"Life is complicated. Listening to your music shouldn’t be." Yep. Many audio brands have realized how this is something that attracts an important group of potential customers, which don't necessarily like to deal with technology. And as the Austin, Texas-based company explains, the A5+ Wireless eliminates the need for a stereo receiver or separate power amp. And setup takes just a few seconds with no apps to download and no WiFi hassles. Tidal, Spotify, Pandora, and any streaming apps will play instantly from the user's phone, tablet, and computer.
More importantly, the A5+ Wireless delivers the audio performance and thoughtful design expected from Audioengine. It delivers stunning stereo sound with integrated Bluetooth aptX-HD and AAC support, 24-bit upsampling DAC (AKM AK4396), and extended wireless range. Inside the compact and hand-built wood cabinets of the A5+ Wireless, Audioengine combined built-in class A/B monoblock power amps that match the custom 5″ Kevlar woofers and 3/4″ silk dome tweeters, already proven in the A5+ Powered design. The design is magnetically shielded so it can be placed close to screens and computers, and features a rear-ported waveguide and stand-mount 1/4" threaded inserts.
In terms of wireless specifications, Audioengine details the use of a Bluetooth 4.0 system, supporting up to 100ft (30m) typical operating range. In the back panel we can find all conventional RCA and mini-jack audio inputs for connecting conventional wired audio sources, and there is a subwoofer connection, which will work ideally with Audioengine's S8 Powered subwoofer. And inputs are always ready to go, with no buttons to push and simple front panel volume control. There's also a metal remote control included, and all cables are included.
The Audioengine 5+ Premium Wireless Music System starts at $499 and can be purchased in Black Satin, Hi-Gloss White, or Solid Natural Bamboo from over 400 authorized worldwide resellers or online direct at: audioengineusa.com
