If like me you appreciate good sound at an affordable price, Edifier has always been a great company to hit for portable speakers, 2.1 speaker systems and iPhone docks. The company however up until now hadn’t really jumped on the Bluetooth crowd, however if you are indeed part of that crowd seeking Wireless music, you can now get your hands on the Edifier eSiena BT (note, not related to British Telecomms, BT stands for Bluetooth).
The iPhone and iPod dock, which curiously only sports 30 pin connectivity out of the box, features a 3 inch magnetically shielded subwoofer with a class D digital amplifier for enhanced bass frequency response. A remote control is also included in the price of this product, and it’ll also play music from USB or SD if your files are organized right.
The price of the above? £249.99 from Amazon.co.uk. PR below.
