Microlab are a company operating out of China that we had simply never heard of up until now, which does seem strange because they are rather good at what they do. But more on that later.
In the world of Hi-Fi audio small sized stereo speakers for a couple of hundred go by the dozen. In fact, there are so many options out there that it's nearly impossible to hear everything on offer when making a decision.
Luckily, however, in the world of multimedia audio we do not have nearly the amount of confusion to deal with. In fact, we cannot think of any system we have tested to even compare the Microlab SOLO6C against.
That's how rare it has become to find a proper powered 2.0 system with a high quality finish. This is largely because of the crossover effect caused by the afore mentioned competition in the Hi-Fi world, making it almost not worth the effort by a company starting out to design a system from scratch.
However, having said that, the market for POWERED multimedia systems is not in competition with Hi-Fi speakers and thus is an opening for some really nice speakers.
