My Cambridge Soundworks system just failed for the third time (I had to replace the receiver a year ago and my second subwoofer from them just went out). Rather than going for yet another repair that was going to take 6 weeks (who can live without music for 6 weeks?) I started looking for a new, simpler solution.
At first I was considering the Apple Hifi, but after reading mixed reviews and rumors of it being discontinued, I came across Audioengine 5, a powered bookshelf system. I have never seen so much praise for any product. It seems like everyone who’s checked it out has been blown away by the quality and the sound.
I found a great deal on them from One Call and the new speakers got here today.
Simply outstanding. Easy set up. Remarkable quality. The sound is room-filling, crystal clear, with more than enough bass (there’s even a sub out if you want to add a subwoofer, but it’s not really necessary). And they work with pretty much any device you have (with all sorts of cables included).
These are the perfect speakers. Highly recommended.
High praise for One Call too. I called them for shipping info before ordering and the guy who helped me really knew his shit. Best customer service I’ve seen in years.
