Hard to find a comparable set that has these features with remote and even optical input at this price range.

The manual does not state the RMS rating, which is the only downside that I could find.

Reviews seem to indicate best speakers ever or major shilling. I vote major shilling by whoever the original manufacture is. with that said, it doesnt mean it cant be a great deal.

Reviews quote the $50 price tag which means this isn't a deal

First review states this. They cannot possibly be rated at 80w RMS as the only draw .7 amps. So will presume the 80 watts is music power which seems reasonable. Therefore likely 40w RMS at 4Ohms.

Yea most (limited) reviews talking all technical. Most Amazon shoppers are not technical.

Doesn't add up

There are no reviews on Youtube. Are they that new? Amazon first listed them February 9, 2021.

They're on eBay for $70.60.

They look EXACTLY like a pair of Edifier speakers, the body not the back. The back is different.
The back has an optical-in. I've NEVER seen an Optical-In on a speaker this cheap.
The Edifers that look the same look to be of better quality even the looks but, the shape and design of the outside is the same.

There's a different pair of powered Edifier speakers that sells for $100 that is Amazon's best selling speaker of all speakers of all time. I don't think it has BT or Optical-In
The speaker in this thread has BT5.0.

One of the links below is a smaller pair of Amazon Basics I found a review of on Youtube and were sold on woot.com for $25.
Woot lists them as regularly $135. They sound good enough for their size, in the video, on my laptop speakers. The ones in this thread are bigger/better for $50.

I just got a pair of Sony SSCS5's to connect to a stereo receiver to add a BT dongle to it to connect a TV to it. I can't see why NOT to buy the speakers in this thread. The cabinets, cones and BT circuit boards cost more than $50 and that's not including the AMP, crossover (if there is one), speaker connectors, wiring, glue, screens and labor.

Here's the one this thread is about on Woot for $70. [woot.com]

No comments on reddit [reddit.com]

Youtube of smaller one, not the one of this thread. [woot.com]

Woot listing of smaller one, not the one of this thread. [woot.com]

Oops! Amazon does sell the smaller ones for $130 [amazon.com]

There is a YouTube video on the ones that went for $25 in woot. Build quality on this one should be along the same lines.

There weren't any reviews when I was watching this set when it came up at around $80. Reviews started hitting when it dropped to around $50. I think people were willing to take a gamble since it is Amazon and if it's junk they can return it easily. I'm super tempted to order a pair but I haven't yet as I have too many speakers as it is.

Ordered one, the reviews seem pretty detailed and don't appear to be fake. We'll see... I'll post back after I receive them next week (30 Aug)

The $25 Woot speakers from last month didn't have a remote. https://slickdeals.net/f/15185911-amazon-basics-active-bluetooth-bookshelf-speakers-40w-25-shipped-w-prime-woot?v=1
