Holy Crap!

UPS just dropped off my AudioEngine 5 speakers. Wanting to see what all the fuss was about, I hooked them up to my X5L and chose the first song to play as "Amarantine" by Enya.

Like I said, Holy Crap! Solid bass where you can feel the pressure on your face, and highs that sparkle.
These things really are incredible, and as was said: "For that price they damn well better be good..." Yes, they are that DAMN good, and I've heard speakers that cost 3 times these that didn't sound as good as these.

One of the things that sold me on them is that they include a jack specifically made for running a sub-woofer off of them.
I had assumed I was going to do that because of the relatively small size of the main drivers, but after hearing them, I can't imagine why I would feel the need. I only ran my X5L MachIII bass setting at 3 and they still pumped out some good solid bass.

I've thrown good money away on a lot of things in my life, but this $350 was some of the best I've spent.

My .02... (actually, more like "My $350" )

Ogg and Flac or I don't listen, and the Cowon X5L and S9 do it best for me.
