I've got one, they are amazing once setup and working. Basically online content to a massive selection of films, TV and sports for free. In essence it searches the web for content (which is already there), but somehow blocks and filters the crap (penis enlargement ads etx) and allows you to view.

However it is a faff setting up, it can be unstable and the whole thing can crash. I bought one for my dad and I probably coming to my 4th time setting it up, as you can imagine he is not particularly savvy when it comes to these things. To complicate matters, the boxes posted are good but loads of poor variants which also lead to issues.
There are decent people out there who will set up the box and provide support for any further issues.
Also your broadband provider may also block content to sites, but again there is a work round.

Despite this, it is amazing. Imagine love film/Netflix on steroids!

I recommendations is to get it set up on your pc/laptop and give it a whirl and see if you get it working. Before jumping in.

Happy to send links if anyone is interested further.

Only marginally better than the MA-750i if anyone was considering these.

Are people buying headbuds for aesthetic reasons? Bought my far share because of that but couldn't part with my on-ear hd-25 now.

Mixing Sprockets with California laid back cool doesn't sit well with me but I'm considering 606 shelving. The side table is too far though.
