Good for the price
Firstly the 5 stars is based on a purchase price of $128.
The speakers are a very competent set of bookshelf speakers. Decent mids; but treble isn’t crisp and bass isn’t deep enough to replace a small sub.
Because of the internal equaliser this speaker doesn’t suit any studio work as it will not play raw sound. This internal equaliser suits newer music like pop/rnb/electro more than classical and classic rock etc.
Will be loud enough to use in a small room but not likely for a house party.
Purchased in October 2020 at eBay for $126.00.
WOW. Great Sound
I have always wanted small bedside speakers with a REALLY GOOD SOUND. Small speakers usually lack an even spread of treble and middle, especially bass. My brother once had a stereo with micro speakers back in the 1980's. They sounded really good. But you can't get that sort of quality anymore - so I thought.
Most $150 speakers nowadays sound like a fart through a plastic can. Like the fake laughter and clapping in those poor 1970's US television shows.
I did some research on the internet and came across the Edifier R1700BT. I listened to com...parisons with much more expensive speakers. The Edifier won hands down. Seriously, the frequency response is well balanced and songs I would only listen to on $200 headphones can now be listened to on the Edifier. The cable between main speaker and satellite speaker is a whopping 5 metres long. The speakers are well manufactured, have some weight to them and were very well packaged. The bluetooth connection worked instantly - no fuss - no big setup. It comes with a usable remote. I adjusted my EQ a bit on my phone and RELAXED. Minor, very minor downside is that the speakers are not very loud. But then again, they are shelf speakers - and in my case - bedroom speakers. The bass can be a bit overpowering so that I turned the bass-boost off on the phone. I bid you good night as I drift off to jazzy tunes on my Edifier speakers.
Purchased in April 2019 for $149.00.
Expensive sound without deep pockets....
Way back in the gloomy 1970s that was London, I owned a gorgeous set of Wharfedale Linton speakers and Lenco turntable. I don't recall the amp that made up the audio triumvirate, but I do recall how enthralled I was at how my much loved albums' sounds were so magnificently reproduced.
Years on, my vinyl collection has been replaced with CDs and digital files, and I have grown to loathe the fact that I have never been able to afford the sort of sound reproduction that the Lintons gave out - for the last twenty or so years has seen the rise of ...

Best Affordable Computer Speakers with Bluetooth
I was after a new pair of computer speakers and came across Edifier R1700BT. After reading the good reviews on it, decided it was my choice. Bought them from wireless1_eshop on eBay for $215.15. They arrived the very next day at the collection point in my local Woolworth. Really pleased with these speakers, they sound exactly what I was after - solid and punchy. There is bluetooth connectivity, volume, bass and treble controls on the speakers and it comes with a remote control. Setting up the speakers is a very simple step and there are minimal...wiring to do. I highly recommend this product for anyone who are after a good set of speakers which is quite versatile - at least 3 connectivity options that sounds excellent. Wireless1 communication and speedy delivery is topnotch as well.
Top quality sound, rock bottom price, with bluetooth!!
For sheer value for money Edifier always rate high in tech/sound magazine or website reviews. Now that I own a pair of Edifier R1700BT I can see/hear why. The stereo sound is music to my ears. I've proudly mounted them to my kitchen wall and they look almost as good as they sound. All you have to do is select your favorite music streaming app, iTunes, Spotify etc and after you initially pair your phone to the speakers, they will forever automatically connect every time you walk in to the room seamlessly. I have also connected these speakers via...cables to my TV and they improve the sound immensely, they particularly shine with action movies, giving you that cinema quality sound to your TV. Included with the speakers are a remote control which is a simple but useful addition particularly if you place your speakers in a difficult to reach location. Also included is a 5 metre speaker connector cable, which allows you to spread your two speakers from one side of a room to the other, maximizing the stereo effect. I have also put a watt meter to the power cable and when you turn off the speakers via the remote control the speakers use 0.5 watts of power in standby, or if you can be bothered there is a hard switch on the back of the active speaker that you can put into the off position which prevents any standby power being used. In summary these speakers are 66 watts in total so it's not going to ghetto blast the paint off your wall but it puts out a decent amount of decibels, enough to get your neighbors complaining but not so loud that they call the police. I like these speakers so much I may buy another pair for the lounge and sell my expensive stereo system on eBay.
