Audioengine HD3 desktop speaker system review: Good things do come in small packages – Scott Wilkinson

When my wife needed new desktop speakers for her computer workstation, I did some research and quickly learned that Audioengine is one of the most well-respected names in that market. Even better, the Audioengine HD3 is small enough to fit in the tight spaces on either side of her computer. But would it sound good enough for her discerning ears? Happily, the answer is clearly “yes.”


The Audioengine HD3 is a self-powered system consisting of a pair of small speakers, each measuring a mere 7 x 4.25 x 5.5 inches (HxWxD), which is small enough to fit where they need to go on my wife’s desk. Despite their diminutive size, they are fairly hefty—the left (powered) speaker weighs in at 4.0 pounds, while the right (passive) speaker is just a bit lighter at 3.4 pounds. The build quality is exceptional, with 0.7-inch-thick, high-resin MDF cabinets that include extensive internal bracing, heavy sound-damping material, and real walnut veneer. (They’re also available in satin black and high-gloss white.)
