The A2+ Powered Desktop Speakers from Audioengine are an upgrade from the company's A2 speakers. The most notable improvement on the A2+ is the addition of a USB port and built-in digital-to-analog converter; you can send high-quality digital recordings directly from your PC without relying on its integrated--and typically subpar--sound card. The speakers earn high marks from reviewers for sound quality, and they offer 60 watts of peak power, 2.75-inch Kevlar woofers and 3/4-inch silk dome tweeters. Connectivity options include USB, RCA, and 3.5 mm stereo mini jack. The speaker housing is made of wood with a glossy finish and comes in three colors: white, black and red.
