The sub wasn’t begging for death, either, mind you, as long as I was kind to it by keeping the volume down to sub-party levels. It’s cheap and cheerful, its remote volume control is handy, it looks nice, and it really doesn’t sound that bad. They are powerful, and the high frequencies, though not perfect, are quite respectable. DC power input, audio line-in.
