Not using as my two channel system but I have the HD6's and subwoofer hooked up to my iMac using a DragonFly Dac.
Music sounds great!
Why all the Audioengine threads from newbies? Did audioengine pay a company to create social media buzz around their products and these new members are bots?
I think audioengine speakers are very good desk speakers. Compared to the plastic Logitech speakers my company provides they are quite listenable. But they aren't really audiophile.
I have been using the HD3s for a year or so. I just bought the HD4s for my other desk and returned them because they lose connectivity and I have to unplug, turn off, and reinitiate them too often. Audioengine said "maybe we'll address this in a future software update". I said, good luck with that and returned them.
My A5+ are terrific sounding at the far corners of my standing desk. Fed by a Schiit stack that I must sometimes use for headphones, the soundstage they present is wonderful. Nice nearfield speakers from my experience. I have never set them up set out into a room so I have no idea what they sound like in that arrangement.
