We have reviewed the Audioengine D3 DAC some time back and we came back impressed by the tiny dimensions, excellent build quality and good sound quality. So when the Audioengine A2+ also came for review I was more than a little excited to run them through their paces.
The Audioengine A2+ is not a completely new product perse and it’s largely based on their earlier Audioengine A2 which was already a fantastic product. So how do you improve on an already outstanding product without taking the pricing to a new level?. One way was to add more features to the product. So Audioengine added a DAC to the Audioengine A2 and made a few sonic tweaks too and the resulting product is the Audioengine A2+.
Now the Audioengine A2 is discontinued but it’s still available online for sale in a few places. So in case you already own a decent DAC and hence don’t require the services of the built-in DAC you might be able to score an Audioengine A2. The Audioengine A2 shaves off $50 on the price of the A2+, but is the inbuilt DAC of the A2+ is worth that $50 price difference if you lack a good DAC already. The Audioengine A2+ are available in black and while color options just like the earlier A2.
