Comparison of the Companies Making Peachtree M25 and Audioengine A5+

A company’s reputation is worth considering because if they make bogus products, chances are their other stuff will also be substandard. A good way to check a company is to spend some time looking into them before you make an expensive decision.

Peachtree Audio Company was founded by Leon Shaw more than 20 years ago and they’ve been making quality products at an affordable price ever since. Their products have helped them carve out a niche for themselves in the market and they’re here to stay.

Audioengine Company is one of the newest startups on the market. Though they’ve only been around since 2005, they’ve been able to succeed in delivering great sound quality products at a very affordable price. The specs of Peachtree M25 and Audioengine A5+ are vastly different and can be determined by their price difference alone. While the prices of Peachtree and Audioengine reflect the priority they give to quality, it is obvious that Audioengine’s priority is on cost while still trying to avoid compromising on quality.

Peachtree M25 and Audioengine A5+: Side-by-Side Comparison

The two powered speakers are very similar, they have a lot of the same features but there are some small differences that make them ideal in different situations.

Physical Sizes

The cabinet of the Peachtree M25 is smaller in size compared to that of the Audioengine A5+. The Peachtree M25 is 8.75” tall with a width of 5.5” and depth at 9.25” while the Audioengine A5+ stands 10.875” tall with a width of 7.1888” and depth at 9.7.

Unlike the Audioengine A5+, the Peachtree M25 doesn’t have a large cabinet and is lighter, but still it has an excellent audio quality and even comes with built-in Bluetooth. The M25 from Peachtree uses an extra-large tweeter of one inch, more than that of the A5+ from Audioengine.

This makes them able to produce a better sound with their twice as powerful magnet and larger voice coil. Unlike the soft dome tweeters that both brands use, theirs are made out of different materials – silk for Audioengine and aluminum. Peachtree M25 picked fabric for its tweeter material, while Audioengine A5+ went with silk.

The Audioengine A5+ takes precedence for the woofer size given its 5” wide woofer, it has a 4” in-built speaker, which is not as wide. Peachtree M25 has a Kevlar type woofer while the A5+’s is made of fiberglass.

The Audioengine A5+ is capable of getting deeper frequencies perfect for a larger space. It’s large enough to fill a room with sound and has a nice, deep bass response. On the other end of the spectrum, the Peachtree M25 is much smaller and would be best suited in a tight workspace or office.

Quality, Design and Technology Comparison

Both types of speakers look really nice, but it’s the finer details that separate them. Details like where the input jack is on the speaker are surprisingly important, so this should be a consideration in your research.

We offer multiple colors and styles of Peachtree M25 speakers that fit right into your home environment. Whether you want a desk or table speaker, they come in either piano black or elegant bamboo.

When you consider the quality of these keyboards, a triple price tag seems very reasonable. For that reason, it’s a good choice. The Peachtree M25 tweeters and woofers are great-sounding speakers because of the custom-designed woofers, which are made with a specialized fabric called Fiberglass. These speakers are lightweight which helps with the sound quality because it gives them the range to hit middle and low frequencies.

The bass on the Peachtree M25 speakers is great because of their rear-ported design which gives a nice punchy sound. This is enjoyable for listeners.

Most of the time, you can’t have both a good sound and connectivity in the same speaker – either one will suffer. Part of Peachtree M25’s mission is to resolve the connectivity issue some powered speakers have. Plug it in, connect it to your input source and you’ll be taking advantage of the best inputs for your needs. It’s as easy as pie.

Unlike most powered speakers which only offer analog inputs, Peachtree M25 offers a variety of options such as Bluetooth, USB digital input, optical digital input and stereo input for users who (either want to stream or use their CD collection), use vinyl or play from other digital inputs.

In addition to this, the M25 table has front mounted dials for fine control of volume or input source. You’ll also be able to find different sources easily because they’re color coded for easy distinction.

The A5+ is an excellent speaker. It’s well built and allows for high-quality sound. Audioengine A5+ has more color options to choose from. They offer three colors; Black, Pearl White and Bamboo Natural. The flexibility of them allows you to decide if you want wire connection or an analog one. So whichever way you want to go, it’s easy for them to plug and play.

The A5+ is very easy to set up and use. If you’re not a tech-savvy person, you could do it for yourself too.

The large size and design of the Audioengine A5+ make it appropriate for use either in a bookshelf or large room. It produces great sound and even has satisfying bass levels, despite the space. Audioengine’s A5+ speakers can fill a large room with sound, whereas the Peachtree M25 is best for smaller spaces.

below is a breakdown of the features that each of them have.

Exciting Features

They both use high-level tech, which unites them as quality speakers with connectivity to analog sources like vinyl.

Vinyl is finally gaining some popularity again because of its quality sound and Audioengine A5+ and Peachtree M25 both offer ways of playing vinyl. Some people might assume you need lots of cables and phono preamps to connect a vinyl player to speakers. But both the Audioengine A5+ and Peachtree M25 have phono-in built directly into them – so it is really easy to turn your records into music!

The M25 from Peachtree Audio is simply better because it has a flick switch for changing between playing through the speakers and through your aux input. It’s more simple and well designed than the Audioengine A5+.

Peachtree M25 is built for music lovers looking to produce multi-room wireless sound. If you want to listen to your music without disturbing other people and without having to sit close to a pair of overly short headphones, try streaming over Bluetooth instead. The A5+ has no wireless connectivity option.

You want to be able to control and adjust some things from a distance and the best way to do that is with a remote. On this one too, the Audioengine A5+ lost out to the Peachtree M25 for it comes with a remote control unlike its counterpart. With the remote, you can change the volume, skip tracks, adjust the bass and treble and more. There are also shortcut buttons to engineer your soundscape quickly and easily. Best of all, there’s also a mute button for moments when silence is golden.

As you might imagine, both the Audioengine A5+ and Peachtree M25 speakers have USB charging ports which is convenient for when you don’t want to use your phone/iPad battery power.

The Peachtree M25 has a subwoofer output in case you want more bass (which is good considering it’s smaller than the Audioengine A5+ which can fill a large room with sound). I only wish I had a subwoofer. The AI has spoiled me so much!

Final Verdict

In the following two power speakers, you will find the Audioengine A5+ to be better suited for bigger rooms because of its large cabinets. The sound and bass that it produces are larger than those associated with the Bose Solo 5 TV Sound System. Both the M25 are best used in a fairly large room so they’ll work well as desktop speakers, but they also work with turntables. So these would be great for anyone who enjoys playing vinyl.

The Peachtree M25 is smaller than the Audioengine A5+, but it has a bunch of features that makes it pretty irresistible. It connects to Bluetooth, connects wirelessly from a remote, has top notch quality. But these extra features may cost you a little more for the Peachtree M25.

Peachtree M25 and Audioengine A5+ are some of the best deals you’ll find anywhere. If you’re looking for top quality audio, look no further.
