I have reviewed other models of Edifier speakers and always found them to have excellent sound and build quality and the R19U 2.0 multimedia speakers are no exception.
The small bookshelf speakers are perfect for laptops, pc’s, tablets and mobile phones. While only 2w RMS the sound isn’t the loudest but is more than adequate for the uses they will be required for – playing mp3’s, watching videos, game playing etc…
Powered via USB they are also quite portable and the wooden housing makes they look stylish and they produce a clear, crisp sound even at the highest volume and have 2¾ inch (70mm) mid-range and treble units with dual magnetic circuit design. There are no complicated functions, just plug into a USB port and turn them on via the volume knob and off you go, instant quality sound. They can even be used on a phone or tablet using the aux cable (supplied).
Overall these stylish little speakers look great on a shelf or desk and produce a great clear sound and are great when streaming video or music over the internet. And with an RRP of just £29.99 they are definitely value for money.
While wouldn’t be the best speakers for playing music to room full of people they are perfect for personal use.
