Edifier S Pro Bluetooth Powered Speaker Review | AudioholicsEdifier make great products, you only have to look through the hardware reviews on this site to see that. It was very clear from the first moment I heard any sound from them that this would not be an apples to apples test if I compared the two. Indeed, I have nothing to compare them to so I decided to just test them as I would any other speaker. The first thing that hits you is the build quality. Edifier make solid equipment, well put together, made with love and a passion for sound but if looks alone were the measure here the S Pro is a cut above anything Edifier has yet to produce.

In my experience, people fall into two camps with wood—they love it or hate it. The sides and top are covered with a thick wood veneer, which partially explains their heft. I like the look, but I must admit they might appear out of place if all your other components are black. The S Pro are bi-amplified, with a Class D amplifier sending 50 watts per channel to 5. There are a plethora of connections on the backside of the speaker housing the amplifier. Picky, picky. Easier is the sleekly stylish remote control that Edifier includes.
So I used some TV soundbars for my living room since then. In terms of design and features, the Edifier S Pro totally outclasses my previous systems. The product comes with two bookshelf speakers and a remote control. The speakers are fairly heavy since the enclosure is made of thick wood. The right speaker is the primary unit since it has all controls and connections. The left speaker only has one port to connect to the right speaker.
Disclaimer: The Edifier S Pro Active speakers sent to us is a sample in exchange for our honest opinion. We thank the team at Edifier and Essence for giving us this opportunity.
As we learned at the CES Expo show earlier this year, powered speakers are popping up in droves and seriously threatening the comfort zone that passive speakers have enjoyed with most audiophiles and consumers alike. Although Edifier is a relative unknown in the USA marketplace, they've been around since originating in Beijing China as the brainchild of a small group of enterprising music lovers. Today they have 3, employees and produce 8 million units for consumer electronics and multimedia PC applications every year in their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility distributed in over 70 countries worldwide. When I received a press release from Edifier about them giving everyone the opportunity to be an audiophile with the launch of its new S Pro, it piqued my interest. The S Pro speakers feature a new electro-acoustic technology that is coupled with a low-distortion flat diaphragm tweeter and an aluminum cone woofer that takes full advantage of its miniDSP function to reach what they claim to be a culmination of incredibly loud and heavy bass. Edifier touts the thoughtfulness of construction of the S Pro speakers as evident with the thick wood side panels designed to highlight the aspects of the audio design.
For the first time, Edifier has brought cutting edge sound technology to a classic style. These speakers elevate the classic style of bookshelf speakers to the next level of sound with modern sensibilities and advancements. The SPro bookshelf speakers are the perfect blend of classic design and high performance. Edifier paid much attention to detail with the time-consuming process of wood processing seen on these hi-tech bookshelf speakers. The Spro gives you the feeling of luxury and edgy all at the same time.
