    "I needed some smaller types of speakers to put on the bookshelf for when I am closing down at my job as a librarian. We can listen to the music and stuff after hours. So I got these ones called the audioengine p4b and they rock the whole library. Its a good thing I don't forget to turn them off for the next day!"

    "This speaker fits alongside my bookshelf as I like the look of "tower" speakers. The sound is very good and picks up all the ranges and the deep sound it produces is good. The speakers are attractive and the price is good as well. "

    "Great sound and super easy to set up. I am using it on my desktop computer, so the Bluetooth feature isn't active at this time. I do like the fact that if in the future I wish to make use of the Bluetooth feature, I have that option available to me."

    "Edifier R12U-WHT are remarkably cheap at $20! They get the job done but obviously you are not going to get mind-blowing quality sound, I didn't expect to get high quality sound so I wasn't disappointed. This is definitely NOT one of the best bookshelf speakers for under $200, but it's one of the best for under $30. If you have up to $200 to spend then you'll want something higher quality. On the bright side you can throw $20 at these and use these while you look for something better, and you know you will always have backup speakers."
