Currently using these R1280DB's with my PC setup (ASUS Prime Z370-A board, Realtek S1220A audio) for music, videos and gaming. They pack quite a lot of bass, which is very punchy and compliments electronic music genres, but also do well in other treble heavy stuff I listen to like J-Pop, Metal and instrumental tracks. There is no distortion in the bass reproduction and they have very good stereo separation with very little crosstalk between them, also there's no hiss or hum from the amplification, even at moderately loud volume levels. While watching movies, voices come through very clearly and the sound effects are very boomy.

Build quality is very solid with a MDF(I think) body and a wood grain veneer over the top. The cloth mesh cover is easily removed and exposes the speakers, they are connected to each other via (silver/copper coloured) speaker wire which is inserted into peg terminals. The active right speaker has Bass, Treble and Volume controls and has 2 stereo RCA, 1 Optical and 1 Coaxial input, the power cord is non removable. They also have Bluetooth for connection to phones, version 4.0 is indicated on the box. Cables included are 1 stereo RCA to RCA, 1 3.5mm to RCA and 1 optical cable, no coaxial cable is included. An IR remote is included with battery and can control volume, power, mute, input selection, Bluetooth and track back/forward, play/pause while connected to Bluetooth device.

Overall, very good for the price, I paid $109 AUD on an Amazon lightning deal, but would be OK with paying 129 for these, I would advise you to compare prices elsewhere if they are over 140 AUD. Also take note that the dates for dispatch and estimated delivery from seller to seller on amazon differ wildly, I went with Edifier Australia with fulfillment by Amazon and delivery was on time and prompt.
