Edifier R1700BTs Active Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers - $187 (reg. $234)

Deal Link:
Price:

20% off
Retailer:
Edifier
Thanksgiving deal on Edifier 1700BTs for 20% off. The 's' in these means that they have a dedicated sub-out port and an updated remote. The sound quality will be the same as R1700BT which goes for $203 right now.

Good deal imo. Outside of lightning deals, this is ATL for these speakers.

Also, with my last post being for Edifier deals as well, it might start to seem like I am paid to advertise this. That's not the case, I am just subscribed to Edifier deals and I love their speakers (pay me, Edifier!!!)

Ask me any questions you have.

I just bought MP700 Bluetooth Portable @CAD $ 129.99 (has been +-70$ in the past.)
Is it a fair price @ 129 $ ?

I have some questions, not being an audiophile
  1. it doesn't look like it, but these cannot be hung on a wall, correct?
  2. Is a separate sub pretty much mandatory, otherwise there will be very little bass?
  3. Is there a noticable delay when using Bluetooth?

Can you pair these with the passive speakers on a Denon 3700h? Or is it passive speakers OR Bluetooth speakers?

Correct, you need speaker stands or put on a shelf/desk
No, these are super bassy out of box
No, would still recommend connection using supplied cables as BT has compression. I use mine as plugged in with Mac and switched to BT via remote whenever on iPhone/iPad.

Perhaps you are right as I haven't heard this model, but I do have the R2000DBs which are a step up. I would not call them super bassy. Obviously there will be no comparison to having a dedicated subwoofer, but even with my expectations at a reasonable level, the bass was just OK in my opinion.

I bought the R1700BTs during the last refurbished sale and I didn't find it super bassy. Actually, I think it is not enough bass.

How do these compare to the S1000DB you posted before? Is the S1000DB worth the extra $100? Can't find a good comparison of the two.

That's a different and old model. The BT doesn't have sub out, bluetooth 4.0 and also the has the old remote. These ones are an updated version and have sub out.

Maybe sound signature of 1700BT and BTS differs.

I have regular 1700BT from BestBuy and bass is neck to neck with my Polk Audio soundbar.

Go for the S1000DB if you have the budget and space. The reason you can’t find comparison is simply because they are not comparable. The S1000DB is on a different level. They are considerably larger in size too.

I would say they are alright. I am sure they sound really good for a bluetooth speaker, but the fact that they are around 5-6 years old is a bit concerning. Just like a lot of bluetooth speakers, their sub-bass is going to be lackluster. Good in mids.
The issue is that they have Bluetooth 4.0. With aptx, it would not be that bad, but I think for that price, there are better speakers out there.

I am personally partial to Anker Soundcore Motion+. They sound amazing for the price.
I think you would not regret your purchase, but if you can cancel still, you could consider doing that.

Just to add to this, they give you a dedicated sub-out port just so you can add a subwoofer and make them more bassy. They will not be bassy out of the box, but the mids are going to be amazing, like pretty much all Edifier speakers around this price.
Also, in my opinion, you will not notice a lot of compression vs wired because of aptx HD and Bluetooth 5.0. The technology has gotten really good. It would take an audiophile to notice the difference between the two, which as OP mentioned, he is not.

Interesting... does Best Buy has demo model in store? Now I want to go and compare.
