SMALL SPEAKERS BIG SOUND. SURPRISINGLY LOUD
Don’t let their size fool you as these little speakers are packed with much more sound than you would expect. Clear, full and powerful audio ideal for your computer and smaller rooms. The A2+ Wireless Computer Speakers are constructed with custom Audioengine components: aramid fiber woofers, silk tweeters, Premium Bluetooth aptX, and built-in power amps wrapped in precision-tuned, hand-crafted cabinets. Clear, full and powerful audio that fills almost any room.
EPIC DESKTOP SETUP. THE MUST-HAVE DESKTOP EXPERIENCE
Everyone knows the difference between custom-built, small batch products and the general disappointment of mass-produced products. The A2+ was designed and is hand-built with the goal of exceeding expectations of both value and performance. The bass was teased from the A2+ with some clever acoustic and electrical design without using any digital signal processing. To say the bass on the Audioengine 2+ is substantial for their size may be an understatement, but you be the judge.
These small computer speakers really pack a punch, making them the go-to system for desktop setups and smaller-room audio.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I use the volume control on the front of the A2+ Wireless or can I adjust from system volume on my computer?
If the left speaker is in an easy to reach location, you can certainly use the physical knob to set volume. If not though, it's perfectly fine to set the A2+ to a good volume and adjusting from source. Every setup is different, so some experimentation will be necessary to find your prefered settings, but around 11 or 12 o'clock is a good starting place.
Can I take my Audioengine speakers to another country with a different voltage?
Yes, you can. The A2+ Wireless speakers use a switching power supply so it will automatically convert to the different voltage. The power cable is also detachable which makes it convenient to replace the AC plug with a different type if you don’t want to use an adapter plug.
How easy is it to set up A2+ Wireless?
A2+ Wireless is an all-in-one system with no extra components needed except your phone or computer. Simply place the speakers where you want them and connect the power supply. Hook up the included speaker wire from the powered left speaker to the right passive speaker. Then connect your music source with the supplied cables - or go wireless with any Bluetooth enabled source device, like a computer, smartphone, or tablet.
Do higher power output ratings for audio gear mean louder or better sounding speakers?
Not necessarily. Audioengine speakers and amplifiers are very efficient, and designed together as a system so therefore we get more volume output than stereo receivers or amplifiers that might higher wattage or power numbers. Due to this tuning, we achieve big sound outputs with a fraction of the power required by other systems.
What if my source doesn't support aptX? Can I still use the A2+ Wireless and if so, how will it sound?
You can absolutely still use the A2+ Wireless and it will sound great. AptX is a high-quality Bluetooth audio codec that works really well. In addition aptX, and the default Bluetooth codec SBC, The A2+ Wireless support other high quality audio codecs, like AAC for use on Apple iPhone and iPads, as well as Android devices that do not include aptX.
Can you stream music wirelessly to the A2+ Wireless with an Audioengine wireless adapters instead of Bluetooth?
Yes, an AC wall outlet near the A2+ Wireless is all you need to power the W3 or D2 wireless receiver.
What does the white indicator light on the A2+ Wireless rear panel mean?
If it's on and solid, this means the A2+ Wireless is powered on, and currently connected to a Bluetooth-enabled device.
If it's on and blinking, this means the A2+ Wireless is powered on but not currently connected to a device.
If it's off (and A2+ Wireless is powered on), this means Bluetooth is in standby and not connected to a device. The A2+ Wireless, however, is still visible to your device, so simply connect using your device and it will automatically wake up.
When using the USB input of the A2+ Wireless, what bit rate and bit depth should I set my system to?
The A2+ Wireless internal DAC handles up to 48K transfer rate, and up to 16 bits bit-depth. Your system will generally default to these settings when you hook up the A2+ Wireless. If you mainly use 44.1K files, you might set this as the default in your system. Many system players like JRiver and Amarra will default to the proper bit rate automatically.
Is the A2+ Wireless designed only for use with Bluetooth devices?
The A2+ Wireless work excellent via Bluetooth, but they can also be used wired, with more traditional source devices like Turntables, CD players, or anything else with a standard analog audio connection like RCAs or 3.5mm stereo-mini. They also include a USB port for use with a Windows or Mac computer, as well as many Smartphones and Tablets with the right USB adapter cable.
The sound quality of my computer's headphone jack isn't very good but I want to connect my A2+ Wireless speakers. What do I do?
The headphone outputs on many computers will sound great with the A2+ Wireless. Some do have poor audio quality though, so if this is the case for your computer, try connecting from the USB port to your with A2+ Wireless, or connect wirelessly via Bluetooth.
Will the A2+ Wireless’s range work between more than one room inside my house?
In most cases, Yes! The overall range you can expect will vary depending on the device you use with the A2+ Wireless, as well as things like the type of construction used in walls you'll be transmitting through. In our testing, most mobile devices like smartphones and tablets will have the best range, some of which can exceed 100 ft in good conditions, even through one wall. Laptops and desktop computers in our testing generally had less overall range with an average of around 70 ft in similar good conditions through a single wall.
The A2+ Wireless has a built in USB digital-to-analog converter (DAC), but can I also use a different DAC?
While the DAC in the A2+ Wireless is better than what is built into most computers, adding a 24-bit DAC, such as our D1 or D3, would still be a benefit to audio quality.
Do I need to install any special software apps or drivers for the A2+ Wireless?
No extra software or drivers are needed. The A2+ Wireless is compatible with any device that supports Bluetooth, and the A2DP profile for streaming stereo audio. This includes most smartphones, tablets, and computers. For computers that don't include BLuetooth support out of the box, you can simply add a USB Bluetooth adapter.
The same is also true for the USB connection on the A2+, which uses plug-and-play drivers provided by your computer's OS. The A2+ USB input is compatible out of the box with Windows and Mac computers, iPhones and iPads when using Apple's lightning USB 3 adapter along with a fast wall charger, and should work with most Android Smartphones and Tablets as well.
When I connect a turntable to my A2+ Wireless, why is the volume extremely low?
Some turntables do not have a built-in preamp and as a result, you will need to add an external phono preamp between your turntable and A2+ Wireless. Many turntables, however, (such as the Music Hall USB-1 or Audio Technica AT-LP120) have a built-in preamp and include a switch on the back for "line" or “phono”. For Audioengine powered speakers you want to select "line".
If A2+ Wireless is paired and connected to my phone via Bluetooth, do I need to do anything else to play music?
Once your A2+ Wireless is paired and connected via Bluetooth, then any app (TIDAL, Music, Spotify, etc.) will automatically play your music through Bluetooth.
Will my music have a delay through the A2+ Wireless if I’m watching a movie or music video?
Though overall latency can be affected by some external factors (including but not limited to signal strength, and even simply being physically further away from the speakers), Bluetooth on the A2+ Wireless generally has a delay of about 30ms (milliseconds) so you should be able to watch videos from Youtube, for example, and stream out the audio to the A2+ Wireless without any significant or noticeable lag between the video and audio.
Can I connect multiple sources to the A2+ Wireless? Can I stream via Bluetooth and use the USB input at the same time?
Yes, you can use multiple sources with the A2+ Wireless just fine. The analog inputs on the A2+ Wireless are always active. They will play at the same time as the Bluetooth or USB input. However, Bluetooth and USB share the internal DAC, so you can only listen to one at a time, and Bluetooth takes priority. If you're using USB for example, and start using Bluetooth, USB will mute and Bluetooth will take over. Depending on your source, if you pause or disconnect from Bluetooth the speakers may automatically switch back to USB after a few seconds.
Is the A2+ Wireless compatible with TIDAL music streaming service?
The short answer is yes! You can use TIDAL on any compatible source device (PC, Mac, iPhone Android, etc.). The A2+ Wireless is compatible with all of these devices as well since they almost universally also include Bluetooth.
OK, so If I can use the A2+ Wireless with TIDAL, how come you're not listed on TIDALs website?
From what we understand the devices listed on TIDAL’s website are network media servers with the TIDAL app already installed on their operating systems, that’s all. No difference in audio quality or anything else as compared to their downloadable app, just that TIDAL comes pre-installed on those devices. The only notable exception is that if you're listening to TIDAL on a computer, the only web browser that supports the full audio quality is Google Chrome.
Does A2+ Wireless come with speaker grills?
Our woofers are made of aramid fiber and the tweeter domes are silk. Both of these materials are very robust and can handle quite a bit of abuse. For our A-series speakers we decided against grill covers as they do tend to color the sound a bit. However, without speaker grills they are more cat and kid-friendly! If you do prefer speakers with grills, you can check out our HD3 speakers here:
Can I use the A2+ Wireless with my iPad or iPhone via USB to bypass the internal DAC and get better sound?
Absolutely! You will need to pick up Apple's Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter, which allows a USB connection to the iPad (and, as of iOS7, the iPhone). Then just hook up as you would from a computer. You can even charge your iPhone or iPad while you use it this way!
Can I use the A2+ Wireless with other tablets or smartphones like Samsung Galaxy or Microsoft Surface?
Yes! If your tablet or smartphone has a USB output and supports USB audio (refer to the manufacturers’ documentation), then it will work with A2+ Wireless's USB input. You'll most likely also need an OTG adapter cable to connect from your tablet to the USB input on the A2+ Wireless. These are generally available from the manufacturer of your tablet/smartphone, local electronic stores, or even online retailers.
