  • Excerpt: So here I am, trying to setup my new audio setup with the supplied Optical Cable. The booklet that came with my Sony system is showing me a diagram telling me to route the cable from my TV's Optical Out, to any Optical channel on the audio unit. That doesn't work.

  • Pros: gelungene Präsentation, exzellente Animationen, witziger Kommentar
  • Cons: fehlende Spieltiefe, Aktionen wiederholen sich
