Microlab SOLO7C Review

Packaging and Contents

The packaging for the Microlab SOLO7C is quietly unassuming: no flashy graphics or glossy full-colour exterior; instead we're treated to a plain brown exterior which simply indicates the product inside and its technical specifications. The size of the box indicates just how large this speaker set is - no set of tiny satellites and subwoofer are these.

The front has a stylised view of the speaker set and remote control, with Microlab logo and slogan. This is mirrored on the rear.

The left and right side of the box lists product specifications in multiple languages and the packaging dimensions (excluded for brevity) respectively. The speakers are packed with solid 3cm thick polystyrene, providing a fair amount of protection and leeway for courier mishaps.

- 3.5mm stereo to 2RCA cable : 1

User Manual

The SOLO7C's User Manual is as detailed as you might expect, detailing the expected contents, features, technical specifications and wiring suggestions. This set differs from many other stand-alone living room speakers through the inclusion of a remote control, which is denoted by the 'C' in the product SKU. Microlab also have a version of these speakers available without remote control and necessary sensor if that suits your specific needs, though the availability depends on region.

The package is comprehensive overall, with no piece needing to be bought separately to get the speakers up and running so long as your audio can be output via a 3.5mm jack. Connecting an auxuilary source, for example a TV or stereo, will necessitate the acquisition of additional cables depending on the devices connectivity. Generally speaking 2RCA - 2RCA cables will be appropriate for this role, and are most often included with the TV/DVD player.
