Considering replacing it with something else, but I don't want to have to replace the existing speakers or rewire the rig. Isn't the a 1 for 1 that I can plop down in it's place?
I have been looking for a replacement but the issues are:
You need a system that you can use wires to speakers and not RCA plugs.
The other thing is it need to have a digital video output to use the existing cable to the TV when playing DVD's.
All the ones I have found is junk just like the RCA one we have.
The popping I have no idea why it happens but I suspect a bad capacitor on the circuit board.
I don't use it much now because I now have a TV with reasonable speakers that work great. So only when playing DVD's I use it.
