Hmm... I went out and bought a 12' RCA cable yesterday. I didn't check the box to see if there was one already in there.
Oh yeah!!! This chair sounds pretty damn awesome when hooked up. I hooked the RCA to the TV's output and when I play the XBOX360, like someone else said in a review, it sounds like you're IN the game. Also, once I scootched down in the chair, the speakers were more towards my ears, instead of sitting upright in the chair and having them down by my shoulders.
In regards to the other post commenting about movie theater chair recliners -- that's fine, however, those are much more bulky and can't double as a PC desktop chair (maybe it can, but who would want to do such a thing?). This chair can, and it's a solo seat. I don't need another love seat or a 3 person "couch", I just needed a gamer chair that wasn't low to floor. I can honestly say that I have scored higher and did much better in the games I played in the Gamepod chair vs. sitting on the couch. This chair is great!!
$199 is an excellent price... if you're able to get one at that price. However, if they're all sold out... then it's not beneficial to you (or anyone else after the fact). I know I felt much better buying the chair at the price I paid, as opposed to buying it from Target. I was just about to buy it from Target (currently $489.99 minus 15% and free shipping), but something told me to check Ebay, and I was very happy to see that it was $349 + free shipping, because if you search on Google for the Gamepod 1.5, you'll see that other stores are still selling them upwards of $800! BTW, I received a $600 stimulus check courtesy of the government that paid for this chair and the Xbox 360, so it makes me feel good knowing that I did my part to help the economy
