Edifier Luna 5 Encore iF500


For many, the term “lifestyle” is as synonymous with “pricey,” just as with similar phrases “cool” or “designer.” Anyone who's ever wandered into a Brookstone store, browsed Sharper Image or dug into their SkyMall catalogue while flying can tell you...

Big, room-filling sound ; Slick “touch sensor” buttons are fun and easy to use ; Trouble-free iPod/iPhone interface ; Handy (if large) remote control

Unique look may not cater to everyone’s tastes ; Occasionally thin high frequency response ; Precariously positioned external input ; No video output

The Edifier Luna 5 Encore iF500 blends a unique, eye-catching look with premium sound and convenient, functional controls.

Review: Edifier iF500 Luna5 Encore


Fabric on front with a glossy black or white back and matching glossy iPod dock, the system includes a huge AV system-style Infrared remote control, plus an integrated FM radio tuner, audio cables, a required wall power adapter, twelve different Dock...

There are other little oddities, too. iF500's iPod dock has entirely capacitive buttons on its top surface, which sometimes are accidentally triggered when you rest part of your hand against the dock to adjust the iPod inside. It also includes an...

Edifier Luna 5 iPod Docking Station -


Need a good-looking iPod docking station but can't quite decide which? Then perhaps you might want to check out Edifier's captivating Luna 5.

Edifier Luna 5 encore iF500 iPod dock


The Edifier Luna 5 encore iF500 is an iPod dock that gets its name due to its space-age design. With its giant sphere-like shape, this docking station...

Great audio quality no matter the genre of music, works with range of MP3 devices and CD players

Unusual design may not have wide appeal, remote control layout is not intuitive

Luna 5 iPod dock houses a subwoofer, two tweeters and two mid-range speakers, delivering good quality audio at a great price.

Edifier Luna 5 iPod speaker review


Dubbed the Luna 5, presumably because it's big and round, can the latest iPod speaker from Edifier impress? We get listening to find out. The new speaker, which goes under the title of the Edifier iF500 is large, round and black and sits on your desk,...


FM radio frustrating to use, remote too big, no DAB

A case of one with plenty of potential that just failed to deliver

Stuff magazine


Edifier's Luna 5 is a different and distinctive take on the iPod dock. Whether that's a good thing is another matter…

If you’re after a distinctive-looking dock at a reasonable price, the Edifier could be for you. But it's not quite the all-rounder we were hoping for

Edifier Luna 5 iPod Dock


Several people I spoke to while auditioning the Luna 5 said something along these lines: “Oh, Edifier, they started out making really crappy computer speakers.” If that's the case, congratulations are in order for the Beijing-based...

Looks good but sadly sounds rather average for the outlay demanded

Expert review by:

Edifier Luna 5 Encore iF500


If you have an iPod and want a premium docking station that produces good sound, then the Luna 5 Encore is definitely worth a look.

Good audio output; Responsive touch sensitive keys; Comes with various connecting cables; Remote; Treble and subwoofer control; FM

Users may accidentally press the buttons while manually browsing through the iPod menu; iPod control on the remote may confuse users; Piano black finish prone to fingerprints

Edifier Luna 5 iPod dock


The Edifier Luna 5 is not an iPod dock for the discreet. It's rotund and black, and will sit glowering on your shelf. Design-wise, it echoes that classic, the B&W Zeppelin - the curvy wonder that John Lewis insisted was only for the coolest member of...

The design and the sound quality

The lack of a DAB radio
