The P4 Passive Bamboo Bookshelf Speakers have been designed by Audioengine with a specific niche audience that values aesthetics just as much as audio performance. Unlike your traditional hulk of a shapeless black speaker that sticks out like a sore thumb in your living room décor, the P4 is made from bamboo and made not just to sound good, but also to look good. The compact size and solid bamboo color makes it a neat addition to your bookshelf. It’s ideal for use with a music system that has a separate amplifier or surround receivers. By itself, the P4 offers high quality audio, but without the amplifier. It’s small, looks great in your living room or den, and is affordable too.
