For quite awhile, I looked at this every time it went on sale, but was unconvinced it could amount to much. When I finally bought it and tried it out, I was pleasantly surprised. The wiring is a bit inconvenient, with the control puck and the power cord permanently attached to the subwoofer, and the tiny speakers connecting there via a 3.5mm stereo jack (I added a 25' extension cable without excessive ill effects). The control puck has the power switch, loudness control, bass level (I can't help but wonder if some of the complaints about bass were posted before the writer found this control), source selector, and 3.5mm jacks for headphones and aux-in. I've been using this with a Chromecast Audio, mostly, and that has worked well, except that the puck defaults to bluetooth (which I have never used), not aux-in, at power-on. But since your hand is already on the puck to power it up, finding another puck button is not a big hassle, and the puck light ring switches from blinking (unpaired) blue to solid red when you select aux-in, so it's hard to forget. Ultimately, I had thought I'd be setting this up in this basement when I'm through with it upstairs, but it will probably stay up here in a supporting role.
