Great Edifier Sub-woofer Sound,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edifier Aurora 2.1 Speaker with Slim Subwoofer and Compact Satellites - Stormy Black (Electronics)
I bought these to use with a new PC. I was looking for maximum output and great sound quality without them taking up too much desk space. This is exactly what I got when I purchased these speakers. The Satellites themselves are only a little bigger in diameter than a golf ball and the subwoofer is less than a foot long and has a 2 inch diameter. As for the sound - well it's crystal clear and has just the right amount of oomph coming from the sub. I haven't had the volume any higher than 3 or 4 on the unit itself - I then use the PC to further control it but lets say that they don't need to be set too loudly to fill a room aprox, 20' x 12', for everyday listening pleasure.
I would have given them 5 stars if it wasn't for one small niggling point, and that's the length of cable for the satellites, 400mm to each from the connection on the sub, it works but for my own purposes I would have preferred at least twice that to position them right on the corner of the desk. That said the main thing with speakers is sound quality and that is second to none.
If you are looking to replace, upgrade or even as a first time purchase then you'll look long and hard to find anything to better these.

You have to remember these were originally designed to suit Laptop use. Which accounts for the short satellite speaker leads they are long enough to cope with a 17" lappie and are a huge improvement over the thin squeaky offerings shoe-horned into a laptop case.
The bonus though is the ability to substitute a Personal Music Player in place of the laptop and then these speakers can provide a clean punchy sound in a mid-sized room without sounding stretched or distorting. The only downside is the odd audible affect that MP3 compression has on the music, giving some tracks the aural sense that either a Dalek or Sparky's magic piano are singing along with the original artists.
This is not an issue when playing back from CD or home ripped tracks but some of the You Tube source is distinctly lacking in quality and this is thrown into prominence by speakers with this level of sound quality. What may be fine on you 60p iPod ear-buds, but the same track on the Edifier would see it consigned to the bin, Tread carefully and you will be rewarded.
