Old version or new version? Old version is known for dead capacitors so it can be a cheap fix if you have the lobang. But there are other failmodes so even if it is fixed now it will last maybe another 3 years.
Do you have any lobangs to recommend, or even do fixes yourself? Saw your thread on fixing the m50w here.
I'm concerned about value. I'm not sure if there's anything that provides better value than LSX at that price point or even lower. Any 2.0/2.1 to recommend that doesnt take up a lot of desk space? Got a dual monitor setup here so huge bookshelves won't fit on my table.
Rushing this out before 9.9 for the people who are deciding. Thus the review will be coming in parts. The manufacturer provided their measurement on the box. Variation of 5dB is pretty decent, although the shape is not so decent, particularly the 10kHz peak. This kind of shape is easy to...
If you lose the remote you still can control volume, treble/bass and source switching. But you lose the ability to change EQ setting. And the default setting after power up has a bit more treble and bass compared to normal.
Bass, better than average for the price. And what also helps is that they tend not to have overly-loud treble.
Luckily, no auto standby except for T5.
Well, above is my general experience after reviewing 4 or 5 Edifiers. I don't have experience with the S880DB. But it's $277 now on Lazada so why not. It seems to perform pretty decently for a small speaker. Not as good bass quantity as R1850DB but that's reasonable due to smaller size and rear port.
The metal tweeter seems to roll off too early tho, I saw the same issue with S350DB which has the same tweeter.
First glance the R1850DB seems to have the performance advantage but you're paying more money into S880DB since it is more technologically advanced: Smaller size, with USB input and better bluetooth (aptx)
As Wwenze's measurements show, the S350DB, like most of the desktop systems in the $400-ish range, have pretty limited bass performance below 40Hz.
Personally, I would only recommend getting a separate 2.0 with a subwoofer, if
1) you are very sure that the 2.0 speakers sound much better (or maybe can go louder without distorting) than integrated 2.1s (like the S350db) in your environment, or
2) you are very sure that you want more bass extension 40Hz and below. Which is not just for movies and bassheads, because music can also have a lot of good quality bass that cheaper subs cannot reproduce. Or,
3) you are very sure that the chosen brand of speakers will help you score some chicks. Or something. Or,
4) you want to assemble a relatively affordable speaker set with used speakers.
5) And that you will probably need to go beyond $500.
Unless you're going for used ones, new speakers / subwoofer that perform better than 2.1s tend not to be cheaper than 500 (collectively). Especially the better subwoofers. And you might need to budget for an amplifier if you choose passive 2.0 speakers.
