Theyre not too bad with some EQ, they are just lacking given the lower tier quality/price. I have Solo 7C's in the lounge and they are so magical, Id love some 6C's for the desktop to keep the sound and shrink the size.

I ditched the microlab amp and use a couple of Marantz's for PC and hifi so that Im not relying on those dodgy shitty Microlab amps.
What's your budget like?

Budget is kinda low atm, maybe $200 just for passive speakers? Im just looking for some good deals that beat the Microlab Pro3. I got the SOlo 7C's for $200 a while ago so I expect there will be some variety if theyre available.
Doesnt have to be new at all, second hand speakers are worn in and well loved!

I might even get a cheap sub, because thats the only issue with the Pro3, is that they entirely lack bass from 100hz down, but some EQ can make decent sounds for the rest.

You can definitely try gumtree, there's a few vintage bookshelves on sale in the Brisbane area at the moment. Go ask some speaker guys on stereo.net.au and such for more specific advice as I'm actually quite new to the speaker scene.

On the headphone scene, I'm more experienced in.

The only worthy sale I saw in the Brisbane region for any bookshelf speakers was a set of Klipsch B20's with a centre (no sub? package usually includes that) for about $160. Seems reasonable, but theyre tiny little 5.25" cones and a horned tweeter. I cant be sure theyre even better than my Solo 7C's, which makes me think these are only good for completing a 5.1 surround instead of a decent 2.1
