It might be a home-theater-in-a-box, like the kind that @fas42 has been talking about from Philips.
That's what Frank uses for his High End system, ain't it?

Well can't speak for everyone here but personally I don't go the whole nine yards and half bury my poo in my neighbors back garden ..
No, you come to New Zealand and do it here. :) (We have a problem here with tourists defecating in public places / tourist spots, and even walking into private properties and shi^^ing in the bushes.)

Used to. It's effectively been put in the bin; that is, put to one side in a heap of other stuff because I "wore out" one of the chip amps from the high levels I was running it at - it slowly went bad over some weeks ... and I was too lazy to swap in one the good, unused ICs also on the board.

And we have a problem, over in Oz, with Kiwis coming across as tourists and doing a runner when the debts mount up - What! Me, pay?!! Quite notorious for this, you take a big risk renting a place, say, to New Zealanders who are just out for a "good time" ...

That's what it seemed to be - I noticed an odd sound coming from that channel, somewhat erratically when playing low level sounds - something like poor connection buzzing. This slowly got worse, over some weeks, until it was impossible to listen to, then completely died. A bit of troubleshooting confirmed it was within the chip amp.

At least we don't sh^t in the garden...
But seriously, ratbags are a universal problem.
