mamour, London Movie fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
It is a problem as it does not hae an optical out / in. It does not state this online. But the sound that you get out of it is probably the best that u will get for this kind of money by far. The preset equilizers are good but you can not adjust them which is a little frustrating.
Bad points:
No optical out / in for the audia which is a massice problem
