Audioengine 5 in Bamboo

The Audioengine team is also looking at alternative cabinet materials. On display was a prototype A5 housed in lovely, sustainable bamboo. While the electronics remain the same, the bamboo models will incorporate added dampening.

"We were afraid the sound wouldn't match up to what we'd achieved with the original A5, but, when we were all finished, we were surprised to find that it sounded very similar."

We can expect this model to be released in the coming months, with a price somewhere around $599.
