Edifier S880DB 2.0 Hi-Res Certified Powered Speakers $249 C&C or + $15 Shipping @ PC Case Gear

90

Slightly ($14) more expensive delivered than previous best deal.
Currently discounted to $286 @ Edifier AU.

Notes: Keep in mind the bass driver is on the smaller side (3.7-inch) so speaker may have less low-end bass than you may expect.
Speaker has USB input for direct digital connection to PC. USB, optical and coaxial inputs supports sample signal rate of up to 192kHz. Has tone-controls. Remote is round.
Due to the driver size & power ratings, I expect these are intended to be used in a nearfield application.

    Some of the prettiest budget speakers around.

  •  

    55hz ey? I looked for how many db down that was a week ago, didnt find it. Anyone know?

    •  

      +/- 1dB 55 Hz –- 20 kHz, if you can swallow that BS. That's probably for the DAC/amp.

      •  

        That would be pretty impressive. Genelec 8010A's at 4x the price claim 67 Hz - 25 kHz (-6dB), I was impressed with these little units, such a solid build.

          Many things need to be taken into account, like placement / location (distance from wall / anechoic chamber), distance from which measurement was taken etc.

          Edifier being originally a ‘media’ speaker company could have just put them on a desk against a wall in the office and took measurements from super close.

          While Genelec probably took measurements with the speaker in the centre of an anechoic chamber. (Genelec would most likely disclose this info).

        Possibly measured from <0.5m / 1m away.

          You believe a pair of $249 active speakers can crossover its drivers within 1dB of the mode? I'll eat a printout of the frequency response graph if it is true. +/- 1dB does not mean the graph deviates from the mode 1dB at the extremes. It means the graph deviates <= 1dB from the mode over its entire specified frequency range.

            @alvian:

            +/- 1dB does not mean the graph deviates from the mode 1dB at the extremes.

            Oops that’s what I thought.

            A bit over my head then, but on a second look Edifier claimed 55Hz - 40KHz.
            Sounds like you are right and that the person who wrote the review just added their own +/- dB.

    I have had these speakers for a couple of years. No problems so far. The sound is crisp and clear, definitely work best with a digital input (xbox) or from a Bluetooth 5.0 device (Need to use a volume booster app on lower spec Bluetooth in my experience) I have them plugged into a TV in one if my living areas.( I use the s3000pro in the TV room which are awesome but BIG). What I like about the s880db is the small form factor, solid build, they are white which is camo in a white room (I have a white TV and white Xbox).

    What I don't really like is the puck shaped remote and that the different modes to my ears sound pretty similar.

    I would definitely buy these again if the need arose, very happy with them.
