Along with the speakers you get 15ft cable to connect the speakers, a 3.5mm to RCA cable and an RCA to RCA cable. There is a remote, which can change the volume of the speaker independently. From taking out of the box to playing music, took around 15 mins.
They come in a cool shiny black finish, with the Edifier logo on the front. They are big, and may not fit onto my bookshelves. I am a fan of the angle of the speaker, to allow for sound to travel more directly. The cover can be removed to display the drivers. I am a fan of this look, but you can keep the cover on if needed.
The back of the speaker can take an AUX, RCA, optical, and coaxial cable. You can also connect via Bluetooth. The back also features controls for treble, bass, and volume.
Overall the sound feels steady and I didn’t experience any distortions at high volume. I did find the bass was lacking a bit, so you may have to think about adding an extra sub-woofer.
The Edifier R1850DB is a great all-round set of speakers. They have a great finish to them and offer the option for an extra sub-woofer to be added. Finally, check out our other audio reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
