Summary: I have owned these Sony SRS-A27 Desktop Personal Speakers with 2-Way Power Supply for quite some time now. I use them with my Sony ICF-SW7600GR AM/FM Shortwave World Band Receiver with Single Side Band Reception and, for listening to shortwave broadcasts and local AM stations in conjunction with...
Summary: First of all, this speaker is for the office and not for music or entertainment. It has poor sound quality, and it sounds worse than the $10 dollar speakers I got from my brother. If you're going to be using these speakers for entertainment, do not buy these.
Summary: ...and that's how they get you. The Sony brand adapter is listed at $39. You can buy an universal adapter for under $20(the sony is rated at 9v and 800mA), but there is a catch. The universal adapter's plug is too long! It won't make the proper contact with these speakers.

Summary: I had a pair of Sony speakers that had no power source (no batteries or AC adaptor)...and they worked fine for what they were. however, I wanted something that could be low with no batteries, but if I wanted to hear them outside with people talking etc, I wanted to be able to power them up and...

Summary: Initially I bought these speakers because they looked really nice, were made by Sony and were cheap. I guess none of that made any sense when I initally used them for music. These speakers are just bad for music.
Summary: Before buying these speakers, I purchased the Sony passive speakers for $6.00. Those were absolutely terrible. After the wire snapped, I decided to pay a little more for these...best decision I've made in a while. They are much louder than you would believe, and have surprisingly good quality.
