    Mind you I would not mind someone giving me one of these for a second system. I can cope with bling just as well as the next person.

    That is the acme of vulgarity. Bling hardly describes it.

    Suspect the case cost more to make than the electronics it encloses. And what is the point of that meter? (Apart from giving a certain reviewer a massive tumescence!)
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
