Summary: There's no way I would afford this subwoofer when it was new! $1,000 was way intimidating no matter how good the performance till up to this day. Still is a definitive "Vintage's best" from the land of the rising sun (JAPAN). Again! Stuff like this might not be possible for me then!, Thanks to EBAY!!!. I got mine for $40.00, Although, there was no remote included, I was able to find a brand new original remote for this subwoofer 14 years from now.
