Rupert, Enfield Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Quality of picture, Deep blacks.
Bad points:
No built in Freeview HD Receiver, Sound is disappointing. Fortunately I feed mine through an Naim DAC, surprisingly sound sent directly from the Vbox to the DAC sounds much better than when it is sent through the TV to the DAC via HDMI.
