Commodore 1541 Ultimate-II Speaker

Wanted to post a quick note about this...

The Commodore 1541 Ultimate-II cartridge has a 3.5mm audio jack that can output emulated disk drive sounds. I wasn't sure what kind of speaker to use, so I took a chance and ordered this super inexpensive 3.5mm mini speaker on eBay. It was less than $1 and works! It's cool hearing the disk drive sounds and is helpful for knowing when the disk is being read. It's pretty quiet, since it's unpowered, but if you own a 1541U2 and need a speaker... This is a cheap solution!
