If you’re looking for some gimmicky plastic speakers with an iPod dock and an LCD, skip this one.

If you want some of the finest sound out of your music player for the money, check out the Audio Engine A5N bookshelf speakers.

Born of studio monitor heritage, the A5N’s represent the “premium” edition of the A5, an already outrageous speaker set. (The extra $100 goes towards the hot carbonized solid bamboo enclosure.)

Audio Engine A5N Bamboo Bookshelf Speaker

The A5′s sport excellent tweeters and woofers that are perfectly balanced so your music sounds rich and full, not boomy or tinny. The kevlar woofer and silk dome tweeters don’t just look great on the grill-less A5′s, they’re premium parts.

The A5′s also feature a USB connector on top so you can plug your choice of iPod dock in. For those interested in beaming their tunes, the A5 also has a built-in power outlet that just happens to be perfect for accommodating an AirPort Express.

All in all, a great value at $349 in black or white, and $449 in the bamboo. Shipping’s free, too.

    I run my PC with AudioEngine A5 (bought here in the UK) and have to say they sound great!

    Plenty of bass and lots of nice high end clarity. Nearly audiophile! :)
