Microlab M1910, 5.1 Speaker System Review
Up Close: Packaging and Contents
The Microlab Model 1910 comes in a predominantly white, reassuringly hernia inducing box. The exterior is regaled with graphics of the product within as well as giving details of the key features and specifications.
Ah, good old polystyrene...It's hard to beat when it comes to finding a material to securely cosset its contents. Packaging is actually split into upper and lower levels, separating the satellites from the Sub/amp unit.
Not only are the contents securely embraced in planet killing polystyrene (for which we are as it happens eternally grateful), but each item is also securely wrapped in a matte polythene bag. As these bags do not display any sort of health warning we can only assume they are safe to leave out for children to play with and put on their heads until they fall over and go blue. (no seriously, don't). Also included is a booklet of apparently docile Multilanguage instructions.
Recognising that the Sub/amp assembly is likely to be positioned under a desk or in the case of a lounge based home theatre setup, on the other side of the room, microlab have included a remote control and even some batteries in with the kit. The remote control enables the user to select the desired input. It also offers master volume and muting control as well as enabling the user to adjust the levels of the front, centre, surrounds and sub respectively. Strangely the remote does not offer the ability to put the M1910 into standby, for the simple reason that there is no standby. The unit is either on, or off.
