Well Bluetooth is known for a slight delay between origin and reception, but I'm sure the issue is more of a factor in certain applications. As for DJ-ing… I'm the last guy who'd know ;- )

You don’t produce music over Bluetooth man… it never matches. They can get close but these are ancient! MICRO USB?!?! The Bluetooth version isn’t gonna be the newest. Remember, it’s not a Bluetooth controller to a device, where the lag is minimal, your trying to connect to speakers. With a DAC. The audio has to be processed. So connecting to your phone from Bluetooth controller, the input will be quick.

If you are looking into these, I recommend reading my comments below. I convinced another user to try Vanatoo, and I think he was blown away. These are really bad, it’s the only reason I go out of my way to comment on these. Even my wife who can care less about audio thought AE didn’t sound good. These are easily one of the most disappointing audio purchases I’ve ever made.

I did not only recommend the Vanatoo.

The rest is “flawless.” You said enough to know you are very biased.

I've had a pair of these for 5-6 years, they're mindblowingly good for their size, you can also get an incredible amount of clear bass out of them even without a dedicated subwoofer. They're just that good. In a nod toward their customer service, when I moved the power adapter died in transit and I asked how to order a new one and they just sent me one for free.

B_MillHave you tried anything else? I think you would be shocked at other speakers performance compared to these.

jfox8Sure there are plenty of better sounding speakers out there but for the size, price and flexibility in input all in a small package it is hard to beat. If constraints such as size (sometimes we just don't have or don't want to have much larger speakers placed) and money was not as big of a deal then plenty of options abound. As how I use it which is a small set of bluetooth speakers for my pc desktop and macbook to hook up to it works like a treat. I def looked into the vanatoo zero but size and budget was a big factor (money saved goes towards a decent sub).

Own a pair of the non+ model, refurb off AE's site, with a cheap Monoprice flatboi sub. Have em going through a FiiO K5 Pro. My only references are the 6XX and T3 through the same DAC. These are definitely fun to listen to, but obviously don't compare when it comes to accuracy and whatever. The only reason I got these was because they look nice, and actually fit on the tiny standing desk in my tiny room. The built-in DAC is only used with a Nintendo switch through USB. Volume knob on the back is annoying. At least I get a little bit of adjustment with my DAC.

I have owned several Audioengine speakers and can tell you that they are a great value. It is unrealistic to expect audiophile quality for this price. However, these are an incredible value and sound huge for their size and price. They are extremely capable for your money and they don't require you to use much space or cash to get good sound.

The A2+s are distinctly mid-fi. There is a HUGE upper bass EQ bump that is non-defeatable. http://noaudiophile.com/AudioEngine_A2_Plus/. You can't get them to integrate well with a sub well because of it. The rest of the spectrum is good, not great. I have had many computer speakers and most were better than these. Many of the popular, inexpensive, 4 to 5" powered studio monitors sold at musicians sites are better. IMHO buyers fall in love with the size and finish, don't listen objectively.

I’m new to Drop, so I’m a bit confused. What’s the advantage of getting these through Drop rather than via Audioengine directly for the same price? (I should point out that I actually own these. I consider the sound to be so-so. Someone below mentioned “muddy” and I agree)

RedboneThere's really no advantage. It's just that every time you want to order something through Drop, you should check the prices at other retailers first to make sure you're actually getting a good deal

RedboneNone other than 30+ day delayed gratification. I have the older A2 model and they are great desktop speakers. I'd like to get the plus model at some point, but I can wait for an actual deal.

Can I be an asshole and break the bubble about these? Go get Mackie XBT 3/4/5/8, you will actually get Studio monitor sound quality rather than portable speaker sound quality! I wanted the AE A5 back then but when I compared them to low tier studio monitors, they literally became overpriced simple speakers. But if you want to step up higher, get decent 2/3 way near field monitors, correct them so they fit your room, add a sub if you go 2 way, mackie has one for the xbt line or the brand new (cheaper and probably better) Presonus Eris Sub8. Gorilla out, good luck droppers, don't get fooled by marketing schemes!

KSOgorillayou're right in a way, but it depends on what you're looking for... I have ribbon studio monitors and the sub that goes with them but they are way to analytical and unforgiving for lower quality files or bad mixes... If it comes to pure music enjoyment, I use my A2's instead, along with the studio monitor sub... YMMV?

SubhunterI learned something critical messing with studio monitors, speakers, headphones, HiFi speakers, etc, you will lose your hearing listening to something that fakes what you're supposed to hear (unforgiving, analytical, accurate, flat etc). I noticed that I need to add more gain to my calibrated monitors after listening to different devices, it took me a couple of hours to get my hearing back. I tested in-ear hearing aids which are basically flat and accurate in-ear monitors, they are insanely expensive and insanely accurate and analytical, yet they fix your hearing (just did tests to see what they do), I gave up on everything that hypes, fakes what you're actually supposed to hear. Since then I can lower down the volume and still hear everything there is, of course with better hardware, better room acoustics, and calibration's it will be way better. I suggested the Mackie's cause they do sound like quality monitors for their price, games, movies, all the stuff that's being applied to by the community here, tho they don't belong to the group of the "accurate, flat, etc, etc" that's a completely different price point and quality, you will pay twice and even three times more for something to be that aka "mastering monitors", I simply can't recommend them to everybody, they are expensive, they serve a specific purpose, not everybody can hear everything, you're limited by the ability of your hearing, unless you force fix them and try and maintain low volumes for you ears to not lose it, it's complicated and takes some discipline I guess, I just naturally love silence, I hate loudness, it irritates, I can't for the life of me listen to concerts unless they are orchestral with live instruments, and still if it's a bit too loud it just hurts my ears.
