本文选取三位外国人对于目前在售的3款主流桌面音箱的试用评测。这三篇简短的评测均有一个共同特点,那就是平实好用。抛弃了一些所谓专业老师以及职业评论人华而不实且似让人懂非懂的专业名词,真正站在消费者的角度,来评论这三款主流桌面音箱的音色特点和长处短处。希望能给大家在选择的时候多一些帮助。

Elevate 5

Decent desktop speakers
出色的桌面音箱

By monkuboy

These speakers come with a nice satin black finish and the construction quality/fit and finish appear to be well done. While they dont seem to have "high density wood cabinets" like the description says, they are certainly solid enough for desktop use.

这对音箱有非常漂亮的黑色漆面和不错的做工,虽然没有看到类似“高密度合成板材”的描述,但是可以肯定,这对音箱的强度一定足够用作桌面音箱了。

In the box are the two speakers, a stereo mini 1/8" to RCA cord for connecting the source signal to the right speaker, and a 1/4" cable to connect the right to the left speaker. Also included are easy to understand directions and some thin pads for the bottom of the speakers. They are easy to set up.

两只音箱是同时在包装中的,还有一条小三芯转莲花立体声的线材用来连接音箱和音源,还有一条3.5大两芯的连线用于串联两只音箱。还有非常好懂的简易指南以及音箱脚垫。它们非常容易设置好。

I connected mine to a Schiit Modi USB DAC connected to my desktop PC. The music was from .flac files played via Foobar 2000.

我把我的Schiit Modi USB DAC解码器连接到我的PC上,音源选用了Flac的无损格式,播放器用了Foobar 2000。

Overall, the sound from these speakers is clear and clean, with somewhat of a forward quality. That is, there is an emphasis in the middle and upper middle ranges that makes voices and instruments in that range seem to stand out more. Bass is adequate and I am thankful that Alesis had the good sense not to go for what too many manufacturers do these days, which is emphasize the bass so that you wind up with boomy and muddy sound. There is a switch on the back to enhance the bass, which I found is better to just leave off. I find the bass is perfectly adequate with the switch in the off setting.

总的来说,这对音箱出来的声音是清晰和干净的,音质还是比较不错的。特意强调了中频和中高频,让人声和这个频段的乐器更加突出一些。低音量感足够,并且我非常感谢Alesis作为制造商的判断,没有过分强调低音而使得声音浑浊并且脏乱。并且在音箱背面提供了一个低音增强的开关。我发现低音增强开关在关闭状态下会有最完美的恰到好处的量感表现。

There are a couple of bass ports in the front of the speaker. I like this design better than having them in the rear because it allows the speakers to be placed closer to the walls without making the bass too prominent. Those of you reading this review may get the idea that I am anti-bass. Im not - I just dont like to have exaggerated bass or exaggerated anything when listening to music.

每只音箱都有一对前置的低音导向孔。我非常喜欢这个前置的设计,因为这样的设计可以允许音箱放置在距离墙面更近的地方而不用担心低音太多。那些看我评测的人也许会觉得我是一个不喜欢低音的人。其实我只是在听音乐的时候,不喜欢过分夸张的低音或者任何过分夸张的东西。

Are these suitable for studio monitors? No, but they do sound pretty good. You can turn up the volume fairly high without distortion and without the cabinets starting to buzz. I recently reviewed a similar pair of desktop speakers made by Samson and these Alesis speakers are hands down better than they are in all respects. Even the use of a 1/4" cable to connect the left and right speakers is nicer than the hair-thin speaker cable that came with the Samsons. The latter was also guilty of boomy, muddy and exaggerated bass and had some cabinet resonance problems when turning up the volume. The Alesis do not suffer from any of these maladies.

这对音箱是专为工作室设计纯监听吗?我认为不是。但是他们的声音品质非常的棒!你可以把音量开得很大,却没有一点失真,箱体也没有嗡嗡的共鸣噪声。我最近重新听了一下类似的Samson的一款桌面音箱,Alesis的这对音箱在各个方面都好上不少。即使Alesis左右串联用的是大两芯的音频线,而Samson使用了家用音箱串联常见的发丝线,Samson的声音仍然存在浑浊,脏,以及大音量下箱体共鸣噪音的问题。而Alesis则并没有这些问题。

Overall, these speakers present clean sound and are easy to listen to. Id recommend considering them for desktop or portable device use.They are the best speakers for me,in the $200 area!

总的来说,这对音箱声音非常干净清晰,易于聆听。我建议桌面播放设备或者移动便携设备来使用它。对于我来说,这是200美金范围音箱中最好的!

Eris E4.5


Awesome Studio Monitors!
出色的工作室监听

By M Cox

When I first turned on this system, I forgot that I had muted my speakers prior to setup. The volume was about 70% of full power and when I unmuted these speakers, it almost blew me out of my chair. There was no distortion that I could hear - just crystal clear loud sound. So theres absolutely no shortage of power. The power amplifier is in the right speaker and is a lot heavier than the left speaker.

当我第一次打开这套系统,我忘记将我的音箱静音了。音量旋钮拧到了差不多70%的位置。当我打开声音的时候,吓得我差点从椅子上掉下去。但是它的声音在我听起来并没有失真,非常干净的大音量。所以这个音箱功率上并没有什么不足。因为音箱的功放模块在右边,所有比起左边重了不少。

There is an auxiliary input and headphone output on the front of the right speaker along with the power switch and volume control. Even though these speakers are somewhat larger than most desktop computer speakers, the black color helps keep them from being so conspicuous. There is a switch in the back that allows you to select different AC power presumably letting you use these in foreign countries. The speakers are a ported bass reflex configuration. There is a Low Cutoff switch adjustment on the rear of the right speaker to select 80, 100 Hz or flat response. If you expect full deep low frequency sound, I think youll want to use a powered subwoofer in addition. Thats what I plan to do. Theres another switch called Acoustic Space. I could not detect any difference in the sound in any of the three selections - sounded the same to me. I admit my hearing is certainly not what it once was. It appears to be attenuation related: 0, -2 and 4- db.

这对音响有一个辅助输入接口,和一个耳机输出接口在右边音箱的前面板上。尽管这对音箱比很多桌面电脑音箱大,但是黑色的外观颜色能让音箱整个看起来很瞩目。音箱背后有一个开关能帮助你选择AC电源输入电压,以适应不同国家的标准。这对音箱有低频控制功能,有一个位于右边音箱后面板的低频切除开关可以选择80Hz,100Hz或者平直。如果你想要更好的低频,我觉得你会想要一个低音炮配合这对音箱使用。这也是我计划去实现的。它还有另一个开关,名字叫Acoustic Space。我并不能分辨这个开关的三个不同选项之间有什么区别,听起来都一样。我得承认我的听力大不如前了。这个开关给出了0,-2和-4 db三个不同选项。

While these powered speakers may be somewhat expensive for computers, they can be used for speakers for your television set as well. There are a multitude of applications for this powered speaker set, such as soundstage speakers. If these speakers are within your budget, I dont think youll be disappointed with the sound, especially if you have a powered subwoofer to augment the deep low frequency sounds.

当然这款给力的音箱也许对于电脑音箱来说有些昂贵,当然它不仅可以作为电脑音箱,还能用作电视扬声器,并且效果不错。除了这些,这对音箱还有许多用途。比如小型影院音箱。如果这对音箱的价格在你的预算内,我认为你不会对它的声音失望。特别是在你有一个给力的低音炮用来搭配使用的时候。

Finally,I purchased a second pair of these speakers so that now I have two powered speakers and two unpowered speakers. I have a stereo audio transmitter and two individual wireless receivers for left and right channels that I connected to the two powered speakers and used them as my rear speakers in a 5.1 audio surround sound system. So basically my two rear speakers are wireless and powered. I have the two unpowered speakers on each side of my HDTV and connected to my Marantz 7.1 receiver. Its really overkill to use the powered speakers as my rear speakers, but it is the only technique whereby I can get surround sound unless I rip up the carpet in the master bedroom. I am reluctantly using a different unpowered brand for the center speaker.

最终,我买了两对E4.5。现在,我等于拥有了两只有源音箱和两只无源音箱。我用一个立体声音频发射器和两个单独的无线接收器分别接收左声道和右声道,之后我连接两只有源音箱用作我5.1环绕系统中的后置音箱。所以,基本上我的两只后置音箱是无线并且有源的。我把两只无源音箱分别放在我的高清电视两边,链接我的Marantz 7.1 接收器。将有源音箱作为后置音箱确实很浪费,但是这是我唯一能将整个系统搭建好并且不用破坏我主卧室地板的方式。我非常不情愿的使用了其他品牌的无源音箱作为我的中场音箱。

Mackie CR4


Know what you want, buy without hesitation.

By marcos.p

Background: Im coming to these by way of two different sets of "computer speakers." First, the Logitech Z-5500 5.1 system and, more recently a "holdover" set of speakers the Logitech Z200. The former is iconic and well-respected in certain circles, the second is more like a $20 pair of throwaways. Perhaps more relevant is that Im also coming to these by way of a few different sets of headphones: The Sennheiser momentums, Audio Technica ATH-M50, and Philips Fidelio L1. All of which I find great for different reasons.

我的背景:在我买这对音箱之前,我先后用过两套“电脑音箱”。第一套是Logitech Z-5500 5.1音箱,更近期的是一堆Logitech Z200。前者在一些圈子里是非常有代表性并受到推崇的,后者更像是20美金一对的便宜货。也许跟今天这对CR4音箱更加相关的是我的几个耳机:Sennheiser的momentums,Audio Technica的ATH-M50,和Philips的Fidelio L1。所有这些我都能找到一个它们的不同之处。

First Listening selections: I have a pretty large .flac collection of music, so I can appreciate listening to something other than your average 128kb mp3 file (as far as digital music goes). These speakers DO expose poor fidelity tracks. The first thing I turned to was some Buena Vista Social Club, a bit of Pearl Jam, some tracks from the Roots, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, a bit of Enya, and finally some classic Beastie Boys. I turned to movies and sampled Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Baraka, Zombieland, and The Town.

第一次聆听选歌:我有一个非常庞大的Flac无损音乐库,所以我可以聆听比普通的128kb的mp3文件更加优质的音源。这对音箱能暴漏音源的不足。一开始我听了一些Buena Vista Social Club的歌,一点Pearl Jam,一些the Roots,Tom Petty和Heartbreakers,一些Enya,最后是一些经典的Beastie Boys。之后还有一些电影原声,比如加勒比海盗:惊涛怪浪,天地玄黄,僵尸小镇等。

Performance: My very first response at all was a smile. Take that for what its worth. I will say that these speakers are really great, but you have to understand what youre buying. With a 4" midrange and .75" tweeter, these covered about 85% of my catalog with the juicy detail that both of my previous speaker systems were never intended to do. I like them a lot. For movies, I didnt notice it at all (which was great!). In movies, the bass was tight and punchy overall. I would consider these ideal for that purpose. I would also say that this would make them great for gaming as well. They really seem to be glorious little workboxes for the vast majority of the listening time. They produce more than enough sound for any reasonable application and if you think they dont, you either have damaged hearing or youre 15 years old and are working on it.

性能:我的第一个反应是一个微笑,说明这对音箱是值得的。我会说,这对音箱确实很棒。但是你必须理解你买到的是什么。带有一个4寸低音单元和一个0.75寸高音单元,这些给我带来的享受是之前的音箱系统从未给我带来的。我非常喜欢这对音箱。在看电影时,我无法注意到这对音箱的存在(这点很棒!)电影的声音中低频紧致并且有力。因此我产生了一些想法,我认为这对音箱在游戏的时候表现应该也会很棒。这对音箱绝对是你绝大多数聆听环境下的最佳工具。这对音箱能土工足够大的音量在大多数引用场合下。如果你觉得不是,那你不是听力损伤就是到了叛逆期。

Incidentals: I bought these knowing exactly what I wanted and hoping these would fit the bill. I wanted a decent set of speakers for watching movies and occasionally listening to music in my home office. These are great for that. Im a little bummed about the lack of sub-bass, but I cant fault the speakers for that because, again, they arent rated for it in the first place. Besides, for me, I honestly I do more music listening through my headphones.

杂记:我买这对音箱,是因为我知道我想要的,并且希望能够达到我的要求。我想要选择一对音箱用来看电影或者在我家中的办公室里听音乐。这对音箱非常适用。虽然我对这对音箱的超低音有些难过,但是我并不能怪这对音箱。因为这对音箱最初就不是设计来听重低音的。况且对我来说,我听音乐时更多是用我的耳机的。

If circumstances were the same, I would buy these again without hesitation. If I had a bit more room in my office, I would probably try to pick up the JBL LSR305s (for $100 to $150 more) since they extend down to a claimed 43Hz (which I believe since I sampled them at Guitar Center).

如果再给我一次选择,我仍然会毫不犹豫的选择这对音箱。如果我的房间更大一些,我可能会考虑JBL LSR305S(100美金-150美金价位中),因为它的下潜能达到43Hz(自从在Guitar Center听过之后我确信这一点)

Hope this helped. 

希望能给大家带来帮助。



小编总结:

在这三款主流的市售桌面音箱中,Alesis 的 elevate5 是其中尺寸最大的一款,达到了5寸的低音单元和1寸的高音单元。就低音下潜来说,elevate5无疑有更多的优势,这也导致了在对它的评价中并没有出现低音不足的情况。这三款音箱均是150美金上下,声音的风格表现又各有千秋。如果你想升级你的桌面音箱,可以在这三款中多多选择和参考,真正的好声音,就在它们之中。
