I don't even know if people still check this anymore but I figure I'll throw it out there and hopefully someone will find this message one day LOL (kind of message in a bottle type of deal). So I bought these speakers but was never fully satisfied with them, anyone know how long is the burn in period on these speakers? Also I find even though they have decent low end but compare to subwoofer it still feel like a chunk is missing. So I currently got a DAC that feed to these speakers and I can also run a parallel line that feed to the subwoofer (haven't bought yet). Issue is because these speakers don't have sub out so I'm forced to run a line from the DAC. But now I'm wondering is there a good way to adjust volume on both the speakers and the sub? The sub will be a powered sub so it will have volume knob on them but it gets a bit tedious to match volume with speakers all the time. Or am I basically screwed in my scenario? Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks guys! EDIT: It's meant for TV and source is Chrcomecast -> HDMI Audio Splitter -> FiiO D3 -> Edifier S1000DB.

I still have no solution but I've put it on pause for now since I don't use my TV that much anymore these days. I've allocated my fund back to headphone now LOL. Like you said, the build is amazing, also one of the best looking speakers around. Just unfortunate that I didn't find the sound impress me despite reading through soooooooooo many reviews and all of them are like 5/5 perfect reviews. I'm outside of return period now so I can't return it anymore, but I think for you I'd suggest return it and get a different 2.1 set or even just active speakers with sub out. But I did find for bang of your buck, it was really hard to beat the Logitech Z-2300, especially now you can find second ones for super cheap. Too bad that it doesn't have remote so it's hard to use it for TV. The hunt continues, also let me know if you find anything else that works better for what we're looking for. Thanks!

I own these, am picky as hell and couldn't be more pleased. I run a goggle Chromecast to them, use it for Bluetooth and have my TV passthrough optical to them for Movies.
Only complaint is that they are a bit bass heavy for my liking, but they still surpass my audio needs.

I want to use it in UK so I need 220V there, so does the PSU or adapter support 110 V (US) to 220 V (UK, Asia etc.)?

I would consider joining this at $250, but with shipping costs it is only a ~7% discount, which isn't worth the longer wait for an unreturnable item :-/
Edit: I'm an idiot.... didn't realize that the low price on this was $275. <$300 shipped seems like a good deal on these.

I have the HiVi Swan M200 MKIII's (very decent powered speakers, soon to be replaced/upgraded by me)--and every time I look at these Edifier speakers, I think they must be using the same basic box, possibly also drivers.
There are reviews out there: some on Amazon (not particularly flattering) & a few scattered comments on Head-Fi.
I did a LOT of research before buying the Swans 1+ yr ago, and have done even more lately into powered studio monitors that people use for music listening (small subset of an already small sample). FYI, the Swans & Edifiers fit into a miniscule "market" of powered speakers that are NOT studio monitors and are (apparently) intended primarily for music listening.
In studio monitors, as in all things electronic--the last thing most care about is how it actually sounds.

I have a different pair of Swans--the M200 MKIII's (~$430 incl. shipping). IMO they're very pleasing for desktop audio: they straddle the line between pro monitors (powered, controls for tone) & high-end audio (pretty wooden side-caps, nice grill/covering, a "friendly" music voicing).
In a couple months I'll upgrade to (almost certainly) the Yamaha HS7's--not because the Swans are bad or deficient in any way (they're very good), but just because I want larger bass/mid-bass driver + stronger electronics to better match several endgame headphone amp/preamps I'm using. I'll probably sell the Swans at that time, or give them to my brother for his sys.

My thanks go to you and Pharmaboy for the feedback on the Swans stuff. I feel compelled to check them out fully now. To be honest, when I first saw the brand it was for some low-end computer speakers that just looked odd and ill-conceived to me, but even then I was impressed by the fact that they looked well made. I might just have to get the Swans M50 2.1 to find out for myself.
I know what you mean about mids on 2.1 systems. There just isn't a single perfect system for all scenarios for less than the price of a house. That's why I keep mixing things up. I have a pair of National Electronics (Panasonic) 2-way speakers with 3" paper cone tweeters and "woofers" that are more like "yappers," but they shine in the mids and I hook them up for a few weeks every year just to enjoy their unique sound and for some beautiful clear mids. My best sounding speakers are DCM CX-27 3-ways that I got for free while cleaning out store-room and my second best are NHT SuperOnes that I got free at a church rummage sale as they were closing up (I volunteered $10 because there had been a $5 price tag on one of them but they refused it!). All of these speakers have one great thing or another about them. I know the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 are very common and not spectacular in the midrange, but they are some great easy-listening self-powered speakers for surprisingly larger spaces than I ever imagined and I'm more impressed with them than ever I thought I'd be. I think they actually get sold short, but it looks like the Swans M50 2.1 are a clear step up in both fidelity and build quality. If I do decide to get a set, and I am fighting the temptation, I'll be back here to announce it.
