On the side of the chair are your requisite volume and tone controls, along with a headphone jack. The power cable now connects to the side as well, making it much more difficult to unplug it accidentally. It screws in as well, so you?ve gotta be yanking pretty hard to get that puppy out. There?s a power button on the base unit, along with plugs for the composite audio and the lead to the AC adapter. The base unit?s separate, but it?s durable, so you don?t have to worry about banging it around too much.
