It was a happy day for me as a big fan of 2.1 speakers, as a brand new set of high-end 2.1 speakers was revealed – the Edifier S350DB. It was launched at Stars Picker Audio Cafe – which is also a heaven for audiophiles to experience top-notch audio products before making a purchase. Since it is a cafe, you can get some food and drinks while you enjoy too.
Anyway, the Edifier S350DB is a 2.1 speaker that is completely enclosed by wood, and has a dark finish. That truly creates a stunning classic look while maintaining its subtlety as a speaker.
Let’s have a look at its specs part by part. Firstly, the 0.75-inch tweeters are made out of titanium domes to create the high frequencies, a 3.5-inch aluminium diaphragm and frame for the mid-range frequencies, and an 8-inch subwoofer for superior bass quality. To ensure its sound quality is top-notch, they actually sent the Edifier S350DB to Kippel for testing.
As for its connectivity, Edifier touts a total of 5 different methods to connect to the S350DB – through optical audio, coaxial cable, Bluetooth, PC input (essentially a dedicated 3.5mm audio jack channel), and aux. As Bluetooth might get choked up by higher bitrate audio, the Edifier S350DB supports Qualcomm aptX too (learn more about it here).
The Edifier S350DB is indeed their high-end 2.1 system, as it has a Texas Instrument DSP (digital signal processor), and dedicated amplifiers for each speaker. Wow!
Then there’s the control panel for the Edifier S350DB. It has a somewhat similar layout to the one found in the R1700BT that we’ve reviewed here, but the Edifier S350DB comes with an interesting UFO-styled remote control. Unique style overall, I must say.
The Edifier S350DB is priced at RM 1,099 – and it’s available now. You can head on over to Lazada here and make your purchase right now, then bring the house down with a blissful quality of music.
By the way, go visit Stars Picker Audio Cafe – those fine folks there have the best audio devices available for your to enjoy. And it’s a cozy place too!
