Few days a go i went to Unity Plaza get USB speakers for a friend of mine and after testing the speakers i found them to have this bit rich sound then compare to other computer speakers witch are small. this speakers was form a company call Edifier witch i never heard of. USB speakers are called the Edifier M1250. M1250 sound better then most small USB speakers i have seen, for Rs1000 (US$9) this was a deal, they do look stylish as well. normally most small PC speakers comes with set of bad speakers that can only do the mind range, but when i open the front cover of this speakers found that it has an oval shape speakers that you normally see in TV’s. this got me thinking, Edifier is in to sound.
i remember seeing set of speakers that look like book shelf speakers. once i got home i went to the Edifier web site and found they had a range of bookshelf size speakers. i went back to Unity Plaza and ask whats the model of this speakers and they told me its the R1900T III, witch was Edifiers top of the range ones in there Studio seres. this was Rs.8500 (US$80) witch was at a resonabl price range but not for a China made set of speakers. but i thought what the heck and bought the speakers.
speakers box are made of of wood, most speakers this size nowadays made out of plastic, when i open the front cover and i was kind a surprised to see a 5″ woofer with a cotton cone. most speaker cones are made of plastic. im not a fan of plastic cone speakers as they don’t sound that good. the twitter is a cloth dome Ferro fluid cooled tweeter.
Thoes who don’t know what Ferro fluid cooled is, twitter is just a normal twitter but between the voice coil and magnet they have put a small amount of special fluid. this help the voice coil to run more cooler. helping to have a light voice coil for better sound and at the same time high power rating. speakers has built in passive cross-overs, they are done by Phil Jones
i brought the speakers home and connected them up, it has a build in amplifier that can do 30wx2 RMS. they are also magnetic shielded meaning you can put them near your CRT monitor with out making the screen goes nuts 😀
i was shocked to hear how good this sound, it can almost put aside with my BOSE AM-5, and i always thought Chinese people don’t have a ear 😀 this has a warm sound you normally hear in a tube set, but at the same time it has the tump. acording to Edifire spakers has a Frequency response: 60Hz ~ 20 kHz. speakers do tend to response more to mid range then to lower bass range but the worm sound is nice. if your a Smooth Jazz lover, this is the speaker set of you.
after hearing this and since it was hard to belive my ears that this was made by a Chinese company, i did some reseach in to Edifier and then found the man behind the spakers are Peter Duminy, well after all he’s no Chinese 😀 he has work for BBC, and B&W, what more can i say, its B&W 😀
all and all speakers are really worth for the money and sound great for a bookshelf speaker set and the power output it more then fine. this can even be used at a home type studio as monitor speakers. yes they are that good, as it high light all part of the human hearing spectrum.
