.)

    Absolutely! The B2 can be used in either 110-120v or 220-240v areas without flipping any switches, modding your B2, or using a power converter. If you're moving to an area with a different plug type than what came standard with your B2, we wouldn't recommend using an adapter and would suggest trying to find another AC cord for your B2 that have the correct plugs.  The B2 uses a non-polarized 2-pin IEC 320 C7 power cord, so you should be able to find one locally with the correct plug for your area.

    Yes, you can find lower priced Bluetooth speakers for your home, but good luck finding one that combines high-end looks with equally high-end sound quality.

    With every aspect of the B2’s construction obviously so carefully considered, it’s no wonder that the small unit plays so seemingly far out of its league.
