    Should have waited, got the eBay deal last week. Delivered Today. Sound great with Bluetooth and digital sources. Vinyl I'm using without a preamp. Best feature is ability to connect multiple sources/inputs plus Bluetooth and ability to switch between them.

      How are you using vinyl without a preamp?

        No RIAA equalisation? Egads, man!

      •  

        I used adaptors and a cable to convert to male 3.5mm plug. it originally sounded fine I connected it to a Bose soundlink mini. Now, not so much with the Edifers. Bluetooth is great and digital sources are great though. Prolly should get a preamp lol

    Would these work as dedicated karaoke speakers with a mixer with no compression? Or will they blow?

    My home theatre system is using Logitech 5.1 z906 and am worried about blowing the speakers up with drunks screaming songs

    •  

      Out of curiosity what karaoke system do you use? I really really want to get in to it but don't know where to start.

      • +1 vote

        All you really need is a mixer (behringer or mackie $150-200) + microphones (shure or behringer) + laptop (YouTube)

        Speakers are the only unknown that I haven’t figured out

        •  

          What’s the mixer for? And the laptop should already have speakers

          •  

            @BongoOB: Mixer is to allow multiple microphone connections + no latency + FX

            Laptop speakers won't generally output great sound and a lot of basic home theatre setups will blow if some drunk starts screaming high frequencies into the microphone.
            A more expensive mixer with compression should stop the speakers from blowing however (will need to confirm).

            Rule with karaoke is generally the louder it is the better from my experience!

    Running an old logitech z5500 in 2.1 on my PC. Would I be wasting my money on these for any other gaming other than FPS (I use a headset for fps).

    Glad that I've waited. Bloody good price.

    Is it bluetooth 5 or 4.1? Can you connect two bluetooth devices at the same time?Thanks.

    I have an old school hifi system that's like 300 watts (with the CD changer and all). I want to downsize. Would something like this produce similar sound to that system (it says 21 watt rms but i'm sure that not comparable to 300 watt)?

    Bought one :) Lots of good reviews

  •  

    Wonder if the S2000Pro is worth it…

    Or really, which of these speakers are the sweet spot.

  •  

    Does anyone have experience with these and gaming?
    I am tossing up between this and Logitech z623. Will probably pull the trigger on either one tomorrow depending on prices for the JB Hi-Fi Black Friday sale (not sure if the 30% off Logitech gaming gear stacks with the current price of the z623)

  •  

    I just got some delivered from a different deal, this is a cracker. Just a question, I currently have them hooked up to my PC using the included RCA>3.5mm cable, it seems fine. Is there an advantage using the supplied toslink optical cable and getting some kind of adapter so it can be hooked up to my PC?

    •  

      This thread may interest you.

      •  

        Yeah I did see that, I wasn't sure if the product linked on eBay would be suitable and with postage times on that product running up until 24 Jan, I thought there may simply be a cheap adapter, that could be purchased locally. I'm not sure if it will be of much benefit as that guy complained of some kind of buzzing noise, I have not had that happen.

    •  

      Using the optical cable will mean you'll be using the DAC inside the speaker rather than the DAC in your PC which is what is happening when you're using the 3.5mm. Depending on the quality of the soundcard you have the audio quality may be better or worse than the one in the Edifier's.

      Normally I'd say give both a try and see which you prefer. When you say you need an adaptor to use the toslink it probably means you don't have an optical output on your soundcard/motherboard.

      •  

        I don't have a standalone soundcard, so I run my xlr mic for podcasting and my headphones through an external scarlett audio interface, which is then attached to the PC via usb, but it has no toslink/optical out. Just the xlr, and two 3.5mm.

        Yes, the mobo doesn't have an optical out. So I was questioning as mentioned if an adapter would work.

        I think I'll just reach out to Edifier for help.

        As I don't have an interference or buzzing as some have reported it's potentially not needed anyway.

    Are these stereo or mono?

  •  

    Dumb question, don't know much about speaker, is it just plug in to the computer and then play? Thanks!

  •  

    I still want to play CDs. Would a discma or other cheap solution hooked up in some way work?

  •  

    Really keen on these speakers, however does anyone know how loud they get compared to the Logitech Z623's? I often have parties at my place which end up in the garage with the Z623's pumping, however I'm sick of how hideous they are. I'm not an audiophile so the sound quality isn't as important, it's more about the aesthetics and wireless connectivity that I'm considering these speakers, however if the volume isn't huge I'd probably have to look at alternative bookshelf speakers.

    •  

      Might be a bit late given sale is over, however I would say volume is there but bass might be lacking, depending on what you are looking for. Don't get me wrong, the bass is present and is pretty tight and punchy, but is not as low as you're going to get in a system with a dedicated sub like the Z623. Sound quality/clarity wise, these blow the Z623 out of the water.

  •  

    Which is better this or the R1850DB?

  •  

    This or Logitech Z623? Just looking to attach to.a projector in a very small bedroom.

      I know this might be a bit late since price has gone back up, but for a TV setup I would go with these given better sound quality and the fact they can be controlled with a remote. Only reason I can see to go for the Z623 over these is if you want deeper bass.

      I just swapped over from Z623 on my PC to a set of the R1280DB connected through a dedicated sound card (Essence STX). These sound better but lack bass compared to the Z623. That's not necessarily a bad thing as the bass on the Z623 can be overpowering.

      I also have a couple of sets of Microlab speakers (Solo 5C and 9C). Microlab used to be the 'go to' speakers for quality sound on a budget, but they are no longer readily available in Australia and Edifier appears to have filled that void. Sound quality wise, to my ears the Edifier R1280DB appear pretty comparable to the Microlab Solo 5C, but the Microlab Solo 5C have better bass (which is expected given they have a 5.25" woofer compared to 4" on the R1280DB).

        Having had Logitech’s in the home back when I was younger (older 2.1 model equivalent to Z623), I would have to go one step further and say Logitech’s has big boomy bass & very little of anything else.

        One-time back then, I realised the Bass was just too much & overwhelming everything else, so I turned the bass all-the-way down to minimum & expected better mids & highs.
        What I ended up with (with bass at minimum) was just a very bad sounding speaker system.

        With Logitech’s the loud-bass masks the rest of the frequencies, you need to have it turned up & you need to be happy with super-bass heavy sound, otherwise it’s just a bad sounding speaker system.

    My speakers got delivered yesterday and I am really impressed with the quality of sound. Highly recommend :)
