F/U $10 Altec Lansing USB Orbit Speaker

Here is the speaker []

I got mine yesterday which was a pleasant surprise. Yes, I'm looking at you Woot with 7 day to 2 week time from ordering to delivery. It is solidly made. Nothing cheap about it. Cord stores in the speaker base so it isn't loose and it even includes a travel case. Built-in stand as well.

The cool thing is that is doesn't require any drivers or external power. I plugged it in into my Hackintosh, selected USB device in System Preferences, and sound came pouring out. The sound is great. It doesn't have a ton of bass but it is a very clear sound and it will play quite loud with no distortion. Much better than just about every laptop's built-in speakers.

I think it is easily worth the $15 I paid for it.

I saw those at MSWF last year or the year before that.

Nice speakers, but I don't have a use for a USB speaker. Unless that will play audio out of the 'Pad, which I doubt.

Now if it had a 1/8" plug, I'd have grabbed some.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
