Edifier R1280DBs

The Edifier R1280DBs is the newest addition to Edifier’s mainstream bookshelf speaker line up. It features an MDF woof enclosure which is a staple signature of the R1280 series. Each speaker unit of R1280DBs has well-balanced 4-inch speaker drivers dedicated for bass, maximising bass frequency. The speakers also feature front-facing bass reflex ports to complement the bass driver, directing the punch to the listener and deepen the bass frequency even further.

Moreover, the Edifier R1280DBs used studio-grade silk dome tweeters, capable of creating a wide range of high audio frequency with much lower distortion compared to common tweeters. They also come with a sub-out output which can be used to connect to a dedicated subwoofer.

Edifier R1280DBs side controls

The Edifier R1280DBs also sports side-panel control for precision tuning and wireless remote included for maximum convenience. Furthermore, with dual RCA inputs, Bluetooth 5.0, Optical, and Coaxial input available, the Edifier R1280DBs bookshelf speakers can be connected to a wide range of devices ranging from TVs, PC, smartphones, to home audio systems.

The Edifier R1280DBs is available now at the price of RM399 on Lazada and other retails partners.

Pokdepinion: The Edifier GM5 looks pretty good and reasonably priced although I am a bit disappointed that they are not using the in-ear design the GM4 had.
