Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The A2+ speakers produce sound with exceptional clarity.
  • They include a built-in DAC.

  • The controls are in the back and somewhat hard to reach.
  • There's no optical input.
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.

While there are plenty of subtle upgrades between the A2 and the current A2+, the most obvious upgrade is the USB port for the built-in DAC.
