Joining the ranks of Edifier speaker system product line-up is the company's R980T offering. This speaker system is made up of two wooden encased boxes covering the role of active and passive units. Various permanently attached and floating leads are provided for connecting purpose along with a User Manual covering different languages for carrying out the straightforward set up process required by this speaker system.

Black in colour, both the units have a removable material front panel for those looking for a more Hi-Fi style appearance to impress casual visitors who come into contact with this speaker system. The active and passive units have dimensions of 140 x 226 x 197 mm (W x H x D) and are mounted on four circular rubber feet for a more secure and vibration-free positioning and performance. The active speaker, which assumes the right speaker's position during the initial set -up, is permanently attached to a 160 cm power lead with connecting three-pin plug. Located on the rear of this active speaker are sockets for connecting input and output style RCA plugs plus wire-clip attachments for linking the two speaker units using the supplied 246 cm red and black wire cable. A power on/off toggle switch and knobs for adjusting the volume and bass audio levels complete the layout of the active speaker's rear. With the role of the right speaker taken up by the active speaker, the passive speaker, with its single wire-clip attachment offering, has little choice but to take on the role of the left speaker in this audio delivery system arrangement. The appearance of a letter "L" on the rear of the passive speaker is there to give you a reminder..

Setting up this book shelf speaker system could not be easier. You can then simply need to link the right and left speakers using the wire clip-on lead before

connecting the power lead and switching on the power before choosing the input source using one of the supplied leads, measuring 165 cm and 168 cm. while not forgetting to adjust the volume levels to suit your listening needs.

As you will, no doubt, have gathered, all the various connections with this speaker system are of the physical type. There is no option for Bluetooth connectivity. Nor. to the regret of the couch potato, is there an option for remote control action. If you need to change the input audio source or adjust the volume and bass levels for the R980T. When this is necessary, it will require the listener to make the physical effort to carry out the required tasks. Audio quality is of a reasonable standard, as you expect from an Edifier speaker system, for this R980T speaker system which is priced at £59.99.
