These Edifier S1000DB speakers will be the ones I listen to while I work.
I left my old home stereo in my old home. It was hard-wired into the walls and I didn't want the new owners to have to sort all that shit out. As I move into a new place I do not want to deal with wires at all. Bluetooth 4.0 has become plenty good enough for my daily listening.
Also: I really enjoyed my previous set of Edifier bookshelf speakers.
I gave the prior set away when I moved out of said home and into a VW Van for the summer, or I'd still be using them!
Not having the RT1700BTs any more, however, left me to check out what else Edifier might have to offer and the S1000DB caught my eye, and ear. The bass on the S1000DB is cleaned up. The mid-range is clear, warm and super well defined. I found that I could distinctly hear and place instruments while listening to music played via iTunes.
While there are many wiring options, I use the speakers via Bluetooth. I am trying to avoid wires for now. That'll likely come back to haunt me.
The cases do not look as cheap as the RT1700BT and I have also considered placing these in the living room for general household music.
While big, and heavy, if you want a nice listening experience while working on your computer all-day either of these sets of speakers are a treat, but the S1000DB are a much more polished product. They sound better and look better.

I just got back from a longer-than-usual family holiday during which I did much less work than I usually do when I'm off (I recommend both to you!), but one exception I made was tuning into Michael Moore's outstanding new podcast, Rumble, which Moore records from his apartment, usually with a special guest (I tuned […]
