The C2 established a new standard for high-end speakers with an independent power amplifier. With the launch of the C3, Edifier aims to make the C2 experience even better. Enjoy beautiful sound quality and an empowering listening experience. The new user friendly C3 is not just a simple multimedia speaker, but a full-fledged home entertainment center. The C3 adopts Edifier’s patented EIDC intelligent distortion control system (patent #: ZL200520018567.8) from the C2 and improves on it. This system will effectively protect the speakers from popping at extreme volumes. Think of it like an invisible friend, quietly looking after your speakers and your ears.
