    This is the prior generation of the R1280DB right?

    Anyone here purchased the R1280DB? I've found the bass is not as pronounced as I was hoping for (especially at lower volumes). It's like you need to crank up the volume to really let these speakers come to life. However, as TV speakers when casually watching - you're not really looking to turn these up.

    Any tips on how to get the best use out of these speakers?

      try using an equaliser for the extra bass?

      •  

        At least on my Samsung TV - you can't use the TV's EQ when you're using Optical output.

        I've already turned up the bass on the speaker dials.

          Does the TV have audio out or headphone socket? You could experiment by trying the AUX input on the speakers instead of the Optical input to see if that has a different affect.

          •  

            @Petsa: I did try that - I have found optical out provides audible improvements in sound quality - so am sticking with optical.

            I'm wondering whether I should pass the optical out through a mini-amp to get a bit of a boost on the low ends? But this defeats the purpose of a 2-speaker system

              @chillipaste: or you can buy a sub-woofer which there is an output from the speakers to increase bass.

                @he88388: You will need subwoofer output which is missing from the R1280DB.
                Only way around it is to use analog connection and use a 3.5mm splitter cable.

                  @margejsimpson: thanks - a good thing to keep in mind. an option to expand out with a dedicated subwoofer.

                  •  

                    @chillipaste: and I think it provides a reasonable work around, but as went through the same/similar scenario I found that direct optical link from amp to sub' made the bass at least 30-50 times better. This also included the option of adjusting crossover from the amp AND at the subwoofer. Loudness ctrl on sub' also super effective as adds extra ctrl over bass output/sound. I'm now able to listen to music at a lower level (when desired) AND have response from the sub'. B4 connecting via the optical line I used to have to crank it up quite a lot to get the bass to respond.

                    I don't always want to listen to so loudly… other times though sure is nice to turn up a bit… harmonies and overall sound so much better IF a little on the loud side IMO. (have active sub woofer). Pretty much only have to adjust the equaliser settings when listening. I consider the adjustments on the sub' to be sort of 'coarse' adjustments. In a perfect world all songs would require near exactly the same EQ setting for many people, but I quite like being able to adjust to just the right levels per song/music I'm enjoying at any given time.

                    •  

                      @Chris Farley: So Chris - are you saying connecting the audio source into an amp first (via optical) and then channeling it through to my active bookshelf speakers? and connecting a separate sub into the amp. Basically, bookshelf speakers and separate sub connects directly into a single amp?

                      I think your experience is probably the route I will go. The whole point of purchasing these edifier e1280dbs was to avoid the amp and sub requirement as well as save cost and floorspace (oh well)

                      If I were to go down a dedicated amp - any suggestions on something small and low cost ~$100? No point having spend ~$100 on these speakers, to then have to spend another further $100-200 each for a sub and dedicated amp. I might as well have gone down the passive speaker/sub and amp route to begin with. A learning anyway.

                      •  

                        @chillipaste: Dude… seriously, consider a sub woofer, though totally accept your conditions and scenario may not allow for. In my case everything is connected to my amp directly.
                        The only… exception is that as the S/W is 'active' it is plugged directly into power socket. I must say these posted Edifier speakers sure look good (certainly in this category) and can understand your temptation.

                        Maybe consider doing some research on DACs if you haven't already. I hear (no pun intended) they can be VERY pleasing. Many have an optical output as well if I remember correctly. I don't know enough about DACs but since improving my existing system I discontinued my DAC related research.
                        You're sure to save $$$ if you can avoid purchasing a dedicated/conventional amp.
                        I should add I'm only somewhat of a 'wannabe' audiophile and have been since my teens but it's fair to add that I'm quite adept and accustomed to what 'good sound' is.
                        You could always go into a dedicated stereo shop that has both types of systems and discuss your requirements to help refine what you want and what you need. Be careful though… it is super easy to end up buying on the spot only to find you could have gotten a much better deal on the same equipment elsewhere. Goes without saying really in this day and age. Hope that helps. Take pictures/specs of your existing equipment. Every chance you can 'marry up' already decent equipment you have.

      This may sound like common sense, but make sure both speakers are outputting bass, you may have received a faulty product.

      With the analog RCA inputs on the Edifier make sure you try both, one is more sensitive than the other.

      •  

        How do I test the speakers are sufficiently outputting bass? I can hear the bass, but its at a level I was hoping for. It might just be my unfair expectations for these speakers.

        I'll also try the other RCA inputs.

          It might just be my unfair expectations for these speakers.

          Maybe. They are $100 after all, if you were expecting more ‘cinema’ like sound a soundbar is probably a better bet.

          Regarding testing the speakers it’s difficult to explain since so many things can affect the sound (speaker placement, audio file, source etc).
          A fault would be really rare case, maybe just make sure all your connections are solid and make sure to check the speaker wires to the passive speaker (the ones with which are just speaker wire inputs).

          When testing the analog RCA inputs (I imagine you are connecting the 3.5mm headphone out on the TV to the red/white RCA on Edifier), make sure the TV output volume is around 50-60%. Too high like 80-100% will add distortion, and too low (20-30%) will again require you to turn up the Edifier’s too loud and add distortion.
          Again you may find like others on ozb, that the optical sounds best.

    No bluetooth on this model.

  •  

    Any idea how these would compare to entry level soundbar?

  •  

    Anyone use these for music? Looking for some new speakers to attach to an Airport Express for Airplay 2 usage.

  •  

    Since the R1280DB has been the exact same price on the same website. This R1280T should be cheaper in price.

  •  

    Good speakers but the remote sucks, it's really fussy about aiming and makes me sad

    •  

      The receiver for remote is on the speaker with the controls, top left corner (if you remove the cover you can see the 2cm black circle).

    •  

      Infrared remotes tend to be that way, especially ones that take small batteries.
      Just point it at the speaker which has the receiver circle like the comment above mentioned, and it should work acceptably.

  •  

    Just fyi, this is standard pricing on the non-bluetooth version. I think Edifier don't even make these anymore, the one's you see online are just retailers trying to flog them off.

    These have Bluetooth & dual mic inputs + 2x RCA & only $105.. Only 4 pairs available though as of this reply!
