Reviews around value (4.70 of 5)

  • Our record player has no amplifier so the amplifier in these speakers were more than sufficient to play the music as loud as we could stand
  • It is a good value of money, don't get me wrong, but with the budget the value isn't unlimited.
  • Edifier speakers are a good value for the price you pay
  • These speakers are the perfect balance between performance and cost, great sound and a great value!
  • I would not recommend at all as they are in the same class as all the other junk low-cost, low-quality products from china

Reviews around review (4.49 of 5)

  • I thought, how good could the sound quality really be in them despite the great reviews
  • I'd like to start off by stating what I was expecting from these - because most reviews have complaints without stating their expectations
  • All the positive reviews are correct...... a great speaker
  • I just want to share my experience as I feel as though reliable reviews are hard to come by lately.
  • I don't endorse with a rave review nor endorse competitors with comparative remarks or a harsh review; I simply report my experience

Reviews around setup (4.45 of 5)

  • With that said, I used these with the PSW10 subwoofers, in search of a cheap but quality setup, and while it sounded low in a crowded room, it sounded great in a smaller gathering.
  • Easy setup and sound quality is great, perfect for my record player
  • The back jacks are easy to understand and setup was a breeze
  • A robust bass similar to the ones that you can only hear on very expensive audiophile setups
  • Easy setup, like most speakers, but sounds so clean and looks it to tbh.

Reviews around leave speaker (3.65 of 5)

  • I have been using these as reference monitors for music production, as well as just for Youtube and Twitch, and they get plenty of volume, and have nice simple EQ controls for tuning to a room.

Reviews around noise (1.33 of 5)

  • However, after approximately 3 days, the left tweeter started producing really terrible static noise
  • I can hear them over loud machine noise and the don't get drown out by the sub, if you are thinking about getting them, do you will not be disappointed.
  • Would be nice if added some feature to kill the noise when you plug or disconnect speakers.
  • Also, no need for an Amp or even a Dac since I don't hear any humming/white noise/or distortion!!
  • No static, no extra noise, just clean clear sound that you expect from a record player

Reviews around pop (1.00 of 5)

  • Same thing happens when it's playing music from the turntable, but pops and some noise is to be expected there.
  • They almost did, until the first time I heard a loud pop come through while playing music from my PC.
  • The occasional loud pops really kill the vibe though.
