I just relocated a 50" Panasonic plasma for gaming duty for my teenagers (long story, had to be done), so it lost its associated sound system. The TV speakers are awful, and I didn't want to spend a lot just for them to game, plus space was very limited - i.e. no receiver plus separate speakers. I felt that Craigslist urge coming on , and found an old Altec Lansing AD104 soundbar plus sub combo for $35. This is a circa 2000 unit, before the word soundbar was even invented. Gave the guy $25, deal done. It has 2 3" speakers on either side of the controls in the middle, each speaker getting only 5w (!), and the sub is only 20w, with a 6" cone. The build quality seems good though, and when we hooked it all up last night, we were amazed. Sound is not bad at all, music or game noises - gets pretty loud, doesn't crack up, really astonishing for a total 40w system. I'm a happy camper, plus it sits perfectly inside the cabinet the tv sits on. No other point to this story!
