A compact, premium powered 2-speaker music system offering versatile, high-quality stereo sound for the budget-conscious music lover. Wired or wireless connections including aptX Bluetooth from your phone, tablet or computer, or good old analog from that vintage turntable or 80’s Sony tape deck.
THE POWER OF TWO
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 sit-anywhere sound, playing the music you love, without missing a single beat. The difference between listening to your music, and hearing ALL of it.

AUDIOENGINE SIGNATURE SOUND
DESIGN DRIVEN BY YOUR MUSIC. INSPIRED BY YOU.
Since 2005, the Audioengine team has been designing and manufacturing its own speaker drivers and other critical components. In other words, A1, along with our other speakers, is not a box-built system with off-the-shelf parts, but includes custom-designed components constructed to our specifications. What we do not fabricate directly inside our factories, we have built to our specifications.
Constructed with similar custom components found in the award-winning A2+ Speakers, the A1 boasts aramid fiber woofers, silk tweeters, and built-in power amps wrapped in precision tuned, hand-crafted cabinets. Everything you’d expect from an Audioengine product reimagined for the budget-conscious music lover.

MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION
0.7″ (18 mm) thick MDF cabinets

2.75″ (70 mm) aramid fiber woofers with advanced voice coils
To minimize unwanted resonances and distortion, Audioengine cabinets have thick high-resin MDF walls with extensive internal bracing. Heavy internal sound-damping material is used to reduce unwanted sound reflections inside the cabinet. All cabinet edges are rounded which look great and reduce high-frequency diffraction effects on the front baffles. The A1 cabinet contains tuned, front-port slots.
FURNITURE GRADE FINISHES
The A1 cabinets are in versatile, grey finish offering a modern compliment to any small space or desktop.
Audioengine designs and manufactures our own tweeters, woofers, and other critical components. In other words, these are not “box built” speakers with off-the-shelf parts but custom-designed to our specifications. What we do not fabricate directly in our factory we have made to our designs (parts such as transformers, magnets, and wiring harnesses, for example). The cabinets, drivers, bass port designs, amplifiers, and crossovers are all painstakingly tuned together for each Audioengine model. This, in turn, makes for a much more efficient system that requires much less power than passive speakers and a separate integrated amplifier or similar A/V components.
BASED ON STUDIO MONITOR DESIGNS
Studio monitor speakers are used by producers and engineers in recording and production studios. They are designed with a theoretical flat frequency response which allows the engineer to create a final mix in such a way that the recorded music will sound good on most other speakers. Although Audioengine speakers are not designed to be up-close “nearfield” studio monitors, we do carry over much of the same higher-end technology, components, and design philosophy for all Audioengine speaker systems.
EFFICIENT INTEGRATED DESIGN
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. We build 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.
HIGH-QUALITY BLUETOOTH AUDIO
The Bluetooth built into the A1 Wireless 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 Wireless 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.
Extended-range wireless. Most Bluetooth implementations have very limited range, typically within just one room. But with careful signal management circuitry and antenna tuning, we offer a superior solution that has up to 3 times the range of standard Bluetooth for multi-room use, with no degradation in audio quality.
16 bit DAC: The A1 Bluetooth receiver utilizes the PCM 2704C DAC, known for extremely-low quantization noise in the audio band, with a built-in analog low-pass filter that removes the high-frequency components of the noise-shaping signal.
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 the woofer retains its shape when being driven at high levels.
Both drivers are directly video shielded and allow the user to place the speakers within a few inches of a video monitor. This shielding also offers protection for hard-drive digital music players.
