Summary: Rating was driven by price of under £30. But also, unit is very well made and the finish and tactile quality is high. These got a very good reception when originally released in 2010. At that time there was little else available and it retailed at around £70 I think. A friend of mine bought one around 3 years ago and I remember, on hearing it, that it didn't sound that much better than the unit from Aldi I had bought which was reduced to £10.
Summary: I have a small television which has a sound output that resembles living inside a tin. This particual TV has no sound output except for headset. I used the Aurora2.1 to enhance the sound from this output and it works brilliantly. Fully satisfied with its performance particularly the subwoofer it is powerful and not physically intrusive. If I have a gripe it would have been useful for an optional Remote control you know basic on/off and volume.
Summary: These speakers are small and have a great sound, nicely fit under my monitor saving space on the desk. The only thing that could improve them is the little red light on the sub woofer. It's on, all the time and given that the way of turning the speakers on or off is a little vague, it would be great if it turned green when on and turned red when off, letting you know that they are connected to the mains.
Good sound for the money, great design/build, but transportable rather than portable

Summary: Although these Edifier Aurora 2.1 loudspeakers look suitable for an MP3 player, they aren't really designed for this, they are specifically made for a placing around a small laptop or notebook. If you don't mind the clutter though, you can attach an iPod to them, or they could supply a bit of a bass lift to a small LCD TV or desktop PC in a bedroom or bedsit if you move in closer to view.
Summary: Auch nach vier Monaten sehr Zufrieden gute Klang. Bässe kommen gut rüber auch aus dem nächsten Zimmer. Der Subwoofer in Silber aus Aluminium dazu Gebürstet auf einem Sockel, und die Kleinen Kugelförmigen Satelliten mit der Schwarze Front. Die anderen Subwoofer dagegen sehen mir zu Klotzig aus. Empfehlenswert ist auch die Miglia Diva 2.1 Soundsystem die ist sogar noch Günstiger und Verbraucht bei Standby kein Strom da die LED ganz aus ist.
