New speakers to replace my Logitech Z-5500 set: Edifier R1280T (my PC is at the far right on the photo, that thing below my screen is a passive NUC case. Close-up of the finish. It does look like genuine matte wood with structure. Vs Logitech Z-5500 satellite speaker. Connections. Overall I'm very happy, especially for the price. The sound detail is good, it's quite good at producing low-end which is remarkable for it's price and size. Also, no more subwoofer the size of a color laser printer beneath my desk. I'm yet to play games on them or watch video, but I'm hopeful since these are designed as PC speakers and not bookshelfs.
