“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 43 – A set of Audioengine 5N Bamboo speakers!

This contest is closed. Congrats to faithful Macenstein reader Steve.

On the Forty-Third Day After Christmas, Macenstein gave to you (or, more accurately, gave you a chance to win…) A set of A5N Powered Bookshelf Speakers (in BAMBOO!) !


AAARRGGHHH! If only I could enter my own contest! Damnit. Well, one of you lucky bastards is about to be taken on an audio trip to AWESOMETOWN!

I actually have a pair of the white Audio Engine A5’s, and I use them daily in my demolition job to knock down houses. These things are scary loud, and amazingly distortion free, even at ear-bleeding levels. And you’re actually getting the cooler, more expensive version of the A5’s, the Eco-friendly, $450 Bamboo model. God, I hate you.

Audioengine 5N (A5N) – All of the simple but useful features and same signature sound of the award-winning A5 wrapped in rock solid and beautifully hand-finished bamboo.

Bamboo is an excellent alternative to hardwoods and the dark bamboo used for the Audioengine A5N cabinets is not a stain, but achieved through a specialized heating process. As the wood is pressure heated, the sugar compounds inside the bamboo are “carbonized” which in turn darkens the bamboo to a rich caramel color. Awesome sound, great looks, eco-friendly, and panda-safe.

Above: That AC outlet is PERFECT for hooking up an AirPort express and blasting tunes from your home computer (via the remote app on your iPhone/iPod touch, of course!)

A5N Eco-friendly features:

Made from renewable and sustainable solid bamboo – no veneers
No stains or paint used – naturally “carbonized” finish sealed with hand-rubbed water-based satin polyurethane
Other green facts and features:

Audioengine products are now 100% lead-free and meet the EU’s RoHS initiative
All speaker cabinet materials use environmentally-friendly binders and resins
Formaldehyde-free adhesives are used in our cabinet assembly
All Audioengine products meet ENERGY STAR requirements in standby
Limited use of plastics in our products
Easy-to-recycle packaging

To enter: Since obviously you will annoy your neighbors (and THEIR neighbors) with the A5’s, we’re wondering, What’s the ONE THING you find most annoying/rude about other people? Winners will be picked randomly 7 days later and notified (kind of like in The Ring, only with less killing… we hope). Open to US readers only. Good luck, and thanks for reading Macenstein! (Oh, and be sure to enter ALL our “12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaways!)
Please note: Comments may take a while to show up, please do not double-post. Thanks!

    It’s EASILY people chewing with their mouth open. So gross. I hate the sound, the lazy look that people have when they don’t close their mouth, and the food that flies out when they chew. It’s revolting.

    AND btw… audioengine speakers are AWESOME. I hope I win… Maybe if I was darker skinned I would have a higher chance of being randomly selected… Sorta like at the airport.

    I hate when people walk by you, fart, and then walk away leaving you confused, and grossed out. Plus, anyone who walks by afterword automatically thinks it was you. It’s a never ending cycle.
