    Bulldozer EP


    Remastered By Steve Albini And Bob Weston At Chicago Mastering


    Big Black was started by Steve Albini in 1982 while he
    was living in Evanston, Illinois, and attending Northwestern
    University. Lungs, the first Big Black release, was recorded by
    Steve in 1982 on a borrowed 4-track. He played everything on
    the EP himself except the sax bleating courtesy of pal John
    Bohnen and the drums courtesy of Roland. Soon after, Steve
    recruited Jeff Pezzati (Naked Raygun) to help him out on bass.
    Santiago Durango (Naked Raygun) joined them on guitar. In
    1983, together with live drummer Pat Byrne, they recorded the
    Bulldozer EP. It was initially released in a limited edition
    galvanized metal album jacket on Fever Records. By 1984, the
    band had done some touring and signed a deal with Homestead
    Records, releasing the Racer X EP, the Il Duce 7", and their
    first full-length Atomizer as well as The Hammer Party CD.
    Shortly after those releases, freed from their Homestead deal,
    Big Black came to Touch and Go. In 1992, Touch and Go re-released the Bulldozer EP.


    By 1987, Big Black released two additional 7"s, The
    Headache EP, as well as their second full-length Songs About
    Fucking. They toured extensively (for Big Black). And they
    broke up. To quote the album insert in Songs About Fucking:
    "Hey, breaking up is an idea that has occurred to far too few
    groups. Sometimes to the wrong ones."


    When they broke up, Santiago Durango decided to go
    to law school and is now a lawyer. While in law school, he released two EP's on Touch and Go Records as Arsenal. Steve
    Albini went on to form Rapeman and then Shellac. He also
    owns and operates Electrical Audio recording studio in Chicago.

    Black Mountain (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

    Limited Edition Grey Vinyl


    It's only a clichÉ because it's true, but the greatest records are timeless. Black Mountain's self-titled debut
    album is just such a record. It is a new classic rock, with reference points arcane and clear, its sound fresh,
    unfamiliar and irresistible. The work of a small collective of musicians operating from Vancouver, Canada,
    far from any industry buzz but firmly in the eye of their own storm of creativity, Black Mountain's debut
    album was, of course, a beginning, but it also marked an ending.


    Begun as the fourth album for Jerk With A Bomb, the 4-track bedroom project turned non-rock band led
    by Stephen McBean that preceded Black Mountain, the songs grew from skeletal sessions cut by McBean
    and Josh Wells and honed on the road in empty North American clubs along with Amber Webber. "We'd lay
    down the bed tracks, the guitars and drums," remembers McBean. "Matt [Camirand, bass] joined, and we
    changed the band name after a dream of how life could be different in the B section between Black Flag and
    Black Sabbath. Josh's roommate Jeremy [Schmidt, keys] was lurking about. We asked him if he wanted to
    add some synth bleeps or whatever. He came back with all these orchestrated keyboard parts, and we said,
    'Oh, you should probably join the band now.'"


    They cut the album at the Hive and their jam space in Vancouver, recording in "a big cement room with a
    tall ceiling, nice boomy acoustics, lots of natural reverb, on an 8-track reel-to-reel tape recorder." During the
    sessions, these elemental first tracks found their true shape: wry & giddy, hypnotic & gracefully heavy, the
    dark and powerful blues, and mysterious chugging murk.


    The album's initial success saw the band take to the road, leaving their Vancouver enclave for stages across
    the world. "It felt like there was a real explosion of excitement at shows," remembers McBean. "We wouldn't
    write setlists, we'd just feel the energy in the room and call things out, jamming on songs like 'No Hits' and
    'Druganaut.' It was a good time for live rock'n'roll: DJ booths were being transformed back to drum risers,
    people were digging 20 minute heady jams and there were bands like Comets On Fire and Oneida out there
    who we felt kinship with. I was into Faust and Amon Duul but had no idea of the scene of modern bands
    doing that stuff. And then we met those bands, and it was cool. And then we went on tour with
    Coldplay and the adventures continued.


    Their jaunt across the world as guests of perhaps the biggest band in the world is a tale for another time,
    perhaps: the start of Black Mountain's next chapter, and all that followed. For now, savor the compact,
    spacey brilliance of that cosmic, heavy and subtle debut album, expanded now with a raft of delicious bonus
    tracks scavenged from the Black Mountain Army archives.

    The Big Black And The Blue

    First Aid Kit, the Swedish folk duo composed of sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg, recorded their debut album, The Big Black & The Blue with their father at their home studio in Sweden. Released in North America in May of 2010 via Wichita Records, the effort quickly earned praise from AOL Music, NPR's All Things Considered, Nylon and SPIN and landed on numerous 2010 'Best Of' lists.


    In support of the endeavor, the sisters performed at the Austin City Limits festival, CMJ Music Marathon and SXSW, toured the US twice and found time to record a Blue Series 7 of Buffie Sainte Marie's Universal Soldier with Jack White at his request for Third Man Records.


    In 2011 the band toured with both Lykke Li and Bright Eyes and recorded their sophomore album, The Lions Roar with producer, Mike Mogis. Released in January of 2012, it was greeted heartily by press and radio and broke onto the Billboard 200 album chart.


    Wichita Recordings is thrilled to offer the reissue of First Aid Kits' debut album The Big Black & The Blue which features live show standouts Ghost Town, Hard Believer and I Met Up With The King among others.

    Black Metal

    In its review of Dean Blunt's The Redeemer - which they later named their top album of 2013 - FACT called Blunt "the premier art prankster
    of our time," while acknowledging his earnestness; Tiny Mix Tapes,
    who would give the album the #2 spot in their best of the year rank- ings, praise the work for its liberating "short-circuiting of the bound- aries of taste and instilled critical response," while speaking to the
    album's near-paradoxical emotional depth.


    Blunt's newest odyssey, Black Metal, rides this tension between criti- cal detachment and mainlined human feeling, and in fact he climbs
    ever-steeper theoretical heights just as his emotionally stark songs
    become, at times, startlingly intimate.


    A true multi-media vanguard, Blunt employs original instrumentation
    along with elements of pastiche and his unique vocal performances
    to create songs and recordings that are not only beautiful, but also tie
    into his larger project that incorporates music, visual art, and the writ- ten word to play with identity, cultural signifiers, and artistic agency.


    But Black Metal is above all a brilliant, majestic collection of songs, encompassing everything from hypnotic long-form experiments to
    ballads almost disarming in their sweet simplicity, swirling equally
    with fascinating sounds and fascinating ideas. Blunt's influences are
    wide-ranging, from rock's underground pioneers (he quotes Sonic
    Youth in interviews; the album leads with a Big Star sample), to neo- classical composers, to early indie pop (another track samples The
    Pastels), to classic rock, hip-hop, and R&B. But rather than coldly
    compiling them, Blunt brings the works and genres he draws from
    into a new musical and cultural conversation.


    In the cover story to September's issue of The Wire, Blunt explains
    his relationship to his listeners: "Whatever is communicated through
    the purity of intention is out of my hands because I didn't know
    anything beyond that." With his newest, most accomplished, and
    most vexing album, Blunt invites us to draw our own conclusions in
    his expansive and fascinating world.

    Black Rhythm Happening

    This, the second Blue Note album by Eddie Gale, was released in 1969 and includes jazz heavy weight Elvin Jones on drums and sax man Jimmy Lyons. This is a blend of soul jazz, free form freak outs and a gospel-influenced street choir, and it's suggested listening for fans of Sun Ra & Brother Ah, John Coltrane's late '60s LPs, and Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler's more groove-oriented recordings. The original vinyl LPs go for big bucks on Ebay, and this is the first time this Blue Note album has ever been reissued. Remastered from the original master tapes with original artwork.

    Charlie Watts Meets The Danish Radio Big Band

    Before Charlie Watts became the best-known drummer on the planet with The Greatest rock 'n' Roll Band in the World he lived for a few months in Denmark. According to English trumpeter and flugelhorn player, Gerard Presencer, who is also a member of the Danish Radio Big Band, it was something he only found out about by chance when he and Charlie talked on the telephone in 2009


    "I landed a job with Danish Radio Big Band in 2009. A week or two after arriving in Copenhagen I got a call from Charlie. Later the idea dawned upon me for a return to his Jazz days over here after nearly 50 years. I spoke with my boss at the Danish Radio Big Band and went about putting this live project together. We agreed upon a week in Copenhagen in October 2010."


    They rehearsed for 4 days, then played a concert on the fifth day at the newly opened Danish Radio Concert Hall in Copenhagen. This concert was recorded for broadcast by Danish National Radio. Charlie and his long-time bassist Dave Green went to record shops and strolled around the city, with no need for security guards. Charlie made it clear that he did not want to be placed on a big riser above the band, as he found that this did not help the musicians to bond.


    In choosing the material, it was important to focus on the groove. According to Prescencer, "Having Dave Green on bass as special guest was an essential ingredient, as these two boyhood friends (next door neighbours growing up in Wembley, North London) have unspoken psychic connections that bassists and drummers, so there are times on this recording where their abundant empathy makes the rest of the band comfortable enough to really play out and take chances."


    The album includes seven tracks, including two Mick and Keith compositions, 'Paint it Black' and 'You Can't Always Get What You Want', both arranged by Prescencer and another one, 'Faction' that is based on another Stones' classic. There are also two by Charlie himself, both written with fellow drummer Jim Keltner.


    A day or two after the broadcast Prescencer began to think that the concert was so good it deserved to be heard more widely. "The Danish Radio needed very little convincing to hand over the recordings to me to work on, as well as Søren Frost our regular drummer and rhythm section consultant from the big band and the brilliant recording engineer, Lars C. Bruun. So, after several years work on this, we have produced this collection of music from our gig."


    Charlie Watts meets the Danish Radio Big Band is the kind of album that many jazz fans had probably given up hope of hearing. In the glory days of big band jazz and arrangers like Oliver Nelson coming up with brilliant music, albums like this were, if not commonplace, at least more readily available. The truth is there is nothing commonplace about this album, it is a sheer delight.


    Anyone who knows Charlie, knows how much he loves jazz. A few years ago when he and I were looking at a photo of the Stones playing in the 1960s he pointed at a particular cymbal and said, "I've still got that cymbal, but I don't use it on Stones' gigs, it's too good for them. I just use it on my jazz gigs." There's no doubt, that's the cymbal you hear on the first part of the 'Elvin Suite'.


    Charlie Watts is one of the great ambassadors for jazz and every jazz lover will relish this record, and the fact that Charlie is involved may bring jazz to the attention of some that are not sure if they like jazz. Listen to this and you know you do.

    Black Elvis / Lost In Space

    Kool Keith is an American rapper from The Bronx known for his surreal, abstract and often profane or incomprehensible lyrics. Kool Keith has recorded prolifically both as a solo artist and in group collaborations. After being part of the legendary hip hop formation Ultramagnetic MC's he debuted in 1996 as a profound solo artist. He is generally considered to be one of hip-hop's most eccentric and unusual personalities.


    By the big audience Kool Keith is mostly known as the voice of the number Smack My Bitch Up by the Prodigy, a fragment used without his consent.


    Black Elvis/Lost in Space is the fourth studio album by mc Kool Keith, but recorded under the alias of Black Elvis. This is the first album performed under this alias.


    Kool Keith uses very complex rhymes on various subject matters from Black Elvis' viewpoint on half of the album and on the other half elaborates on space travel and being lost in space. This is the first album for which Keith handled all of the production, although drum programming was done by Kutmasta Kurt and Marc Live.

    Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star


    Limited Edition Two-Tone Black On Black Picture Disc


    Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will continue its "Respect the Classics" tribute to many of hip-hop's finest with the vinyl release of rap icon Talib Kweli's
    four historic Rawkus Records albums, including the underground classic, Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star, in a limited edition two-tone black on black
    picture disc.


    Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star was originally released on August 18, 1998, to critical acclaim. The title is a reference to the Black Star Line, a shipping
    company founded by Pan-Africanist Marcus Garvey. The album deals with modern-day issues, philosophies and life in Brooklyn. The two MCs had
    planned to release solo albums around the same time, but decided instead to collaborate on a full-length album. The first single, "Definition (song)," is a
    reaction to hip-hop's fascination with death, dedicated to both Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G., with a chorus that gives a nod to Boogie Down
    Productions' "Stop the Violence." "Children's Story" is a re-imagination of the Slick Rick original, featuring Mos Def cautioning against materialism. The
    second single, "Respiration," featuring Common, includes a Hi-Tek produced beat that samples Don Randi's "The Fox" and another from the hip-hop
    documentary Style Wars. The track offers a melancholy ode to city life, with references to organic life functions such as breathing, eating and sleeping,
    but with an ominous edge, as Kweli raps about "sitting on shitty steps/we stooped to new lows, hell froze/the night the city slept." The album peaked at
    No. 53 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 13 on the Hip-Hop Albums chart, but has become considered a classic since then.

    Pressed On Gray Vinyl With Black Splatter


    A grimly glamorous ghoul who first slithered from the cobwebbed shadows of Charlotte, North Carolina, in the early 90s, WEDNESDAY 13 has firmly established himself as the world's premier purveyor of balls-out horror punk insanity. With a vivid and vile imagination that has endeared him to countless fans of riff-driven macabre over the last two decades, he has been one of rock's most prolific protagonists, spreading his credo of grave-robbing rock 'n' roll and Hallowe'en debauchery around the globe and unleashing a seemingly endless stream of blood-spattered albums and EPs.


    "All my favorite stuff, like KISS and ALICE COOPER and TWISTED SISTER, those guys set the bar pretty high," he states. "I always wanted to do something in the worlds of those bands. That's the blueprint. It had to be as outrageous and crazy as that and I wanted to be on someone's wall one day and have their parents say 'Oh my god, what is that?' The formula's still there from when I started doing it as a kid and started wanting to be in a band. It's just GI Joe and Dracula!"


    After several years of sharpening his creative teeth, WEDNESDAY 13 emerged from the fetid crypt of obscurity with his band FRANKENSTEIN DRAG QUEENS FROM PLANET 13, those masters of snotty schlock rock that released an astonishing five studio albums and six EPs between 1996 and 2002. Always the leader of the revolting pack, WEDNESDAY 13 then became a bona fide international rock star as frontman for the MURDERDOLLS, his collaboration with SLIPKNOT's Joey Jordison. The band took the world by storm, with Europe and the UK, in particular, succumbing to the feral charms of 2002 debut album, »Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls«; a raucous eruption of big tunes and bad attitude that noisily redefined the horror punk genre. After MURDERDOLLS went on an extended hiatus in 2004, WEDNESDAY 13 embarked on a widely lauded solo career that again provided him with an outlet for his relentless outpouring of fiendish musical and lyrical ideas. Albums like »Transylvania 90210« (released by Roadrunner in 2005), »Fang Bang« and »Skeletons« all cemented our pallid hero's reputation as the bastard son of ALICE COOPER and THE MISFITS, while his outlaw country project, BOURBON CROW and one-off glam metal vehicle, GUNFIRE 76 proved that he had sufficient versatility to survive outside the graveyard and abattoir.


    MURDERDOLLS reconvened in 2010 for the vicious »Women And Children Last« album and another successful world tour before disappearing once more into the freezing midnight fog, leaving WEDNESDAY to revive his solo career with a few thousand volts of wicked electricity yet more highly praised albums and tours including 2014's scintillating acoustic opus »Undead Unplugged« and the following year's thunderous »Monsters Of The Universe: Come Out & Plague«. However, absolutely nothing that WEDNESDAY has created in the past has even touched upon the horrifying potency and allure of his brand new studio album, »Condolences«.


    Frustrated with the arduous process of releasing his own music, our favorite black-hearted freak has thrown himself and his music into a whirling maelstrom of reinvention. The result is not just the heaviest and most authentically disturbing record of the great man's career but also a huge creative leap forward, neatly encapsulated by the new album's simple and direct title.


    "It's more of a serious WEDNESDAY 13 record, I guess," he says. "The campiness has gone and it's taken a darker vibe. It's definitely not in the camp, sleazy world anymore. The band is visually stronger and that's taken things to a new level. Normally my album titles are parodies of something, like »Women And Children Last«, that's a VAN HALEN album title gone wrong! (laughs) So I wanted to make sure that this record came across as a brand new version of WEDNESDAY 13."


    In musical terms, »Condolences« showcases WEDNESDAY's growing obsession with the world of heavy metal and its endless possibilities for exploring tales of horror and violence. Produced by renowned studio guru Zeuss, new songs like anthemic first single 'What The Night Brings' and the pile-driving 'Blood Sick' still exhibit a dash of B-movie weirdness and are full of WEDNESDAY's trademark twisted lyrics, but where previous albums were rooted in the worlds of punk rock and glam metal, »Condolences« is a full-on modern metal record with gigantic balls and the attitude to match. From the glowering menace of 'Good Riddance' to the grandiose hellishness of the album's 7-minute title track, it's living, breathing, murdering proof that the WEDNESDAY 13 of 2017 means business. And business is mean.


    "The punk rock vibe has left the building and it's become a full-on metal vibe," WEDNESDAY agrees. "I've been the horror-punk guy for years, but this is horror metal. It's just evolution. Over the last ten years, I've become a metalhead for the most part. That second MURDERDOLLS record just amped the whole thing up, and the guys in the band have influenced me with so much other stuff. It's not just me with my SEX PISTOLS, ALICE COOPER and RAMONES records anymore! (laughs) Now I've got my band incorporating everything from death metal to rock'n'roll. It's all across the boards. There are no rules. We can do whatever we want, whatever fits."


    Manifestly the strongest, heaviest and most individual album of his lengthy career, »Condolences« promises to push WEDNESDAY 13 into heavy music's upper echelons once again. With determined plans to tour relentlessly in support of the new record, the future is looking dark, dangerous, exhilarating and wildly, unapologetically theatrical.


    "It's non-stop touring once the record comes out," WEDNESDAY concludes. "We just did our first video for 'What The Night Brings' and the visuals are really cool. I've incorporated a lot of stuff I've been doing live, like this devil character I've been transforming into at shows, and that got worked in. We're taking the music, the imagery and the entire stage show up a level. It's gonna be a full-on theatrical stage production, so I'll be busy as fuck on stage! I've been doing this shit for so many years, I started thinking 'How can I make this fun again?' (laughs)"

    Dynamic, well designed, and well made, the 5+ offers an elegant solution to the problem of choosing a high value desktop/nearfield monitor.

    - Steven Stone, Playback, AVGuide.com


    Premium Powered Bookshelf Speakers

    Audioengine 5+ (A5+) Premium Powered Speakers deliver audiophile-quality sound and features at a price that continues to set the standard for affordable high-quality audio. Connect your iDevice, computer, TV, or any other audio component for great stereo sound in any room.


    Affordable Audio

    The goal of Audioengine is to provide a high-end listening experience at affordable prices with easy to use, high-quality products. The Audioengine 5 powered speaker system was Audioengine's flagship model and has become a best seller. The new A5+ has the same award-winning signature sound as the original A5 but includes customer-requested upgrades and features.


    Versatile

    With custom Kevlar woofers, silk dome tweeters, and hand-built cabinets, the Audioengine 5+ includes a remote control, dual audio inputs and enhanced thermal management. You can charge your iDevice via the USB power port and also add a subwoofer to the variable output. Connect Audioengine 5+ to your computer's headphone jack or pair with a USB DAC to achieve an even higher level of sound quality. The Audioengine 5+ works with any computer and there's no software to install or settings to change.


    Easy Setup

    Built-in power amplifiers save space and eliminate the need to connect Audioengine 5+ to a stereo receiver or external power amp. Simply plug the left speaker into an AC outlet and connect the included speaker wire from the left to right speaker. All internal components of the A5+ are tuned together, providing a more efficient system requiring less power than passive speakers and amplifiers. With superior stereo separation and incredible imaging, A5+ has a clear sonic advantage over boomboxes or all-in-one systems.


    Small Speakers, Big Bass

    You won't hear any enhanced super-mega-hyper-monster boomy bass from these powered speakers. As with the original A5, the low end from the A5+ is real bass, very near to the originally-recorded music. From rap to classical to movies, you'll get tight, punchy bass with an awesome growl that will make you smile - regardless of the volume level.


    Hear the Difference

    The Audioengine 5+ Premium Powered Speaker System delivers the audio performance and aesthetic quality expected from Audioengine and continues to close the gap between your computer music and home hi-fi. Even if you're not an audio enthusiast we guarantee your music will sound better!

    There's a lot to like about the AP4s. These mighty mites excel at reproducing voices and instruments in space. Bright highs and uncluttered midrange are two of the speaker's greatest strengths.

    - Audio Video Revolution


    A high-performance bookshelf speaker pair with the same great looks and sound as our powered speakers. Experience the signature Audioengine sound and quality but without our built-in amplifiers. Beautiful, small, and affordable, P4 is the perfect choice for your living room, bedroom or office and an ideal surround speaker for use with other Audioengine speakers in your home theater or stereo system.


    Why passive speakers?

    The P4 passive speakers are full-sounding bookshelf speakers in a satellite-sized package. The goal with P4 was to design a small but powerful bookshelf speaker for people that already have surround receivers or amplifiers and are looking for the same Audioengine sound and quality in a passive loudspeaker.


    Already have an amplifier?

    If you already have an power amp or don't want to give up that big surround receiver then the P4 is for you. The P4 has excellent bass response for its size, which is evident when used either as stereo speakers or as satellite surround speakers in your home theater setup. P4 sounds great sitting on stands, on a bookshelf, or mounted on a wall using the integrated threaded inserts which are compatible with most wall or ceiling mount bracket systems.


    Part of the Family

    Audioengine active and passive speaker models share a similar voicing and overall tuning so that you are assured a matched system no matter which of our speakers or Audioengine wireless adapters you decide to add to your system.


    Versatile

    The P4 passive speakers are perfect for digital hybrid amplifiers (Class-D, Class-T, etc.) as well as most stereo receivers, integrated amps, and tube amplifiers. The P4 has a 4 ohm impedance rating but will sound great when connected to almost any receiver or power amp with 4, 6 or 8 ohm speaker output impedance.


    Hear the Difference

    The Audioengine P4 sets a new level of quality and easy setup. Mount a pair on a wall or stand as surround speakers in a home theater system or place them on a shelf or table for a compact stereo setup. Even if you're not an audio enthusiast we guarantee you will still hear a difference!

    Through The Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol 2)


    180 Gram Clear Vinyl


    This album was spawned by three coinciding events -- the need to acknowledge the death of band co-founder Brian Jones (whose epitaph graces the inside cover) in July of 1969; the need to get Honky Tonk Women, then a huge hit single, onto an LP; and to fill the ten-month gap since the release of Beggars Banquet and get an album with built-in appeal into stores ahead of the Stones' first American tour in three years. The fact that the Stones had amassed a sufficient number of hits since their last greatest-hits compilation in early 1966 (Big Hits: High Tide and Green Grass) made this a no-brainer, and its song lineup was as potent at the time as any compilation of hit singles by any artist. From the group's excursions into fey psychedelia (Paint It, Black, Ruby Tuesday, She's a Rainbow, Dandelion), space rock (2000 Light Years From Home), punk decadence (Mother's Little Helper), and back to straight-ahead rock & roll (Jumpin' Jack Flash), some of it with a topical edge (Street Fighting Man), it's all incredibly potent, though also redundant to the extent that Ruby Tuesday and Let's Spend the Night Together had previously appeared on two U.S. albums. The presence of Honky Tonk Women propelled it to gold record status upon release on both sides of the Atlantic, although the simultaneously released British version (long out of print, except as a bootleg CD) is different and more confusing, but also more diverse and rewarding musically than the American version. Both this album and Big Hits: High Tide and Green Grass have been supplanted by Hot Rocks and More Hot Rocks, but are still handy in their tight respective focuses.

    A2+ is the gateway drug for computer audio.

    - Steve Guttenberg, CNET


    Premium Powered Desktop Speaker System


    The award-winning Audioengine 2 powered desktop speakers just got better. With a built-in digital-to-analog converter (DAC), the Audioengine 2+ allows you to send high-quality digital audio direct from your computer's USB port.


    - Excellent sound with elegant simplicity and a new standard for computer audio

    - Versatile connections, including USB digital audio and subwoofer output

    - Designed for your desktop but also sounds great across the room


    Upgrade your Audio

    The Audioengine 2+ is the new standard for computer audio and these small, but high-performance speakers are the perfect upgrade for your computer. Everyone knows the difference between custom-built, small batch products and the disappointment of mass-produced and over-marketed products. The A2+ was designed and hand-built with the goal of exceeding expectations of both value and performance.


    Brotherly Love

    The Audioengine 2+ is about one-third the size of our flagship Audioengine 5+ powered speakers and an ideal size for your desktop or smaller room. We used the same custom tweeters as in the Audioengine 5+, matched them with compact Kevlar woofers, then added high-performance amplifiers with high-quality connectors. All this great engineering is wrapped in wood cabinets with a hand-polished finish to create a premium quality desktop multimedia speaker system that puts all those sad plastic computer speakers to shame!


    Smaller Speakers, Still Big Bass

    To say that the bass on the Audioengine 2+ is substantial for their size may be an understatement, but you should be the judge. The bass was teased from the A2+ with some clever acoustic and electrical design without using any digital signal processing or fake bass boost circuits. Wood remains a preferred speaker enclosure material for its stiffness at higher volume levels and the cabinet focuses just the right amount of low end from the tuned front port slots.


    Versatile and Efficient

    The A2+ was designed for your desktop but their superb soundstage and imaging also makes them the perfect choice for across the room. Well-suited for all your music, movies and games, the A2+ sounds great with or without a subwoofer. Using a similar analog design as the Audioengine 5+, the A2+ power amplifiers are built inside the left speaker providing a very efficient system. An auto-standby idle mode is also included to conserve power when you're not playing music.


    Easy Connections

    The A2+ features analog amplifiers that are built into the left speaker, while the right speaker is passive so setup is simple. Just plug the left speaker into AC power and connect the included speaker wire from left to right. We've included minijack, RCA, and USB inputs for easy connection to your computer or iDevice and other cables you may need are included. There is no software or plug-ins to install and A2+ works with any computer or music player. The A2+ also has a variable RCA output for connecting a subwoofer, upgraded connectors, improved accessory cables, and a redesigned power supply.


    Minding the Gap

    The Audioengine 2+ sets a new level of audio and aesthetic quality for Powered Multimedia Speakers and further closes the gap between computer speakers and home audio. Even if you're not an audio enthusiast, we guarantee you will still hear a difference!

Vocalist and songwriter, Courtney Love - claiming to be influenced by an unholy trinity of Big Black, Sonic Youth and Fleetwood Mac - had formed the band five years earlier, in Los Angeles in 1989 with Eric Erlandson.

    Worry Off My Mind

    Born in 1903 in Western Mississippi, Teddy Williams started on guitar when he was 31 years old. Nobody taught me, I just listened to the other people. He played local rent parties in the country, and had also played for a time in Chicago.


    GEORGE MITCHELL: Do-Boy Diamond and Teddy Williams came from the same town. It was Teddy who told me about Do-Boy. Teddy was the older man, and even though Do-Boy said he learned from someone else, it sounded like he might have learned from Teddy. Or maybe they both learned from the same source. Teddy was an older man, he didn't work. He'd sit around the courthouse square in Canton, hanging out. Canton was a bigger town than most of these places, so the black section was livelier. Lots of people hanging out in the street, music coming out of cafes.
