Edifier C3 2.1 Multimedia Speaker Set Review

The Edifier C3 is a pretty unique PC multimedia speaker system. Unlike conventional 2.1 multimedia speaker system, the Edifier C3 is a separate-component speaker system. This means its amplifier is separate from the subwoofer with its own enclosure.

This has several advantages, from giving you total freedom in placing the subwoofer to easier access to the amplifier controls. Separating the amplifier from the subwoofer also improves its heat dissipation since the amplifier does not need to share the cramp subwoofer enclosure with the bass driver.

The Edifier C3 speaker system is well-designed with easy-to-use connectors, extra input and output ports and a remote control. Its build quality is excellent but the use of medium-density fibreboard (MDF) in the construction of the satellite speakers and subwoofer do make them somewhat fragile. Care should be taken when transporting or moving them around.

The E.I.D.C. feature worked as expected which should benefit everyone but those who intend to blast loud music at their parties. Power freaks may want to look at other speakers instead, but be prepared to pay much higher prices if you don’t want to sacrifice quality and functionality.

The Edifier C3's key advantages are its value-added features like the E.I.D.C. system, its separate amplifier and remote control. So, if you are looking for these features in a 2.1 speaker system, you should definitely take a look at the Edifier C3.

If you are interested in buying an Edifier speaker system, why not win one? We have just launched a giveaway contest together with Edifier, where you stand to win not only an Edifier 5.1 speaker system but also ten Edifier earphones! For more details on the contest, click here!

Our Review System

Tech ARP is committed to developing new ways to improve your experience with us. As part of our continuous efforts to improve the value of our reviews to you, we are implementing a multi-tier review system.

This review system is designed to allow you to quickly receive information on the latest hardware or software. This new system also allows you to quickly get the gist of the review without reading through it. This can be very useful, especially in situations where you need to make a quick purchase decision.

In this new system, we start with a Product Overview whenever a company sends us a press release about their latest product. We shift through extraneous PR-talk to create a straightforward summary of the product's features as well as specifications. This allows you to quickly find out all the pertinent details about the product, without reading through official press releases.

When we receive the product for review, we will quickly take photos of it and create a Pictorial Review. The purpose of a pictorial review is to allow you, the reader, to quickly examine the product visually. It may help you make better purchase decisions, especially if you cannot wait for the full review.

After thorough testing, we will post a Comprehensive Review of the product. This adds on to the pictorial review with comprehensive test results and our final conclusion on the product.

But no matter whether you are reading a Pictorial Review or a Comprehensive Review, you can always read the summary of the review as well as examine the product's specifications right on the first page. In all our new reviews, we will maintain the first page as a Product Overview page. If the product is listed in PriceGrabber, you can also check out the lowest price online.

We hope this new review system will make your experience a lot more enjoyable and informative!
