I would choose Edifier.

the Edifier has larger drivers and probably better bass extension. the satellites are made out of MDF. Corsair satellites are made out of plastic.

It is the lack of reviews for the edifier speakers that I find really weird. The only reviews I could find are in german. :(

Which configuration would you pick :
Edifier S730D + mainboard optical/coaxial or
Corsair sp2500 + sound card (Asus xonar dx/creative titanium hd)
They both cost around the same amount of money from a buget perspective. Which option do you think is better and why. :confused:

the Edifier S730D has analog input. you can use a sound card.

Indeed. But that would increase the cost of the set up. Sure I can get a sound card later if I think it is needed but I'm talking out of the box value.
