Microlab Solo 6C Speakers Review – big sound at a small price

Review Score:
1 Flares 1 Flares ×

If you have just built an updated computer in 2011 then a new, high quality set of speakers should not be underestimated. There are no shortage of high quality speakers at a £200+ price point, but what if you have only £100 to spend? Are you left with only clinical, harsh, poorly designed budget speakers? Microlab might just have the answer with the Solo 6C set of speakers, designed by Danish audio expert Peter Larsen.

The Solo 6C claim to offer ‘rich’ audio quality with detailed acoustics, full bass and ‘vibrant’ treble. There is even a remote control in the bundle to offer control over volume, input, bass and treble. Their construction relies on MDF to reduce distortion caused by vibration and they have been designed to enhance the overall experience from compressed audio files, such as MP3′s.

    The remote is a great ideal, especially for a media center system.

    Th designer of these speakers used to make very high end speakers for a different audience. I agree their name is crap, but I bet these are really very good indeed.

    Very good value for money IMO. I like the design, more classic hifi than computer speaker, which wins it points.

    [...] Last week we reviewed a new budget priced pair of speakers, designed by Danish audio expert Peter Larsen. We were impressed with the overall quality, especially considering the modest asking price of £79.95. Are they worth consideration for a new upgrade? Watch our video presentation below and check out the full review over here. [...]

    Hello. I would like to ask for an advice here as I haven’t found any Microlab forums. I have just unpacked my new Solo 6C speakers. Connected them to my computer and switched them on, and noticed a problem straight away – a buzzing noise. It is not very loud but it drives me mad. I do not understand any technicalities but I don’t think the speakers should be doing that. The buzzing noise level does not change as I try to increase or decrease volume. Unplugging the stereo jack from my PC is not helping either. It only stops when I switch the speakers off at the back panel. Is it normal or is there something wrong with the speakers?

    Did you try more than one source? There should be no buzzing….

    If you mean a power source, then no, I haven’t tried a different one. But I have discovered that the back panel of the speaker with the amplifier gets burning hot, even without me playing any music. I just switch the speakers on and in a few minutes I could start frying eggs over there. That is definitely not right and I am returning the speakers. Hopefully the next set will be fine.
    Thank you for the interest Zardon.

    Sorry to hear that, sounds like a faulty amplifier inside the main speaker to me – would explain the buzzing sound. It should get quite warm after a while, but not burning hot.

    I am experiencing the same humming issue as described above by Jan. The speakers are brand new. Planning to replace them next week.

    Forgive me if I’m a bit skeptical about the T40 II’s sounding better than these; particularly after extended burn-in.
