As the mar­ket de­mand for mul­ti­me­dia Blue­tooth speaker con­tin­ues to grow, we've also been re­view­ing a num­ber of such speak­ers over the last cou­ple is­sues. Of course, Ed­i­fier doesn't want to miss its chance to shine in this mar­ket and have in­tro­duced the M3280BT.

Aes­thet­ics con­sid­ered, the Ed­i­fier M3280BT looks like a typ­i­cal 2.1-chan­nel sound sys­tem that comes with a cube-shaped sub­woofer and two satel­lite speak­ers. Sim­i­lar to other Ed­i­fier's speaker sys­tems, the sub­woofer is en­tirely cov­ered with high­grade black MDF wooden en­clo­sures, and its driv­ers are pro­tected by a black color net. The same de­sign is also car­ried for­ward to the two 10-inch satel­lite speak­ers.

From the fea­tures as­pect, all the ports can be found at the back of the sub­woofer. There are two RCA in­puts for users to con­nect mul­ti­ple de­vices to this speaker at once, as well as two speaker out­puts. Users can still con­trol the sys­tem's bass and tre­ble ac­cord­ing to their tastes via the two phys­i­cal knobs lo­cated at the back, and the vol­ume but­tons sit­ting in-line with the mute but­ton on the side of the speaker.

We find it a bit skep­ti­cal when Ed­i­fier con­sid­ers this a Blue­tooth speaker as there are still many wires in­volved when we set up this speaker. How­ever, set­ting up this speaker is quite sim­ple, you need to plug in the color-coded wires to the sub­woofer; pair the M3280BT with your smart de­vice and you're one step away from mu­sic play­back. For those with­out a Blue­tooth de­vice, you can still con­nect your de­vices to the speak­ers via a 3.5mm-to-RCA cable.

To test its sound per­for­mance, we con­nected the M3280BT speaker to a smart­phone and played some of our fa­vorite tunes from var­i­ous gen­res. We found the mid and low reg­is­ters dis­tinc­tive, but the highs were con­fus­ing: dur­ing one of our tracks, we could barely hear the sound of cym­bals and some­times, it was in­dis­cernible. Re­gard­ing its bass, the M3280BT is very gen­er­ous as it de­liv­ers smooth bass per­for­mance with its 6.5-inch driver, which makes it an ideal re­place­ment for your ex­ist­ing mul­ti­me­dia sys­tem and great for watch­ing movies. Also, we tried to stream the mu­sic wire­lessly to the speaker, and we're glad to say that its sound qual­ity re­mains as lis­ten­able.

In con­clu­sion, the M3280BT is a great 2.1-chan­nel speaker that can re­place your ex­ist­ing sys­tem as it de­liv­ers great sound qual­ity, and is ideal for mul­ti­me­dia use.
