Ever since i moved from a “affordable” 2.1 speaker system to my very first 5.1 Dolby surround sound system back in 1997 it became quite clear to me that there was always room for sound improvement at least as long as i was willing to invest more on that. Well it did take a while for me to put enough money on the side but when i did i got a better (and higher wattage) 5.1 Dolby digital/DTS surround sound system for my TV set followed soon afterwards by two very good floor standing speakers for my brand new (at least back then) Marantz CD player. Today i may not have any floor standing speakers (limited space compared to back then) but sound is still very important to me so whenever i get the chance to test and/or use a new set of speakers i always tend to get quite excited. Today and after two weeks of non-stop tests we're going to take an in-depth look at the latest S1000DB Multimedia Speakers by our friends over at Edifier.
