Audioengine A5+ Powered Speakers Now With Wireless Streaming

Audioengine today announced a Bluetooth enabled version of their A5+ powered desktop speakers called the A5+ Wireless. The $500 speakers come as a stereo pair with upgraded aesthetics and A5+ signature sound.

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 all your favorite streaming apps play instantly from your phone, tablet, and computer.

What’s missing from A5+ Wireless is built-in voice commands like many are used to with Amazon Echo. However, A5+ Wireless will play music from any streaming app on your smartphone via Bluetooth connectivity. So in a sense, you could tell Siri to play music once your phone is paired, as well as typical voice commands may normally ask. The only downside is your smartphone has to be nearby the speaker.

The company says A5+ Wireless delivers the audio performance and thoughtful design expected from Audioengine. Custom components include Kevlar woofers, silk tweeters, high-fidelity Bluetooth aptX-HD, and built-in power amps wrapped in hand-built wood cabinets with furniture-grade finish. Inputs are always ready to go, and there are no buttons to push. Although a volume control knob is available on the left speaker.
