For most music lovers, they tend to choose a good speaker, let it be 2.0 Bookshelf Speaker, or for bass lovers, 2.1 Speaker system. The common thing that differentiates for an audio quality from the speaker is, the price. In general, high end speaker tends to give out perfect audio quality both for movies, gaming and music. However, low end speakers tend to give out average audio quality for movies, gaming and music.
Today, let’s see one of the best budget 2.1 speaker from EDIFIER, the Edifier E3100. The speakers were one of the most successful speaker that still rocks for 11 years in the Malaysian market. According to the official website, there is no stock for both orange and blue version.

Do you need sound-card to maximize the speaker audio quality performance?
No. Even an on-board sound-card is sufficient to maximize the audio quality. The important thing is, you should know on how to tweak the equalizer. I will further explain in the final verdict section.
Firstly, this speaker was well built. Most of the EDIFIER speakers do come with awesome design that not only serves as an audio pleasure, but as well as visual pleasure.
Secondly, when it comes to speaker, the main thing that concerned us is, the audio quality. I must say, the audio quality from this speaker is very awesome. In other word, the bass were solid and the clarity was crystal clear. Whenever I do my work, I always used to listen to A.R.Rahman songs. A.R.Rahman songs tend to make some people feel like they are in the “heaven” by listening to the melody. But, with EDIFIER E3100, you can fully experience the heaven in your room with such a nice crystal clear audio with solid bass.
Finally, if you are using an on-board soundcard, then, no worries, the speaker does perform well. If you’re using a sound-card, then it is a major plus point for you to fully experience the audio quality from the speaker.
As for my final word, you get what you paid for. EDIFIER not only concern for their audio quality, as well as their motto, “A passion for sound”, but, they make sure their motto delivered to the user that worth for their bucks.
