Edifier's R1700BTs are some of the finest PC speakers I've ever used - and critics and users alike agree - and today you can pick them up for $140 rather than their usual $200. That's thanks to a 30% discount at Amazon US when you clip the coupon on the product page.

These 2.0 speakers come with a classic wooden enclosure packed with modern conveniences, including Bluetooth 5 with aptX HD, a sub out port and two RCA outputs with one RCA to RCA cable and one RCA to 3.5mm cable provided. I like these speakers because they provide clean and crisp highs and clear mids, though bass can be a bit flabby.

As we covered the last time these speakers were discounted (to $160), the R1700BTs deliver excellent value for money, with a great sound stage and imaging that makes it easy to pick out individual instruments from music (or footsteps from an encroaching enemy), though of course a good gaming headset is the best tool for competitive play.
