Audioengine’s A1 Bluetooth desktop speakers

Looking for bluetooth speakers for the home, not commited to a full hifi setup? This might be the solution. Audioengine’s A1 Bluetooth desktop speakers offer a compact, premium powered 2-speaker music system offering versatile, high-quality stereo sound for budget-conscious music lover in all of you. The speaker cabinets each house a 2.75-inch aramid fibre woofer and a 0.75-inch silk dome tweeter, which combine for a frequency range of 65Hz to 22kHz

Due to the size of the speakers, the bass kick will be on the light side. However, the A1s have a variable LFE line output for adding a subwoofer so you can add that bit more punch if needed.

The A1 delivers a total of 60 watts, driven by dual class-D digital hybrid amplifiers that incorporate much of past Audioengine analogue designs and eschew any hint of DSP. The speakers are compatible with Bluetooth 5.0 and support AAC, AptX, and SBC codecs.

Each speaker is tiny (smaller than 6 inches) which makes them extremely portable and very small on space required. While they won’t challenge studio monitors, they might make a nice addition for home listening.

You can purchase an A1 Home Music System for $199 a pair. For more information, you can visit the company’s website.
