The S330D comes in a rather large, black box with large pictures, and all the "goodies" in terms of specs and features laid out for your perusal.  The packaging was very neat and well thought out, and looked like it would survive even the clumsiest postman's hands. The S330Ds come with a user manunal, optical cable (an awesome surprise and inclusion!), some very long speaker cables, an RCA audio connector, the two satellite speakers, a volume control dial, and the subwoofer.  They give you a well-rounded package including a high-quality optical connector for a great audio connection.

Just the kind of thing I've been looking for. I've been searching high and low for some decent kit with an optical input!
