After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    When it comes to building a computer there are a few things that you just cannot live without.  Monitor and keyboard are a given and while speakers are not required for any sort of computing you'd be hard pressed to find anyone without a set handy.  In this review we'll be looking at a completely new set of speakers from Edifier called the Edifier e1100.  These speakers come in a 2.1 sound configuration meaning that you have 2 satellite speakers and a single subwoofer.

    Edifier has been building custom and high quality loudspeakers since 1996 and since then expanded to be one of the largest acoustical manufacturers in China with a total of 3 companies in China and North America.
    From a technical perspective the Edifier e1100 features the following

    Streamlined subwoofer housing
    High quality plastic composite subwoofer with high gloss finish
    Anti-resonant aluminum arch shape frame enhances subwoofer enclosure stiffness
    Integrated power switch and volume control design with anti-slip rubber  finish for better handling
    Convenient blue circular light surrounds the volume control knob
    Separate power supply adapter to maximize the use of subwoofer enclosure volume for enhanced bass performance.
    Striking satellite design with unique hi-tech drivers and aluminum frame construction.
    Unique downward firing subwoofer design enhances bass by reflecting sound from the ground.
