Got these a while ago but the camel camel camel notification remained. Good news is that this is the lowest price of all time. Great speakers. Enjoy.
How this compare to the R1580db posted last week for $70 dollarydoos.
DAC, Bluetooth, more power, probably better drivers.
They are more than twice the price, what are you asking exactly?
Yeah basically that. Thanks
I've received the ones from last week they have Bluetooth and can connect two devices at once
I can see this one comes with a remote where the other didn't.
Insane price. Sorry my notification just from Amazon then I guess.
This was a price error. My bad, so your price is still the lowest
This was a price error from Catch. All orders were cancelled.
Wow. They didn't honour the orders? Baad.
Welcome to Catch. Standard practice I'm afraid. Still salty my manual coffee plunger got cancelled
The orders in that one got cancelled :(
Is this AC input? Any suggestion for a good stand-alone for outdoor use without a power point.
Standalone outdoor use without power? Powered by an amp you mean….or magic?
Do you mean wired speakers that are waterproof? Would run cables to an amplifier inside somewhere.
Any recommendations for a good subwoofer to connect to this?
Sub recommendation is hard because it depends so much on the room you need it for, especially if you're looking to buy higher end. I'm also curious about an inexpensive sub to give these a bit more oomph though.
I did. Jbl wireless $99 sub plus amp from AliExpress for $30. Awesome universal active sub for $129
Awesome, you have any link to it?

I bought this one will be adding a set of passive bookshelf speakers to the setup
Lots of used near new Yamaha's about from people splitting their 5.1 systems up. Never had an issue and I've owned 3
Why are they doing that?
@havok44: If they're anything like my mate, didn't have room in their lounge. Other commonly cited reason is disapproval of SO.
Anyone know if these can airplay?
They cannot. Bluetooth wirelessly.
I was hoping for wired bluetooth /s
Anyone using these for a home theatre?
I was initially looking at a 3.1 soundbar but may settle for these if the sound quality is good.
Interested about this too
IMHO a good home theatre set-up needs a sub-woofer.
I have an ancient pair of Logitech Z series PC speakers which still sound amazing. Has much changed in the last 10 years to warrant upgrading them?
My z560 control pod well and truly died recently, so I got the edifier s350db 2.1 as part of the klarna/Kogan deal for $300 - amazing quality and modern inputs. Really like them and recommend for home PC setup (what I use it for). I also have the edifier r1280db, which are good but the s350db is significantly better.
Me too, a set of Logitech z623. Would love to buy these and use the Logitech sub, but looks like it's not possible. I also have the non-sub version of these Edifiers on another TV and they are awesome, even without a sub.
for movies and games, I'm still using my z-5500's and they are still amazing. Have to often time down the subwoofer, cause it's just a beast. (I'm assuming you using it in a smaller space, this is being used in a 3x4m bedroom btw, for a larger loungeroom area, these won't sound as good)
I don't know what I'll do when they die.
For listening to music you can do much much better for very little money than what Logitech produces.
Is this pricr better than Amazon day? Trying to find the expired node to compare…
How do these compare to the 1280BT?
I'm also curious about this.
Anyone know the difference between these and the R1700BT?
The R1850DB comes with optical & coax inputs and a subwoofer output, and a little bit more power,
R1850DB total watts 70W, R1700BT 66W.
1850db has more power and added connection (opt and coax). other than that they looked similar
How do these compare to a pair of shoes?
Wearing them on your feet? Shoes wins everyday.
Best I can get from shoes is a squeaky sound but even that goes away after wearing in.
On the other hand, I found these speakers start to hurt my feet 5K into a hike.
So up to you.
Aren’t these the old model?? The R1855DB were $149 delivered last week
Yea seems like that was a better deal. thanks @balljuice
i got those myself to use as PC speakers. very happy with them.
so happy in fact I am also expecting delivery of a pair of Edifier P17 Passive speakers for my main amplifier that i've been running in stereo but is capable of 5.1
I have a pair of Edifier R1700BT (Bluetooth 4.0) in my kitchen and a pair of R1700BTs (Bluetooth 5.0) in my lounge.
The Bluetooth range is massively different, if I accidentally leave the kitchen with my phone it the speakers will start to lose reception
and drop out, screech etc, but the R1700BTs Bluetooth 5.0 lounge speakers, well I can walk around my house and they won't drop out,
it's that bigger difference!! I will never buy Bluetooth 4.0 again, unfortunately the Edifier R1850DB are Bluetooth 4.0.
For Bluetooth 5.0 to work you need a phone/tablet etc with Bluetooth 5.0, most flagship phones from 2018 have Bluetooth 5.0.
If you have an older Bluetooth 4.0/4.1 or 4.2 phone then the Bluetooth 5.0 speakers will connect to your phone
with the same older Bluetooth version, as in backward compatible.
hmm interesting…. r1855 is like 25 bucks more for more updated internals?
I was tossing between this and Bose Companion® 2 Series III.
Which one is better for a laptop setup?
Check out the the r2750
They're huge lol
Will I experience the delay in sound compare to image while watching movie?
use Optical Cable connection to reduce sound delay.
maybe if use blueteeth. Should be none if you use regular 3.5mm
Where is discount for 2750db? And why when are not able to get 2850db in au?🤪
The upgraded R1855DB's are $149 delivered
No longer available
I still have some Logitech z623’s that are nearing on 8 years old.
I don’t feel like I need to upgrade my speakers but in true ozbargain fashion this interests me.
Are the ones here going to be that much of an upgrade for me?
They’re too good imo. Mine died and haven’t bothered replacing them until a something comparable. I got my Zs for $99 delivered from Logitech back in the day. It’s just feels weird paying so much for tech that long after.
1855DB for $149? https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B08GJCLKW3/ref=ppx_yo_d...
Yep upgraded model at a better price. This is what this deal should be..
Coming up as $195
yeah, people keep saying 149 for them, but i think its an old deal… think i'll wait rather than buying the old model for more
It was today, just expired not long after posting
@vodamerc: I can confirm it was 149 earlier today
Yea I bought the 1855DB for $153 on Amazon very recently.
Pretty much the updated version of this with bluetooth 5.0 and slightly better remote from what i've heard.
