Monday, July 31, 2017

A radical way to spice up the "thumping boom" and sound quality is with a 2.1 stereo system such as the Edifier M1360 or M1380 speaker systems!

2 watts per speaker
Being a 2.1 speaker system with active subwoofer, the Edifier M1360 features  two audio channels (left and right) satellite speakers, as well as an amplifier built-in the subwoofer which allows you to play louder sound without distortion.

Having the amplifier already integrated in the subwoofer means the amplifier power is already matched to the subwoofer (aka loudspeaker).
The actively powered 4.5-watt subwoofer really brings out the bass out of music tracks and movies thanks in part to the positioning of the subwoofer driver, which is orientated downward on the bottom of the subwoofer enclosure; hence its name down angled or down firing subwoofer.

The feet on the M1360 subwoofer enclosure have rubber shock absorbers to de-couple a subwoofer from the floor. The clearance between the floor and the loudspeaker is 1-inch thanks to the 1-inch tall feet.

The two satellite speakers contain a separate midbass and tweeter driver for midrange and high range frequencies. The size of the midbass is 106 mm, while the size of the tweeter is 50mm x 90 mm.
Both the satellite speakers and subwoofer housing is made of Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) wood finish in matt black. The back of the satellite speakers features high gloss black acrylic plastic.
As far as accessories, you get a wired remote with volume control knob, audio mute button and headphone jack on the back.

AUX line-in input and power on/off switch are located on the back of the subwoofer. The 1.2 meter power cable is directly attached to the subwoofer and inputs 220-240 volts at 70mA.
Setting up the M1360 speaker subwoofer system is straight forward. Simply connect the satellite speakers 3.5 mm black cable to the speaker output port on the back of the subwoofer enclosure.
Then, connect the 3.5 mm green cable from the wired controller into the audio jack of your computer or other audio source like a CD player, smartphone or tablet.
The subwoofer weighs just under 3 kg so it has a good weight to it that feels nice and steady when standing. The dimensions of the satellite speakers are 6.4 cm wide, 11.2 cm deep and 14 cm tall. The dimensions of the subwoofer are 15.8 cm wide, 25.2 cm deep and 22.5 cm tall.
For a compact sound system, the Edifier M1360 desktop 2.1 speaker system offers an overall good sound quality and detailed mid-range without any cracking or distortion coming from the satellite speakers or the subwoofer. The satellite speakers frequency response is 150Hz¬20kHz, while the subwoofer frequency response is 20Hz¬170Hz. Check out the review of the Edifier T5 powered subwoofer and the Edifier M201BT
