Deal: Edifier R1280T Powered Bookshelf Speakers $69.99 - Prime Day 2018

If you’re in the market for a new pair of bookshelf speakers, the Edifier R1280T are currently worth checking out. These speakers typically cost $99.99 to buy, although they are currently available as part of Amazon’s Prime Day priced at just $69.99. Which marks a fairly substantial saving considering the original price.

These are not just bookshelf speakers, but powered bookshelf speakers so there is no need for a separate amp. You can simply just plug in your playback device and you are good to go. Although, these do not feature a built-in preamp so turntables connected via the phono ports will need an additional preamp somewhere along the line. In terms of the design, it is clear Edifier has gone for a retro look with the R1280T speakers, resulting in a traditional wood case along with grey speaker grill style.

As for the sound, in use here are 4-inch bass drivers accompanied by 13 mm dome tweeters which together look to offer a frequency response of 75 Hz - 18 kHz and a total power output of 2 x 21-watts. So while they are not the most bass-heavy bookshelf speakers, the sound quality should be fairly rounded overall. In either case, the speakers do feature a built-in tone control allowing the user to adjust the treble and bass from -6 to +6 db. While a remote control is also included in the package for easier volume control. To add to the deal, Edifier also throws in a number of different cables which should make it even easier to connect any device (including your smartphone or PC) to these speakers.
