Ed­i­fier R1800BT


HWM (Philippines) - - Test - By Jon­nah Lynne Pante

When por­ta­ble speak­ers started dom­i­nat­ing the au­dio cat­e­gory, tra­di­tional and bulky mul­ti­me­dia speak­ers fol­lowed suit with Blue­tooth-ca­pa­bil­ity in­jected to them. We had the chance to have a closer look and lis­ten to one of their kind: the Ed­i­fier R1800BT book­shelf speaker.

The R1800BT comes with a 19mm silk dome tweeter for its tre­ble unit and a 4-inch bass unit. Out of the box, the Ed­i­fier R1800BT comes in a box de­sign with a glossy sur­face. Clothed in an all­black frame, it es­pouses a min­i­mal­ist, pre­mium look, which makes it ap­pro­pri­ate to be seated next to stylish fur­ni­ture pieces.

It also has a loaded pack­age with dual RCA to dual RCA au­dio ca­ble, 3.5mm to dual RCA au­dio con­nect­ing ca­ble, and a speaker con­nect­ing ca­ble along with its tiny re­mote con­trol, a clean­ing cloth, and a book­let for quick in­stal­la­tion guide.

Sit­u­ated at the back of its ac­tive speaker are the usual con­trols for vol­ume, bass, and tre­ble, as well as au­dio in­put ports and its power switch, while on the front is an in­di­ca­tor light. It also comes with a re­mov­able soft speaker grille that pro­tects the in­sides of the Ed­i­fier R1800BT from dirt and dust.

We were able to play a num­ber of our fa­vorite tunes on the speak­ers via Blue­tooth and its 3.5mm jack. Pair­ing our de­vices to the Ed­i­fier R1800BT is a seam­less task, which we did ei­ther by press­ing the Blue­tooth on the re­mote or the vol­ume dial found at the back.

In terms of over­all au­dio per­for­mance, the Ed­i­fier R1800BT made a good im­pres­sion by gen­er­at­ing clear and bal­anced tunes with sharp tre­ble and punchy bass with­out over­whelm­ing the vo­cals.
