This review is from: Acoustic Energy AEGO M 2.1 active speaker system White (Accessory)
Being the proud owner of a Squeezebox, I spent quite some time choosing a set of speakers to compliment it. After some time searching and browsing various forums and looking at numerous product reviews (including What Hi-Fi who give these five out of five stars and say that they are the best speakers for under £100 you could possibly buy) I knew that they were for me.
Upon receiving them, as others have said, I was pleasantly surprised by the weight and build quality. But, once I had connected them to my Squeezebox, surprise quickly turned to amazement - the sound quality is quite simply stunning. I am now listening to music in a different light, and am kicking myself for not getting these sooner.
The bass from the subwoofer (about the size of a 'normal' speaker) is excellent on setting 1, setting 2 is for serious bass-heads (or people who enjoy annoying neighbours) and setting 3 means you can watch much loved ornaments bouncing themselves to an early grave whilst holding your hands over your ears (although at least you cannot hear the neighbours banging on the wall which is a blessing)!
The treble and mid range are pumped out from tiny speakers (as stated in other reviews not much bigger than a bag of sugar) but what great sound they pump out - clarity is truly stunning.
If you want a set of speakers for under £100 then there are loads out there, but if you want a set of speakers that sound stunning then regardless of your budget it is worth considering these - they are definitely up there with the big boys and at a fraction of the price.
