Michael, Kamakura, Japan I like quality stuff

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The bamboo looks and feels fantastic. Definitely worth the (slight) extra cost. Nice to see a product using something other than plastic in the design. The overall build quality of these speakers is high and the design is straight-forward, no frills. Perhaps the position of the top usb/audio jack needs rethinking, but this is a minor issue when compared with the aforementioned attributes. With regard to sound quality, I am satisfied. These A5s will fill any normal-sized home room or office with warm, rich tones and satisfyingly deep base. I don't claim to have Steve Guttenberg's ears nor expertise, but my layman audiophile judgement is that these speakers were seriously designed to please, not simply fill space and a need.
Bad points:
I can't think of many, or any. Price I suppose. They are a bit spendy, and therefore they may not fit every budget. Still, like most things quality, these are worth saving up for. When you liberate your A5s from their eco-friendly wrapping (soft cotton bags), hook up the high-quality wires to the quality connectors (everything has a high-quality feel), you'll be glad you saved up and held out for this day, having made a good non-impulse purchase. Then there's the sound when you play them for the first time. I won't spoil the surprise. But trust me on this: these A5s make my Bose Companion 2 speakers sound like transistor radios.

Manufacturer's Description

Audioengine 5 (A5) Premium Powered Bookshelf Speakers – Award-winning sound and the Perfect Audio Upgrade! Real speakers for all your music. Audioengine 5 is wireless-ready and works with all your music.

Efficient
Power amplifiers are built inside the left speaker, saving
space and power. Versatile
Includes truly useful features and sounds great in any room.
No Receiver? No Problem!
For listening to real stereo sound Audioengine is all you need. If you want awesome powered speakers for your MP3 player, computer, game console, TV or DVD player but don’t want a bulky receiver/amp hogging up your space, Audioengine is the perfect solution.
Small Speakers, Big Bass
You won’t hear any enhanced super-mega-hyper-monster boomy bass from these powered speakers. The low end from the Audioengine 5 is real bass, very near to the originally-recorded music. From rap to classical to movies, you’ll get tight, punchy bass with an awesome growl that will make you smile – regardless of the volume level.
Natural Mids and Dynamic Highs
The way Audioengine speakers duplicate a music soundstage is really cool. We had all these great adjectives written up to describe the midrange and highs (buzz phrases like “tonal accuracy with transparent clarity, excellent detail and harmonic correctness”), but they all just seemed overused and sort of lame. Our goal was to bring you the sound as it was originally mixed in the studio. Vocals are clearly placed and each instrument occupies its own space, making the speakers seem invisible to your ears. We feel that we’ve succeeded in our goal and hope you agree! Brawn, Brains and Beauty
Kevlar woofers for powerful bass, silk dome tweeters for smooth highs, built-in power amplifiers, truly useful connections, and a clean industrial design all allow the Audioengine 5 to integrate perfectly in your living room, bedroom, or desktop. Custom-designed and handcrafted wood cabinets with high-gloss professional piano finish make the Audioengine5 a true work of art.
Wireless-ready!
The Audioengine 5 has a built-in AC power outlet on the rear panel and a USB power port on the top panel thats perfect for powering wireless products to stream your music. Check out the Audioengine W1 Wireless Audio Adapter, Sonos, Squeezebox, or Apple’s Airport Express for high- quality wireless options. The AC outlet is also ideal for powering other portable and home A/V equipment and a second auxiliary mini-jack is conveniently located nearby.
Built-in USB Charging
Designed for ease of setup and versatility, Audioengine 5 speakers have a built-in power port for iPod charging while listening to your music or watching movies. Plug an iPod dock or iPod directly into the ComboPort™ and you’re ready to rock (or roll). The ComboPort™ charger is compatible with all iPods and other products that charge via USB.
Hear the Difference
The Audioengine 5 Premium Powered Bookshelf Speaker System sets a new level of audio and aesthetic quality. Even if you’re not an audio enthusiast, we guarantee you will still hear a difference!
