The sides of the box simply list the product specifications in a variety of languages.
Accompanying the speaker set is 1x RCA-to-3.5mm cable, 1x RCA-only cable, 1x digital optical cable, a handy remote control, a set-up booklet and power cable.
Inside, the R2730DB speakers come well protected by a wedge of polystyrene, and there is also a plastic sleeve around each individual speaker unit to prevent any scratches.
Once all the packaging and accessories are out of the way, the user is presented with a pair of very good-looking speakers.
The R2730DB speakers are entirely black – meaning they look stylish and will adapt very well into most environments. They are made from MDF, though the facia has a simple wood grain effect – which means the R2730DB set looks better than it would have if the panels were plain black.
The front panel, where the physical speakers are housed, is protected by a foam cover which is easily removed. Once that is out of the way, the three drivers on each unit are visible. The bass driver is 6½ inches (178mm), with the 4 inch (116mm) mid-range and ¾ inch (19mm) ‘tweeter’ drivers above it. You can also make out the bass reflex port just above the bass driver.
On the side of the right-hand speaker is the bass, treble and volume adjustment options. Bass and treble can be tuned to +/- 6, allowing a good degree of flexibility for each user to change the sound as they wish.
Furthermore, the back of the right-hand speaker also houses all the connections to and from the R2730DB set. There are dual RCA inputs, as well as 1x digital optical and 1x coaxial input – and obviously there is the option to connect via Bluetooth as well.
At the bottom of the rear panel is the power socket, as well as an on/off switch. There is also the accompanying ‘left speaker out’ cable to connect to the other speaker unit. Finally, and usefully, there is also a standalone bass signal output to allow users to make use of an external subwoofer should they so desire.
