The AudioEngine B2 is anything but another uninspiring Bluetooth speaker
What's that beauty, you asked? It's the new AudioEngine B2 Bluetooth speaker in all its Zebrawood, Black Ash, and Walnut glory. Inside its classy box, you'll find two 2.75-inch Kevlar woofers, silk dome tweeters, and a 24-bit TI PCM5102A DAC which is a fine unit to have inside an upper-midrange speaker. Output is driven by a 60w peak amplifier, and frequency response is rated at 65Hz-22kHz. It's a Bluetooth speaker, after all - you'd be better off seeking your deep bass kick elsewhere. As for streaming quality, Bluetooth 4.0 and aptX encoding support is as good as it gets. There's also a 3.5mm Aux input in case you want to go wired.

The AE B2 looks quite appealing, with its $300 price tag seemingly fair for the kind of craftsmanship and, hopefully, sound quality you're getting with it. In case you're a tough sell, Audioengine lets you audition the speaker for 30 days and ask for refund. Full details are available below for audiophiles to prey on.
