Play anything. Hear everything.
The A1 Wireless Speaker System pumps out stage-quality, stereo sound for the ultimate at-home listening experience. A premium powered, two-speaker setup that offers excellent music reproduction and surrounds you with a sense of presence that one-speaker systems often miss.
Two speakers vs. one means enjoying room-filling sound, playing the music you love, without missing a single beat. The difference between listening to your music, and hearing ALL of it.
Affordable sound that doesn't miss a beat.
The A1 is a breath of fresh air in the world of home audio. A much-needed departure from the industry norm and the idea that big sound means big bucks. For the price, no audio system on the market performs better in terms of sound quality and clarity than the A1.
A custom-built home stereo system that combines simple setup, versatile playback capabilities and an impressive soundstage so you hear ALL of your music. The way it was meant to be heard.
Fits in and fills up any room.
You don't need a big music system to enjoy expansive, high-resolution sound. Experience the emotion and detail you’d expect from larger systems, with the convenience of a compact system that will fit in and fill up any room in your home.
Modestly designed to take on space limitations, the A1 gives you more room to play your music, your way. Seamlessly stream from any device via aptX Bluetooth, or directly connect to your turntable, computer or TV.
Smaller speakers. Bigger soundstage. Incredible imaging. More room for dancing.
The A1 Speakers are not just another great-sounding Audioengine speaker pair, but a complete, Bluetooth music system that works with all your apps, music, and devices. Blending the best of the past and present, A1 combines stunning good looks with truly-useful features.
The Bluetooth built into the A1 speakers features aptX coding, which is an advanced Bluetooth audio codec with very impressive sound. And even if your phone or tablet does not have aptX, the A1 Bluetooth solution is backwards-compatible with SBC and AAC codecs, so you can wirelessly stream music from any Bluetooth-enabled device and still enjoy all your music. High-fidelity Bluetooth aptX that really works and sounds great.
The A1 system works with all your apps, music, and devices so no matter how you listen, whether it's Tidal, Spotify, Pandora, etc., all your favourite streaming apps play instantly.
Most Bluetooth implementations have a very limited range, typically within just one room. But with careful signal management circuitry and antenna tuning, Audioengine offers a superior solution that has up to 3 times the range of standard Bluetooth for multi-room use, with no degradation in audio quality. Audioengine Bluetooth products have very low latency when compared to most Bluetooth receivers, around 30ms.
Audioengine's built-in analogue power amplifiers sound incredible compared to lower-cost digital amps found in mass-produced brands.
Audioengine designs and manufactures their own speaker drivers and other critical components. In other words, the A1 is not a box-built system with off-the-shelf parts, but includes custom-designed components constructed to their specifications. What they do not fabricate directly inside their factories they have made to their specific designs. Parts such as circuit boards, transformers, magnets, and wiring harnesses, for example.
The speaker cabinets, drivers, innovative bass port designs, amplifiers, and passive crossovers are all critically tuned together for each Audioengine model. This, in turn, makes for a much more efficient system that requires less power than passive speakers and a separate integrated amplifier or similar A/V components. Audioengine builds all this goodness into the left speaker cabinet to make it super-easy to connect your smartphone, tablet, computer, TV, network player or any other audio product.
The amplifiers in powered Audioengine speakers are located in the left speaker and are a conservatively-rated class A/B analog monoblock design. This is a more traditional speaker/amplifier marriage which provides excellent quality audio and greater flexibility. All circuit boards for the power and preamp sections are vertically mounted for maximum mechanical shock protection.
Audioengine uses audiophile-quality, ferrofluid-cooled silk dome tweeters with neodymium magnets. Silk tweeters hold up well under high power and the edge-driven design gives very smooth response. The woofers are aramid fiber woven glass composite with rubber surrounds. Aramid fiber is obviously very strong, which means that the woofer retains its shape when being driven at high levels. The speaker materials and construction are robust enough to stand up to some serious thrashing, so speaker grills are not needed and they will sound and look great after many years of use.
Audioengine has been changing the way people listen to music since 2005. We believe in the power of music and our passion is to inspire you to listen every day. Great sound, beautiful design and useful features.
