Microlab Solo 8C Speakers Review

Introduction

Microlab are mostly famed for their speakers. They have a huge array covering everything from little stereo sets to some monster setups. We recently looked at their 5.1 setup which would be more likely to be found as part of a computer arrangement than in your living room.

Today we're going to be reviewing a pair of speakers that you will probably attach to your television instead, the Solo 8C. A monster pair of speakers with enough power to be suitable for deafening the neighbours, coupled with enough inputs to ensure that even the most obscure of arrangements is catered for. With wooden cabinets to support solid audio and minimise distortion, the Microlab Solo 8C promises to be a solution to all of your audio requirements. 

So without further ado, let's see what the Solo 8C has to offer.

Technical Specifications

Connectivity is definitely the star of the show with the Microlab Solo 8C speakers. Not only in the amount of options available to you, but the complete set of cables that is provided in the packaging to ensure you aren't left scurrying to your local audio emporium. The speakers themselves, with 60W RMS each, are certainly powerful enough to fill any room. One of the big benefits to a full-size set of speakers is the ability to have a separate speaker for each band for optimum audio fidelity.

Looks like the same flimsy remote that they had on the 7c, which would be a shame, much as I love my speakers, having to reach behind and use the volume control there, is a bit of an annoyance..

Other than that, looks like an awesome update to the design, and based on my experience with the 7c's, I would not hesitate if I were looking for a new set.

Well - speakers are great, only as ceryndrion mentioned - remote quality suffers. Had to replace 2x my Solo 7c and have no doubts this one gonna die as well.. Only dislikes that these cant be used as desktop speakers as they need ~3m to spread bass. Excellent for films next to tv.

Funny that you used Formula one for test audio, considering how crappy they sound now hehe.

These looks solid, I was considering some 7c's as they can be had pretty cheaply via amazon at the minute.
