Someone was carrying my ZXA1 down a flight of stairs. She fell, and the ZXA1 bounced down a few stairs before stopping. There's quite a bit of resonance in the plastic body, that I never want to hear again.

The person carrying it was OK. The ZXA1 has some scratches in the plastic, and a small dent, and concrete dust, in the grille.

It worked when i plugged it in for testing. No change in sound. I haven't stress-tested it -- not neighbor-friendly to do that.

Either lucky, or miraculous, or EV did a really good job when it was made. Or some combination.

Hope she was ok too, and not only the ZXA1!

Yes, she's fine. And we have new rules for who carries what, where.
