Airmotiv 3b Speakers: Conclusion
The Emotiva Airmotiv 3b is a winner for solid desktop sound
Yes, Emotiva has done it again. These aren’t your average computer speakers. The Airmotiv 3bs are high-grade desktop speakers with serious kick. For such a small package, they deliver remarkably good sound. They certainly are not the perfect desktop speaker and they don’t come with luxurious extras. There is no remote or subwoofer output, for example. But at the $200 price point (shipping included), those are inconsequential omissions.
If you’re tight on space and budget and have been waiting for a reason to give your computer-based gaming, movie watching, or music listening a serious upgrade, then look no further than the Airmotiv 3b.
Do good things come in small packages? The Airmotiv 3b is certainly proof of this. Highly recommended!

Curious as to what a comparison would be between these and say Audioengine's a2+ desktop speakers. Personally, I have zero interest in blue tooth connectivity.
Unfortunately they do suffer some of the same problems as their bluetooth counterpart
1. No way to add a subwoofer
2. Bass response, while great for a speaker it's size, will not get the extreme lows
Overall they offer an excellent $ for Sound Quality Ratio
