Description

Details:

The 28mm aluminum tweeter offers high power handling and a low fundamental resonance to reduce distortion. However, the main benefit to this new design is the excellent dispersion characteristics thanks to our Wide Dispersion Technology waveguides. The waveguides shape the acoustic output of the tweeter to match the woofer and provide a wider sweet-spot in your listening environment.
The inert, 18mm high density MDF cabinet utilizes proprietary bracing technology derived from the award-winning Reference Series, to reduce cabinet coloration and allow the new transducers to breathe freely within the listening environment. The slot shaped duct port on the rear of the speaker augments the bass output and has been carefully developed to reduce the effect of air turbulence with a clean, undistorted bass performance.
The base of the cabinet is pre-loaded with an inert mass material which adds damping and reduces cabinet coloration. The mass loading coupled with 8mm floor spikes help stability and provide a solid foundation for the drive units to operate without resonances from the cabinet interacting with the floor surface.
The result of this latest drive unit technology and enclosure design is a slim-line, powerful floor-standing loudspeaker for the discerning listener when refined audio quality coupled with elegant aesthetics are paramount.

  1. Andy Waite, Audiograde April 2022

    “Acoustic Energy has once again delivered on plugging a gap in its range with the AE320 for anyone looking for a mid price three-way speaker that delivers on quality while being easy to drive from even moderately powered amps.

    True, they eschew premium materials such as carbon fiber drive units but their looks will still complement any living room without dominating it. More importantly though, these speakers serve up cohesive and immensely rich sounds across the frequency range with a mature weight and balance, making them outstanding value for the money.” Andy Waite, Audiograde April 2022 Awarded a “best value” badge by Audiograde.

    “SENSIBLY-PRICED AT $1990 A PAIR, BEAUTIFULLY FINISHED AND SLENDER ENOUGH TO FIT INTO MANY A ROOM, THESE BRITISH-MADE FLOORSTANDERS SOUND FINE, TOO” Chris Kelly, Hi Fi Critic March 2022

  3. WOJCIECH PACUŁA, High Fidelity Magazine Poland, Feb 2021

    THE TESTED ACOUSTIC ENERGY AE320 speakers are perfectly designed and well-made. Their sound is actually warm, but also open. The most important thing in them is the midrange, and they can also perfectly reflect the power of orchestral arrangements. These are excellent speakers – earning my RED Fingerprint (Best Buy) tag, is a must (and my pleasure) in this case. WOJCIECH PACUŁA, High Fidelity Magazine Poland, Feb 2021

  4. Noel Greenberg, Hi Fi World, Feb 2022

    “… clean and clear without any sharpness from the tweeter – something I greatly appreciate, something the company constantly achieve.” At $1990 a pair, I’d rate the AE320s as a great package, one well worth hearing. Verdict: Fast, clear and very strong lows. A punchy exciting sound.” Noel Greenberg, Hi Fi World, Feb 2022

  5. Nick Tate, Hi Fi Choice Magazine UK, Jan 2022

    “Acoustic Energy’s new AE320 does an awful lot at the $1990 a pair. It gives an incredibly big and strong sound for the money, yet isn’t crude and doesn’t misbehave in any other respect. It’s a very good all-rounder, with nothing whatsoever about it that lets the side down at all – compared with rivals. Best of all, it makes music fun; pair it with a decent integrated amp and a good DAC and you’ve got a very grown-up sound for not too much money.” Nick Tate, Hi Fi Choice Magazine UK, Jan 2022

  6. Von Andreas Günther, Audio Magazine, Germany March 2022

    “For to our eye and ear, this is the archetype of a modern floor standing speaker.
    Nothing, but nothing at all, keeps us from recommending a purchase.

    Verdict: A great speaker that caters to all preferences. It can do classical music, but not up to the last detail of fine dynamics. Furious when we put on rock. Then the room shakes – from an amazingly slim design. The ambition, the drive and, last but not least, the price. An honest-to-goodness buy recommendation from our side.” Audio Magazine, Germany by Von Andreas Günther, March 2022
