I only have a player, in which you could put a CD on and you could hear the sound through speaker, we really don’t have a component, like you have the player on connected in the speaker. My sister has that one at home, we used it to listen to music, or when we do videoke or when we watch a movie. I mean I could also do that in our single player because I have two speakers after all but the problem is that my speaker won’t function properly at all. I thought to buy a crown xls power amplifier, maybe that is the only one that is lacking but I am still contemplating because on the second thought I hope I am wrong yet I think the speaker just gave up. We love to listen to music; sometimes my daughter would stick her USB with some songs on it early in the morning while we are doing our thing. You see listening to music can make our house works even so light, the kids absolutely enjoyed while doing house chores without hearing them complaining at all because she is listening to her favourite song. I just hope I can figure out what happen to my speaker so I can also buy an amplifier to have a better sound.
