Fantastic speakers, just needs one small improvement.

Summary: Fantastic sound pretty much all around. The build is aesthetically pleasing. The set up is quite easy. Everything paired up pretty good. They need to put directions on the remote control so I know how to increase or decrease the volume.
Summary: Remember Edifier? The company that now owns Stax? I recently covered their e10 Exclaim desktop speakers and found them rather impressive for just $99. While making a nice budget speaker is certainly noteworthy, part of that equation involves most other speakers in that price being rather poor.
Pros: Vivid, energetic sound with good thump and sparkle, size and shape forces good tweeter positioning with no stand required
Cons: Can be fatiguing for certain music in the long term, can't handle really high volumes very well, questionable input choices
Summary: I bought my Edifier Spinnaker E30 3 months ago and I had the following problems. First they took my money but never shipped the speakers. After about a month, I called them back... they realized their mistake and shipped them immediately.
Summary: We bought our speakers in December 2012. They worked for about 3 hours, then just emoted static. We contacted the company and they replaced the speakers. We seldom use them but again, after just a few hours of use, they stopped working. This time there was no sound at all.
Summary: These speakers look totally awesome (5 stars), but had only decent sound which was a little muddy (3 stars) but quit after only 3-4 months of use (1 star). I recommend that you do not buy this product.
Summary: Great speakers, great sound quality (volume, depth, clarity). I am somewhat disappointed that Edifier did all the hard work, but stopped at the low-hanging fruit. The speakers have to stand on their base (i.e., they cannot be mounted on a wall or upside-down from a ceiling).
Very nice sound and I am very happy with my purchase!

Summary: I purchased the speakers a couple of months ago and now I can enjoy music, videos, etc. again. I own a high end audio/video system (9k worth of components and speakers)and miss being able to listen to music without taking over a complete room.
