I have been very happy with Edifier active speakers as a simple solution for Google Chromecast Audio deployments through the house. The lack of additional amplifier makes these setups clean and simple, which is why I prefer them. I have R1700DB and R1280T -- both sound good and look good.

I'm not an audiophile, but I can tell crummy speakers from good ones. (I can't tell good ones from great ones)

Just wanted to say thanks. Using them since Tuesday, they sound great.

I feel you. Doesn’t matter the sound signature. Some Bose speakers do sound great, but companion 20 really? Has to be a troll

So I do have a question for any of the sound experts here. If I wanted to use these speakers as wireless or BT rear surround speakers from my Denon AVR-S740H, can it be done. SImply because of room dynamics, I cannot place wired speakers anywhere and want to create a 5.1/7.1 system if I can. I am 3.1 now.

I had considered Amphony previously, however wasn't sure of the reliability, plus the fact that it was still connecting the speaker to a wireless receiver.

If a BT kit or anything similar would work, might you recommend it by name?

I am waiting to receive pair of 1280db for $182 from amazon I just purchased.

I see the small specs difference in terms of frequency. Is this sale price and improvement in performance worth the upgrade to the s1000db for and extra ~$100? I'll be connecting using Bluetooth to listen to music from my phone.

Thanks

How are these compared to the Sonos one or Google nest audio speakers? Would they be good for a home gym?

that would be like comparing a TV to a theatre. These are much larger speakers that produce much better sound. The Sonos one or google nest are meant to go on a kitchen counter or night stand to save space.

Largely depends on how much space you have for a set of speakers. These are much bigger than the 1280s. If space is not a constraint these are a no brainer for extra 100.

Gotcha....

Are there any active speakers out there that have speakers wirelessly connect with each other like the Sonos or Nest?

Not an expert but unless I’m missing something, your receiver will only have speaker level output for the surround speakers, but the powered speaker or Bluetooth transmitter will only take line level input. I don’t think there’s a easy way to do this.
My best bet is a separate decoder that has line level outputs for each channel.

One of the better RFD grabs I have had for awhile. Had to laugh when I checked out the box and it had an over 50lb marker on it from Canada Post. A bit larger than expected but these speakers are sweet. The sound through optical from the PC is nothing to complain about as well. Incredible build ... Great sound.

Too bad these don't have a 3.5 aux in to plug an echo dot in. Would probably have to get a RCA to aux cable
