    Amazing. Nobody wants to admit that these are AC powered speakers. I finally found a review in Amazon where the reviewer complained about how short the power cable was.

    I just assume it if USB or battery powered isn't stated.

    #2, you're probably too young to remember when the sound card provided the power for external speakers.

    ^ Nope, I actually have some of those in a shoebox somewhere. In that case the speakers generally didn't have volume or on/off controls like these do, rather it was all handled through a software mixer app.

    It was a long time ago tho', long enough ago that you shouldn't expect to find any major brand speakers designed to be direct driven from a sound card unless they sell it bundled as such.

    These are junk. I wouldn't take them for free with a $5 bill taped to it.

    ^ Fair enough but those are portables, I meant to only refer to desktop speakers... and yes those exist still too but only junk nobody wants.

    More importantly, where are modern systems meant to drive them? EU regulations on headphone volume pretty much crippled the ability of portable devices driving passively amp'd speakers unless you hold them up to your head like bandless headphones.
