Good to know. What about voice quality? I have some Dudios from a previous RFD Hot Deal and they are awful for calls.

I don't know about specs, but I think the P841 is the same headphone that also has a built in mic. The H840 is just a headphone. That was a only difference between the two I was able to find.

Please advise and guide me a way to connect all 3 sets together ..considering these speakers are Active it does not require an amp.

I'm not sure how accurate my assessment is so take it for what it's worth. I find the R1850 speakers to be more powerful in that it can fill a room better. If you have a subwoofer to connect to it, you're golden.

The speakers on the S350 are a bit smaller but with the subwoofer, I think it is perfect for a PC, especially for gaming. The bass on the 1850s aren't bad but it's not noticeable like with the 350 obviously.

As for the sound, they both sound amazing so I can't say which one is cleaner.

You need a pre-amp that can take a digital surround audio signal over HDMI or digital coaxial/optical and then output analog audio over three sets of RCA audio cables. Something like this:

I bought some headphones on Primecables that had ANC at 30$, I'm surprised even the 80$ here don't have that.

Which of the Bluetooth headphones are the best "bang for your bucks" in term of build/sound quality? I might just pick up another pair of 30$ one, not sure if the other ones are worth it. The 100$ ones are kind of iffy for me as they don't fold.

Thank you! It seems to me that a wired system, with receiver, centre and sub is a better way to go then these bluetooth systems for home theatre set-up?

I'm planning for an 85" Sony TV with tower speakers on either side, etc. etc. Am I correct in my assumption that I should ignore options like Edifier? My needs are 50% television; 30% movies; 20% video games. Appreciate any insight.

Thanks!

Yea, Edifier speakers are more suitable for music or nearfield listening. For your case i think it's much better to go with true surround.

Just got my 1850s today. Really fast shipping from Amazon fulfillment center. Shipped via INTELCOM. Took a day to be delivered in Ontario.

Something that did surprise me, the speaker cabinets are gloss black on the sides; very prone to dust and fingerprints. I also have the 1700s and those are wood-finish cabinets.

That's a very interesting device. Have you tried it? I wonder how's the quality. I want to potentially use some PA speakers for movie experience out of HDMI.

Sorry, no experience. But given the current era of many cheap devices with decent quality DACs, I'd assume it'll be pretty good.

Just got these speakers for $149, connected them to the TV and used them on Bluetooth from my phone, very easy to set up and sounded amazing. If your sitting on the fence about them, just buy them you will not regret them at this price. Thanks op
