The US designed Audio Engine HD 6 active speakers provide a near-on perfect solution with multiple sources accommodated via inbuilt Bluetooth for music streaming from a Smartphone,inbuilt DAC for TV connection and of course they have an input for a turntable with its own phono preamplifier.The quality starts with the dual class A/B mono-block amplifiers providing the Kevlar woofers and silk dome tweeters with dynamic power to deliver an excellent bass, soundstage and dynamic midrange.The hand-built cabinets with furniture grade finishes in Walnut and Cherry are an aesthetic delight.
Audioengine have included features from some of our best-selling products making HD6 quite possibly the most versatile powered speaker available. Stream TIDAL, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube – or any streaming service or media player – wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or computer. For the highest resolution connect to the optical input, which is perfect for network music players. It can also be used to connect any component with an optical output, including your TV system. You can also connect your favorite turntable or a subwoofer, so no matter how you connect and listen, HD6 has you covered.
HD6 was designed for audio performance, but speakers obviously also need to look good so we’ve included furniture-grade wood veneers, aluminum trim accents, and detachable magnetic grills that blend with any decor. Available in Satin Black as well as real Walnut and Cherry wood at no additional cost if you want to really show them off.
Built-in power amplifiers save space and eliminate the need to connect HD6 to a stereo receiver or external power amp. Simply plug the left speaker into a power outlet and connect the included speaker wire from the left to the right passive speaker. All internal components of the HD6 are designed and tuned together, so you’ll get Audioengine’s Signature Sound and a much more efficient system than traditional separate passive speakers and amplifiers.
HD6 is Audioengine’s latest statement on high-quality and highly-affordable audio. The all-new woofers have diecast aluminum frames allowing the lower-end to really perform. Also new are the silk dome tweeters which have been upgraded for even smoother, more extended highs, superior stereo separation, and incredible imaging. The HD6 speaker cabinets are also a new design that are thicker and more stable which reduces unwanted resonances.
