Micca MB42 review: Compact, stylish speakers on the cheap
If size and style are more important, the Miccas win easily over their boxy budget-speaker competitors.

What kind of desktop speaker to buy?
I'm almost positive that **the R1280T and R1600T do not have crossovers**. There is a very good set of powered speakers in this price range that *are* built with a crossover: the Micca PB42X. They're less pretty than the Edifiers but they're objectively the better and more advanced speaker... and it's rare that you can ever make an objective comment about audio. Edit: just to clarify since this got a lot of likes, none of this means the cheaper Edifier models sound bad or you should be unhappy with them.

OK for the price point
Good bang for the buck. Are they the best bookshelf on the market? Absolutely not, but they will hold their own to speakers costing 50% more. The speakers are fairly well made, including acoustic fiberfill, and a clean crossover. On the downside, the cabinet is light so it tends to resonate at highe...

Micca PB42X | Powered Bookshelf Speaker Review | Under $150 | (They are awesome!)
I think they're they're really really high quality speakers and the sound just is way above their pay their but their price. I don't normally review speakers, so this is kind of new for a speaker of you.

Micca MB42X edge out Edifier R1280T to my ears
Well, after about six to eight hours each of critical listening with the Edifier R1280T and Micca PB42X, my audio jury has returned a verdict. Honorable audiophiles, the jury has determined that the Micca PB42X will remain atop my desktop as my speaker of choice. Both speakers are excellent for this...

maybe it is good for the price, but they aren't good.
I purchased these because of all the hype and review on the internet. First of all, the build quality is good and it looks great. The power adapter is small, but it doesn't feel cheap. But, I was disappointed with the sound quality. These speakers lack in detail and clarity. The biggest problem for ...

Micca PB42x $119. Buy a a 24 volt 5 amp power supply to drive them to 50 watts each - do at your own risk as they come with a 18 volt 2 amp supply but if zeos says it works, good enough for me. Edifier MR4 Powered Studio Monitors - $129. u/hardsj likes them enough at this price.
Very good speakers; just can't crank 'em up.
I gotta tell ya, these are good speakers. The sound delivered was smooth, even, clear. Precise you might say. And they were projecting the sound of an lp rounding a turntable. I'm no speaker expert, so I leave those folks to speak to the exact qualifications that go into first-rate speakers. I'm jus...

far exceeding expectations
Firstly, I like to call myself a low budget audiophile. I've never had much money but I know good speakers when I hear them. I would love to own a $30,000 setup but I doubt that will ever happen. The pb42x's are absolutely nothing like a proper setup. Not even close. But for desktop computer speaker...

Just ok
I've been looking for a replacement for my Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system that I've had for many years but finally quit working. The Micca PB42X seems to have glowing reviews across the www, but I am very unimpressed. There is detail, but it is dull and without character compared to my Klipsch. For exa...
