"Speakers go loud... and then go silent."2.0 starson by vader1986
Pros: I've had my speakers for about 1 week and have had them playing wirelessly, beautifully, at about 30% of max volume.
Cons: Today, to entertain myself while during chores throughout my house, I turned the speakers up to 70% of max. They played beautifully for 30 minutes, then went silent. Googling over-heating & audioengine, I learned that this is a common issue.
Summary: Perhaps as Steve Jobs said, I am holding the speakers wrong. The bottom-line is that these speakers are flawed - period. Any review that touts the fact that the speakers are loud is incomplete and frankly, dishonest. The speakers go loud, but cannot be played loudly, so what is the point. The response from the folks at Audioengine is... oh yeah, that. They suggest a fan. Horrible business ethics
These speakers are poorly design. They do not have a proper heat-sink and therefore cannot perform as advertised.
