Looks like the lowest price ever on the s10's, and a very good price on the s30 and s60 (according to CCC). These are very attractive speakers for the price, and if WAF is a consideration, you can do a lot worse. Very admirable performance, too. If I were currently in the market for home theater equipment I'd jump all over this deal. Nice find, OP!

Would the S10s be decent as main speakers for an apartment living room setup? I like how small they are; would they, along with the s30 center, be enough? Or maybe even just the S10s plus a sub for a 2.1 setup

I've been looking to get speakers to pair with a Fluance RT82 turntable (not yet purchased)

These Edifier speakers have been on my radar since they get decent reviews and are powered.

I'm by no means an audiophile.

Anyone care to weigh in If the S10's would be better choice? Or are they better for home theater use than music.

Cheers

Same question here. Do I need some kind of DAC?

I think they would be enough with a center channel in an apartment setting but only you can decide what's good enough for you. You would also need an amplifier or AVR to drive that setup. I would recommend getting a sub if you go with the s10s as they only have a 4in woofer. I'd try to get the s15 or s20 bookshelves instead if you don't want a sub.

You will definitely want a sub to go with the s10's because they're only rated to 67Hz. You'll be missing a lot without a sub to pick up the lower frequencies. And 67Hz is the Manufacturer specs, so that is probably generous, and/or recorded in an anechoic chamber where you can get optimal performance. People trash on the Polk PSW-10, and in fairness it won't be incredibly accurate, but it would fill in all but the lowest octaves of sound for you. You can often find them sub $100. If you're in an apartment, you won't want something to play super low anyway as it will definitely bug your neighbors. Keep in mind you'll need a receiver to power these.

Edit - tl;dr - yes, the s10's would work great as a small set up, and I'd encourage you to get the s30 if you can swing it. Center channel makes a world of difference if you're doing any movie watching.

These are unpowered speakers so you would need an amplifier to drive them. If you get an amplifier they will make great PC speakers but they may be a bit shallow on bass since they only have a 4in woofer.

Thanks for the input. Would a center speaker even make any difference if I'm only listening to stereo sources (OTA channels, crunchyroll, etc). And Im aware I'll need a receiver. Will probably look on OfferUp for a used one

If you're shelling out the money for a Fluance Turntable, don't skimp on the speakers. I'd spend the extra money and get some of the Fluance Signature Series bookshelf speakers. They sound amazing. They're slightly less than double the price of these s10's, but have much better performance in my opinion.

I was debating if I should go with the s15 and no sub but the clearance between my stand and tv is only about 9" and the s15 is 12" iirc.

This is what the setup currently looks like so I can't imagine anywhere I can fit those big speakers: https://imgur.com/cWuJl5T
I guess on the sides? But then it'll have wires showing which I'm trying to avoid

The Logitech pc speakers are temporary since the built in tv audio is terrible but the Logitechs sound "muddy"
